I consider drawing as an inter-disciplinary and communicative tool that engages with people and the places they inhabit and produce orientating a playful approach and invitation to how we see and experience the world.

Drawing, whether it be devised as a plan, sketch, set of instructions, map, outline or notation depicting actions, processes, experiences as well as a method for thinking out ideas can provide a platform to develop a discursive exchange between on the one hand the action of drawing…

Reflections – a series of works probing information neighbourhoods; first, those which I carry in my consciousness as knowledge and second, those which I am collecting through new observations. I would like to underline that no work of art starts from a zero point, but from a historical position in which the author and a new space, a new form or a new material are meeting, where both are already involved, and marked with characteristics or experiences which are not…

On the photo is Bishop Metodij Zlatanov, metropolitan of Macedonian Orthodox Church.

The idea of the project is to include reality in the art object, in the sense of a ready made. In the same way there were included real armies in the process of making a photography in our project NSK Garda. In the project IRWIN, Processions 2006-2008 different religious personalities and institutions were included.

The painting (IKON) used in the Procession was: Malevic between two Wars from 1984, size…

Desert in a Desert

A year ago, when I accepted the offer to prepare a one-day exhibition or a whole-night project in Golo brdo, I started contemplating the specifics of the artistic-exhibition complex. Is it better to enter the fortification that reminds of Gaudi’s constructions, or would a traditional exhibition in the adjoining building to the left of it (if the view of the complex is to the North) be a better idea? Maybe the exhibition would be better off…

Architectural drawing: a performance and an installation

The architect Leo Modrčin makes drawings and exhibits a series of animated spatial studies. Drawing is performed in the time span of a 8 hr-work day on the day of the event. The content of the drawings is a personal and spatial interpretation of the two-dimensional diagram by Stephen Hawking, depicting the birth of the universe. The drawing will be executed on the walls of the exhibition space chosen by the curators, depending on…

The work of art is defined by context. Outside the cultural context and with the disappearance of social and cultural ties, the value of the work of art changes and, the more it is removed from its context, the more it is based on its immanent characteristics. Should this removal from context be radical and absolute, these characteristics would end up being incredible and bizarre because it would be impossible to connect them to meanings in which they would have…

We are well aware of the state in which the artist, as a subject with an irrepressible need for a creative rearrangement of reality, takes over his position, often frustrating, in the whole process of creation and social absorption of the work of art. As a matter of fact, in the modern conditions where the traditional direct relationship between art and public has been lost, this process greatly depends on the development of the artificial apparatus a society is capable…

In Lepoglava jail for hard criminals I interviewed several prisoners, who voluntarily agreed to take part in the project.
I focussed the interview on their childhood: what were

their favourite games, which of their heros they believed they had more in common, what they liked about them most and why, what they imagined they would be when they grew up… The project took few months period. I’ ve selected four interviews. Because of outspoken machoism among the prisoners and…

With his critical view of reality, Šeremet questions some common places of human nature, his attitude to reality, existence and spirituality. By spending his life of both man and artist in Slavonski Brod, a small town lacking a strong cultural scene like that of bigger cities where it can generate creativity by interaction alone, Šeremet creates his lonesome but quite unique artistic path. Perhaps his insistence to survive in such an environment resulted in Šeremet’s artistic expression being characterised by a tendency…

Even though Vlado Martek (1951) has been present on the contemporary artistic scene for more than thirty years, there are still difficulties with the identification of his work and consequently, with filing his art in the corresponding critique folder. This only means that his art is unpredictable and changeable; these features connect his art to some of the general tendencies in art today, which is more or less all that can be said about Martek from the position of folder…
