Tracing the milieu - what were you thinking?
Curator: Marija Bjelić
Marija Iva Gocić i Boban Živanović
Exhibition: I am a Tyrant
March 12th - March 22nd 2019
This is my space.
I gave myself the right to own it.
I own it.
I am a part of the collective thought.
I am a representative of the collective thought.
I am an artist.
I am a tyrant.
This is a movement.
"I am a tyrant" is the materialized voice of an object in its surroundings. The object is treated as a part of a wider context of an immobile community that fights for its place. It corresponds to the functional needs of the present moment, simultaneously looking for its status in time. The city remembers the past and records it in layers. Karađorđeva Street has the immortal role of building, preserving and deepening the local identity. In line with the burden it carries and immaterial values, today it serves as a critical mediator - a link between the place and the heterotopy.
'I'm a tyrant' by Marija Iva Gocić and Boban Živanović is the second in a series of 3M3 exhibitions in the window of the Collective Gallery, framed by the theme "Tracing the Milieu - What Were You Thinking?" established by Marija Bjelić, curator of 2018/2019 season.
