Ilija Šoškić (Dečani, 1935) is a member of the first generation of Yugoslav artists who worked in the spirit of the new artistic practices. Before entering art, he was an athlete and was the state champion and representative of SFRY in the hammer throw. He attended the art school in Herceg Novi, the Academy of Fine Arts in Belgrade and the Art Academy in Bologna (Accademia di belle arti). From 1969 until 1972, he lived in Bologna and from 1972 in Rome. He gained world attention through his cooperation with the legendary Gallery L’Attico in Rome where he exhibited together with Jannis Kounellis, Luigi Ontani, Michelangelo Pistoletto and others. Famous critics such as Emilio Villa, Achille Bonito Oliva, Mario Diacono have written about him. He exhibited at the most important international and Yugoslav art manifestations (Venice Biennial, Trigon, the Yugoslav Documents, April Meetings, etc.) He has lectured at the most eminent European art academies (Düsseldorf, Rome, etc.). Ilija Šoškić’s artistic practice spans more than five decades and his work encompasses performance, tableau vivant, the art of behaviour, guerrilla art, cultural and political mythology, mathematics and the metaphysics of nature.
