Spaces of Excessivity

Salon of the Museum of Contemporary Art, 14 Pariska St
May 22- June 28, 2015 (opening of the exhibition on Friday, May 22, at 7pm)

Artists: Ana Knežević, Nemanja Lađić, Marko Marković
Curator: Žaklina Ratković

The exhibition “Spaces of Excessivity” presents authors who deal in their artistic practice in a specific way with the notion of space. With different approaches, the artists problematize the reception of space, its structure, homogeneity, plans. Through the works of Ana Knežević, Nemanja Lađić and Marko Marković, the exhibition poses a number of questions, like the ones that explore the relation between the flow of time and the spatial components, the kinds of spaces/places we remember, and the ones in which we dwell in the present. Are spaces special entities with their own memory, created through time by the activities of its users, by inscription of symbolic meanings? What are the possibilities of surface going out into space, and vice versa, of transformation of spatial constants of a three-dimensional object/space into an accumulation of lines/data at the surface? There is also the question whether the notion of utopia, as an unrealized ideal, as a place that exists nowhere, has been replaced by Foucault’s concept of heterotopia, a specific arrangement pattern, a space outside of any concrete place, another space, a space of excessevity. The exhibition likewise explores the relationship between the concept of time and the concept of space, what are the modalities of relations space – light – sound, the way in which a work of art occupies space, and whether art is a space of excessivity.
