The artworks drawn on in the curatorial mission of this exhibition venture into bodily and corporeal depictions, constructions and allusions. These span Avant-Garde experimentation in Serbia and ex-Yugoslavia, transitory existentialist notions of the liberties of the region’s consumerist period and go into the realm of the post-historical effects of new art.
The exhibits are initiated through a common South Slavic heritage as artistic fissures in its social and psychological anatomies and invoke the effects of political and historical terrors/attrocities of the recent past and their aftermath on the construction of the present. ‘Scales of Anatomies’ works on the common notion of the human corporeality of material culture and its ironies, up to the post-communist and neo-liberal resignation of the contemporary world.
The show is based
on artworks from the collection of the
