“Edge Effects / Serbia”, final showcase exhibition of the European project Frontiers in retreat will be opened on Monday, 27 November at 8 pm. As the project comes to an ending, the multidisciplinary dialogue about ecology was explored on several locations in Europe, of which some locations in Serbia were a temporary residency for several artists: Belgrade, Zlakusa, Ečka, Bor and Sirogojno.
The multi medial international group show will present contemporary work of artist participating in the five year long Frontiers in Retreat project. Besides the previous artists in residence, who were working and creating in Serbia, several local artists will be showing work corresponding to the project theme.
During the five year period of the project, the audience was able to meet international artists and some of them have shown their work in Contemporary Gallery of Zrenjanin back in 2014. Mirko Nikolić, Joanes Simon-Perret, Quelic Berga Carreras, Sara Maria Kariranta, Nabb+Teeri, Carl Giffney, Company i Radhildur Ingadottir will present the results of creative processes inspired by ecology and self sustaining development. In addition, local artists, Dušica Dražić, Vladimir Bjeličić, Tijana Radenković, Mina Piščević and Vjeko Sumić whose artistic practice includes ecological issues, will be also presented, thus continuing the dialogue on ecology from their own point of view, from documentary, to conceptual and critical approach.
Edge Effects / Serba will have an extensive side programme, including workshops, museum tours with artists, video projections followed by discussions with the artists. The side programme schedule will be published on web and FB page of KC Grad. We are kindly inviting you to take part in any of the side programmes and contribute to the project goal by further developing the dialogue on ecology, an important topic for the future.
