Exhibition Fragments II: Belgrade
Exhibition Fragments II: Belgrade

The open air exhibition by Vesna Klačar-Nedimović is an integral part of the program “Days of Belgrade”

Klačar-Nedimović dedicated her series of artworks Fragments II: Belgrade to her hometown after being inspired by Belgrade’s historical architecture on her holiday in 2010.

Even though she moved to Australia in 1991 she often says “I left Belgrade, but Belgrade never left me”.

Olivera Vučković, Program Coordinator at Public Enterprise “Belgrade Fortress” says she recognised the story of an artist living thousands of kilometres away but still inspired by the Belgrade soul. Her poetic portrayal of her city through photos and maps as prints will be enjoyed by the many visitors of Kalemegdan Park.

The exhibition features traditional and contemporary prints on large panels.

The Sava Promenade at Kalemegdan Park is a destination, which carries a rich history and is a must see in Belgrade, popular with locals and tourists.

The series of artworks “Fragments II: Belgrade” show an architectural façade overlaid with a map that describes the way the city is threaded into the artist’s memory, exploring her personal, familial and cultural ties to the city of her youth.

Klačar-Nedimović overwrites her images and text rather like the process of layering contemporary cultural over all that has gone before. In this context the use of text adds information and an entry point that is both evocative and documentary, the organic and sinuous topographic lines of natural features and rivers alike overlay architectural images that are man-made in their perfect curves and straightness.

In Klačar-Nedimović’s images we may all access the familiar sense of retracing the past in our present (Louise Martin-Chew, IMPRINT Magazine, vol 48, no. 3, 2013).
