On Thursday, October 29th, at 7pm, we’re opening the exhibition “Instruments of Activity,” at the KROKODIL Center. Together with world-renowned artist Biljana Đurđević, we’ll be presenting a series of prints from her graphic novel, which will also be available for purchase.
Published by Besna kobila, Đurđević’s graphic novel is an unconventional critique of capitalism. “Instruments of Activity” speaks about the apathy of man, about his unwillingness to wake up from the newly created world in which he lives in order to produce and feed a systemic Hydra which penetrates all spheres of life, imposing consumerism as the essence of contemporary humans,” explains the artist explains about her newest cycle, which will be presented at the KROKODIL Center.
“In this process, the creator of a product is, at the same time, its consumer, encoded to be a permanent slave to the system in order to remain a part of it. The long-established indoctrination through the media has become the basic means of manipulation which unites all men, regardless of the apparent status.”
The launch and opening of the exhibition will be held with the author, designer Borut Vild, and art historian Branislav Dimitrijević. The three of them will be discussing creative process behind “Instruments of Activity,” the inspiration for the paintings and Biljana’s work in general.
Join us on October 29th at 7pm and enjoy the artwork of one of the most important artists from the Balkan region. Prints will be available for purchase for the entire duration of the exhibition, which will end at the end of the year.
The opening will be live-streamed via the Krokodil Engaging Words YouTube channel.
