Serbia Reconsidered - Imago Mundi
Contemporary Artists from Serbia
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Saša Janjić, Katarina Mitrović, Claudio Scorretti, Irina Ungureanu
Universal affinities and tragedies of misunderstanding, frosts and thaws. Memory and rejection of memory. Screams of the soul and voices of hope. 136 Serbian artists illustrate their country, as restless as it is interesting, suspended between the horizons of multi-ethnic coexistence and a national that is apt to become the ideology of the nation; amid regrets for the past and longing for the future. An impressive diversity of techniques (painting, photography, collage, sculpture, embroidery and stitching on canvas) and materials (earth, pigments, pieces of coloured pencil, iron, rubber, cork), through which established masters and emerging talents offer their reflection - sometimes ironic, in other cases painful – on the restless present of Serbia and on the future to come.
Serbia Reconsidered. Contemporary Artists from Serbia is an Imago Mundi collection, a cultural, democratic, global, non-profit project, promoted by Luciano Benetton with the aim of creating the widest possible mapping of the different contemporary artistic experiences of our world. In Imago Mundi, each country is represented by the works of established artists and new talents, commissioned with the maximum freedom of expression, whose only constraint is the 10x12 cm format.
