Kojetristvaribistevipreporučilituristima koji dolaze u Srbiju? – Posebno je zanimljivo videti naše „betonske utopije“, odnosno ono što su srpska i jugoslovenska arhitektura i spomenička skulptura dale u periodu od kraja četrdesetih do osamdesetih godina prošlog veka. Značaj te arhitekture je prepoznatljiv i prikazan je na izložbi umuzejuMoMA 2018. godine. Tijana Kojić is a painter who has shown her works at numerous exhibitions, both in our country and abroad. She is already recognised around the world... “It isparticularlypleasingtomewhenIhaveanopportunity tohear howobservers experiencedrawingas thebasicmarbling ofmywork, and that thisdrawingofmine isprobablya fruit of anarea where it is particularly valued and nurtured as a form of expression.” Inwhich ways is the Serbian art scene changing, andwheredowestand inrelationtoworld events in art? “Our scene is a diverse systemofmanymutually incoherent worlds, grounded in varying starting points. The actors on that scene have always been interested in getting to grips with new ideas that come from far away, but also plunging into their own cultural fundamentals. This undertaking, thus, goes both intobreadths and depths. Amajor retrospectiveexhibitionof theworkof MarinaAbramovićopens inSeptember.What does this exhibitionmean to you, as anartist, and what does it means to the local art scene and its positioning internationally? “When these kinds of major artistic events happen, I think they represent speci cmoments during which the di erence between the periphery and the centre begins to fade and the world strives to become multi-focal. That potential multi-focal quality is signi cant to our scene. Apart from that, we will have an exceptional opportunity to see how this celebrated artist has processed radical ideas through her own practises, surrendering herself to her artistic work both ecstatically and enthusiastically.
