CLOTHED PAINTINGS II _ 2017.

Danica Karaicic and Aleksandar Dimitrijevic

Clothed Paintings II is the second iteration of collaborative art project between Danica Karaicic and Aleksandar Dimitrijevic started in 2013. Installation spans in between art (painting) and clothes (fashion design and dressing), and includes artists’ main themes of interest—elements of game and play typical for Aleksandar’s practice, and haptic experience of dressed body in architectural space, central motif of Danica’s research of perception of built environment.

Installation consists of paintings and fabrics with sewed garments, stretched between paintings using zippers. Visitors are encouraged to change the position of fabrics in the gallery space, and to try on the exhibited garments. Through movement and activity in space, the human body becomes “living” part of Aleksandar’s game, as well as part of the process of space-making. The exhibited garments enhance bodily awareness for each participant, simultaneously allowing visitors to become a part of the art work and architectural space in becoming.

CLOTHED PAINTINGS II

Danica Karaičić i Aleksandar Dimitrijević

Clothed Paintings II je drugi deo autorskog projekta između Danice Karaičić i Aleksandra Dimitrijevića, započetog 2013. Centralni deo čini instalacija koja kreira sponu između umetnosti (slikarstva) i odeće (modnog dizajna i odevanja), zadržavajući u sebi osnovne teme iz prakse oba umetnika – elemente igre kod Aleksandra i taktilnog iskustva odevenog tela u arhitektonskom prostoru, centralnog motiva Daničinog istraživanja na polju izgrađenog okruženja.

Instalacija u sebi sadrži slike i tekstil sa prišivenim odevnim predmetima, povezanim sa slikama korišćenjem rajsferšlusa. Posetioci su ohrabreni da menjaju pozicije materijala u galerijskom prostoru, istovremeno imajući mogućnost da neki od delova instalacije obuku na sebe. Kroz pokret i aktivnost u prostoru, ljudsko telo postaje ’živi’ deo u Aleksandrovoj igri, ali i deo procesa kreiranja prostora. Izložena odeća ima za cilj da poveća osvešćenost o telesnom svakog učesnika, u isti mah dozvoljavajući publici da postane deo umetničkog rada i arhitektonskog prostora u nastajanju.
