The artistic project “Transformations“ started as an initiative focusing on gathering of international artists from Europe and Serbia. Its aim is to engage a young artistic scene of Western and Eastern Europe in a common exchange of experiences and artistic practices whith the purpose to educate and to promote contemporary art. The project represents a continuation of collaboration between national author Predrag Popara and Italian painter Roberto Coda Zabetta who made the first important steps towards an approach between Italian modern art and Serbian contemporary scene.
These authors are also the founders of the Artistic Association “Funnel“, a sort of a platform which aims to offer exchange of experiences and to develop a collaboration between our surrounding countries, with a common purpose to contribute to the development of a new and more dynamic exchange of ideas in the area of contemporary art nowadays.
The project “Transformations“ analyzes a specific phenomenon of agression that – being present in mass-media – becomes everyday life of a contemporary human being. Shifting borders of tollerance, it assumes a form of normality which tends to be accepted without any moral judgments. That phenomenon of society transformation and changing of its moral codex infallibly brings changes that normally affect two directions.
Firstly, the agression stimulates creation and desire towards a progress, but on the other hand it paralyzes the senses, creating even more agression, with no chance of returning back. Therefore, a transformation is also a response to survive at any cost, regardless the fact that humanity, a principal human feature, ceases to exist.
Therefore, we could consider an agression as a sort of supreme work of art, that leads a contemporary world both towards progress and self-destruction.
