Kunsthalle am Hamburger platz
Artists are present (2013)
Artists: Veljko Zejak, Marina Markovic, Boris Sribar, Darko Stojkov, Selman Trtovac
Veljko Zejak asked the artists to write a simple message on a bed-sheet. A message which is related to their artistic position. After that the artists were covered and their bodies casted in the sheets on which “AZIL (asylum – rem. of the translator)”, “UTOPIA”, “YUG” etc. was written.
At the moment when the visitor enters into the gallery he first perceives a group of bodies which are lying on the floor and are covered with bed-sheets. At the beginning he thinks that somebody is lying or that a serial murder has just happened and that he befell at an inconvenient place. Then he perceives that there is nobody under the bed-sheet, there is only the presence of the artists and their simple message.
