Contemporary art exhibition at the Serbian Pavilion Expo 2015
The pavilion of Serbia at Milan EXPO 2015 opened the exhibition of contemporary art ” Circle of Life “, organized by Gabriella Carlucci and presented at the cluster Bio-Med. The two artists Marko Gavrilovic and Sandra Vucicevic, chosen among many Serbian artists from the gallery Ca ‘ d’Oro, gave strong and provocative interpretation of the theme of the Expo, which invites move away from consumerism and a way of life that does not take into account the consequences of human actions on the planet and their impact on the future.The exhibition was on display until the end of September.
Marko Gavrilovic about his works:
CIRCLE OF LIFE, SHARK SCULPTURES
Sharks have been the main characters in my paintings and sculptures for a few years. I chose these particular species because they are the synonyms for power, freedom, movement, and fear.
I found a lot of parallels between sharks and humans, which might be the main reason for the conflict between us.
Fascinated with a diversity of Nature from my early age, continuing to admire its powers through my art, I explore the possibilities in which Nature and built environment will coexist.
Installation Circle of Life gives some answers to the question why are we, from all the living beings, the ones that destroy and exploit nature to its limits.
Curators, Gloria Porcella and Aneta Ilic, bring the work of artists Marko Gavrilovic and Sandra Vucicevic, commissioned by Galleria Ca’ d’Oro into the epicenter of art and culture, at the EXPO Milano 2015 with “Big” special thanks to event organizer Gabriella Carlucci.
