The solo exhibition A Blank Map was open at the
Kula Gallery (Belgrade, Cetinjska str. 15) from June 2 to June 19, showing photographs taken in Sarajevo between 2014 and 2020.
Essay about the city, written by my friend Maša Seničić, was also placed on the walls of the gallery, initiating a dialogue with the photographs.
Walking as a method connects both of our authorial views of Sarajevo, which suggest a dynamic reading of the city by accumulating individual experiences and perspectives. Sarajevo seeks engagement from observers and travellers, but also a commitment to recognizing its complex historical, cultural and political context. As an author whose photographic practice is primarily encouraged by movement across the Balkans and Europe, in this series I present common scenes that stand out with atmosphere or location-specific details. Separated from everyday life, they become raw depictions of the place.
Some of the photographs, along with the essay, make up a two-part bilingual (Serbian/English) publication named after the exhibition. A limited edition of numbered and signed copies is available for purchase either at Kula Gallery or directly through this website.
