Speculative Scenography: Implicit Monuments

To see work scroll to the right

In this work, the fragility of ordinary narratives is echoed in the fragility of its monuments.

Identifying the period of 'SFRYugoslavia' as a monumental theatricality that shaped the collective past, the project perceives destroyed private dwellings as scenographic remnants of this theatricality.

 

 

Each of these spaces reveals personal suffering; they are authentic and tangible links to the past. From a scenographic perspective they provide an evocative tool for understanding the turbulent history. In recognising them as true places of memory, a scenographer assigns these intimate spaces a leading role in tracing the notion of the post-war melancholic identity.

Seen as scenographic afterimages, they allow a view into intimate spaces that have been ravaged by war, and social and political trauma.

In this respect, the intimate becomes monumental.
