video performance / public intervention 2019

This is our world (original in Croatian: Ovo je naš svijet) is a paraphrase of famous work by Željko Jerman This is not my world (original in Croatian: Ovo nije moj svijet) from 1976. While Jerman’s statement, however nihilistic, still offers an escape into his own, artistic world, since it suggests an existence of another world besides this one in which we all are forced to live, my statement doesn’t offer the possibility of escape. It’s a cold, simple thruth – this is our world and we all made it this way, this world is a consequence of our collective actions. There is no I anymore, but We. My statement was written with petroleum oil on 7 meters long canvas and hung in front of oil rafinery in Sisak.
