Abstract:

Contemporary nostalgia sits at the intersection of imagination and memories. Not only is it a tool of redefining identities, but it is a powerful agent of social unification and cultural integration. In my thesis exhibition works I construct a visual interpretation of the concept and the experience of nostalgia through the abstract forms and movements of monument-like, large mobile sculptures made of coloured and mirrored acrylic. Through my imagined pen-pal conversations with the late Yugoslavian president Josip Broz Tito, my research and exhibition posit that memories of places, people, events, and sensibilities can be translated effectively into abstract objects that are at once evocative and representational.
