“Lep život kao eksces”

Remont gallery 

From the 18th of February until the 7th of March 

Belgrade artist Srdjan Veljović will present on the 18th of February exhibition “Beautiful life as excess” which is a sort of continuation of  the multi-year project, and represents the embodiment in a personal and intimate photographic documentation of his family.

Veljović in a way, as young art historian Vladimir Bjeličić said, realizes reenactment of the past exhibition with the same title from 2005, but this time  skeptical and from a distance, and explores  a given topic in another direction  by redefining  exposed photos  and introducing the new element – the video.

Discusses simultaneously photographic media (traditionally a nice photo) and a fundamental pillar of any society – (hetero) family, Veljović finds monotony and repetitiveness of imposed social constructs, ironically performing the thesis of beauty of life as excess.
