:: Verica Kovačevska

NAĆI MESTO
Lokacija: Novi Beograd; Salon
Period: 31.07.2009, od 19:30 do 20:30 

Naći mesto je jednočasovni interaktivni performans, koji se paralelno dešava na Novom Beogradu i u Salonu Muzeja savremene umetnosti Beograd, 31. jula 2009. godine.

Verica Kovačevska će šetati centralnim delom Novog Beograda, gde je izgradnja novih objekata najintenzivnija. Tokom šetnje publika će moći da upravlja njenom putanjom i da je prati uživo, preko Google satelitskog snimka Beograda u Salonu. Kovačevska će fotografisati nove zgrade (koje ne postoje na satelitskom snimku) mobilnim telefonom i slati u Salon.

Suočavanjem prošlosti i sadašnjosti, realnog i virtualnog, i prisutnog (vidljivog) i nevidljivog rad se bavi ubrzanom promenom i urbanim razvojem Novog Beograda, preispituje moć i ograničenja savremene tehnologije i uspostavlja poetsku vezu između realnog i zamišljenog.

Performans Naći mesto će biti dokumentovan, a video će se prikazivati od druge nedelje avgusta do 6. septembra.

TRACE PLACE
Location: New Belgrade; Salon
Period: 31.07.2009, from 7:30PM to 8:30PM

Trace Place is a one-hour live interactive performance, taking place simultaneously in New Belgrade and Salon of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade, Serbia, on 31st July 2009.

In Trace Place, the artist will perform a walk in the central part of New Belgrade where most construction activity is occurring. During her walk, she will be navigated by the audience in the Salon, who will be able to follow her movement on a Google Satellite View of Belgrade in real-time. During the walk, she will take pictures of new buildings (that are not visible on the map) with her mobile phone, and send them in real-time to the Salon.

Combining juxtapositions such as past and present, real and virtual, and visible and invisible, the piece will reflect on New Belgrade’s rapid changes and urban development, question the power and limitations of modern technology, and establish a poetic link between the real and the imaginary.

Trace Place will be documented by video, to be screened in the Salon between 2nd week of August until 6th of September.
