Everybody fucks everybody

He approached the research through his own experience in situ and multimedia artistic practice. His works start from the very meaning of the material – earth – (material and planet), which he connects with geographical and political concepts and work in clay. Through the architecture of the space and the historical role of the place in which Terra takes place: it takes traces of the building, uses bricks, tiles, the shape of the chimney and the method of imprinting letters in clay, which are characteristic of the industrial tradition of Kikinda. Apart from the emphasis on the specifics of the place, the author approaches the criticism of the contemporary socio-political situation in the world. The monumental relief column uses the language of glorification, the triumphal sculpture of the ancient period, on which there is a kind of representation of the world with the names of the countries between which the word fuck is repeated, as an ironic sarcastic comment on mutual relations and the current economic and political situation.
