Room 20 | Petar Aleksic | A Well Kept Secret
His exhibited work includes a tapestry and paintings from the series A Well Kept Secret.
As templates for this works, mythological and religious scenographies and motifs are used, but with the eviction of actors from canonical images. Instead of a mere interpretation, the series deals with the appropriation and reconceptualization of physical space, and consequently with the mental image that remains within us. And the need to shatter the reality of illusions and to build new moral paradigms of 21st century human, in the gap between seemingly achievable abundance and the need to be excluded from everything.
