The exhibition entitled “Walk” is implemented through temporary and permanent artistic interventions on the facades, pavements and the green areas of the Savamala urban quarter.
A walk through Savamala mostly includes the green area along the Sava river bank. The streets, buildings and narrow pavements of the old urban quarter of Belgrade, burdened with heavy traffic, are the least attractive part of the city for strollers. Without a specific thematic framework, each of the implemented works explores the possibility of an encounter in the existing environment of Savamala.
The intervention on a facade made by Nataša Kokić discretely offers to a potential stroller an image of the reflected urban reality of the city which makes room for a possible retreat.
Bojan Radojčić’s work placed on the crumbling walls, through an image of a child, raises the issue of our relationship with the past and memory that are symbolically connected with the Savamala quarter iself. Has the history of Savamala disappeared in the frequent floods?
The sculpture Ministry of Silly Walks by Mića Stajčić, set up in a public place, by its form and location re-examines the nature of monument-related culture in the contemporary structure of cities.
As an open platform of a large number of artists, the Museum Box reacts to the current situation of the art system in the country, and to the current cultural policy. The self-organized artists create their own museum, which is mobile, open and adaptable to place and location, designed for strollers, accidental passers-by, citizens and tourists. The work conceived in such a way also becomes an example of an out-of-the-system collective action that challenges the nature of the institutions, and opens an alternative possibility of an encounter between the work of art and the audience.
