Universal Objects: BFFs1&2
Slovenia 2017
2:50 min

Universal Objects: Best Friends Forever 1&2 portrays pressured digital representations. While in reality many layers of our personality are hidden or confined within the physical limitations, the avatars are potentially boundless. Due to commercial streamlining their gestures are rarely altered beyond reality – while a single click or incidental words easily can explode into raging online-phenomena from the quietness of our homes.
In Vujinović’s work the boiling emotional pressure deforms the actual body. These uncannily distorted shells trigger our empathy, as the brutalized communication is not disconnected from the body anymore…

The on-going screening series Phantom Horizons
presents digital as well as analogue works that question the paradigm of linear perspective, seeking for a new kind of “status perspective” [Bedeutungsperspektive]. The latter was a development of medieval painting, in which the size of figures is determined by their hierarchical significance. Extending this approach with deconstructivistic ideas and contemporary possibilities of film creation, the presented works open up multifaceted, unseen horizons.
