PIKASOV DEČAK SA LULOM
Sada u Beogradu, sada i nikad više

“It takes a very long time to become young”
– Pablo Picasso

Autor i izvođač: Branko Milisković
Vreme: 19-21h, nedelja, 31. maj 2015.

Performans „OVO (NI)JE DEČAK SA LULOM“ inspirisan je slikom Pabla Pikasa „Garçon a la Pipe“ naslikanoj 1905. godine koja pripada njegovom ‘’Ružičastom periodu’’. Ova slika predstavlja mladog parižanina koji u levoj ruci drži lulu, a na glavi nosi venac od cveća. Slika je godinama menjala vlasnike sve do 5. maja 2004. godine kada je na aukciji u kući Sotebi (Sotheby) u Njujorku prodata za do tada najvišu svotu novca u iznosu od neverovatnih 104 miliona američkih dolara. Aukcijska kuća Sotebi je odbila da otkrije identitet kupca, međutim nekoliko godina kasnije otkriveno je da je privatni kolekcionar zapravo poznati italijanski magnat Gvido Barila (Guido Barilla), vlasnik Barila kompanije.

U ovom performansu, umetnik „pozajmljuje“ Dečaka sa lulom i izlaže ga, kako bi bar na kratko, publika dobila priliku da ponovo vidi taj portret. Slika „Dečak sa lulom“ je prodata biznismenu, takoreći oteta od očiju javnosti, i sada najverovatnije, kao kapital u formi umetničke slike jednog od najvećih umetnika modernog doba, čeka najpovoljniju šansu da bude ponovo prodata za mnogo veći novac. Sa ciljem da napravi „kontra težu“ ovom konceptu, umetnik koristi filozofsku osnovu jedne druge slike čuvenog belgijskog umetnika- Rene Magrita (Rene Magritte) pod nazivom „The Treachery of Images“, odnosno „Ovo nije lula“. Fuzijom ova dva dijametralno različita koncepta, umetnik nastoji da postavi pitanje: Da li je ovo dečak sa lulom? Ovu tročasovnu živu instalaciju je 2. juna 2012. godine naručio festival TROUBLE #8 iz Brisela, da bude izvedena u okviru koncepta ‘’Velika galerija živih skulptura‘’ u teatru Les Halles.

U Galeriji 12 HUB, nakon prve samostalne izložbe ATTENTION ! HERE I AM (2014) i performansa THE SONG OF A SOLDIER ON WATCH (WW3 LILI MARLENE) u teatru la Comedie u Remsu, feb 2015, Branko Milisković premijerno će izvesti obnovljenju verziju ovog performansa koji će trajati puna dva sata u hipnotičkom slow motion-u gde će beogradska publika po prvi put dobiti priliku da vidi Dečaka sa lulom, sada i ovde / sada i nikad više.

PICASSO’S BOY WITH A PIPE
Now in Belgrade, now and never more

“It takes a very long time to become young”
– Pablo Picasso

Author and performer: Branko Milisković
Time: 7 p.m.- 9 p.m., Sunday, 31st of May 2015

Performance “This is not a Boy with a Pipe”, basically came as an inspiration from early Picasso’s rose period painting “A Boy with a Pipe” painted in 1905. The oil on canvas painting depicts a Parisian boy holding a pipe in his left hand and wearing a garland or wreath of flowers. On May 5, 2004 the painting was sold for US$104 M at Sotheby’s in New York City. Sotheby’s did not name the buyer though sources say that it was Guido Barilla, owner of Barilla Group. At the time, it broke the record for the amount paid for an auctioned painting.
In this performance (tableau vivant) an artist ‘’borrows‘’ ‘a Boy with a Pipe’ and exhibits, allowing the audience to be able to see the art piece that has been literary stolen and hidden for private pleasure/business of some Italian magnate. In order to make the contra line he took a philosophical context of another famous painting by Rene Magritte which was entitled ‘ This is not a Pipe’. So fusing those two paintings / concepts he wanted to ask the question ‘Is this a Boy with a Pipe?’ This 3 hour-long living installation was firstly commissioned in 2012 for TROUBLE #8 performance festival at Les Halles theatre in Brussels. It was a part of the curatorial concept by Antoine Pickels entitled “The Great Gallery of Living Sculptures.”

At G12 HUB, after his very first solo exhibition entitled ATTENTION ! HERE I AM (2014) and his one man opera THE SONG OF A SOLDIER ON WATCH (WW3 LILI MARLENE) at La Comedie de Reims (2015), Branko Miliskovic will give a Serbian premiere of this performance which will last for 2 uninterrupted hours in a slow motion, giving an opportunity to Belgrade’s public to see it, here and now, here and never more.
