Far…so faraway…

Branko Miliskovic
Performance: Far…so faraway…
Duration: 3 h 30 min
Ron Mandos Gallery, Amsterdam
July 31st, 2009
Photographs by Rosanne van der Meer
Dedicated to Jochem Rotteveel
 

Far…so faraway… is slightly pathetic title which is trying to express that melancholic state of behavior, a state of permanent desire to see something or to find something which has been lost a long time ago but ,somehow, still exist in parts of our brains.
It is also the necessity of hoping and waiting, constant hope that something or somebody will suddenly appear.
In this performance I would like to draw attention to my eyes, the rules of watching and observing for a long time, ending with the disillusions, a usual finish for our expectations.

Performance was firstly performed for video in January 2009 and recently on 31st of July 2009 I performed  live  as a part of annual exhibition in Ron Mandos Gallery entitled Best of Graduates 09, in Amsterdam.

  1. Sometimes we indeed look for something that is long lost. How unfortunate to have missed it. I likeit to read the story behind it and see a few pictures. Sometimes the idea is larger than a persons mind. Nice!
