Devojke iz grada, 2010

Nas tri, Maša, Veca i ja, živele smo zajedno tokom studija u Beogradu, u Karađorđevoj ulici, otprilike četiri godine. Onda se Maša odselila, a doselila se Ana Marija. Nakon otprilike godinu i po, napustile smo taj stan. Ja sam našla stan na Novom Beogradu, u tom stanu živele su Ivana i Andrijana. Pre toga, počevši od 1998. živela sam sa Aleksandrom, Ivanom, Marijom, Anom, Snežanom, Natašom i sa još jednom devojkom čijeg imena ne mogu da se setim; u Starca Vujadina, pa u Majke Jevrosime, pa u Volginoj, pa u 14. decembra, pa u Karađorđevoj. Iz ekipe koja je živela u Karađorđevoj, u Beogradu je ostala da živi jedino Veca. Za ostale, migracija se nastavlja – nedovoljno smo urbane da ostanemo u Beogradu, nedovoljno ruralne da se vratimo kući.

Instalaciju čini sedam letećih lavora – u tri se nalaze video projekcije sa isečcima amaterskih snimaka nekih svakodnevnih akcija: Maša pere svoje plišane lutkice, ili idemo po torbu na autobusku stanicu, ili Veca priča o starim SF filmovima… u ostalim lavorima muzika, špica za Sex i grad, Đorđe Marjanović – pesma Beogradu, Maša čita svoju kratku priču, Slip Knot…

Centralno mesto zauzima lavor sa “Devojkom iz grada”. „Devojka iz grada“ – pesma Miroslava Ilića i čuveni spot sa Sonjom Savić za mene predstavljaju idealnu paradigmu našeg urbano-ruralnog identiteta, konstantne borbe između velikog grada i ostatka zemlje, šizofrene podele uzrokovane neravnopravnom raspodelom političke i ekonomske moći . Sonja Savić kao pardigma neshvaćenog umetnika, žena koja se nije snašla u velikom gradu u jednoj maloj zemlji. Sonja Savić rodila se i odrasla baš tu, u Čačku.

Girls from the city, 2010

Three of us – Maša, Veca and me – shared a flat in Karađorđeva street during our studies in Belgrade, for roughly four years. Then Masa moved out, and Ana Marija moved in. After a year and a half, we abandoned that flat. I found another place in New Belgrade, where Ivana and Andrijana lived. Before all that, starting from 1998, I lived with Aleksandra, Ivana, Marija, Ana, Snežana, Nataša and one other girl whose name I can’t remember, in Starca Vujadina, then in Majke Jevrosime, then in Volgina street, then in 14 December street, then Karađorđeva. From the gang that lived in Karađorđeva street, only Veca stayed in Belgrade. For others, migration continues – we’re not urban enough to stay in Belgrade and not rural enough to return home.

Installation consists of seven flying basins. Three contain projections of homemade video clips of everyday activities: Maša washes her soft toys, or we’re going to collect a bag at the bus station, or Veca talks about old SF films… The other two contain sound installations: title song for Sex and the City, Đorđe Marjanović’s ‘Song to Belgrade’, Aleksandra Jovanović’s short story, etc. The last two basins contain sensory installations. The central position has the basin with Miroslav Ilić’s song ‘Girl from the city’. The song and its legendary video with Sonja Savić for me present an ideal paradigm of our urban/rural identity, the constant struggle between the capital city and the rest of the country, the schizophrenic divide caused by uneven structuring of political and economic power. Sonja Savić represents a paradigm of a misunderstood artist, of a woman who was swallowed up by the big city of a small country. Sonja Savić was born and raised in Čačak.
