Nina Knezevic Lines of FlightOpening: Tuesday 19 May, 6-8pm Dates: 19 May-5 June 2009
The Deleuzian term lines of flight is part of a vocabulary dedicated to emphasising how things connect rather than how they ‘are’, actions and tendencies that could evolve in creative mutations rather than a ‘reality’ that is an inversion of the past. Since 2002, I’ve repeatedly immigrated between three cities (Belgrade, Wellington and Sydney) and progressively compiled a fascicular autobiographical archive (containing elements like familial photographs, correspondence, travel memorabilia etc). I use site-specificity of each city and the elements of the archive as key mnemonic, experiential sources. I seek to connect the process of making art to the temporality of lived experience.
Lines of flight, presented at Bus Gallery, is a body of work created exclusively while living in Belgrade for six months in 2008.
