BALKAN WALZER 2004
5 april – 20 may

The Balkan-Walzer (2004) installation, recently presented at the Kunsthalle Fridericianum, Kassel, as part of the “In the Gorges of the Balkans” exhibition, refers back to a group of works begun by Dimitrijević during the mid-70s and titled Triptycus post-historicus, whereby a masterpiece of art history was installed next to an everyday object and a fruit or vegetable. His deconsecration of the works of past and modern masters - moving them from the wall to the floor, pairing them with potatoes, peppers or apples, placing them in a supermarket trolley or bath-tub - is intended to question the conventions and “fetishism” of art and contest the hierarchy of values in general. In Balkan-Walzer nine large-format photographs of famous 19th and 20th-century composers are “demythicised” by nine pigeons and nine peppers. Curated by: Stefano Marson and Ana Janevski
