De/gradation

Miloš Sekulić
October 28th - November 3rd, 2015 > Opening on October 28th, at 19:30h

Miloš Sekulić was born in Belgarde, he is an educated architect and designer, lives and works in New York. He founded the first Belgarde and Yugoslav rock band “Iskre”, in 1959.

As an artist, Sekulić is interested in an unstable relation between pictures and photography and believes that “both media pretend to represent the truth, but neither one gives a full view of the subject”. The exhibition De/gradation represents the author’s research, as he says “uncertain and delicate relation” in which he shows a different connection between urban structures, urban landscape, it’s construction and decay. A special accent was put on the consequences of the destruction of Belgarde and New York, with inevitable admiration of his love for rock and roll, and respect for family roots.

According to Irena Subotić “Miloš Sekulić makes interventions through which we fell his excitement before a show, his great sense of art, his inventiveness, the freedom of interpretation, the power of expression, the colorful baldness, and variety of actions. That’s how three Miloš’s streams assemble in one: his boundedness for Belgarde, his architectural skills, experience, and value recognition of even the modest urban structures, and finally his long-hidden sense of art with which he sends a powerful message about the actual dangers for the survival of his (our Belgarde) linking him simultaneously with another city of his life – New York”.
