“Running over”

Street art exhibition
May 5th – 11th > Grand closing on May 11th, at 20h

This exhibition will bring together the best street artists from our scene, and during its creation, the gallery will be transformed into an urban environment where street artists usually work.

The term “Running over” is a slang expression used by Serbian street artists for painting something over an existing piece which is a natural process in the streets. Sometimes stuff is being run over because of lack of space, at times because of rivalry and sometimes because of a sheer need for destruction. But the term “running over” symbolizes much more.

“Running over” is both literal and figurative. It happens every day in different situations. In art, but the artist as well, it happens in life, to everyone, and inside everyone. The creative force is being run over by vandalism. Thought, ideas, symbols, words, images, effort, talent, memories, love, dreams everything is being run over. Every day our rights are being run over, a right to freedom, expression, point of view, choice, a right to have our city, our streets, a right to our art.

The idea of this exhibition is to invite fellow citizens to take part in “Running over”, to be involved in the activist process by an artist that will be creating art in the O3ONE Gallery, May 5th – 10th, and to give their view of the term “running over”. Everyone interested is welcome to add to someone’s work, to draw next to, or over it. To share what they have written about the exhibition, to say freely without censorship how do they feel, what or who is running over them, and to give suggestions on how to free the city, and stop it from being run over.

ARTEZ, BONG, DAS DROGEN, JANA, JUNK, LINNCH, LOTREK, MASTER, MONSTA, MUPOCK, NIKOLA, SLESH, TKV, WONY, and WUPER are artists that will take part in “Running over” and results of their work, and the work of the audience that will join them will be presented on Thursday, May 11th, at 20:00h.
