This exhibition season at the Kula art gallery will conclude with an exhibition of drawings in various formats by Miloš Ćosović Desko. The exhibition opens on Thursday, June 23rd at 19h and runs until July 17th.
To sink into rest means to relax your senses, loosen the ties of life management on a number of fronts, and establish a breathing rhythm that fills (will fill) the brain with more than necessary oxygen. Only when we completely forget the concept of time (as we know it) and begin telling time by our meals, when we replace survival rituals with enjoyment rituals, and when there is nothing else to bother us, the vacation (rest) has begun. Vacation as the naked truth of ourselves and how we observe and feel. In a few days, we will also mark the start of summer on our calendars, and the vacation can (could) begin.
The exhibition features a collection of handmade drawings of various formats created in the period from 2017 to 2022 in which Miloš Ćosović explores and re-examines the phenomenon of rest (vacation). A series of portraits of people, animals, nature, and the urban environment are documents of his presence and concentration. At the moment when he becomes the camera, he draws through the experience of the beholder, and notes the uniqueness of situations on paper with pencils and felt-tip pens. At the exhibition, the audience will be able to witness the artist’s process of relaxation and gaze disappearance, as well as his concentration (focus) on the beauty of the moment.
