DISPOSITIO - INTERSTITIO

The video REVERZIBIL-smsub (Reversible-smsub) and the series Dispozicije (Dispositions) came out of an extensive creative process before, during and after the exhibition Interstice. All three areas of engagement represent an expression of investigative endeavours which can be found, at least partially, in other prints at this exhibition. In that way, the reference framework of Interstice remains open for an observer to interpret the position of each of the exhibited prints. In addition, although there is necessarily no chronological order or no temporal unity, each print can be observed retrospectively.

Interstice was composed structurally as an ambience interactive installation. Due to a line of its facets, kaleidoscopically shifted flows, it deformed any discernible form. In the generated network, Interstice was all within the limits and its diagonals dominated moving forwards and backwards, or back – forth motions as Bruno Latour would say. They invaded space. They could connect with one another in the human mind in order to overcome the human body, thus leaving their mark in our mind. Getting attached to its shifting memory strongholds and to other actors in Interstice, they were looking for the midpoint of the human perception.

Looking from today,s perspective, spaces as places for re-conceptualising do not understand mere presence of elements or objects. They understand generating interaction between themselves, beings, ideas, association...Thus, Interstice, functioning as a polyvalent group of characters in motion, established itself through its engagement in time and, by setting its open structure, it enabled future metaphorical dislocations. One of those represents the very exhibition DIS/POSITIONS.
