SHE. AHEAD OF HER TIME is an original multimedia installation, which integrates exhibition, live performance, installation, video works, and photography. This work deals with women who were the pioneers in their fields in Serbian society. Even though their achievements were significant for our culture, their work is still not sufficiently known and visible in Serbian cultural and historical heritage.
The project is intended for gallery spaces. The artists in the project use a contemporary artistic language that has the potential to draw the attention of a younger audience to the achievements of women who are part of our cultural heritage, but have not been given the importance and visibility they deserve. The inspiration and reason for the project are the life and work of women who worked in the periods of construction and modernization of civil society, who pushed the boundaries in their fields and were very often the first women who worked in certain fields – ahead of their time. We dedicate this project to them as well as to our contemporaries.
The installation consist of several rooms and each room will be dedicated to one or more of the women who are the inspiration for the work. Neither performative nor audio/visual works have a biographical approach, but a conceptual and transformative approach, which brings artistic originality to every element-part of this multimedia project.
