Flux Identity – The Contemporary Art Scene of Canada in Dialogue with Montenegrin Artists
“In recent years, the notion of identity has been in the center of attention of many scientific discussions and texts, mostly in the field of philosophical and psychological-psychiatric thought. He is also in the focus of research on many art projects, and numerous and different topics related to him are becoming the subject of artistic perception.
The Flux Identity project deals with the problems of identity, issues of its instability, the possibility of summarizing various social influences and readiness for change.
The question of identity is a question of man’s very essence. It is his connection with the past, the present and with predicting the future. Because of its importance, the theme of identity has found itself at the center of the artistic research of artists gathered at the Flux Identity exhibition. They develop their artistic concepts by moving through an expanded field of art, incorporating their personal discourse, experiential vision, various artistic procedures and processes. Their artistic practice is realized through spatial, multimedia and interactive installations, drawing, performance, video, photography and digital art “, wrote the curator of the exhibition Svetlana Mladenov.
