»Historians, sociologists, psychologists, and anthropologists will, from some distance and beyond, be able to see the true character of the digital revolution and its effects on the society and life of the individual, and identify all the interactive consequences that change the paradigm of civilization. Nowadays, from a distance that actually means first direct contact and participation in the formation of a civilization flow, the ordinary man can only to indulge in the challenging effects of ease communication and the accessibility of the outside world through virtual means. However, unlike the ordinary man, Ivan Milenkovic has taken on the obligations inherent to contemporary artist as the outspoken representative of a society that sees the circumstances of the outside world more clearly, more complexly and through the prism of a wealth of knowledge, to see the problem. For the artist that has these abilities to condense the content and meanings of reality and to objectify the phenomenon, to process it, present it and return it to the public in a condensed form of visually articulated messages. That is why Milenkovic’s paintings represent a view of understanding from the very core of the digital revolution ” Slavko Timotijevic explained Ivan Milenkovic’s works in front House of Arts Pigmalion.
You can see Ivan Milenkovic’s works until December 2 in NLB Gallery, Mihaila Pupin Boulevard 165v, Novi Beograd.
