Žarko Kaić MEMORIAL OSIJEK *

* 1 ST PRIZE

THE ORIGIN AND SYMBOLICS

FOR A CINEMATOGRAPHER, THE FILM FRAME IS AN OBJECT THROUGH WHICH HE PERCEIVES, DOCUMENTS AND REPRODUCES THE WORLD. THE RATIO OF TELEVISION IMAGE IN THIS WORK IS EPITOMISED AS AN HOMAGE TO ŽARKO KAIĆ. THE OVERLY-SIZED FRAME IS STILL IN ITS MOVEMENT AND DESCENT, ROTATED AND PARTIALLY BURIED IN MOUND. IT IS LOCATED IN THE VISUAL INTERCEPT OF ROADS WHICH MEET IN A ROUNDABOUT. IT IS SET IN A SLIGHT DIAGONAL POSITION IN RELATION TO TWO DOMINANT ROADSWHICH CONSTRUCT THE PERSPECTIVE OF A QUADRATIC PASSAGE. THIS WAY, THE SYMBOLISM OF CINEMATOGRAPHER’S FILM FRAME IS INTERCONNECTED WITH THE SYMBOLISM OF THE SQUARE AS ONE OF THE ELEMENTS OF CROATIAN VISUAL IDENTITY.

THE TWO-LAYER SLOPE HAS BEEN CONSTRUCTED IN COMBINATION WITH THE SLIGHT ELEVATION. EVEN THOUGH THE HIDDEN PART OF THE FRAME MIGHT NOT BE VISIBLE TO THE NAKED EYE, WE STILL FEEL AND SENSE IT IN ITS ENTIRETY. THEREBY, WE ARE INVITED TO EQUALLY ASSUME THE MEMORY OF THE FALLEN VICTIMS AS PART OF OUR CULTURAL AND NATIONAL IDENTITY. THEREFORE, ITS VIVID APPEARANCE BRINGS FORTH AN ADDITIONAL AUTHENTICITY AND DYNAMICS.
