Project Terratorija forms part of a series of art exhibitions and art installations put on display during BELEF festival in Belgrade, Serbia. Participants of this year’s project were young artists and students from international universities and faculties of fine and applied arts, including the faculties of Fine and Applied Arts in Belgrade, Academy of Arts in Trebinje and Cetinje, Beaux-Arts in Paris, Academy of Applied Arts in Vienna and Laselle Faculty of Arts in Singapore.
The series of black and white photographs shown here are a collection of details captured during Atif’s visit to Belgrade in July 2013. The sculptural details are separated from their whole and ripped apart from their intended character and their original personality. Not knowing how to string the pieces back into their original shape, the viewers are subconsciously pushed toward inventing a story of their own and a different, unintended kind of emotion, and feelings informed by shapes derived from patterns of shadow and light are extracted.
