The New York-based Serbian artist will present new work that explores “both the experiential and atmospheric aspects of the body as it dwindles and subsists in its fringe states.” Looking at dust, particles, form, as well as physical states of pressure, density and porosity, Bašić will immerse us in the relationship between body and universe.
The press includes a poem, with an excerpt reading:
In this space Feeble air falls rather than fills its gaps
As it sinks into softness — all movement stunts
turns to torpor.
Pressure surrounds and leaves me hardened, petrified A sigh fills a slippage that wrings my bent neck This vessel may shatter this moment, or the next.
