Croatian multimedia artist Igor Grubić will be exhibiting his 2015 film Monument at Kudos Gallery opening on Tuesday the 8th of November. Monument is a poetic-experimental documentary, structured as a series of nine meditative ‘portraits’ of the massive concrete memorials commissioned by the former Yugoslav state. These sentinel forms were originally built to honour the Second World War victims of fascism.
His work includes site-specific interventions in public spaces, performances, photography and video works. He is known for his activism and his consideration of the public space as a means of expression. In 2000, he started working as a producer and writer of documentaries, tv reportages and socially committed commercials. His work has been exhibited extensively across Europe and at Monash University Museum of Art – ‘Concrete’ curated by Geraldine Kirrihi Barlow in 2014 and in ‘Zero tolerance’, MOMA PS1, NY in 2015.
