View of the exhibition
Swiss artist Sladjan Nedeljkovic concludes the exhibition series 2011
with an installation that deals with concepts of vision, observation,
and surveillance. The exhibition, conceived especially for the
pavilion, seeks to come to terms with the existing architecture and
its immediate surroundings. Inspired by control towers and observation
platforms, the artist has created a polyvalent architectonic structure,
which he has entitled Observatory.
But exactly what kind of structure is this? Is it exhibition display?
Design? A workstation? A surveillance system?
The ultimate significance of this artistic configuration can only be
arrived at through the perceptions of spectators and passersby - their
contingent views through the display window and their diverse per-
spectives when circumambulating interior and exterior. In the spirit
of Serendipity, viewers are enjoined to interactwith the display object
in a participatory manner.
