Djordje Aralica

 
Artist
Belgrade
Serbia
Usually, the place where I live at any given moment, with its daily routines, decides on the choice of my subject matter. As a rule, I am interested in the objects of everyday life, which appear to be surprisingly uniform wherever you go. In my work, they unite collective and personal experience. I never recycle real objects in a manner of an assemblage, but rather present my own associative, monumentalized interpretation of their form. I choose medium, mode of craftsmanship, both of which suggest underlying narrative context, but also provide monumental quality of architecture. My objects are reduced to a gallery format, but I see them as large-scale urban sculptures evocative of common human activities.

Djordje Aralica, Ad libris

The age of electronic media has brought the book in its traditional form to the verge of extinction. Printed book, codex, rapidly vanishes from the public sphere, losing the battle with its digital versions. By underscoring the materiality of the bound and printed page, Djordje Aralica's sculptural cycle entitled Ad libris offers a pause and provides an opportunity to gain an insight into the realities of today. Against the immateriality and elusiveness of the digital realm, Aralica's solid sculptural forms executed in metal with visible welds convey physical presence and longevity of his sculptures-books. Aralica carefully controls every mark and physical detail. By unconventionally combining materials like rope and steel, the artist emphasizes the sensual nature of the traditional art of bookbinding. Books in Aralica's world create their own space - its constituents are themselves bound together, chained, mobile, twisted, and tactile. His sculptures offer an invitation to interact - to move them, roll them, leave fingerprints on them. They, at the same time, deny our interference - their pages do not turn. Being without text that would transfer the reader to another time and space, Aralica's books become silent witnesses of a passing era.
