BEHIND THE CORNER

Gjorgje Jovanovik

Installation with street signs (Thessaloniki port area, outdoors)

 

The public interventions with street signs as medium for articulation represent a continuation of Gjorgje Jovanovik artistic practice in urban space. The street signs are camouflaged with familiar design motifs, in order to trick and attract the passer by into reading them. Gjorgje has developed this project in an attempt to add a further level of reading of street signs in order to reflect the current urgent topics of contemporary turbulent and fragmented world such as the influence of fake news, social injustice and inequality, discrimination etc. We could look at such signs as new ones in the present era, a reflection upon our common visual, social and urban space.
