Aleksandar Todorović is a restless traveller, non-media specific artist and graphic designer. He spends some time of the year based out of Bosnia & Hercegovina, but most of his work is influenced by him being on the road. One of his first loves is definitely typography, always employing a bold statement. Over the last few years, he has functioned as the backbone of the YHY FIHM art collective, art directing and producing work for several art books.
While exploring the space of change we find what is constantly inconstant; In Tommy Coleman’s elaborately visually world this inconstant variable stalks, haunts, and taunts you in close quarters without ever showing you its whole being. Coleman’s sculptural and mixed media works weave together fact and fiction- the documentary and the diaristic- to navigate a world of humor and anxiety. How far does the uncanny spiral outward, orbiting, until it finds a brave new dimension ready to welcome it?
Tommy Coleman, a recent MFA graduate of Yale University, is a visual artist originally from Jupiter, Florida and current resident at Homesession in Barcelona, Spain. Coleman also holds a year long residency at the Artha Project in New York City until 2018.
Tommy Coleman is a Florida raised sculptor, painter, and performance artist. Through masterfully crafted objects, and staunchly sincere albeit witty images, Coleman’s work implores investigations of honesty, intimacy, and perceptional break downs which accompany anxiety- all done by way of navigating the boundaries of what is considered permissible. Receiving his BFA from The Cooper Union, and his MFA in sculpture from Yale University, Coleman is a current resident artist for the Artha Project in New York City.
Conquistadores de lo inutil: comme une petite musique de déplacements.
This project, carried out within residence exchange framework between Homesession and art3 (Valence, France) leaded to several events:
At first, I wrote a lot about Barcelona, its architecture, its urban devices, as well as all the people I’ve met since I came here. These notes are the equivalent of a story or a postcard, becoming almost in a love letter to Barcelona. These texts and these notes have been interpreted and sung by a soundtrack that is configured as the Original Soundtrack of the exhibition created in collaboration with Natalia Paez Carrizo and music producer @hugodouster, here in Barcelona.
Conducting a workshop at the Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of Barcelona, I could also create a video to illustrate some of this soundtrack, like a real trailer for the exhibition. To make this video, I made a small collection of clothing that students who participated in the workshop, gave them life and movement.
These pieces are both costume and scene representation of some of the purposes of the soundtrack. The whole exhibition can be seen as a visual and sound exploration of Barcelona, a kind of itinerant opera karaoke.

Silky unt slimy things (springbreak 2030), Bejamin Collet in collaboration with Anne Renaud, 2014
“Starting from reality I deploy, I assemble and I compare many events and images; how things and images are built up; what they hide and what they mean. Nowadays we are surrounded by an intense images production from whom I don’t know issues and I don’t have any keys to read it.
Lewis Caroll wrote «So, said Alice, if the world has no sense who will stop us to invent one.» Installation and composition interest me a lot in this sense. In addition, poetic and prospective that exist in all things around us allow me to make my own world. I wouldn’t say an isolated world but more a filter or a language through which I can understand, observe and stand my day to day surrounding, a way to « think-with ». I set a display made of tools, materials and features in aim to create speeches, tales and fictions. Combining writing, documentation, archiving as well as sketch, sound and video, my installations are kind of «ideas cases». All those fragments and tracks form/create a kaleidoscopic investigation of our world.”
The project will take place in and around Barcelona with a great cultural and social diversity. It is to be in collaboration with local people involved with the cultural and social life of Barcelona.
The project presents a selection of artists which reflects on the artistic practice, that deals with the construction of the self in reference to economic, social, political, and historical conditions.
The participative process and the invitation to 12 artists reveals a diversity of work processes and forms of visibility (Video, Performances, Exhibitions), including works of participating teams from the Faculty of Fine Arts of the Barcelona University, Roue Libre project and Bösediva.
