Exposition: 1st round in Barcelona – A streetcar named Desire
Both projects were created in Barcelona, during Stefan Lukić’s residency at Homesession in the framework of our Exchange program. The projects are related to the artist’s current artistic practice and research on the relation between art, public space and physicality: during the two last years, the artist has developed a body of performance works using running as an artistic research methodology, to challenge his own practice, centered on painting and drawing, through live interventions in public spaces.
1st round in Barcelona 13.6.2021.
Organized on an athletic track, 1st round in Barcelona is the first drawing-event of a series of 4 performances. Those performance will take place in the next twenty days, and will end on July 5th in Belgrade, exploring the repetition of equally designed events in different times and places.
A streetcar named Desire 10.6.2021.
A streetcar named Desire is a drawing-event and a performative intervention in a public space, focusing on the notions of wishes and accomplishment, using Barcelona’s most famous streetcar accident, which involved Antoni Gaudi, as a pretext to explore its relation to the notion of risk.
The two projects, based on the appropriation of recognizable artistic works as well as sport’s rules and visual culture, will be presented at Homesession through a series of documentation conceived as an ongoing archive.
