A Theater of Small Gestures

American Center, Belgrade, Yugoslavia
Using photographs, video, text and shoe laths in a window display on Belgrade’s busiest pedestrian street, this installation presented interior and exterior spaces of Yugoslavia amidst an impending civil war. 

A quote from Ivo Andrich’s novel, The Bosnian Chronicle was written in Cyrillic on the window pane: “Even so, none of this could entirely remove or protect them, from the events, which like fire or the plague, over took alike, the man who ran from them and the man who sat still at home.”

Below the quote hundreds and hundreds of shoe laths covered the floors of the four window display cases.  Additionally large scale black and white photographs and video monitors intimate interior spaces next to open exterior spaces.
