Exhibition Grey Field by Saša Živković will be opened on Thursday, August 1 at 8 pm at the Bačva Gallery (Home of HDLU).

“Saša Živković (1970) creates an enchanted circle through the dialectics of creation, permanent space-time change of the continuum of optical illusion based on grey and white polarities. The circle is an expanded dot and the sphere, which is how Plato saw the human soul, is an expanded circle. This is analogous to the circularity of the cosmos in which nothing stands still, everything moves. Just like the relationship between negative and positive image, where one is reflected in the other, with the final materialization between the matrix built from sand and a contrasting background Saša spreads achromatic grey in dual tones which acts both as the link and the dividing line – the third part of the essence of the black and white illusion (…)

(…)

Saša points to the indescribable and never fully captured meaning of the symbol; to the process of individuation of an individual who, by striving towards balance between emotion, sensory, intuition and thoughtfulness in this meaningless world, tries to become aware of his/her own unconscious and achieve psychological integrity. This is a complex and multi-faceted symbolism of the mandala that surpasses the scope of this interpretation, bringing us to the topic of meaning, psyche and visual arts.[1] Saša’s spatial image is multiperspective. Therein lies its never fully exhausted power. It is a reflection of an inner reality. This is the point of the trefoil illusion. We have to believe in it or the optical magic seen from God’s perspective disappears.
