Bling Brutalism Series

 

Short description of the work

When Thomas Hirschhorn writes that the crystals stand for ‘the universal, the ultimate and the absolute’ he is arguing that the crystals stand for beauty itself. Here, in the work of author we are confronted by an idea of crystals that can best be described as a bling brutalism. Lumps of concrete are covered with shiny reflective film. The raw surface of the concrete – that reveals itself on the edges and sides of the stones – is animated by the shiny colored film that clings to the surface. The stones shimmer in response to the passing movement of the audience, they dance to any changes in light and with this dance encourage the objects around them to become animated.

Concrete – Photography – Brutalims – Light

The Future is Brutal

 

Short description of the work

In the future, many things will be changed. The sky above Skopje will have two suns and spaceships will fly over our squares. People will look different, wearing new outfits that will allow for easier movement and survival in the new world. However, there will be much fewer of them left, as a consequence of the poor air quality and the continuous deterioration of the conditions for sustaining life. In the harsh circumstances of the future, what will survive is the city’s brutal architecture. Brutality will be a reminder of the damage done by men as a consequence of the lack of a greater vision and solidarity.

Brutalism – Future – Pollution

Title of the work

Skopje. A Transitional Model
Text by Jana Konstantinova and Anna Positano – Photographs by Anna Positano

 

Short description of the work

Skopje is a case study to analyse contemporary architecture and identity in the Balkans, in the light of the current Macedonian political affairs and urban transformations. Several cultures and long-lasting migrations shaped Skopje’s urban fabric. Yet the city is mostly the result of political choices of the last fifty years. In 1963 the global political response to Skopje’s earthquake profoundly affected the city. As the Cold War reached its climax, international efforts to rebuild the city had the objective to pursue a global political stability. With the support of the United Nations, the Yugoslavian government adopted Kenzo Tange’s reconstruction plan of brutalist buildings, which made Skopje a modern, utopian metropolis. When Macedonia gained independence in 1991, nationalist politics changed the identity of Skopje’s architecture. The Socialist, international post-quake architecture could not represent Macedonian identity any more. Along with slow political transition, in 2010 the government announced a plan of urban renovation, Skopje 2014. The plan is turning Skopje’s brutalist heritage into neo-neoclassical buildings. The new confused and scattered built environment takes apart the civil society from architecture. This in combination with a young, uncertain political situation affects people’s personal and socio-cultural values. The plan attracted strong criticism since its announcement. Protesters have taken to the streets of Skopje and recently have turned into a Colourful Revolution against the general cultural austerity. Similar to other former Socialist countries, Skopje appears unable to re-examine and evaluate its architectural past. A city that once was the model of global architectural solidarity, now offers a case study of transitional post-Socialist dystopia.

Title of the work

Out of context corners
Sculptural sunset
Pastel windows
Where memories dance
Textures

 

Short description of the work

The hardest thing to do is take out architecture out of it’s context especially when it is based around it. Here, through a simple shot of the corner, we see the architectural detail of the Museum of Macedonia.
The modernist white setting of the Museum of Contemporary Art is changed thanks to the entering light of the sunset. Suddenly it gives the building a new colorful character, one that mimics an art piece.
The soft pastel colors in contrast to the harsh concrete, an intertwining in the facade of the student dormitory in Skopje.
Trapped childhood memories in a metal box, a home to laughter and joy, once very close, now forgotten and deteriorating.
The clear blue sky mixes in between the cold grey tones of the facade of the building of the Macedonian Radio, creating a connection between nature and architecture. Isolated from the context of the whole form, this corner gives us a peak into the details of Macedonian modernism.

corner – contrast – colors – concrete – windows

Investigating Skopje 2014

 

Short description of the work

Skopje 2014 is a construction project financed by the Macedonian Government with the superficial aim of strengthening the national identity and the recollection of the antique past. Indeed the construction project serves as a tool for money-laundering and therefore also is the base for the in Macedonia widely spread clientelism. During a monthly stay in Skopje, the authors obtained a picture of the situation. They captured their impressions by the use of imagery and text.

The Bedrock
The Bedrock II

 

Short description of the work

The development of an intervention realized on the same spot: before, during and after the excavation of the soil for the future house.

 

The excavated soil, that was supposed to be filled with the concrete in order to become a proper house foundation but continued to wait that moment, represented my attempt to built a house in the same age in which my father was when he started to build his. Under the influence of weather conditions, the significant amount of already excavated soil has returned back in its original state, leaving the visible traces of previous intervention that took place at the same spot several months earlier. Re-engagement of close friends and family members, in order to re-excavate the soil witnesses of investing, sometimes, Sisyphus effort and patience to overcome current possibilities and chances.
