WELCOME TO DALMATIA - THE MEDITERRANEAN AS IT ONCE WAS
53'00'' loop, single channel video Installation, 2011
04. 11. - 02. 12. 2011, 37. Split Salon, “Izlagati (se)”, basement of the Diocletian's palace, Split, Croatia
The panoramic video view of the devastated landscape nearby the city of Split is projected onto the "raw" wall surface of the subterranean basement under the antique Palace of Diocletian in the center of Split. The superposition of the projected image on the actual site is meant to raise a critical question about the Croatian tourism campaign slogan "Mediterranean as it once was". This video installation directly juxtaposes two radically different cultural faces of the Dalmatian coastal area commenting a problem-posing fact about the architectural and the cultural heritage.
