Vienna-based Serbian artist Dejan Kaludjerović will present his solo project Shelters on Thursday in Jerusalem, a sculptural installation and sound project based on interviews conducted with local children.
Kaludjerović created Shelters during his time taking part in the Art Cube Artists’ Studios new residency programme — LowRes Jerusalem. The project forms part of his ongoing series Conversations: Hula Hoops, Elastics, Marbles and Sand (2016) — which sees Kaludjerović conduct individual interviews with children from a wide range of socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds, then construct an imagined conversation between the children themselves, during which they discuss issues such as language, war, poverty and social inclusion. Previous projects in the series were created in Russia, Serbia, Iran, Azerbaijan, and Austria.
LowRes Jerusalem is part of the international residency programme at Art Cube Artists’ Studios. The programme invites artists who explore social, political and economic conflicts to reflect upon their environment in a critical manner during a temporary residency in Jerusalem.
Shelters opens at 8pm on Thursday 1 December at Art Cube Artists’ Studios in Jerusalem.
