Serbian fashion photographer Jovana Mladenovic is exhibiting her new series Monumental Fear at the LIBRARY in London, as part of the first-ever Balkan art exhibition to be held in the city. Her haunting series explores and documents Second World War monuments in former Yugoslavia. The artist’s aim is to bring to life a period of history forgotten by many of the younger generation.
Interruption, presented by Contemporary Balkan Art, showcases 40 works by Balkan artists including paintings, sculptures, photographs, prints and graphics. It is showing at LIBRARY on St Martin’s Lane until mid-May.
Mladenovic is in conversation at the club on April 25th. The subject of the talk is the artist’s new series and how brutalism and architecture formed a national identity in former Yugoslavia.
