Exhibition from May 10th to June 18th 2016
[ Vernissage le mardi 10 mai 2016 ]
Seeing in Radenko Milak’s practice a mere virtuoso use of painting, watercolor, ink wash or drawing would be by all means simplistic. Radenko Milak is a complete artist who questions the imaginary potential of images, and conceives his paintings as installations that confront the real and fictitious power of images, their interpretations and readings, their status within our visually saturated society, as well as the standards of representation of reality. Radenko Milak opens our eyes through revealing the aesthetic potentiality held in each image, as well as their haunting ghosts. His work is a visual echo to the continuous stream of images seen as deceiving reflections of the world’s visual archive.
