Under Kulturnatta kommer gästkonstnären Stefan Lukić att springa 24 varv runt Konstepidemin och skapa en GPS-teckning, som dokumenteras inne i Artists’ Corner.
Stefan Lukić (1985) is a Serbian visual and performance artist whose vision is to record the universal state of being in transit, migration, and on the road. He is intrigued by the role of travelers and eyewitnesses and so he tries to represent them through his art. Roads, distances, and we as travelers become the connection between places, memories, ideas, people, life, love, human struggle and death. Paintings by Stefan Lukić almost always speak about the process of searching, and transition points – expressing the feelings of constant flux, a moving that never ends. He reminds us that it is all about the journey, and not about the destination. He emphasizes the act of wandering on the road, more so than the act of arriving at the final destination. In his paintings, you’ll find out more about HOW we are seeking, and less about WHAT we are seeking. Performances by Stefan Lukic, or how he calls them: drawing-events, are similar to his paintings. They are more raw, as raw as life itself, without any mediator, with all the situations we can’t expect or predict.
Stefan Lukić graduated from the Faculty of Applied Arts in Belgrade in 2018. He spent his third year of Bachelor studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Paris (ENSBA).
