Nataša Kokić


Drawing, 5 x 2 m , pencil on paper.

Growing up, I used to imagine that there was a landscape behind the last row of houses that I could see from my balcony. I used to stand there at dusk, looking at the space between two houses, and since I couldn't see anything except sky and the top of one tree, I would imagine that there was a meadow leading into the hills, instead of a huge factory that was really there. I noticed that the balconywas turned westwards and that became symbolic to me. In the nineties, everyone in the surroundings
thought that “the west” meant spiritual freedom and a normal, relaxed life. That new life was so close, right behind that last row of houses.
My work is dealing with the relationship between the individual
and society and how that relationship works; in what way society changes our views,our wishes and priorities. The works are depicting what sort of life we should lead, or what is offered in comparison to what we want.
They illustrate everyday situations and backdrops, representing the examples of how a normal life should look and feel. Those scenes were cloaked with melancholy, owing to the fact that our preferences have changed and that our wishes and longings will perhaps never come true. Therefore, the paintings and drawings were creating a hermetic world, parallel to the one that exists.

My latest works have a more optimistic feel.
They are depicting what you might call “safe places” - images andthoughts that can give usstrength and will to persist. The drawings are representations of (non)places,spaces that don't have a defined theme, like a patch of grass between two buildings.
Those spaces are intimate, a personification of some indeterminatedesire, that is yet to be discovered; it leads us onwards and gives us potency to create new narrative.
