fragments II: belgrade @ bemac

Queensland Multicultural Month, a Queensland Government initiative, will be celebrated for the first time in August 2016 and includes Multicultural Arts & Culture Week (8-14 August) and Queensland Multicultural Week (22-30 August).

Celebrating Brisbane’s diversity, BEMAC presents artworks by Serbian-Australian contemporary visual artist Vesna Klačar-Nedimović.

Queensland is home to people from over 220 countries and is richer for the contribution of multicultural artists such as Klačar-Nedimović.

The exhibition at BEMAC’s Queensland Multicultural Centre (2 August – 3 October) will feature Klačar-Nedimović’s limited edition digital prints and etchings.

The series of artworks “Fragments II: Belgrade” show an architectural façade overlaid with a map that describes the way the city is threaded into the artist’s memory, exploring her personal, familial and cultural ties to the city of her youth.

Klačar-Nedimović overwrites her images and text rather like the process of layering contemporary cultural over all that has gone before. In this context the use of text adds information and an entry point that is both evocative and documentary, the organic and sinuous topographic lines of natural features and rivers alike overlay architectural images that are man-made in their perfect curves and straightness.

In Klačar-Nedimović’s images we may all access the familiar sense of retracing the past in our present (Louise Martin-Chew, IMPRINT Magazine, vol 48, no. 3, 2013).

Exhibition: 2 August-3 October, Brisbane Multicultural Arts Centre (BEMAC), Queensland Multicultural Centre, 102 Main Street, Kangaroo Point

Opening hours: Monday-Friday | 9am-4.30pm
