Time is space / Artist’s book (2018)
 

Author of the text: Milica Perić
Art practices which reinterpret, collage and produce memories often start from personal archives, testimonies, read differently and rearticulated, depending on the current need. Within these private archives, family photographs have considerable potential, not only to transcend their particular context and location (Wells, 2006: 54), but also to offer a reflection on the society through intimate stories. The particularity of a private history, as well as the sensibility of the artist, can become a starter and stock of collective memory, an impetus for a common reflection on history, reality, meaning.

Honest information about one individual can be significant information about reality in general. (Ristić, 1952: 7)
