Nevena Popović: Contraction
This artwork is part of our campaign "Perspective matters". With start'19 in mind, we asked artists what they saw in the apostrophe from our event logo – or if it even is an apostrophe in their eyes. The responses to this call for entries revealed a multitude of perspectives that we want to share with our readers. More information about the campaign can be found HERE.
A perspective of contrasts – that probably is what comes to mind first when looking at Nevena Popović’s “apostrophe” Contraction. Soft and hard come together in what seems like harmony. In this sculpture, we can feel that contrast doesn’t need to mean conflict. Sometimes it’s enough to change the own point of view to realise how valuable the cooperation between two seemingly different things can be. Food for thought – or what do you see?
Are you inspired by this perspective? Don’t hesitate to show your own, then! To get you started we have prepared a craft template – download it HERE. As part of our campaign, we want to encourage everyone to look at their own perspective and maybe re-think it. While making such a small sculpture, you have the best opportunity to turn both things around: the paper sculpture and your own perspective ... we're curious to see what comes out of it!
