Originally intended to show in April 2020, COVID-19 caused the cancellation, and TimeWindows: Perspective Nouveau was shown in lieu.  Visit back for info on April 2021 exhibit!  TBD

 

The Sacret Hearts Show multimedia art installation at M. Galleries has been canceled due to Covid.  It was originally scheduled for April 2020 and intended to be an immersive and demonstrative experience depicting the depth of our connections through space and time, on a theoretical level.  The illuminated incorporation of fiber optics, animation, and holograms brought science and technology to a forefront and was designed to help people connect through the reactive nature of the work.  Unified by the iconic heart, the exhibition’s immersion was to be experienced via all the senses and included edible art, touchable and participatory works, word art, and sound elements so it can appeal to any type of learner.  Its whimsical ingredients brought humor to the collective feel of the installation and included some impressionable works.  Bojana even created a unique essential oil fragrance specifically for this exhibition.

 

While it originally included over 40 unique artworks, ⅓ of the exhibition was eliminated due to our changed way of life during Covid-19.  With the loss of significant connective threads, the entire installation fell apart.  Although each artwork can stand strong on its own, the groups of the works told a deeper story, and the collective installation a deeper one still.  Despite the complexity of the ideas, the multisensory explanation created an empirical experience and a unified story that conveyed the complexity without confusion. 

 

Drawing inspiration from technology, science, world cultures, mythology, and personal experience, the artist’s intention was to convey the value of art by demonstrating its application in our daily lives.  Furthermore, it was to exemplify our human commonalities supporting equality from the inside out.  Using a diverse multimedia approach drove this point home, in essence saying, “While all these things are different, they all work together to create something bigger than themselves.  The magic is in the differences!”  

 

The highlight of opening night would have been Bojana's responsive and globally interactive wearable art dress entitled, Icarus, based on the Greek myth.  With its heart aglow, Earth’s citizens could compete to change the color of Bojana’s heart through a web application demonstrating the distant, but immediate effects we can have on each other. 

 

Although the installation has been circumstantially canceled and the artist isn’t willing to compromise the integrity of the exhibition, it may show sometime in the future after things return to normal.

"I can't begin to express how heartbroken I am that things didn't work out as planned.  I thought I had found a beautiful way of demonstrating so many values and was looking forward to making a positive impact in the community which could have spread. 

Back to the drawing board!  It's never over, just different.

"Like a skillfully woven spider's web, so do our hearts connect."

Artist's Statement

The Infinities of Sacret Hearts

 

"Sacret" is a portmanteau of sacred and secret.  The Sacret Hearts installation harbors many strands of a complicated web of themes, materials, and disciplines.  The umbrella message is unity.  Unity breeds strength on all the fractal layers.

Layer ONE | Singular artwork (Individual) | SELF            

Layer TWO | Wall composition (Small Group) | OTHERS            

Layer THREE | Gallery composition (Mass Grouping) | WHOLE            

On additional layers, there is a very personal story behind each artwork, a message I want to convey through each unique piece to individuals, and a collective message I want to convey to humanity.  Through the relationships

I created amongst the artworks within their semi-finite space, I can visually demonstrate all of these layers. 

Connection and web-weaving are at the core of what I do.

This layered perspective is a reflection of society and our individual places within it,

as well as our relationship to the groups of which we are part,

including our global community.

The wearable art dress, Icarus, is based on the Greek myth and reiterates the themes of the exhibition through its use of materials and functionality.  Additionally, it adds another dimension to the triangulated curation, a vertex if you will, 

as it is a piece that is constantly in motion. 

 

See list of commonalities, themes, materials, and disciplines below... 

"We are but a gateway, the space between universes."

REFLECTING. EXPANDING. TRUTHING.

CONNECTING.
