Goran Djurovic (Berlin)

Land unter / Land Under

The images in this room by Goran Djurovic deal mainly with Berlin. Only the very tops of the Gedächtniskirche (Memorial Church) and the Brandenburg Gate can be seen rising above a sea, watched closely by helpless, lonely figures on a hill. The metaphorical similarities with the city’s actual situation are obvious. Other paintings in the room invoke more upbeat connotations, whereby the artist’s fantastic, surreal imagery almost always elicits a smile.
