Kosta Bunuševac / „Box Book“
In front of the House of Đuro Jakšić, on Skadarlija street (which reminds of Tkalčićeva), people are gathering around and waiting for the opening of 18th Miniatures exhibition that travelled with us from Zaprešić to Belgrade. Our host Saša Pančić, academic sculptor by vocation, has already arranged everything. His good friend Kosta Bunuševac will spice up the opening with a short performance. Finally, he arrived.
Performance has started: beginning with imagination, from sound and words, to art. In about ten minutes of stream of consciousness, Kosta exposed his thoughts considering art. Kosta thinks that art is all about communication. He adopts an idea of cosmos as an organised system/pyramid, in which art represents continuous relation between the base and the peak of pyramid. The base symbolises realm of men, and the peak symbolises divine wisdom. According to that model, the artwork itself is a reification of divine in realm of men. It emanates a divine spark of beauty in men.
„Box-Book“ is a gift of Kosta Bunuševac to Art Association of Zaprešić. Kosta made it in honor of art and it's power of illumination. The box contains 34 digital versions of Kostas aquarells and text in which Kosta explains his artist statement.
