Landscape experience. Robert Jankuloski and Monika Moteska


After the successful presentation of the exhibition Landscape Experience by Robert Jankuloski and Monika Moteska at the Pavilion of North Macedonia at the 59th Venice Biennale of Art, in collaboration with the National Gallery of the Republic of North Macedonia, the exhibition is now presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Novi Sad. It is a multimedia project focused on the exploration of the archaeology of space, the layers of abandoned and neglected landscapes within the collective culture of memory, and the revival of the 'presence of absence', positioning them in a new context. The relationships between life and death, beauty and ugliness, health and poison form the basis of a critical approach to the themes previously explored by the authors.

In the context of existential philosophy, 'Man is the only being conscious of his existence', continuing with Sartre's thoughts on human freedom in terms of personal choice, choosing possibilities, and taking responsibility for events and risks of human existence, leads to a conclusion or contradiction of the meaninglessness or absurdity of human existence, often confirmed by many examples throughout human history. The project Landscape Experience by Robert Jankuloski and Monika Moteska explores this subject as well as many other underlying layers.

The questions they raise are directly aimed at the connection between ecology and corporate imperialism, gender perspectives, collective identities, and the importance of decolonization not only of history but also of nature. They examine power relations in society and the dangers posed by mutual struggles through senseless wars (whether explicit or implicit, real or psychological, physical or chemical) and the increasingly aggressive neoliberal exploitation and abuse of natural resources. They investigate issues of human freedom, responsibility, and risks of their own actions, as well as the survival of humanity as a value of modern society. They address accumulated problems, highlighting the importance of establishing a new order that would provide an opportunity to overcome the anthropocentric view of the world. Can beauty simultaneously be subtly ugly, and can aesthetically valuable become a servant of evil?
