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 being presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Novi Sad. It is a multimedia project that focuses on the exploration of space archaeology, the layeredness of abandoned and neglected landscapes within the collective culture of memory, and the revival of the 'presence of the absent,' positioning them in a new context. The relationships between life and death, beauty and ugliness, health and toxicity form the basis of a critical approach to themes previously explored by the authors.

"Man is the only being conscious of his existence," in the context of the philosophy of existence - continuing with Sartre's thinking about human freedom in terms of personal choice, choosing possibilities, and taking responsibility for events and risks to human existence, a conclusion or contradiction about the absurdity or meaninglessness of human existence can be drawn, which is often confirmed in many examples throughout the history of mankind. The project Landscape experience by Robert Jankuloski and Monika Moteska explores this theme, along with 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 decolonizing not only history but also nature. They examine power relations in society and the dangers posed by internal struggles through senseless wars (whether explicit or implicit, real or psychological, physical or chemical) and the increasingly aggressive neocolonial exploitation and abuse of natural resources. They explore questions of human freedom, responsibility, and the risks of their own actions, as well as the question of the survival of humanity as a value of modern society. They address accumulated problems, pointing out the importance of establishing a new order that would provide the possibility of overcoming an anthropocentric view of the world. Can beauty simultaneously be deceitfully ugly, and can aesthetically valuable become a servant of evil?
