Children‘s Playgrounds – The Monuments Of A Void Childhood (2010-2012)
objects, photographs, drawings
With his newest body of work Kaludjerovic investigates childhood signifiers, such as playgrounds, electric cars and swings leaving the protagonists out of the picture, quite literally. Instead of having the children climb up the ladders, cross over playground bridges or sweep down slides, Kaludjerovic leaves an empty and hollow field, making the viewer feel slightly perturbed.
In a more abstract manner Kaludjerovic continues to point out our responsibility in shaping the next generation and perpetually questions the truthfulness of our acts vis a vis the youngest ones.
