SOUL – SEARHING

„Putujemo bez sećanja, bez uspomena, bez pamćenja. Putujemo, bez sebe.“
Od izvesnih prvih radova nastalih pre petnaestak godina do nedavnih slika Mladen Lazarević nastavlja da ukazuje na pitanja koja se odnose na različite fenomene savremenog društva i svakodnevnog života. Korišćenjem znaka / reči kao poruka, stvara dela koja se bave ličnim i kolektivnim iskustvima. Dok postupkom dešifrovanja okruženja pretvara tekst u kodirani znak, u poruku koja je naizgled jasna i bliska, istovremeno otkriva nove nivoe značenja. Gradeći predstave na tom odnosu prisustva i odsustva, prenošenjem zapisa na platno ili objekte Mladen Lazarević postavlja u središte pažnje mnogobrojne fenomene. Slike jasnih poruka, karakteristične tipografije, čije je poreklo u mašinama za kucanje, unete na brižljivo oslikanu i tonski modelovanu površinu platna u fokus dovode i odnos ličnog i opšteg kroz kritičko ispitivanje.
Šta je to što jeziku kao ispisanoj poruci daje moć da probudi i podstakne gledaoca ili, pak, tu poruku preoblikuje u slikovno polje koje gubi smisao i sadžaj u apsurdnosti svakodnevnice?

SOUL – SEASRHING

„We are traveling, without memories, without reminiscences, without remembrances. We are traveling, without ourselves“.
Since he created his first pieces of art some fifteen years ago, up to the pictures painted recently, Mladen Lazarević has continued to ask questions related ti different phenomena of the modern society and everyday life. By using signs / words as messages, he creates pieces which engage in personal and collective experiences. He uses the procedure of deciphering of the surroundings to turn the text into a coded character, a message which is seemingly clear and familiar, while at the same time it discovers new layers of meaning. By creating notions on the relations between presence and absence, transferring inscriptions to canvas or objects, Mladen Lazarević puts many phenomena in the center of attention. Pictures with clear messages, of characteristic typography, origin of which is in typewriters, brought onto carefully painted and tonally modified canvas surface, also bring into focus the relation between personal and general through critical examination. What is it that gives the power to language as a written massage to awaken and inspire the observer, or to transform the messsage into a pictorial field which loses sense and content in the absurdity of everyday life?
