– On TV in Serbia! – 

The TV channel RTV reported about our exhibition “May I introduce: Alien!” in the gallery SULUV in Novi Sad.  

Here you can see the contribution from 27.10. – from min.07:28, an interview with Andrea Palašti.


…dies ist nicht die dokumentation einer performance, die in serbien entstand. dies ist ein gespräch, das wie unkraut wuchert, zwischen österreich und serbien.
what does it mean to be a ‘weed’?
vielleicht sind unsere gesprächsfäden unkräuter, lacht milica.
does it mean unwanted, taking resources from the wanted? or does it mean being resilient, a pioneer, a survivor?
ovo je razgovor koji ne vodi nikuda i ne mora biti od koristi.
weeds do work as well.
ko odlučuje da li sam korov ili ne?



The work “words & weeds” is based on the intervention created during the residency at Reflektor Gallery, Uzice (RS) in summer.
Chat: Lindsey Nicholson, Milica Dukić, Lena Violetta Leitner

Exhibition in the gallery Improper Walls, 08.09.-24.09.
