Artists: Nikola Uzunovski, Tihomir Topuzovski, Aleksandra Petrusevska and Vedran

OFF has been shaped by recognizing the value of exclusive contemporary art models that react towards limitations of any kind. The emphasis is on spatial reaction, impositions, and reactions by both, the artists, the curators and the audience, increasing the limitations of the gallery space. Such an approach would operate on different levels: (i) the artistic level: the reaction of the artist thought her/his production that would extract the energy of the gallery space; (ii) the physical level; through the spatial interventions; (iii) the reception level; by experiencing the exhibition through implied political and social dynamics of the space.

Tihomir Topuzovski is interested in researching the potentials of mundane objects and their semiotic complexity that challenges the limitation of life. Aleksandra Petrusevska re-narrates the impossible personal stories of despair through the aesthetics of destruction. Vedran Bojanovski captures the gazes of ordinary people through the paths of memory and fragility. Nikola Uzunovski questions the limitations of the possibilities that are presented in the dreams, efforts and productions of the art workers.
