ZLATNA SOBA
Prostor, odnosno  hol-galerija  u kome je rad izložen obiluje detaljima koji su sami po sebi  vizuelne atrakcije: 2 zida i neki detalji su obojeni jarko žutom bojom, pod je obložen crno-belim pločicama, u centralnom delu na plafonu se nalazi ogromno ogledalo sastavljeno od kvadratnih segmenata, pogled privlači pult recepcije, tu je par staklenih i par drvenih vrata, veliki prozori sa trakastim zavesama, atraktivna rasveta i svetleća tela… 
Naravno da je takav ambijent bio za mene interesantan da i ja dam svoj doprinos vizuelnom doživljaju tako što ću u centralnom delu hola-galerije izložiti digitalnu animaciju velikih dimenzija na kojoj je prikazana soba u kojoj šljašte zlatni zidovi, plafon i pod. Osim animacije, deo izloženog rada su i svetlosni efekti, za čiju je realizaciju zaslužan Radovan Samolov. Oni proizvode blještavilo koje se odražava u ogledalu, na animaciji  i na staklenim površinama unaokolo. Ovo blještanje je vidljivo i spolja, kroz prozore galerije i čini interesantan kontrast sa spoljnim ambijentom u kome se nalazi galerija – a to su sami obronci ogromne Manastirske šume u kojima vlada mir i spokoj.

Uvodna reč umetničkog sekretara Kulturnog centra sa otvaranje izložbe

 Zlatna soba Aleksandre Vasović

 Kroz kreativno rekonstruisanje stvarnosti, igrom svetlosti i boje, umetnica nas uvodi u jedan sasvim drugačiji prostor. Digitalna projekcija sobe koja ima zlatne zidove, plafon i pod, na zidu galerije, stoji kao imaginarna slika; svelosni efekti u realnom prostoru, koji se odražavaju na zidovima, staklenim površinama i ogledalima u galeriji, ruše granicu između imaginarnog i realanog, između dvodimenzionalnog i trodimenzionalnog prostora i posmatraču omogućavaju specifično sadejstvo sa galerijskim prostorom.

Svetlosni efekti aktiviraju prazninu galerije i time i sama galerija postaje konstitutivni elemenat instalacije.

Galerija prerasta u prostor vizuelnih atrakcija koje Aleksandra Vasović osmišljava i stvara.

Mi kao posetioci, pozvani smo u tu zlatnu sobu i njen smo deo.

Stoga, usudite se. Zakoračite u taj drugačiji prostor.

Sami doživite i osetite Aleksandrinu sobu.

GOLDEN ROOM

Room, i.e. gallery lobby hosting the project is rich in details with them being a visual attractions in their very nature: 2 walls and some details are painted in bright yellow, floor is coated with black & white tills, central section of the ceiling is occupied by huge square-segmented mirror, view is attracted by a reception desk, there is a couple of glass and couple of wooden doors, big windows with strip curtains, attractive lighting and illuminant items…
For sure, this ambience was interesting for me, urging me to contribute to this visual experience by using central section of gallery lobby for exhibiting a large-sized digital animation showing the room with sparkling golden walls, ceiling and floor. In addition to animation, part of exhibited project is lighting effects and their producer is Radovan Samolov. They are performing dazzling reflects in the mirror, onto the animation and surrounding glass surfaces. This dazzling is also visible from the outside, through gallery windows, and presents an interesting contrast to external ambience where the gallery is located – the very hillsides of huge Monastery forest (Manastirska suma), home of peace and quiet.

A statement given on the exhibition opening by artistic secretary of the Cultural Center

Golden room of Aleksandra Vasovic

 Through creative reconstruction of reality, the artist introduced us into the completely different space by playing with light and color. Digital projection of the room with golden walls, ceiling and floor, gallery wall stands as an imaginary painting; light effects in real space reflected on the walls, glass surfaces and mirrors in the gallery, disintegrate borders between the imaginary and realistic, between two dimensional and three dimensional space and provide an observer with specific synergy with gallery space.

Light effects activate vacancy of the gallery, thereby enabling the gallery itself to become a constitutive element of the installation.

The gallery transforms into the space of visual attractions designed and created by Aleksandra Vasovic.

As visitors, we are invited into this golden room and we are its comprising part.

So, dare! Step into this different space.

Experience and feel Aleksandra’s room for yourselves.
