Homofaber - Craft before craft / Homofaber - Zanat pre zanata



HOMOFABER


This series of photographs follows the unusual craft and process of making funerary equipment, as well as my exploration of the meaning of death through a visual experience that questions our relationship to transience.

Through this series, I enter a world that is often avoided

in society, but at the same time brings a new perspective.

Photographs are not only an aesthetic experience but also an

invitation to introspection and an open conversation

about topics that are essential to human existence.


I was interested in the process of making funeral caskets, how long it takes, and who are the people whose day begins and ends with death. After a few days spent in the workshop and their neutrality towards this topic, I find beauty in the simplest elements and their work.


This workshop is run by the Gligorijević family and is located in Paraćin.

HOMOFABER


Ova serija fotografija prati jedan neuobičajen zanat i proces proizvodnje pogrebne opreme, takođe i jedan vid mog istraživanja značenja smrti kroz vizuelno iskustvo koje preispituje naš odnos prema prolaznosti. Kroz ovu seriju, zalazim u svet koji je često izbegavan u društvu, ali istovremeno donosi novu perspektivu. Fotografije nisu samo estetsko iskustvo, već i poziv na introspekciju i otvoren razgovor o temama koje su esencijalne za ljudsko postojanje.


Zanimao me je proces pravljenja pogrebnih sanduka, koliko je potrebno vremena I ko su ljudi kojima dan počinje I završava se smrću. Posle par dana provedenih u radionici i njihove neutralnosti prema ovoj temi u najjednostavnijim elementima i njihovom radu pronalazim lepotu.

 

Ovu radionicu drži porodica Gligorijević i nalazi se u Paraćinu.
