Aleksandar Todorovic
Buy It All, Eat It All
August 25th - September 20th, 2017

DIO HORIA presented a solo exhibition of Serbian artist, Aleksandar Todorovic. The title of the show “Buy it All, Eat It All” acted as an ironic catchphrase that best depicts the ever growing consuming-obsessed era. It could be perceived as an inverse mantra, that shouts for awareness and criticism through its conceptual repetition. Todorovic brought complex, dystopian narratives to the foreground with a satirical mood and a wry wit. These narratives did not come from an inaccessible future but they highlighted problematic conditions of current times. In his subject matter, “sacred” personages from the fast-moving consumed goods – food and entertainment – alongside Christian Orthodox saints who are also part of the consumption industry, occupy a central role. His work blends together references of Byzantine iconography and editorial cartoons. The combination of these miscellaneous elements, highlights his craftsmanship and brings to the fore his humorous momentum.
