Maja Djordjevic’s exhibition called "I don’t know you but I love you" consisted of two parts. At the Dio Horia exhibition space, a series of the artist’s paintings were presented. These paintings were part of an imaginary diary she kept from the moment she was invited to do the residency in Mykonos until the time she arrived to the island. These works reflected images of her imagination of how Mykonos must be and her emotions for the artistic opportunity she was given. Djordjevic made them without having researched or seen any images of Mykonos. Then, the second part of the exhibition took place online, where Djordjevic presented digital doodles she made during her time in Mykonos. These doodles (that had the title "Now I know you and I really love you"), were presented throughout posts offered to selected social media accounts of local users (restaurant accounts, tourist agencies and so on), who inspired the artist while she was in Mykonos.
Maja Djordjevic (b. 1990) belongs to the first generation of children doodling in their computers. A doodle is a simple sketch that depicts either a specific representational image or simple abstract shapes. Typical examples of doodles are sketches found on the margins of school notebooks from students that have lost their interest during class. Popular doodles are comic characters, imaginary creatures, landscapes, geometric shapes and scribbles. In the early ‘90s the first digital doodles came out; they looked similar to their offline counterparts but they had been created using software on a computer.
