Panic Book
Animation | hdv | black and white | 5'45'' | Serbia | 2015
Panic Book is both a set of drawings and an animated video. The drawings are made on book pages. The books often come from the family library, and deal with the political and philosophical thought of Yugoslav socialism. The pages then become part of a reconstruction of cult sequences of Hitchcock movies: scenes of fear, panic or flight. This rereading of the legacy of Tito`s socialism that ended in a “cul de sac” is close to power-up mechanisms and disaster announcements used by the master of suspense
Born in 1987, Nikolic lives and works in Belgrade, Serbia. Graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts (painting department) , currently in PhD, he received several prizes for drawing and a special prize for his mural installations. Initiator of U10 Art Space, a self-managed artist space, he was exhibited since 2007 in numerous solo and group shows in Serbia and abroad. In 2015 he was invited to Basel (List), Vienna (Parallel) and Paris (Cultural Center of Serbia). He is currently on show at Caixa Forum in Barcelona, Spain and Kunslerhaus in Vienna, Austria
