After 20 Years I Call the Museum and I Tell Them the Title, 2017

wood and hand made soap, 206 x 126 x 100 cm (OMI Art Residency collection, USA)

production: OMI Art, USA

Series of Black Roof sculptures extracts from Nikolic’s large size work exhibited in 2016 at the Salon of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade SUPERSTRUCTURE, whose topic was also a rooftop. SUPERSTRUCTURE was an installation of huge proportions, shaped like a rooftop, built from the thrown away material the actor collected (old doors, windows, furniture parts, planks…). The sculpture had a base base of 120 square meters and it spread throughout the whole gallery. It was a colorful collage made of things that we usually throw away. In contrast to the SUPERSTRUCTURE, by burning such diverse pieces of wood in this work Nikolic tried to get a monolith representation that would make a sublime, almost sacral effect by its natural, deep black color.
