grafisches Element

In his works Vladimir Nikolicfocuses on the relationship between the tradition and contemporary arts and that between regional and global cultures. This is reflected also in his video Rhythm in which he depicted five people standing on a stage while making the Christian Orthodox sign of the cross to the techno music beat. Arranged in police line-up fashion, it becomes absurd when their gestures fall out of synch.

Belief is portrayed as an unquestioning effort to simply keep pace. Their uniformity, produced through repetition, in turn produces a performative orthodoxy, which then seems to drive itself. Religion gets rocked at 120 b.p.m. It also explains how ideology is made to remain in a person's body and conscience through physical practices.
