'Lost Cabinet' by David Maljkovic Home
A history lesson in the form of an art exhibition, 'Lost Cabinet' looks at the potential of monuments and pavilions built during a period of optimism in former Yugoslavia but that are now lost or forgotten. He showcases these old monuments to reveal an alternative future, envisioning them in a more prosperous future era as opposed to the languishing memories of the potential of social realism that they are today. Amongst his work is a collage from the project 'Lost Memories from These Days', which looks at the now declining fairgrounds in Zagreb and imagines what could have been for this past symbol of economic prosperity between East and West. In the artist's own words: ¨I consider the tired place also to be an oasis, a place of potential pause¨.
