Stevan Kojić: A Self-Sustainable System of Absurdity

Stevan Kojić: A Self-Sustainable System of Absurdity
Installation, changeable dimensions
26 August–17 September 2021

We invite you to the opening of the exhibition A Self-Sustainable System of Absurdity, intermedia installation by Stevan Kojić, which will take place on Thursday, 26 August 2021, at 7 p.m. in the artKIT exhibition space.


A Self-Sustaining System of Absurdity is an interactive-autonomous, hybrid and generative installation, a bio-technological structure that is an independent, self-sustainable and self-sufficient form, but at the same time also a futuristic experimental habitat, open towards potential external interactions or possible users and settlers. The interactive environment is constructed from active subjects, rejected organic and non-organic objects such as personal possessions: a bicycle, bathtub and the like, electronic waste and plants connected by means of sensors and computers, elements that become an interface of sorts, serving for the purpose of communication between a visitor and a computer. It constitutes an allusion to post-apocalyptic spaces, utopian/dystopian micro-communities based on a new cohabitation between man, nature and technology through an emphasis of the absurdity of some social relations.

The art project A Self-Sustainable System of Absurdity (2010–2020) deals with topics such as: ecology, artificial intelligence and creation of self-sustainable systems, and also with the issues of private and public relations, the problem of perception of the content and changeability of information.
