In the gallery "ULUPUH" in Tkalčićeva 14, on Tuesday 6.12. in 19 Hour, an exhibition of Sasha Ćetković's "Like It" opens.
Photographer Saša Ćetković conceived the project "Like Him" as a series of 14 photos that consist of his photographs and those of his father, famous photographer Joze Ćetković (1940 - 1986.). The first five photos in the series are Joze Ćetković and the other nine Saša Ćetković. "I had a unique privilege to live with a dad who was a phenomenal photographer and my greatest model in the work," says Saša Ćetković, an affirmed photographer today.
His father at the end of his life, in the hospital bed, said, "Be brave and better than me in photography." Exposing his work with his fathers demanded, he admits, quite courageous, and he dared to dive at this exhibition, which devoted his father to his 30 anniversary
"Saša Ćetković's photography project" Like Him "is his personal life story, in which two themes are interwoven. One is the theme of the father and son dedicated to the same profession; father mentor and son whose father is a model, educator and expert counselor, who opens the door to the picture and supports him in an effort to continue his footsteps. The theme is communion, presence and communication. The second, which is intertwined with the first and emotional color of the whole story, is the theme of breaking up - the fathers' death, departure and interruption of physical communication. But also the establishment of new, in some spiritual, celestial spheres. Although here are, of course, clearly noticeable features of individual expressions and both authors, we in this authoritarian duality
we discover in this context and similarities. These common lines now talk about the selected photos of this project; from one of the most distinctive and most famous motives of one and the other author. The motives that determine them and which are in some way a metaphor for their creativity: from the acts of Joze Ćetković and the landscape of Saša Ćetković. With all the author
individuality, combined with the synthesized purity of the visual arts, the complexity and purity of the form, the compositional simplicity as well as the painting intonation (in Joze Ćetković, drawing drawings and graphics, and in Saša Ćetković painting). Cleanliness, simplicity and simplicity, unmistakably and best describe the female acts of Joze Ćetković and the landscapes of Saša Ćetković. Likewise, the miraculous geometry of the act with Joze Ćetković finds its pandan
in the thoughtful landscape geometry of Saša Ćetković, and the decomposition of the motifs by light and its deconstruction and transformation occurs, perhaps by different methods but by a similar way of thinking in both photographers; both in father and son. For the same is a research photographic passion, written in the family genre of both authors, "wrote Višnja Slavica Gabout in the accompanying catalog.
