OKOLNOST , 50. OKTOBARSKI SALON / CIRCUMSTANCE , 50th OCTOBER SALON

I stole my brothers chick, she is not too beautiful, but also not used too much (she could lose some weight). Last week we killed her parents, and now we got a place of our own.

CIRCUMSTANCE / 50th OCTOBER SALON

The Cultural Centre of Belgrade Award

The jury of the Cultural Centre of Belgrade, made up of Marina Djurdjevic, MA, the Director of the Cultural Centre of Belgrade, Jovan Čekić, a philosopher and Maja Ćirić, an independent curator, by an unanimous decision gave the award to Jamesdin (Aleksandar Jestrović, 1972). The jury’s decision was based on a wish to recognise an artistic practice that produces a difference, on account of the fact that Jamesdin’s production “comes into being through a reflection of multiplied and unsystematised” personal and cultural references that surround him, which is an act of performativity and not a sublimated result. His position “within the limitless dimensions” of contemporary cultural models in the global context was the decisive factor for the jury’s decision. The Centre’s award is given as an annual accolade and presupposes the organisation of a solo exhibition at one of the Centre’s galleries (the Fine Arts Gallery or the Artget Gallery) in 2011/2012.

Nagrada Kulturnog centra Beograda / 50. Oktobarski salon

Žiri Kulturnog centra Beograda u sastavu Mr Marina Đurđević, direktorka Kulturnog Centra Beograd, Jovan Čekić, filozof, Maja Ćirić, nezavisna kustoskinja, jednoglasno je dodelio nagradu Jamesdinu (Aleksandar Jestrović 1972). Odluka žirija utemljena je na želji za prepoznavanjem umetničke prakse koja proizvodi razliku, a zbog činjenice da Jamesdinova produkcija “nastaje refleksijom umnoženih i nesistematiziovanih“ ličnih i kulturnih referenci koje ga okružuju i koje je akt performativnosti, a ne sublimirani rezultat. Njegova pozicija „unutar nepreglednih“ dimenzija savremenih kulturnih obrazaca u globalnom kontekstu, bila je presudna za odluku žirija. Nagrada Centra se dodeljuje kao godišnje priznanje, a podrazumeva organizaciju samostalne izložbe u jednoj od Galerija Centra (Likovnoj Galeriji ili Galeriji Artget) 2011-2012. godine.
