Nobody Knows I’m Funny, 2016

The last exhibition of DARJA BAJAGIĆ is entitled Nobody knows I am funny. Knowing that her work is boldly uncomfortable and can brutalise the imagination, it feels slightly weird to associate the word funny with BAJAGIĆ‘s artistic practice.

Her collages, paintings and installations appropriate images drawn from the Internet, mostly faces of girls she found on porn websites or social networks, as well as serial killers’ ephemera such as letters and drawings. 

Some of her pieces in the exhibition have a rough, childlike quality thanks to their crafty presentation and the materials used, while some are precisely manufactured. Paradoxically both are hard to turn away from because the gallery space is featuring few elements, but also because the pieces are aesthetically appealing.

Although she stated in interviews that her work has no political position, DARJA BAJAGIĆ establishes, thanks to the use of provocative material, an occasion during which we as viewer or visitor have the necessity of taking a stand. An occasion that requires to examine the fundamentally political question of one’s personal responsibility for looking.

Nobody Knows I’m Funny is on view at Carlos / Ishikawa, London until October 29, 2016.

Along the exhibition, an online publication is available in pdf via http://www.carlosishikawa.com/exhibitions/nobodyknows/nobodyknows.pdf

Additionally I really recommend to read this discussion BAJAGIĆ had in 2014 with JEAN KAY for aqnb.com.
