Bojan Šarčević


Bojan Šarčević’s exhibition element (MA-SARCB-00075) consists of stone and aluminum, simple components that result in an object both practical and hyper-aestheticized. The confluence between use and image recall the obligations a prop must fulfill while on screen: to overtly communicate its objecthood, without necessarily executing its intended function.


Bojan Šarčević (1974, Serbia) spent part of his childhood in Morocco and Algeria, but was living in Sarajevo at the outbreak of the Bosnian War. Šarčević studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, France, graduating in 1997. He continued his studies at Rijksakademie in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
