Daiga Grantina


Daiga Grantina’s installation through the exterior of the Gallery-Legacy Čolaković draws from Robert Altman’s 1977 film 3 Women, which follows the shifting dynamics of the relationship between Millie and Pinky, two roommates who live in an apartment complex run by Edgar and his enigmatic wife Willie, an artist who spends her days painting frescos of amphibious women in the complex’s pool. Through her sculptural work, Grantina navigates the film’s expansive landscapes, the regenerative quality of the titular women, and the mythic, sensual powers inherent to water.
