Rodrigo Matheus


For Rodrigo Matheus’s intervention along the lighting tract of the Gallery-Legacy Colaković’s first level, the artist has borrowed a series of prop objects from a popular Belgrade prop house. Gloved hands clutch objects ranging from handguns to wedding veils to cultish statues, acknowledging these objects’ potential to gain status through context and display, whether in a prop closet, film, or art installation.
