Milena Jovicevic – Don’t Be Afraid

Through different techniques Milena Jovićević expound the problems of the gender ratio. In exuberant drawings and animations Jovićević creates an unconventional and aggressively funny version of the story of Adam and Eve and Biblical theme of Genesis. Her story becomes a constant game of genders, interlacement of senses, wandering of imaginary through Eros as one of the possible paths of understanding and paths to the end. Encounter and interaction is not always just the joy of giving, taking and creation but it is the issue and another dimension- aggression. Milena leaves the viewer the opportunity to imagine own content nearest to his perception and to give the meaning that is extremely personal. Simultaneously, we are introduced in the virtual world of icons by meditation between old truths and new experiences. Swing and swinging in her drawings and animations have so many symbolic interpretations. One of them is related to traditional culture (prosperity of individuals and community, marriage and health of those who are swinging, harvest of agriculture). Swinging has immediate identification with sexual- erotic spheres and coitus, but behind the pleasure of swinging there is also a danger. Dangerous swing, made of barbed wire hurts, kills those who are swinging on it. The question is: Is that a path that we have to take anyway?

    Very interesting! It certainly is a good reminder of how lucky we are here in the U.S. to have the freedoms we do (not to say that ev#&rthingye8217;s perfect here though …). I’d be interested in how she deals with her personal faith versus the kinds of beliefs she is surrounded by. It must be hard to keep from getting cynical and angry.
