ARTIST DETAILS

MARKO CHAKALOVIC

Montenegro

Cycle “B”

“Using clear visual elements, my art can be described as a fantasy that contains surrealistic, allegorical and occasionally satirical elements. The figure dominates in my works in one such expressive and sometimes classic way, occupying a central place in my work. It is an inspiration and a phase of constant development and continuous artistic and philosophical research in the field of sculpture or painting. My art story is about a human being in the present, the era of technology, material values and the lack of ethics; this leads its existence into a merciless embrace of alienation. The human, encouraged by a kind of personal ‘demiurge’, tries to create his own world from a bunch of ideas that draw the limits of rationality. By idealizing the experience, knowledge is the only result of this personal experience, and everything that remains, in that case, is ‘I’ now.”

ARTWORKS

"Silentium" – Silence – N°1444

Classical sculpture with surreal and steam punk elements.
This is a story about comunication between young people in era of social media. This work represent my reaction and experiance to fake kind of comunication . Today many people avoid to talk directly and to express their true emotions ,i that case they choose to be apart of abstract space when word become and convert just in a digital copy of our reallity.
Composition contain three figures where two of them represent man and woman which are conected with wires in abstract word of the internet. Two hearts are their hearts , they discribe emotions which are online and visible to anyone. Central figure is personification of comunication , she has eight arms what symbolise eight popular social media in the world. To many words without real comunication between couples or friends are just a part of our life which standing on our displays. We are in silence.

This is a story about the two brave brothers ( ex warriors ) who were looking for a flower that will give them eternal life.
So they entered in the forbidden forest where they encountered the protectors of that place, the forest fairy, who wanted a king they didn't have. One fairy was attracted by one of them. Then older guy began to tell the stories about himself and his works in superlatives, but he lied a lot.
Fairy fell in love with him and she toughthe is good to be a king. She began to sing some magic words so slowley as whispering and at that moment he looked in her face and realized that she turned him into a half-timber and that he got an eternal life but he will be stuck in one place forever.
His younger brother than realizes that it is better to live once and accept the weight and beauty of life than to be eternally tied to the land as plant and how long tongue and pretend you are smartest and best in everything can cost you and be worst than death. He decides to escape from the forest and returns to his life.

Rotten wooden and rusty metal structures are around her, so it looks like she is nailed to the structures or she wants to break free. The painting represents a young person which is caught by time and surrounded with stereotypes

"Garden of emotions" and "The Dreamers" N°0782

Part 1:
The legend claims that before emotions were creatures and they had their bodies, God decided to make a man and then he collects them and makes from their bodies to put them in the human soul.
I have shown them like they have bodies again and I picked some of them to create more poetical piece which will remind to combination of antique and modern mythology. So , I used as inspiration : greed, jealousy, shame, love, madness, fear, hatred, desire, wisdom and pleasure.

Part 2:
I was inspired with true Montenegrin story about "Three Sisters ( Tri Sorele)" . They were waiting for the whole life their husbands, sailors, to return from the ocean, but they never returned and after years and years of hope and dreams they died with faith and same desire in silence.
Sad a??
So we can see a girl in the embrace of her beloved with a hand extended to the observer, a girl who is hugging the to, while the imagination becomes a mother and a sleeping girl between them. The male figure with the dog's head represents their strength and will of their dreams.
