Artist Statement:  A collaborative exhibition "Mare Nostrum" is a tribute to my travels to Greece from my native country, Serbia, with my family every summer in the past several years. The exhibition depicts a vast space of the Aegean Sea and a purity of its blue color. Lucid memories of this astonishing scenery as well as memories of my childhood at the Adriatic Sea, before the war in my native country, have inspired me to dedicate my most recent creations to these journeys. 
 
The exhibition is a collaboration with an Italian artist, Maurizio Giuseppucci, and his vision of the Adriatic Sea through photography and video work. Maurizio is an accomplished and versatile artist with a refined level of expertise for contemporary art.
 
Maurizio and I both grew up in two countries divided by the Adriatic Sea. The sea meant closeness, but political systems often times stood on a way and created more distance. By collaborating on this exhibition we strive to show intimacy in proximity for people of both lands. Our attachment to the sea was always beyond political differences between Eastern and Western Europe.
