Milan Zulic (Sombor, 1972)
Multi-disciplinary artist based in Switzerland. Through a variety of media, his work explored the possibility of creativity out of silence and emptiness of the heart. Before creating art, he has to be so humble, almost nobody, a hollow bamboo. In this absence, there comes a great universal flood. That flood can become poetry, a painting, music, a dance, or a sculpture. Thousands of dimensions are available, and Milan just trying to allow it, simply allowing the universe to flow through him. Over the past 30 years, he has been receiving many international awards and recognitions. His paintings, sculptures, photography, video and extended media have been shown in 35 solo exhibitions and more than 300 collective exhibitions in Belgrade, Novi Sad, Podgorica, Rijeka, Zagreb, Ljubljana, Napoli, Trieste, Piran, Gdansk, Varna, Sofia, Athens, Skopje, Barcelona, Valencia, Málaga, Marseille, Lugano, Zürich, Warsaw, Buenos Aires, Santa Fe, Shillong, Kochi, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Leon, Toluca, Coventry, Cairo, Valparaiso, Camagüey, Coimbra, Newark, Vancouver, Long Island City, Miami, Seattle, Sao Luis, Rennes, Nantes, St Malo, Maubeuge, Stuttgart, Düsseldorf, Antwerp, Liège, Nenagh, Luxembourg, Moscow, Amorgos, Sikinos, Paphos, Kalamata, Zanjan, Tehran, Taos, Guadalajara, Monterrey, Mexico City, La Paz, Auckland, Rome, Milan, Madrid, New York City, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur …
These photographs, that are no more photographs, impres not only in their sheer volume but they (in their new form)
also provide an all together different visual dimension/perspective.
the artist had used photographic waste (old unwanted
photographs) upon wich he applied various acids and hydrogen peroxides thus creating kaleidostopic shapes that were
then turned into drawings by careful and uneven removal of the surface. the author allows
the original photographic pigment to show in places so that in turn they reflect his intuitive artistic expression.
Eleven thousand images speak for eleven thousand miniature works of art and within eleven thousand photographs there
are as many associative, geometric and expressive abstractions.
with their unusual slits, splits and cuts, these photos visually verbalise thoughts on warm summer breeze,
traveling and as such represent lucid imprints of images incarnated within the abstract and imaginative surrounding.
all this proves that this artist, who cannot be measured by the volume of this exhibition, is not only someone with an
enormous artistic potential but also someone who's best work is to come...
