Relief, bronze, 1999
Great Babylon

Never realized, Great Babylon relief was designed for the foyer of the KPGT theater, just before Serbia enters the war with the NATO alliance, during 1999. Conceived as a museological reconstruction of the found pieces of the “once magnificent bronze pillar” that adorned the lobby of the old sugar factory and it represented cyclical creation and decay of the cosmos.

The author paid to cast only this piece to keep track of this unfinished business. Other plaster models were taken as collateral for the unpaid foundry business.

Just as the great Babylon disappeared in one day, so this endeavor remained only the memory of an unfulfilled dream.

Silver plated bronze, dimensions 50x30cm.

“All compounded things are impermanent.”
