The project was exhibited at U10 Art Space in Belgrade, May 15th-23rd. Exhibition was based on the photo book of the same name which contains the photos of 100 auto-sculptures, which I came across during walks in various parts of Belgrade. The selection consists only of objects whose original purpose was not to occupy a parking space (bricks, crates, sticks, branches, boxes, secondary raw materials, etc.) and which were arranged/selected specifically for this purpose and for temporary use.
Auto-sculpture (auto – as in motor vehicle and as a relationship with oneself) is a term I used to name various objects that residents place in front of their homes located outside zoned city parking areas in order to occupy a part of public space for private use – to park their vehicles. Altogether, these objects assembly an illegal army of artefacts that possess a special ad-hoc aesthetics and symbolic poetics, serving a purpose different from their initial, and therefore being programmatically recycled.
