CURATED BY: Olja Stipanović

Curator -

Main Entry: cu·ra·tor

Function: noun

Etymology: (from Latin cura, care), cura -ae f. [care]; (1) [care taken, carefulness, pains, attention, minding of things or persons]; of business, [management, administration]; [an object of care, or a guardian, caretaker]. (2) [care felt, anxiety, worry, disquiet].

: one who has the care and superintendence of something; especially : one in charge of a museum, zoo, or other place of exhibit: Law. a guardian of a minor, disabled, or similar, esp. with regard to his or her property.



CURATORS [raising humans] is a group show featuring artists connected by a particular understanding of time and space. They are all curators. In the original Latin sense of the word - they are the curators of aches and pains, meals and playtimes, first steps and first words. They cure disappointment, scrapped knees, and all kinds of hunger. They are the caretakers of educational and developmental objects. They choose the right shoes and what is good for spine development, the amount of color, light, and music.

To put it bluntly – these artists are parents.



2 years ago, my son was born. He took over my body, my thoughts, and my life. As we gradually and difficulty started to unravel and take on our new [separate?] lives as Mother and Child, I began to realize that I too, am now a curator ….or I need to be it more diligently. Take care of a non-working thyroid, find niches and time slots for what I want to do and what I dream about doing, rearrange living space to have a room [a hallway with a desk] of my own.



CURATORS came about at the most complicated time for me. It happened out of need to find new references and out of great happiness upon discovering a whole new world of artist who enjoy and cherish what they do in the most zealous way. The installations, drawings, paintings, embroideries, photographs, performances, texts, screenings and objects I included in this exhibition are all “naptime productions”, works that came into being as these artists were becoming parents. Most of these works were realized [or are yet to be] in a time crunch, on a kitchen desk, while not alone, in between laundry drop off and a daycare pick up. They speak of frustrations, self-doubt, confrontations with prejudices, and questions about the necessity and feasibility of making art. These works examine the myths of artists’ [mothers’] ability to create, to shape and sustain a narrative. Through the works in this show, you can detect a peculiar sardonic thread, an obvious fascination with all sorts of refuse, and a time anxiety similar to the one found with a certain white rabbit. Because these artists consciously set the highest of parentally expectations without even blinking, [that of raising socially responsible and at the same time happy human beings], you will also uncover a passionate and wild love we have for both family and work – the kind that is rooted in a profound and altruistic sense of humanity.

My virtual friend, 48073, also a parent, has an album of dish photos. I think I will bring my camera to the kitchen today and see what happens.

Wow. Just read your "CURATORS [raising humans]: Open call." You are working with ideas that are very meaningful to me, the blending of parenthood and art-making, the "wild love we have for both family and work." I have been engaged in this "wild love" for seven years, but, as of yet, have not brought the two together in a coherent manner. I don't know if my work will be a fit for your project, but you have inspired me to investigate further the ways in which this dual "curatorial" practice has influenced and changed my life and work. Thanks for the inspiration.

Well wishes and best of luck to you and yours.

Hehe. Your kitchen sink pictures just caught my eye, I like them quite a bit. I see compositions in my sink all the time, but haven't had the courage to photograph them- worried I will forget to cook and clean.

Also, your red-lined hands are very compelling- at first, looking like blood ... and the hands drawn in red with red thread stitching- the mosaic installation- deep and powerful, yet somehow, modest, looking like a children's project.

And, looking again into your sink, it seems that you are cooking for a child. Is that right? Me, too.

Thanks for sharing, and best of luck to you.
