duration: 9:27

“… The Film describes in a surreal way our relation to the simple but important thing: Bread. The artist includes in this film images from his former performances, mixed them with new elements and sounds. The result is a film, that points with humor and strong images on the banal and ordinary nourishment and puts it into the center. … ”    (Dr. Eduard Fried)

Mladen Stilinović – Works with food

object  –  1978 -2009,
artist born in Belgrade. Lives in Zagreb
exhibition: 11’th International Istambul Biennial

“Since the mid-1970s, Mladen Stilinović has developed artistic strategies using ‘poor’ materials. His works are simple in their execution and engage with such subjects as pain, poverty, death, power and the language of repression, as ongoing and mutually connected conditions. Usually the title is inscribed into the work itself, for example, in a series dealing with food: Geometry for the poor, Cabbage, Borecole, Potato, Bean, Leek, Corn, Cakes, I bite myself, I devour myself, Eat yourself, Bite yourself and Charge, cakes!” – text source
