Dark Horse Experiment and Blender Studios presents:
I Live Across the Road From the Future
Solo exhibition by Drasko Boljevic
Out of the dark alleyways of yesteryear, collaged creatures traversed realities from the archives of art history and comic books pages. Reimagined into projected concoctions of present day uniqueness, they become fantasy driven visual poetry, a collection of stories set to surprise, amuse and challenge the world from the creator’s perspective.
In “I live across the road from the future”, artist Drasko Boljevic changes the walls and pavement of our Melbourne laneways, and for The Dark Horse Experiment canvas brings us new 3-D stencil works.
Opening Night | Friday 19 November, 2021 6pm - 9pm
Exhibition Runs | 19 November - 5 December
Gallery Hours | 12pm-5pm, Wednesday-Saturday
Dark Horse Experiment Gallery | 33-35 Dudley st. West Melbourne Enter via Maloney Lane
Drasko has been involved in the visual arts scene in Melbourne for over two decades. He has participated in the arts from diverse angles, from being a gallery co-owner (Azibi Gallery, St Kilda) in the late 90s, to working for several theatre companies as set designer, prop and puppet, including the Institute of Pataphysical Studies, More than Opera and Malthouse Theatre.
His installation Collaging Realities was shown at White Night Melbourne 2016, and you may have seen Drasko’s work when unexpectedly looking down in the laneways of Melbourne.
Drasko is currently continuing working within this sphere of 3-D stencil and video work, which can be better viewed with one eye closed, inciting to set on a journey through the eye of a camera, thus questioning what is real. His work tends to include a commentary on current issues, without leaving out a sense of play and humour.
