I am a student, fine art major from Split, Croatia and i humbly ask for help with a production of one of my masters projects!
The campaign is for funding the printing of an artbook called "Ladičari (Armarii)".
The concept started last year where i made small sculptures of "insect like animals" out of stuff you find lost in your drawer as a sort of forgotten archive presented in a classic museum display (casing with insects).
Here is a short statement about that work :
The work "Archive" takes the basic elements that you would find in a museum, a casing with insect speciments. In this work i was interested in taking one segment of a way people archive important things and decided to display "insects" made up from things that were discarded, found and repurposed-trash. I painted them black and covered them in a tar like substance, further mimicking a natural process of fossilization and preservation.
I decided to further the idea by making an encyclopedia , a sort of quick guide of species. I took the photos and made the layout, wrote the text, gave them names and sorted them in different species. They are basically small animals who live in the natural environment of the artist's workplace.
The funds would go into the very production of 4 copies of the book.
The pages are A3 format, one will be printed on fabriano rosaspina paper, and the other three on 300 gram paper. The print itself will be hand drawn silkscreen print in three colours (each page).
