Miloš Tomic is a multimedia artist whose projects span film, photography, collages, and sculpture. Tomic studied directing and then animation—experiences that continue to influence his practice. His subjects are either comprised of or preoccupied with disposable or disposed objects. In fact, his doctoral thesis was titled “Preciousness of discarded objects, i.e. trash as the material for film, photography…” His object-based works are modified quotidian objects, like shoes sewn shut or brushes with thorns instead of bristles. Tomic also has a category of sculpture called “Pearls” which, as he describes, are “to be understood as things that are precious, wrongly forgotten or lost somewhere, but now found.” Together with Vladimir Peric Miloš Tomic represented Serbia at the Venice Biennial 2013.
The work of Egyptian artist Basim Magdy uses film, painting, slide projection and installation. To him super8 is not a nostalgic medium. In his examinations of war, information systems, scientific theories and the visual vocabulary of mass media marked by paradox and shifts between demolition and renewal, ruins and reconstruction his humor shines through. As if in his "Six Memos for the Next Millennium" Italo Calvino had forgotten to add humor.
