Unfamiliar Area | Domen Dimovski: The Road to Justice

27 June 2021 > 27 July 2021


The frozen clip from the animation The Road to Justice represents a demonic figure of the king, inspired by Lorenzetti's fresco Allegory of Bad Government, which personifies the situation of the horribly unknown. The feverish fusion and relocation of the artistic is condensed into the visual metaphor of politico-global melting of nature, politics, and experience itself, in which the sublimity of hellish metamorphosis is being revealed.

The times we live in are full of social frictions, excessive disagreements between governments, and intolerance among people. There are many organizations, groups, and individuals who strive on a daily basis to improve, educate, and change the almost painful circumstances of existence. Still, it may not be that easy to change or transform them. The author Domen Dimovski stages the hellish side of transformation, the sublimity of metamorphosis (Michael Taussig), the definition of which is the feeling of the positive with the negative, horror in change, devilish power, and mighty nature that can destroy us at any time. Perhaps changes are not without pain, passage through hell, and imminent destruction of the nature and individual.
