VIDEO RADOVI - VIDEO WORKS

Video "JUTRO U MOJOJ ULICI"

"THE MORNING IN MY STREET"

2005.


"Tijekom idućih šest minuta rada Mario Čaušić prikazuje tipološki slijed fotografija grafita, izloženih u strogom ritmu poput niza slajdova. Slika se izmjenjuje svakih deset sekundi, točno u trenutku kada se začuje zvuk koji potsjeća na zvuk blende robusnog foto-aparata, za koji se u končanosti nepogrešivo ispostavlja da je zvuk repetiranja oružja. Čaušić svjesno sučeljava spokojnu mirnoću jutra sa sirovim, ponekad agresivnim tekstovima. Isti su naneseni na isprane zidove kuća u susjedstvu sprejom ili kredom i to bez puno kreativnog afektiranja. Vrlo strog slijed izjava rezultira poetičnim, ali udaljavajućim učinkom. Engleski prijevodi hrvatskih tekstova brzo okončavaju poetsku senzaciju ne ostavljajući prostora dvojbi u svezi njihove namjere i podrijetla. Osim sučeljavanja postoji prostor za relativiziranje, tako da tekst „Mrzim crnce i rasiste“ u samom začetku sa sobom nosi nešto gotovo simpatično. Ipak, unutar konteksta cijelog niza nemoguće je pobjeći od njegovog deprimirajućeg smisla."

"In the six minutes that follow, Mario Causic shows us a typological series of photos of graffiti, displayed to a strict rhythm, like a series of slides. The image changes every ten seconds, exactly at the sound that initially calls to mind the shutter of a robust kind of camera, but eventually turns out unmistakably to be the loading of a gun. Causic purposefully confronts the serene tranquillity of the morning with raw, sometimes aggressive texts. Without too many creative frills, these texts were sprayed and chalked onto the washed-out walls of the houses in his surroundings. The strict succession of statements has a poetic but alienating effect. The English translations of the Croatian texts quickly put an end to the poetic sensation, leaving no room for mistakes about their intention and origin. Besides confrontation, there is also room for relativization; thus, the text "I hate niggers and racists" initially has something almost endearing. However, within the context of the entire sequence, there is no escape from its depressing significance."

UMJETNIČKA AKCIJA "JUTRO U MOJOJ ULICI"

(CITATI)

2005.


Umjetnička akcija  "Jutro u mojoj ulici" (citati), izvedena je 2005. godine u Osijeku. Bila je sastavni dio  skupne izložbe koja je bila postavljena u galeriji Kazamat. Prvi dio postava, u galeriji,  je bio video "Jutro u mojoj ulici" sa snimkama uličnih poruka napisanih na zidovima grada. Drugi dio je akcija gdje sam citate pojedinih umjetnika ispisao na metalne ploče i postavio ih na ulice grada. Interes mi je bio mjenjanje prostora i propitivanje samih institucija te sam tako u galeriju unio ulicu, a na ulicu pokušao prenijeti dijelove umjetničkih misli. Rezultat akcije je bio promptno uklanjanje ploča sa citatima kao nešto što narušava ulične vizure i postavljeno je bez odobrenja. S druge strane ulične poruke su ostale ispisane na istim mjestima na kojima su izvorno snimljene ali i u galerijskom prostoru gdje su prensesene putem video rada.

Umjetničku akciju su snimali Sanda Katavić i Dražen Budimir

BRISANJE- ERASING



















SIDE EFFECT

The work entitled Side effects is a multimedia work composed of two interconnected works created in two phases and devised for two independant gallery displays. It includes a drypoint print and a video of the work creation process at a gallery preceeding the printing process in the artist's studio.  The original part of the work was a gallery installation consisting of a metal plate 100×100cm placed on the gallery floor and the patent  composed of a heavy lath with a drypoint needle at its top attached to a chain hanging from the ceiling. It was conceptually envisaged as a multi-layered and interactive art patent being a hands-on installation which was to incite the visitors become active participants and involve in the creation of the work by moving the pendulum arbitrarily and randomly thereby scratching lines into the metal plate. This proces was partially filmed and transformed into a video. Subsequently, the outcome of the gallery hands-on-by-spectators process was made visible by traditional drypoint print on paper excluding any kind of artist's intervention on the plate. The underlying idea was to display the video and the print one by one on the occasion of a future exhibition representing  an upgrade of the first display as well as a memorandum of the pased time and its side effects.
