A forthcoming exhibition at Five Years entitled ‘These New Zines!/Ovi Novi Zinovi! With Love from Belgrade’ presents the work of PGDip Design for Visual Communication graduate Renée O’Drobinak and her creative partner Ana Čavić, aka Ladies of the Press*.
Previewing on Friday 21 March and open Saturdays and Sundays 1-6pm until 30 March, the exhibition collates zines curated by the London-based performance and print duo during a live event in Belgrade which formed part of Renee’s diploma assessment.
The 2013 Belgrade show ‘These New Zines!/Ovi Novi Zinovi!’ saw Ladies of the Press* collaborate with five contemporary artists and artist groups based in Serbia’s capital in a five-day event based on the idea of ‘making a scene’ together, documented in an on-the-spot zine.
The show consisted of a rolling programme of events and performances from the urban DJ and VJ duo ShrinkFM and flowpro, video art by Miloš Tomić, old-school zine making with a twist from artist group Undergrad, a performance mixing dance and theory by Aneta Stojnić, Ljiljana Tasić and Dušan Broćić and a fashion design and performance art fusion by Katarina Popović and Aleksandra Lalić set to the sounds of DJ Dekadentna Kod Kuće.
Now the exhibition at Five Years re-stages and brings together a selection of work from the show’s archives, as well as a perfect-bound compendium of all the zines created throughout the five days showcasing the collaborating artists. The result is an illuminating and eclectic snapshot of Belgrade’s urban contemporary art scene.
