Republika Srpska President Zeljka Cvijanovic opened an international exhibition titled “Perceptions: The unpicked flower is the most beautiful one” on Thursday evening at the Republika Srpska Museum of Contemporary Arts.
Cvijanovic said that this is a great project.
“It is a big deal that we have here so many artists from Great Britain and from our parts who through their artistic expressions send certain messages. The exhibition is being held on the eve of March 8 and we thus want to stimulate joint activities and cooperation,” Cvijanovic told reporters.
She stressed that this is an excellent way of cooperation which can be realized in various ways and through artistic expression.
“I am happy that Banjaluka is home to such a great event,” Cvijanovic said.
The director of the Republika Srpska Museum of Contemporary Arts, Sarita Vujkovic, said that a woman is in the focus of the exhibition.
“We had the honor to exhibit our 12 works. These are authors who are equal to those in Great Britain,” Vujkovic said.
The Ambassador of Great Britain to BiH, Matthew Field, says that good tradition of cooperation between the British Council and the Republika Srpska Museum of Contemporary Arts continues.
“Great Britain is a partner to BiH and strongly supports its prosperity,” Field said.
The custodian of the exhibition, Lana Pilipovic, says that she divided the exhibition into four segments: “Reflection,” “Exposure,” “Gender Bodies,” and “Spirit”.
“These segments are designed to reflect the dialogue of artists, similarities and differences of artistic concepts, diversity of women’s expression – from intimate, personal positions to perception of a society in which they live, and their mutual relations,” Pilipovic said.
