Perfect ride

video, color, sound, 5’ 04” looped

In the interior of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade, whose purpose was neglected for years (closed down for renovation for 5 years at the moment of making this video), a skater is trying to perform what is most important to him – a perfect ride. The atmosphere of timelessness that is dominant in the space of the “abandoned” Museum of Contemporary Art appears as the perfect scenery for an incompatible action that gives its endless reconstruction a new character. This way, the work shows the intimate and intense connection between a young man and his skills and the forgotten building of the Museum, thereby retrieving the grandeur of the building through a moment that, as the action unfolds, becomes a very important experience for the actor in the video. The work is essentially an homage to the building – a master piece of modernist architecture in Yugoslavia – which, despite all current technical shortcomings, remains monumental and incredibly powerful.

The video Perfect ride is in the Collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art Belgrade.
