"In the interior of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade, which purpose was neglected for years (closed down for renovation for 5 years now), a skater is trying to perform what is most important for him – the perfect ride. The atmosphere of timelessness that is dominant in the space of the “abandoned” Museum of Contemporary Art appeared perfect as the scenery for a incompatible action that gave its endless reconstruction new character. In this way, I wanted to show the intimate and intense moments of connection between a young man and his skills to the forgotten building of the Museum and thereby retrieve the grandeur and importance of this building through a moment that, as the action unfolds, becomes a very important experience for young actor in the video. This video is essentially a kind of homage to the building – the master piece of modernistic architecture in Yugoslavia – that, despite all current technological shortcomings, remains a monumental and incredibly powerful."
