Petrova Gora I, 2015

 

In 2015, in collaboration with parkour athletes from Serbia and Croatia, Andy Day explored Tito-era monuments across former Yugoslavia. Day has created a limited edition print series, especially for Edgework, of some the photographs he took during this trip.

 

Day discusses the monuments: ‘Their status - both physical and otherwise - is varied, inconsistent, and contradictory. They are in part lost, forgotten, remembered, celebrated, ignored, treasured, neglected, abused and maintained; they are monuments to an imaginary future that never manifested and memorials to a cause that either no longer exists or sits uneasily within the minds of a population still subject to the endless complexities of competing nationalities, ethnicities, religions and political affiliations.’

 

Day continues, ‘Our explorations and resultant images fail to convey these complexities. And just as photographs fail the monuments, the monuments themselves – like all monuments – fail history, beautifully inadequate and riddled with inconsistencies. As with photographs, they are mnemonics that are unable to address the multiplicity of narratives that led to their construction. Furthermore, these architectural impositions were an attempt to create power over a present by exerting a vision of a proposed future – a vision that was fractured and unrealistic from its outset, and a future that never manifested.’

 

Petrova Gora I is part of a series of works including Tjentiste, Ulcinj, The Church at Ostra and Sanski Most I
