Monument

[en] After three-year break from creating paintings inspired by the music, I come back to this muse again. New painting that I present to you is inspired by the hypnotizing song of the Norwegian duo Röyksopp and Swedish singer Robyn. Both the music and lyrics were crucial, but in the transmission of feelings the video played a role too.
The painting explores the space that becomes actual after the death of a man – is it the physical position of the carcass in a “pit” or symbolic floating in the vastness of the universe? The painting tries to encourage the observer to ask questions that he will have to answer himself: What do I leave behind? In which space will this legacy reside? Just as a monument on my own grave? As a memory in the minds and hearts of those who knew and loved me? As a footnote in administrative records? Or as a complete memory in the collective consciousness of the universe?
See the painting in better resolution, details of the picture, lyrics, and music video below in the post.

[hr] Nakon tri godine pauziranja od stvaranja slika inspiriranih glazbom, ponovo sam se vratio ovoj muzi. Nova slika koju predstavljam inspirirana je hipnotizirajućom pjesmom norveškog dua Röyksopp i švedske pjevačice Robyn. I glazba i stihovi su bili ključni, ali i video je odigrao ulogu u prijenosu osjećaja.
Slika propituje prostor koji se aktualizira nakon čovjekove smrti – je li to fizički položaj trupla u “jami” ili simboličko plutanje u prostranstvima svemira!? Slika nastoji potaknuti promatrača da postavi pitanja na koja će si morati sam odgovoriti: Što ostavljam iza sebe? U kojem će prostoru ta ostavština obitavati? Samo kao spomenik na vlastitom grobu? Kao sjećanje u prostorima uma i srca onih koji su me poznavali i voljeli? Kao fusnota u administrativnim zapisima? Ili kao cjelovito sjećanje utkano u kolektivnu svijest univerzuma?
Pogledajte sliku u boljoj rezoluciji, detalje sa slike, stihove, ali i glazbeni video u nastavku posta.

“Monument”

Make a space
For my body.
Dig a hole.
Push the sides apart.
This is what
I’m controlling.
It’s a moat
The inside that I carve.

This will be my monument
This will be a beacon when I’m gone
Gone, gone
When I’m gone
Gone, gone
When I’m gone

So that when the moment comes,
I can say I did it all with love
Love, love
All with love
Love, love
All with love

Make a cast
Of my body.
Pull back out,
So that I can see.
Let go of
How you knew me.
Let go of
What I used to be.

I will let this monument
Represent a moment of my life
Life, life
Of my life
Life, life
Of my life

Make a cast
Of my body.
Pull back out,
So that I can see.
Let go of
How you knew me.
Let go of
What I used to be.
