A visual journey of stories long-forgotten
Speculative Scenography: Implicit Monuments, by Doctoral Candidate Nevena Mrdjenovic, is a photographic exhibition that aims to show the fragility of life through the fragility of ordinary buildings. Displaying photos from war-torn regions in Yugoslavia and Serbia, the exhibition strives to share memories left behind in the shattered buildings and homes of civilians, a side to war that often gets overlooked in post-war stories.

Upon examining each photo, it becomes clear that the shattered buildings and homes paint a portrait of the lives and identities affected by the numerous conflicts. As Nevena is currently working on her PHd thesis, 'Politics of Space; Scenographic strategies in tracing post-war identity', these photos aim at showing that spaces that appear to be empty, are in truth teeming with memories and forgotten stories.

In this photo series, Nevena uses a broad range of images, focusing on architecture, personal space, and forgotten history, all of which intertwine to demonstrate her message. Through the juxtaposition of light and dark features, a sense of sadness and regret is conveyed.

The photographs will be on display from 25 June to 5 July at the NG Pop Up Gallery in Chippendale. With free entry, the exhibition is definitely worth seeing, particularly for avid fans of history or photography.
