Milutin Gubash

Milutin Gubash’s approach encompasses photography, video and performance. He employs honest and untouched visuals that are often comical by means of their mannerisms. Humor is omnipresent in his work, linking the intimacy of his own existence through the systematic mise en scène of his family and close friends. Starting from real stories, the artist creates his own fictitious scenarios that grapple with notions of identity, memory, intimacy and daily life. His art challenges social roles and representations of domestic life conflict against notions of what is “real”. In order to achieve these goals, the artist often conducts precise investigations such as with Re-enacting Tragedies While My Parents Look On, of which a snapshot was chosen for Plan Large in 2003.
