A possible landscape (Split version), 2018 offers, as in a diagram, a different approach on the landscape around us. The words and the different descriptions distributed throughout the Museum’s atrium put the emphasis on the invisible and changing aspects of reality. They can refer to the air components, polluting materials, meteorological and atmospheric conditions, colors, birds and many other elements, sometimes even negatives, that we cannot see. But, that does not mean that they are not around and that they don’t influence us. The visual arts consider the sense of sight as the most important. This work tries to acknowledge importance of the other senses enabling us to perceive reality in its total complexity.
