THE NECESSARY TIME: a photographic exhibition by LJUBODRAG ANDRIC

There is beauty in these surfaces, their color and texture, but they are not pristine. There are cracks in the façade. A rough surface is adjacent to a smooth one. There are innumerable stains, and areas where paint has been applied, and where it is peeling. All of these details underscore time’s indifference, as well as convey the beauty of the ordinary. The associations with abstract painting can be comforting, but I feel there is far more to these works than that narrow condition of aesthetic appreciation. (John Yau)

Ljubodrag Andric was born in Belgrade, Yugoslavia on July 21, 1965; his father was a writer and playwright and his mother an actress. His involvement with photography started at age 15. He studied literature at the University of Belgrade before dedicating himself to photography entirely. He moved permanently to Rome in 1986. Since 2002 he has resided in Toronto. He is a citizen of both Italy and Canada. Following recent exhibitions in San Francisco and Toronto, this year Andric’s work was presented in an exhibition at the Triennale 2016 as well as at the Bocconi University Art Gallery, Milan, Italy. More recently a large exhibition of Andric’s was presented at the Fondazione Querini Stampalia in Venice, Italy – curated by Francesca Valente and installed by architect Tobia Scarpa. Among other initiatives, a large exhibition of Andric’s work will be opening at the Musée des beaux-arts in Le Locle, Switzerland in February 2017.
