Milan Milojevic: Room of Wonders - Art Collector

Nocturne, 2017 Digital print 130 x 59cm.

A room of wonders is a series of prints comprising of imaginary flora and fauna based on the Jorge Luis Borges book titled The Book of Imaginary Beings, published in 1967, which has been a catalyst for his work over the past two decades exploring contemporary cultural identity and the complexities of a cross-cultural position.

The imagery is informed and inspired by the aesthetics and visual language developed by16th, 17th,18th and 19th century engravers and naturalist artists. The intention is to generate a sense of wonder and curiosity, yet this wonder is accompanied by the uneasy knowledge that the world created is a dystopian one.
