Nothing Will Surprise You Here

 

Artist : Velibor Božović

Authors : France Choinière, Gwynne Fulton

Graphisme : Studio TagTeam

With Nothing Will Surprise You Here, Velibor Božović has succeeded in infusing a dose of truth which surpasses our desire to cling to reality and facts, letting us be carried along by the self-evidence of events. Nothing surprises us here, but everything eludes us, as if aspirated by that truth held in shadow, so intrinsic that it is only revealed in the abstraction of the unspoken. We might see here an attempt to legitimate fiction as a means of attesting to history, but also a manifestation of the ascendance of the map over the territory.

The present publication is a constituent part of Velibor Božović’s exhibition project Nothing Will Surprise You Here, developed in collaboration with Dazibao.
