Stamps Professor Endi Poskovic presents Call me Ishmael: Endi Poskovic New Works, a solo exhibition at Gallery 72 (1806 Vinton St, Omaha, Nebraska), on view through December 1, 2018.
Through his creative practice, Poskovic seeks to construct representations which suggest broader themes of displacement, exile, memory, and reconciliation. Poskovic’s new work, the eloquently disquieting Crossing Series and Dream Series, are avatars of his ongoing explorations between the analog and digital realms, which converge according to pillars of the printed image: multiplicity, seriality, and translation. Reflecting on a way of life unaffected by temporality yet devastated by violent events in the country of his birth, Poskovic’s Crossing Series and Dream Series serve as an allegory, penetrating into the idea of reconstructive and reflective ‘nostalgia,’ dissecting the themes of exile, diaspora, cultural memory, and national identity. Poskovic was a Bemis Center Artist-in-Residence in Omaha during 2004 and 2007.
