Stamps Professor Endi Poskovic present a solo exhibition of new works titled Crossing at Adrian College’s Valade Gallery.
Crossing underscores a personal tale of discovery. In 2010, Poskovic returned for the first time to his family ancestral birthplace in Southeastern Herzegovina (Bosnia and Herzegovina in the former Yugoslavia). The trip afforded him an encounter with familiar communities and a way of life untouched by time yet devastated by conflict and violent demographic shifts. Crossing attempts to reflect, albeit allegorically, on this experience. Transcending sculpting, drawing, printmaking and animation, Crossing explores the nature of composite narrative, in which visual signifiers, both real and invented, intersect to form imagery suggestive of dichotomies, proposing themes of displacement, transformation and revival.
