Boundless = a sense of being without constraint
Miroslav Pavlovic produces visual concrete objects, in some instances they are formatted as paintings, in some of a sculpture, or installations, but they always stick to the frame of a peculiar system of investigating the basic elements of the visual language, by experimenting with means of material construction of the work.
Their intended references are just other formal experiments with visual language. Social contexts, and narratives which cross the borders of the artworld were systematically erased from the display, leaving the whole domain of signification to implications which are produced in the domain of the theory of forms by the manipulation of plastic structures in the controlled realm of the particular work.
His visual concrete objects do not represent, they simply exist: Their existence in a non-representational sphere is maintained by the constant work of negativity, by which the will of the author claims to produce a field of action independent of the actual social constraints.
Therefore the exhibition is titled as Boundless = a sense of being without constraint.
