Smuggler's self portrait

Smuggler's self portrait

2008
specific project for Matthew Broussard's Pocket Gallery
dimensions / 3,5 x 5,2 cm

“In the globalized world, what does it mean to be a smuggler? That probably depends on the priorities of who’s answering the question. Davor Sanvincenti has created a series of nesting dolls in this exhibition: creating a (priceless) work of art which was then transported across the international borders between Croatia, Slovenia and Italy. The entire journey was documented, including the respective encounters with customs officials or border patrols, with the intent of exhibit the documentation in the Pocket Gallery: a Dadaist operation which was intended to focus upon issues of borders, the value of art, globalization, etc..
But of all the material produced during the smuggler’s journey, those which spoke most exactly to the sentiments of someone on the other side of the border – or someone who was about to cross it – were the original photographs. They are classic images: carefully composed black and white landscapes; dignified and melancholy. This is one aspect of globalization which is less spectacular, but by no means less essential.." - Matthew Broussard
