The last Youth Day

Installation, 2011

The unederstanding of phenomenon of the Youth Day baton chaged completely in the past few decades from the time when it was established. The former symbol of unity and youth has transformed into the symbol of disintegration, destruction and the death of the youth. The construction of the relay baton is made of grimy black racks and wire with flame and a vast cloud of smoke which is a direct association to the destruction in the disintegration of Yugoslavia. It represents the baton which conveys the message about the events from the 1990s. The last day of the youth is both the name and a message of the last relay baton that symbolises the end of one state and its epoch.
