………Group project 7/8DAYS exploring the identity of the Mediterranean space, was recently held in Split – Dalmatia – Mediterranean
It was a call for CREATIVITY. “Express yourself through the photo self-portrait and the statement.”
The concept of the project/exhibition «7/8DAYS» implies as «co-authors» the participants, expressing themselves in the creative-sensual way by making their self-portrait (or the series of them), and by the statement expressing their stand in regard of the changes that could creatively affect and change their living environment and the surroundings. The self-portrait and the statement are complementary, and were printed together on the photo prints for the exhibition.
It’s work in progresss – first bit 5-14th May 2015 >>Galerija Umjetnina, MKC and other locations Split aria

ABOUT THE AUTHORS: The project is actually a Group project:
Since portraits are actually at least co-created by those who would make self-portraits and tell their story, the project is actually a group one and everybody participating would be named as an author.
The initial concept made by Ibrahim Spahić. The project, the tool itself, and the aesthetics developed by Bojan Brecelj.
