Imagine the most amazing location for an artistic experience?
Porto Montenegro and M2Communications have created a unique exhibition under the sea. By engaging world-renowned visual artist Luka Radojevic, visitors were given an opportunity to dive into the secrets of ancient times.
This collection of sculptures called ''Time'' reflects human needs, aspirations, fears, expectations, hopes - pointing to the development path of human civilization from ancient times to the present. In his underwater setting, Luka paid particular attention to the most powerful monumental creations of the human hand, whose creation is an eternal civilization secret, and in the spirit of ancient Greece and Rome, presented humanoid sculptures of male and female torsos, which best idealize the proportions of the human body.
The delight began from the moment of leaving the coast by speedboat, with the guide presenting the motives and ideas that preceded this experimental concept. Trained divers have guided visitors to the bottom of the Tivat Bay and enabled them to open their senses to centuries of change in human civilization and evolution.
For us, implementing and monitoring the project was as much of a challenge as just enjoying this original art, which gives a whole new perspective on the notion of artistic space. All the exhibits were made of wood and, in order to protect them, they were coated with an eco-emulsion made of natural materials.
The operation of transporting and placing the figures five to twelve feet deep was a special adventure. Underwater video production has allowed these scenes to be captured as they deserve and realistically portray the beauty that comes from the blend of nature and art.
The first underwater exhibition lasted from 1 to 16 August.
