In his latest group of works “Sideratio”, RADENKO MILAK tackles the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. He has filtered out motifs from the relentless flood of digitised information, from countless press reports and photos – all of which illustrate the global state of shock following the outbreak of the global epidemic. Using black pigment, he has transformed these snapshots into small-scale watercolours. The images show the life of a society – right down to its most intimate elements – that has been turned on its head: abandoned cityscapes, churches and holy sites devoid of people, hospitals and mortuaries, closed cultural sites, airports and railway stations that have been brought to a standstill. RADENKO MILAK’s watercolours seek to document and organise the global catastrophe in aesthetic terms.
