Charlama Gallery + depotography

September 2, 2013


charlama depot

Shameless SEO bait. I noticed that one of the most common google searches leading to my blog are for an alternative contemporary art space in Sarajevo, Charlama Depot, which I wrote about in a March post. It’s not funded and thus rarely open, so the photos I have of Charlama are precious to me. The gallery is Jusuf Hadžifezović’s experiment in depotography, ludic found object installations. Guerilla scene. Rebel trinkets. Salvation of cast-off objects from the so-called dustbin of history. Costume jewellery universe. Lions’ arena of living art. I could quote Jusuf all day! (True story: my co-host in my Bosnian tv talk show days, Boris Siber, is a founding member of Charlama. Next time I’ll share photos and stories from the time that Jusuf brought Charlama to Studio A.)

Across the hallway there is a dadaist public restroom. Of course.

    The photos of the gallery feel so special. Each space is so unique… and colorful! So many designs and patterns. I feel like each photo has it’s own little story.
