President Stevo Pendarovski addressed today the opening of the exhibition “The Art of Boredom”, which is set today at the residence of the Ambassador of the European Union to the Republic of North Macedonia, in Skopje.
It exhibits works by Macedonian artists of different generations, inspired by the imposed conditions related to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Thanking the EU Ambassador, David Geer, for organizing the exhibition, President Pendarovski assessed it as an original way to support and promote Macedonian artists.
“The pandemic resulted in alienation, fear, boredom, monotony, but at the same time creativity, vision, skill and will to create. It is the artists with their ideas and energy who manage to turn the pain, grief and grayness of our everyday life into beautiful works of art. I am glad that this really interesting thematic exhibition features works by different generations of Macedonian artists who worthily present the Macedonian art scene and who testify to the permanence of art, as opposed to the transience and often ephemerality of life”, President Pendarovski said.
The exhibition features works by Macedonian artists: Petar Hadzi-Boskov, Margarita Kiselicka, Saso Sazdovski, Goce Nanevski, Monika Moteska, Filip Velkovski, Jasmina Glavince, Igor Tanevski, David Atanasoski, Antonio Pirkoski and Aleksandar Eftimovski.
