Biography

David Maljkovic’s films, collages, sculpture, and installations address the historical, cultural, and ideological heritage of modernist projects in Croatia. In a 2010 exhibition, “Recalling Frames,” Maljkovic’s photomontages combined still images from Orson Welles' film The Trial, a haunting damnation of inhuman bureaucracy shot in Zagreb in 1962, with the artist's own contemporary photographs of the filming locations. Maljkovic meticulously photographed Zagreb's Cold War-era Modernist buildings from the same extreme angles used in the film. Splicing together black-and-white negatives, the works form a sort of compression of decades of political and urban change.
