    Información

    It is in the meticulously crafted films of Damir O?ko (1977) that the worlds of contemporary art and contemporary classical music come together. Using music and sound (or indeed significant periods of silence) to drive forward a mysterious narrative, O?ko’s works frequently have the impact of a short-form avant-garde chamber opera. It’s an approach best illustrated by the fifteen-minute Boy with the Magic Horn (2007), in which characters with angular, sci-fi headgear wander the abandoned corridors of Zagreb’s never-finished University Hospital, as if taking part in some mystical Arthurian quest. The utopian-dystopian theme is revisited in The Age of Happiness (2009), a film inspired by Russian composer Scriabin’s intention to write a piece of music that would lead its audience to a higher state of being. In O?ko’s version, the celebrants congregate in a yurt-like chamber filled with futuristic instruments. O?ko explored the role of silence with The Moon Shall Never Take My Voice (2010), in which three songs performed through sign language; while We Saw Nothing but the Uniform Blue of the Sky (2012) features a stammering man making a supreme effort to recite an epic poem. At O?ko’s recent exhibition at Paris’s Palais de Tokyo, films were accompanied by the complex diagrammatic charts that he uses as their scores, works that in themselves resemble beautiful and mysteriously alchemic artefacts.
