Die Schöpfung als „ironischer Akt“: in ihrer künstlerischen Transformation biblischer Zitate setzt sich Milena Jovicevic mit der menschlichen Existenz auseinander, in der sich alle Dimensionen modernen und archaischen Ausdrucks zu einem ewigen Kreislauf verbinden.

THROUGH A MODERN APPROACH OF "LOADING" MILENA JOVICEVIC TRANSFORMS THE BIBLICAL SAYING: THEN THEIR EYES WERE OPENED, AND THEY BOTH REALIZED THAT THEY WERE NAKED. THEY SEWED FIG LEAVES TOGETHER AND MADE CLOTHES FOR THEMSELVES.(BIBLE, GENESIS 3.7) AND POINTS OUT THROUGH ALL DIMENSIONS OF HUMAN EXISTENCE AND LEVELS OF FUNCTIONING (EMOTIONAL, INTELLECTUAL AND INTUITIVE) THE CIRCULARITY OF CREATION AND THE END. THE CONNECTION OF MODERN AND PRIMEVAL EXPRESSION HERE REFERS TO THE CREATION AS AN ACT OF IRONY, THE IRONY OF THE DEVELOPMENT PATH IN VARIOUSLY EXPRESSED PAIN SENSITIVITY. BIBLICAL THEME OF GENESIS IS FOLLOWED BY A CONTINUOUS CUT OF ADAM'S RIBS, THE IRONY OF HIS "OMNIPOTENCE", A DESIRE THAT HE`D BE GRANTED THE PAIN OF CREATING AND EVE, AND ANOTHER WOMAN, A DOG AND... THE APPEARANCE OF BLOOD WOULD HAVE TO REFER US TO THE BIBLICAL IDEA THAT THE BLOOD IS SOUL, DETRACTING OF IT - OBLATION, AND THE VERDICT IS PUBLIC HUMAN BRANDING. (MILOS KNEZEVIC)
