In her nocturnal
photographs Natasa Radovic tries to capture the light that escapes to
the perception of the human eye and picks only those sequences or fragments
of action that can be helped by the memory and by the experience in
creating a rational immage in our mind. By using the long exposure,
the artist succeeds to fix the changes of the light that designs one
new truth, or better, renders real objects invisible. She explores the
relationships between light and shadow, and forces her viewer to question
the visible and invisibile, static and dynamic, fullness and emptyness
of the space. Natasa Radovic photographs persons on whom she applies
luminous sources that describe floating motions of illuminated boats
or automobiles that were travelling in the night in order to testify
the continuity of the light in space. In other cases, she captures the
moment of the rising sun or the sunset - the encounter between night
and day - in order to emphasize the relationship between empty and full.
Those changes are stopped in the moment when the light hits the rough,
rusted or reflective surfaces, thus changing the way of their existence.
This technique makes the subject lose its ordinary function in order
to make the object one of an aesthetic experience.
