Belgrade Mosaic Festival is
an international manifestation that aims to stress the importance of mosaic as
a contemporary visual tehnique, to show all important currents in mosaic
expression and to present the most relevant mosaics of today.
The purpose of the Festival
is to show the top range not only in the field of mosaic, but in contemporary
visual art in general.
The Festival is
inspired by Small Scale Mosaic- an annual exhibition that was inaugurated by
Petar Vujosevic, and that has been presented in Belgrade since 2006. The first
Belgrade Mosaic Festival took place in Belgrade in 2016, which marks the 10th
anniversary of the Small Scale Mosaic.
The founding principle of the
Festival is a promotion of the top achievements in mosaic expression, as oposed
to profanation and industralization of mosaic, that reduces it to plain
technology and formalism, narrowing down the very purpose of mosaic art.
Intention of Belgrade's
Festival is to point to exceptional possibilities of this tecnique. Mosaic
brings together physical materia, enchanting color of a broken stone on one side- with the invisible,
metaphysical, that springs from misterious empty space between tesserae.
A deep concentation and
long time that the making of mosaic requires, at some point becomes the way to
inner self knowledge. In this way deeper, unpainted images reveal themselves,
images that help us reveal the meaning of our own exsistence as well as an
understanding of spiritual basis of life itself.
