Yane Calovski

Yane Calovski,born 1973, Skopje, Macedonia. Calovski is interested in reactivating, rather then fictionalizing, certain existing narratives that may, as active memories, become “reactive” imagination, or rather, evocations that generate imagination. The subjects of his latest research are the missing archive of the Kenzo Tange’s city plan for Skopje and the unrealized proposal by Oskar Hansen for the museum of modern art (also in Skopje). And, while the idea of time as “the last philosophical resort worth a metaphor” remains, he is interested in making sense without subjecting the narrative result to a conclusion. In Calovski's work, time as metaphor, becomes just as important as the fact of its inconclusiveness found in the logic of a linear narrativ.
