Porto Montenegro and Belgrade-based M2C event management agency present the underwater exhibition by Montenegrin artist Luka Radojević. The exhibition has been set in the Tivat aquatorium, just off the island of Our Lady of Mercy. It has been realized due to cooperation between Porto Montenegro Company and M2C.
The concept of the sculptures for the underwater exhibition deals with time, as an abstract phenomenon in civilizational change.
The exhibition is dedicated to ancient sculpture, which is dominated by male and female torso inspired by ancient Greece and Rome. They also have implemented abstract elements reminiscent of the civilization of ancient Egypt in their geometric form and colour, as has been announced from Porto Montenegro.
“The ancient Greeks and later Rome paid great attention to the creation of portraits, male and female torso, and the idealization of the human body, and in fact, through modelling, brought it three-dimensionally closer to divine ideal proportions.
The best examples of ancient Greek sculpture have been preserved precisely thanks to the sea, as they were found at archeological sites at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea on ships that sank in ancient times, thus preserving important sculptures from that time. The bottom of the sea has kept the mystical secret of masterpieces for thousands of years. It is with the display of sculptures at the bottom of the sea that I, as an artist, wish to revive the mystical ancient times and to see our future through a vision of the past”, emphasizes artist Luka Radojević.
The exhibition will be staged until August 18th and can be enjoyed by all who come with diving equipment to Our Lady of Grace. Over 200 guests of Porto Montenegro and Regent Hotel, as well as the players of recently organized polo tournament in Tivat nautical resort, and many others, have been delighted with this extraordinary setting, it has been pointed out from Porto Montenegro.
