Additional Information

David Maljković (born Rijeka, Croatia in 1973) is known for his distinctive films and installations exploring place and history. Using archives of modernist forms and specific avant-garde histories, Maljković's work emerges from the turbulent recent history of his home country. His expansive approach encompasses sculpture, collage, photography and film in meticulously researched projects such as Scenes for New Heritage 2004-6 (a trilogy of films), Retired Form 2008 and Images with Their Own Shadows 2008.

Maljković often shows buildings, monuments and pavilions ofthe 1960s and 1970s – architecture that reflects both the promise of a better future and, through their current ruinous condition, the melancholy of failure. Interweaving past, present and future, his work references a state of collective amnesia, avoiding nostalgiato create a radical modernist experimentalism.

Sources in the Air includes work from the last ten years. Devised as an installation that subtly disrupts the exhibition format, atmospherically and architecturally charged structures both contain and interpret Maljković's work, examining different forms of display in response to the architecture of BALTIC.
