Miloš Tomić

Miloš Tomić is a multimedia artist whose projects span film, photography, collages and sculpture.

Tomić studied directing and then animation – experiences that continue to influence his practice. His subjects are either comprised of or preoccupied with disposable or disposed objects. In fact, his doctoral thesis was titled “Preciousness of discarded objects, i.e. trash as the material for film, photography…” His object-based works are modified quotidian objects, like shoes sewn shut or brushes with thorns instead of bristles. Tomić also has a category of sculpture called “Pearls” which, as he describes, are “to be understood as things that are precious, wrongly forgotten or lost somewhere, but now found.” Over last 20 years, as an independent filmmaker with various others obsessions: music improvisations, collecting abandon objects, writhing, traveling, he has collaborated with many other filmmakers, visual artist, musicians as well, as with people from margins of society. He showed his work in many festivals and exhibition. In 2013, as he said “by chance”, was Serbian representative at Bienalle in Venice. Everyday experiences and small, unnoticed things in daily life expressed in video diary form is his recent activity, as well as following inner obsessions in form of stop motion short films. He travels cities with workshops that he leads in playful way.
