Noor Blazekovic
Noor Blazekovic is the curator and publisher at IRREVERSIBLE PROJECTS - EXHIBITIONS - THE MAGAZINE
"Irreversible - an International art project - is a pioneering exhibition platform for all projects that transcend the classical art show including small format, large scale installations, theatrical events, mixed media, video projections, massive sculptures, music, live performances & unlimited kids programs." IRREVERSIBLE makes buying and collecting art accessible and affordable. Many of our artists have succeeded outside of the traditional gallery system, emerging through all backgrounds we deal with cutting-edge art, and we are viewed as one of the most influential exhibition platform of our era. Irreversible projects and magazine have become breeding grounds for cutting edge exhibitions. Our versatility provides a platform for emerging artists, giving them the opportunity to showcase their talent, as well as offering more established artists the freedom to play and produce experimental exhibitions.

"Giants in the City" is a monumental inflatable public art show series and traveling exhibition committed to attract national and international cultural exchanges "Art in public places is not about us, but about others. Does not reveal personal inclinations, or talk about the myth of the artist, instead reveals its civic sense. Does not it intend for people to feel diminished and insignificant, but to glorify them. It’s not about the existing emptiness between culture and the public, but seeks that art becomes public and that the artist becomes a citizen…


Jon Glaser (Artist Statement)
Photography was originally considered a way to objectively represent
reality, completely untouched by the photographer’s perspective. However,
photographers manipulate their pictures in various ways, from choosing what to
shoot to altering the resulting image through computer digitalization. The
manipulation inherent to photography brings to light questions about the nature of
truth. All art forms manipulate reality in order to reveal truths not apparent to the
uncritical eye. Photography today is largely seen as a postmodern art form, and
postmodernism states that truths do not necessarily last, but instead truths alter
and shift with changes in culture. Modernism, however, states that some truths
do last, and these truths reflect basic, universal conditions of humanity. These
lasting truths are often expressed in mythic themes and archetypes. Science,
journalism and art make use of the connection between myth and truth, most
notably, in the mythic archetype of form: beauty. Scientific, news, artistic and
documentary photography all use the archetype of beauty as a connection to
truth. Beauty, however, is based on the beliefs of a culture, and does not
necessarily define truth. In the end, both postmodernism and modernism have
their place in photographic philosophy. Understanding of photographic truth, like
all other truths, depends on an understanding of culture, belief, history, and the
universal aspects of human nature.
