With the new series of photographs entitled Recreation (Rekreacija), Uroš Abram remains within the sphere of figural representation. The same dedication to representing the body could be found in an earlier series, Made in Me, whose many exhibitions have raised the artist’s public profile. Also, in the series Recreation, Abram – a graduate in photography of FAMU College of Fine Arts in Prague – intervenes in the search for boundaries and unconventional ways of presenting photographic discourse. Allusions to aesthetic and creative representations ofnudes in static or dynamic balance are shown from a dominant anthropocentric perspective and, perhaps, even inthe very title, but the photographer experiments with changing the proportions of the viewing angle of fragments of the body, and by creating suggestive sets to represent the body in different ways, and opening it up until what remains is a mere metaphor. Isolated individual photos of disproportionate and disembodied body parts could remind us of the scientific interest in Renaissance-era discoveries of magic beings, and could be characterized ashisperic art, but the symmetrically constructed images work as a newly created and aesthetically synchronisedreality, where a careful and studious consistency in the contrasting play of light and shadow affects the visualsphere, while the exposed knowledge of the métier and sharp framework form the photographer’s digital signature.
