In 1999 NATO forces bombed Belgrade, the capital of Yugoslavia. The burning city was abandoned by those who had means. My grandmother and me (I was 11) remained as we had nowhere to go. Alone on the empty street, surrounded by the fire of war, I felt that death is seconds away. I closed my eyes and hugged my grandmother. With all the tragedy happening around us, I felt (and still feel) that this is one of the most beautiful moments of my life. When fires and chaos of time and violent change were all around, I felt timeless, like people on ancient icons. The death was all around, but my heart was at peace.

The painting is dedicated to the memory of children, who died during the NATO bombing raids of Serbia in 1999. “Merciful Angel” was an incorrect translation of the NATO’s code name for 1999 bombings (in English it was called a “Noble Anvil”).

One war-related impression that stuck with me forever was the experience of colors of the burning city. Yet it was more than coloristic change: I wanted to depict a shift from the ordinary into the new, never seen before territory. The well-understood city was experienced in an entirely different way.

The impossibility of breaking air symbolizes the permanence of our perception. Yet the fact that our perception is permanent does not necessarily mean that it is correct. In a uniquely dramatic moment, the air can be broken and the mythical dimension that runs our lives comes to the foreground.

This was my art performance piece during my studies at Central Saint Martins in London.
As a war victim, my message was to show what humankind can produce and destroy in one day by first producing this work and afterwards repainting it white.
