Sanja Latinović – Abandonded, 2019

<p>In <em>Abandoned</em>, the artist aggressively fills her mouth with sugar cubes obsessively uttering the sentence “I am abandoned.” Like most of her work, this video is characterized by an unpretentious reduced visual performance in which Latinović, starting from the personal, in this case personal experience living in Belgrade, points to the many problems an individual faces within a harsh capitalist society.
