Descending of these powers is accompanied by prodigious sounds created in the atmosphere. The first contact of each power with the ground of our planet is strong and creates an earthquake which is rapidly converted into the most magnificent melody that spreads all over the planet. Then it can be said that the life of that power on Earth began. The powers are there for the whole human race, and they are in the center of Belgrade at the exhibition called ELEVEN POWERS.
Meet the powers
1. Chiron IDENTITY
Chiron is the main character in the Barry Jenkins’ movie Moonlight. He is a boy who, with all his strength, became bigger than the greatest problems he had lived in. He became the happiest man! I presented him in a special and sensitive moment in which he examines his identity. Chiron represents the strengths of all the identities we carry in ourselves and those most sensitive parts of beings who are so vulnerable, and from which our greatest strength is actually derived. Chiron came to tell us that.
2. Gabriel CREATION
Gabriel’s joy brings us to the game. Joy and play are announcements that something new will be created, something the world has not seen yet. Novelties arouse new joy, which again moves us on new creations.
Thank you, Gabriel!
3. Ivona COMPASSION
I look at you with your eyes. I feel you with your heart. You are me. I am you. You look at me with my eyes. You feel me with my heart. We are all one.
4. Lazar CHANGE
Lazar is a boxer who dances in the rhythm of the whole world, he dances lithely through time. At every new moment, there is a newmovement and the new Lazar. He changes himself in the changing world. He dances with the changes.
That’s why he feels good.
5. Srki PERSISTENCE
“My greatest strength is persistence,” says Srki. Srki is my Aikido teacher. Srki is a child of the Sava river. Tugboats sailing on the Sava river carry his name, Persistence I and Persistence II. I’m also a child of the Sava river. That’s why Srki is my brother. The Sava teaches us to be persistent as the flowing water.
A one-way stream allows enormous numbers of particles to inform while moving, i.e. informing and transmitting information where they are needed. In the process of moving and informing the particles they gain great power which they use for their further movement. That’s how it works. Persistence is needed in life missions and long-term goals. Persistence leads us to fulfill our mission. Thank you, Persistence! Thank you, Srki, my teacher!
6. Pal WORK
Pal built the half of Senta. Pal also built his own house. He learned to build himself. He also taught others how to build. Pal created everything with his work!
7. Tasja JOY
Happiness is beautiful, gentle, wise, well organized. Happiness is a friend. Happiness is pleasant and smiling. Happiness is my greatest joy in life. Happiness listens to music, loves cheerful music from the radio. Happiness loves love. Happiness loves home. Happiness works for itself. Happiness does not leave itself to coincidence. Happiness is very well organized, organized by Happiness.
8. Verona GENTLENESS
Gentleness says, “I did not even know how to wear a hat.” Gentleness, tenderness, kindness, understanding ... originate from the innocence and purity of the soul, originate and they are transmitted on with a smile to the whole world.
9. Ranko MIND
The mind is clear. Ranko’s mind is the Universe. Ranko’s mind works with lights that radiate an endless number of colors. The colors in the light combine each other and create new spectra. Ranko opens photon packages and with his hans spreads his spectrum across our celestial sphere and over intelligence of the planet Earth. Ranko showed me how to do it. He is now showing everyone how their mind functions.
10. Orlando REALIZATION
Orlando is the main character in a movie called Orlando, directed by Sally Potter, based on Virginia Woolf’s novel, starring Tilda Swinton as Orlando, who I painted as the tenth power. Orlando is a prince. Orlando is a princess. Orlando realizes himself as a prince. Orlando realizes himself as a princess. Orlando does it bravely and easily.
11. Ksenija Lea LOVE
Love smells a rose. Love gently walks over the petals. Love is alive. Her name is Love.
LOVE IS FAITH.
Ksenija Lea says: “Love for everybody in all directions.” Love is Faith. Love is Peace. Love means being present here now forever and everywhere. Love created us. Long live Love!
