Majda Vidakovic’s gaze is always focused on objects and spaces. Sometimes she photographs objects as she finds them, such as discarded household goods, broken building materials or architectural details. Often she arranges the objects again, in order to photograph them or to incorporate them into an installation. In this way she shifts through a self-created playing field between photography, design, sculptures and props, always looking for the relationship between three-dimensional objects and their two-dimensional representation. The past plays an important role in this. “What do we leave behind? The concept of leftovers has always fascinated me. I’m intrigued by traces of what’s left behind; a material or a place, affected by nature or human usage” says Vidakovic, always inspired by the beauty of imperfection. The objects chosen symbolize the past that is rediscovered by the artist and given a second chance.'
