2009 Duchamp’s Witnesses Duchampovi svjedoci

Milijana Babić graduated as a sculptor from the Durban Institute of Technology in South Africa and holds an MA from the Academy of Visual Arts in Ljubljana. She has presented her work around South Africa and Europe.
The performance Duchamp’s Witnesses uses a form of preaching practiced by the Jehova’s Witnesses, which is characterized by an aggressive approach towards reaching the goal of  initiating a wide number of believers throughout the world. Duchamp’s Witnesses, on the other hand, believe in contemporary art, which began with Marcel Duchamp. His words are spread by paired up Duchamp’s Witnesses who approach individuals in the street  armed with publications and brochures on contemporary arts which are given away in an attempt to acquaint others with their religion, promoting the main message: “Wake up!”

Milijana Babić, iz Rijeke, završila je kiparstvo na Durban Institute of Technology u Durbanu, Južnoafrička Republika, a magistrirala na ALU u Ljubljani te je vanjska suradnica na Katedri za kiparstvo na APURI. Radove izlaže od studentskih dana u nacionalnim i međunarodnim galerijama te u sklopu brojnih manifestacija  (NSA Gallery, Durban Art Gallery, Bat Centre, Grahamstown Art Festival, Nonsense, Galerija O.K., Festivala Mesto žensk, Ljubljana; Centraal Museum, Utrecht; Rohkunstbau Castle, Berlin; Association of Visual Arts, Cape Town; Trouble Festival, Brussels; Galleria Communale d’Arte Conteporanea, Monfalcone), a 2005. radovi su joj predstavljeni na izložbi Nova Riječka Scena u riječkom MMSU-u.
U performansu Duchampovi svjedoci autorica se koristi formom propovijedanja Jehovinih svjedoka, kojoj je svojstven agresivan pristup u pokušaju pridobivanja što većeg broja vjernika u svoju svijetom raširenu sektu. No, Duchampovi svjedoci vjeruju u suvremenu umjetnost, čiji je stvoritelj  Marcel Duchamp, a njegovu riječ šire u paru prilazeći pojedincima, naoružani publikacijama iz suvremene umjetnosti, i brošurama koje dijele kako bi upoznali druge sa svojom vjerom, prenoseći im osnovnu poruku: ‘Probudite se!’.
