INTERVIEW N°6 April 27, 2015
Sholim for Student Film Festival Zagreb  (Serbo-Croatian language)


THE HUFFINGTON POST March 5, 2015

Absurde Gegensätze in unserer Gesellschaft: Armut und Hyperkonsum  (German language)   

Wir sind uns nicht sicher, ob die Welt in der Vergangenheit sozialer oder moralischer war, aber wir empfinden es so als ob die Zukunft nirgends hinführt. Und wir wissen, dass die Kunst schon immer versucht hat den Moment einzufangen, die Gesellschaft zu analysieren und die Kluft zwischen Vergangenheit und Zukunft zu reflektieren.
Dieses Gefühl verstärkt sich mit den animierten Kunstwerken von Milos Rajkovic, alias Sholim.

Turning Online Animations Into High Art

Milos Rajkovic, a.k.a. Sholim, whose GIFs feel like a Max Ernst collage crossed with one of Terry Gilliam's animations from Monty Python's Flying Circus. In Manager, most of a man's head has been replaced by a birdcage lined with money; in the middle of a cage, a tiny brain runs on a hamster wheel. In Skinner Box Head, holes in a man's face reveal that he's a machine—and in the center of the head, where the brain ought to be, a chicken pecks repeatedly at part of the mechanism. Sholim loves to open people's skulls to reveal contraptions as complicated as any Rube Goldberg cartoon, but while the typical Goldberg machine is a ridiculously elaborate means to accomplish a simple goal, Sholim's creations spin purposelessly forever.

The "Freaky GIF Head" Guy One- UPS His Freaky Craft


The work of Serbian artist, Milos "Sholim" Rajkovic, was once described as "Freaky GIFs You Will Never Forget," and we might have to agree. His work looks like a mad scientist's twist on Magritte's The Son Of Man, as politicians, corporate workaholics, and models from your average infomercial get their faces removed and replaced with a spotlight on their inner gears and levers (literally, gears and levers replace bones and veins). While the GIFs were clever (and maybe a little unsettling), the artist has one-upped himself, as his work has been cleaned, polished, and enhanced with an audio element.

Check These Heads

The “animated collages” of Milos “Sholim” Rajkovic's are amazing. And props to iO9 for the best headline of the week: “Animated portraits of surreal cyborgs are whimsical nightmare fuel.” That covers it.

Les GIFs de Milos Rajkovic aka Sholim

Le GIF est un format dont la logique industrielle aurait voulu qu'il disparaisse avec les progrès de l'informatique. Il a au contraire été récupéré par la communauté artistique numérique pour devenir un des formats créatifs les plus emblématiques du web.
