The artist Andrea Palašti presented her project Home Workouts at the Spot and VN galleries. Part of the project was realized in cooperation with students of Art Academy in Novi Sad.

Home workouts is a work in progress, and it consist of different single workouts, which are conceived as communication exercises and workout routines that can be easily achieved with minimal equipment, time and/or effort and that can be performed with or without family members at home or from home. The workout routines are mostly directed, and are investigating a particular phenomenon within a family’s everyday. They represent a humorous exploratory analysis of issues of history, identity, gender, economics and/or politics. Home workouts employ collaborations and curatorial impulses into the project – for instance, commission, gathering and displaying the work of others. Home workouts were created in response to previously directed short-term tasks, which than proliferated to works that were already realized in the past that transcribed vital processes in the interaction between the free and controlled everyday. Therefore, Home workouts reveal how social and cultural developments and political ideologies affect the construction of the everyday.

Andrea Palasti is a visual artist based in Novi Sad, Serbia. She works across artistic and curatorial boundaries experimenting with archives, methodologies and contextual aspects of art, concentrating on issues of cultural geography, history and everyday life.
