'Book of Chains' was made as a piece of my cycle entitled 'The Weight of Chains', first presented on a solo show at the Kolarac Gallery, Belgrade. The introductory text for the exhibition catalogue outlines its major artistic intention:
THE WEIGHT OF CHAINS
Djordje Aralica once again presents his small sculptural narratives, this time embodied in rich texture of chains defying their own weight. Instead of gravitation which rules over his medium, and in accordance with his rhetoric of monumentalizing ephemeral visual experiences, he offers us to perceive the lightness of objects chained only by the artist’s eye.
