In his second exhibition at Gaep, Damir Očko continues to requestion political implications and codes of social control, while re-articulating them through forms of violence, fragility and resistance. The title Pear Fate Meter – an anagram of the title of Očko’s first exhibition with the gallery, Repeat After Me – is the artist’s essential gesture for understanding the key premises of the exhibition. This is reflected through two main elements, videos and works on paper, which define Očko’s dedicated and tireless agency that discloses how violence is inscribed in our daily routine and how this affects the artist’s perception on the notion of freedom.
