- KOVACEVSKA Verica, I Must Be, 2003 (video)
Verica Kovacevska was born in 1982 in Skopje and studied in UK. She is known for live performances in which she directly integrates the audience and surroundings. In ‘‘Walking Project’’ (since 2006), she candily approaches passers-by, and in ‘‘Everyday Art, the Art of the Everyday’’ (2005-2006), she hands out postcards establishing contact between the artist, exhibition location and visitors. The second project took one year to finish and climaxed in an exhibition of 365 artifacts in the Museum of Contemporary Art in Skopje.
I Must Be is a video in four parts and is based on obsessive behaviour similar to that Marina Abramovic’s Art must be beautiful, Artist must be beautiful (1975). Each part was filmed in one take with no extra editing and documents the inconsequential rituals of life.
