Bio-Dante Buu

(Rožaje, Montenegro)

Rooted in intimacy, his work addresses the brutal sociocultural environment and omnipresent alienation in society through a variety of media. Gender roles, identities, sex and stereotypes set by the mechanisms of power are questioned and deconstructed to express intimate quests of resistance and subversion, and how they extend from the private to public and beyond. What is ostensibly beautiful, joyous and accessible is stripped down in Dante Buu’s work to expose its flipside, so he can examine its implications and how they affect us both individually and collectively. Recent exhibitions include: Solo Show, Gallery Duplex100m2 (Sarajevo, 2017); You or Me?
