Mickeys Opera, 2006
Installation view

Here we have all Mickey’s family and friends, his mother, his father, his sister, his brother, his grandmother, his grandfather, his cousin, his aunt, his uncle, his sweetheart, his neighbour, his lost friend.
They are all singing “Where is Mickey” over and over again, they are all looking for Mickey, and they all miss Mickey.

Maybe it is Mickey Mouse, the little smart guy who beats all the big bad guys, maybe it’s the good American who saved the world from fascism during the Second World War, and generously helped the world after, so we now for good and bad are a part of the global village, but in this globalized world where all the big guys and all the big money makes us all become the same, the same cars, same food, same movies, same Coca-Cola, same shoes, same ideals, we need Mickey to fight back so we at the same time can work together and be different, unity through diversity.

But maybe we all are looking for Mickey, maybe we all are looking for the meaning of life, love and death, we try to buy the meaning through bigger and bigger cars, but what we need is to find Mickey inside ourselves.

So “Where is Mickey.”

Mikijeva opera, 2006.
Postavka

Tu je cela Mikijeva porodica i prijatelji, njegova majka, njegova sestra, njegov brat, njegova baba, njegov deda, njegov brat od tetke, njegova ujna, njegova devojka, njegov komšija, njegov izgubljeni prijatelj.

Svi oni pevaju “Gde je Miki” stalno ispočetka, svi traže Mikija, i svima im Miki nedostaje.

Možda je to Miki Maus, onaj sitni pametni momak koji pobeđuje sve velike loše momke, možda je to onaj dobri Amerikanac koji je spasio svet od fašizma u Drugom svetskom ratu i velikodušno pomagao svetu posle rata, pa smo sada deo globalnog sela, u dobru i u zlu, ali u tom globalizovanom svetu u kome nas svi ti veliki momci i sav taj veliki novac teraju da postanemo isti; ista kola, ista hrana, isti filmovi, ista koka-kola, iste cipele, iste ideje, Miki nam treba da bismo uzvratili udarac, pa da budemo u stanju da radimo zajedno, a budemo različiti, ostvarimo jedinstvo kroz različitost.

Ali možda svi mi tražimo Mikija. Možda svi tražimo smisao života, ljubavi i smrti, pokušavamo da kupimo taj smisao preko sve većih i većih automobila, ali ono što nam je potrebno jeste da pronađemo Mikija u sebi.

Dakle, “Gde je Miki?”
