For Fallen from Grace, Pajdic collaborates with Paris-based taxidermist Mathieu Miljavac. To get a sense of what to expect, just take a look at this video introduction:

Pajdic organises high profile art projects internationally. He also writes and lectures on contemporary art and culture. Pajdic holds an MA in History of Art from the Courtauld Institute of Art, and a BA in Fashion Design from Central St Martins. His works have shown in more than 200 international exhibitions, including Victoria & Albert Museum London, The National Academy of Sciences Washington DC, Exit Art New York, Selfridges London, Museum of Contemporary Art Belgrade and Boimans Van Beuningen Museum Rotterdam.

Through taxidermy, Mathieu Miljavac seeks to question man’s relationship with everyday and ordinary animals, such as city pigeons and mice. His approach avoids naturalistic representation of his subjects, and focuses instead on creating narrative power. For many years, Miljavac worked in the fashion industry, as a designer, and in the specialist area of ennoblissement (an ornamentation discipline in couture) making pieces for clients including Christian Dior, Givenchy, and Valentino. He also spent five years working on conceptual floral design for clients including George V Hotel in Paris.

At the opening, there will be a special live performance of The Myth Of Yearning Never Ends created by Predrag Pajdic with Anthony Thévenoux. Learn more about Fallen from Grace, Risen from Man at the Wrong Weather website.
