With "Plutati u vremenu, na zemlji", the distinctive urban poetic of Sergej Vutuc shifts to natural treasures affected by humankind: Patagonian glaciers become the unspoken landscape of an apocalyptic romance of commercialized destruction and about the concept of time. Swimming in time is a passage into a creative and oneiric narrative, but is also a lucid consideration of the inexorability of time flowing and of its consequences - appropriation of common goods, climate catastrophes and consumerism blend with the lyricism of fading memories and romantic idealizations.

This dualistic abstraction is reflected also in the medium itself. On the one hand, the pages’ surfaces, textures and consistence suggest a dream-like and melting vaporosity, where light grey and blue on black paper enhance the lunar atmosphere of an ungraspable subject shimmering in the dark. On the other hand, the work’s composition plays with interferences, manipulations and layering of different media (notably, super 8 film and 35mm film processed in darkroom) that, freezing the moment at multiple levels, suggest ironically the hidden complexity of this fiction.
