Perceptions: The Beauty of a Flower is in the Picking is a new art project in the Museum of Contemporary Art of the Republic of Srpska, which continues an exceptionally successful collaboration with the British Council. Perceptions primarily points out the correlating artistic practices of women artists living and working in different geographical, social, cultural, and economic contexts. The aspect they noticeably differ in, however, is their distinct viewpoints, as well as their peculiar attitudes, conditioned by their relative contexts. Exhibition curator Lana Pilipović divided the exhibition into four conceptual segments: exhibition consists of four conceptually separate sections, titled Reflection, Exposure, Gendered Bodies, and Spirit.
