˝ … The works of Slavica Marin are direct product of her modus vivendi, they are integrated in every part of daily life and complete opposite of l’art pour l’art. When first getting acquainted with this artist’s body of work, we cannot help feeling that just about everything she creates is a direct product of life preoccupations, thoughts, commitments, pleasures, needs, and of everything else she deals with on a daily basis. She converts every action into an artistic act and gives a potential artistic value to each object, and when we encounter this phenomenon it seems to us that it should be like this always and everywhere, hoping “those days” are still to come and wishing for Slavica Marin to be one of pioneers and messengers of an emerging era.
