Milijana Babić and Ana Ajduković: 3rd Shift: The Whole Circle of an Artistic Process

The co-authors of the 3rd Shift, an art project presented as a magazine and a billboard, will talk about their experiences within the project from its conception to its realisation, starting from their specific collaboration where theoretical and artistic viewpoints intersected. During a six-months field research, conducted in authentic places for the production of the ''desired'' female look, they gained deeper insight into what was their theoretical starting point: that working on your appearance also represents labour. Apart from the very ambient of ''beauty salons'' where women read glossy magazines while waiting for their treatments, the collected material also directed the work towards a specific intervention in a women's magazine, returning to salons in the artistic form. On the other hand, the collaboration with a woman's magazine disclosed its complex relations to the topic of the artwork. Finally, there was a project within the project, since the artist took over the role of the model for the publication (Gloria Glam insert), receiving many comments related to the transformation of her looks.
