On time and space constraints
Mirjana Farkas questions the constraints of illustration, grouping them under the broad categories of Time and Space. Time that is gained and lost, dreamt of or successfully spared. The time it takes to create a book and the time given by the commissioner. The space of the imaginary museum in the mind, that of meetings and collaborations. But also the creative activities’ physical space, be it the studio or the medium. Farkas discusses her practice through the prism of these various ways of apprehending the constraints of illustration, which are also opportunities.
