Robert Gligorov

Orangeface – Self Portrait – 1997

Gligorov’s work attempts to shock the viewer. Each piece tantalizes the imagination, awakening it from a state of lethargy. Confronting a society accustomed to sophisticated and extreme forms of visual communication, Gligorov amplifies the shock value of his work in order to compete with the deluge of images that cloud our visual field.

Robert Gligorov was born in Macedonia (1959), but lives and works in Milan, Italy. He is primarily known for his photographs, which have been widely exhibited in Europe. Gligorov is attuned to the idea of performance and high-impact commercial images; his photographs are always arresting, sometimes shocking, using unexpected combinations of human, animal and vegetable life to explore sexuality and identity.
