BURN OUT

“Maja Rakočević-Cvijanov, herself involved in the world of office workers, speaks about their lives at work in a very authentic manner. Well-known to her are burn-out syndrome, long eight hours spent at the workplace and the potential futility of the work carried out… From the position of the artist, Rakočević-Cvijanov observes her (working) environment and recognizes certain behaviours that become almost legitimate, wherever and whenever, thus creating a “world of office workers.” Her works insightfully, sometimes humorously, but primarily in an empathic way embody all of those listed syndromes and present to us the office worker as a figure whom we sympathize with, aware of the fact that the gravity of the shackles of routines and patterns are the daily burden of these people.”
