Imagine seeing the world for the first time. An unknown feeling. Imagine an unknown word, form, voice, imagine the unknown, the unknown, the unknown. I dream of a pleasant ride through an unseen landscape in my soul rover with colourful seats. Fingers protruding from the steering wheel gently caress and massage me. Pass through my hair. Touch the cracks. Thousands of tiny massage bubbles gently vibrate and rub soft oils into my skin. My mind cannot focus, feelings penetrate my body, I dive into the energy pool. The border of my skin no longer exists. I am everything.


This work is part of the series THIS IS HOW WE HIKE RAINBOWS premiered as a multimedia installation and performance at the 36th Youth Salon (Meštrović Pavillion, Zagreb) curated by KUĆĆA in 2022. The work received the exhibition's first prize: the ERSTE Grand Prix.


Andrej Beštak and Anja Leko are an artist duo from Zagreb, Croatia. They consider themselves spatial storytellers: with the interplay of image and sound, through installation, performance, and video they create an emotional dialog between the artwork and the audience. They tell stories that unfold from our contemporary experience in which urban mythologies, spiritual experiences, and club culture merge with individualism, materialism, and global capitalism. They like to take paths that are light, goofy, and sometimes cartoony to tell stories that they find serious and heavy to digest.
