Dimitrijevic, Smithson and Magritte

Posted in Research, Texts by chrisfremantle on May 30, 2006

At the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art last winter I saw a room of photography that SNGMA had recently purchased. This included a group of six photographs by Braco Dimitrijevic entitled This could be a place of historical importance (I have not been able to find images of this work online). For me this work clearly links with Robert Smithson’s Visit the Monuments of Passaic New Jersey. Talking to our friend Gail about this she made the link with Magritte’s Ce n’est pas une pipe. So what is the link between these artists in the early 70s and surrealism?
