Perverted Gaze video installation, colour, sound, 14'50'', Bosnia and Herzegovina, 2020. Recording, editing and sound: © Igor Bošnjak Igor Bošnjak’s video Perverted Gaze shows six border crossings  in Bosnia and Herzegovina that were filmed using a drone. This  aerial footage has been taken from various standpoints,  communicating both an up-close look and a more distant  perspective. The result generates insights into the activities at each  location, offering a view of Bosnia’s apparently untouched  mountain landscape. Yet it is not Bošnjak’s intention to create an  aesthetic; instead, he is both visualising and simulating the  process of surveilling, controlling and observing through his  artistic practice. Bošnjak uses the border crossings that arose as a  result of the Yugoslavian war, and the state monitoring that  resulted, as the occasion for carrying out forbidden monitoring.  He avails himself of drone technology to take on the role of  monitor and observe locations of government power. Bošnjak uses  this research-oriented approach to analyse sociopolitical reality in  Bosnia and Herzegovina.  This artwork is part of the ifa art collection.
