Milutin Gubash & le désir d'extimité : sa vie, son œuvre

Abstract : Milutin Gubash is a Serbian and Canadian artist. He lives and works in Montreal (Quebec) since 2005, and was born in 1969 in Novi Sad, in ex-Yugoslavia. He leaves this country, which does not exist anymore, at the age of three years old to settle in Calgary, Alberta (Canada), under the choice of his father.
After going to the University, Milutin Gubash establishes his own artistic practice in 2002 using as photography as video, as well as performance. His art focuses on identity research, which reflects his own life and experience of a political immigrant. Gubash makes his own personal investigations the starting point of his artistic production, questioning this way the boundaries in-between private and public.
Artist-author and actor of his life and works (performances, videos, and photos) the artist use his own person as well as his family as characters into his stories. Then, the specificity of Milutin Gubash work is the exhibition of his private and intimate life into his art.
"Extimacy" is a psychoanalyst term that defines the human tendency to exhibit our intimacy in front of public audience. Serge Tisseron, a French psychoanalyst reuses this concept in 2001 and refines the original Lacanian definition. "Extimacy" came out into the contemporary art during our last decade through narrative and autobiographical practices, and serves here as an opening to Milutin Gubash oeuvre
