Mutable Images, Shifting Vision features lenticular and traditional prints and videos by Serbian artist Čedomir Vasić. Using well-known history paintings as points of departure, the artist uses photo-editing software to remove all figures from the depicted events. Devoid of human content, Vasić’s doctored images are stripped of their intended meaning and significance; only decorative and deceptively simple interiors or landscapes remain.

Vasić combines the altered and the original image files using a lenticular printing process; when viewed from different angles, the visuals appear to chnge, rendering images that are simultaneously present and absent.
