Art News’ critic Peter Clothier couldn’t have expressed it better: Aleksandar Antonijevic exhibit inFORMants “reveal to us, at first sight, the breathtaking beauty of the human form in its perfection; and the dramatic beauty of its ability to reach the absolute limits of its potential.”

Born in Pozarevac, Yugoslavia in 1969, Aleksandar Antonijevic  was trained in classical ballet at the National Ballet School in Novi Sad and joined The National Ballet of Canada in 1991, where he has been a Principal Dancer since 1995. An accomplished international guest artist, Antonijevic has performed with the English National Ballet, Inoue Ballet Japan, Ballet Santiago and PACT Ballet South Africa.

Antonijevic has extended his love of dancing from the stage to the camera, implementing the same principles of form and space into his passion behind the lens.

inFORMants features a collection of 19 colour prints, each a limited edition of five and all of his subjects happen to be National Ballet of Canada dancers. “Having been a live performer for almost 25 years, I understand the notion of being always on display, facing a precipice and the darkness that lies ahead. The loudness of silence can be deafening when one is documenting the naked human form,” said Aleksandar Antonijevic.

The exhibit runs May 2nd to 30th, 2013, as part of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival at the Berenson Fine Art Gallery. Tuesdays through Saturdays from 12:00 pm – 6:00 pm.
