The works were created in the period of the last year, during which Mihajlović created in the studio of the Balkan Cinema. The opening hours are from 6 pm to 8 pm, respecting all epidemiological measures, and will culminate with a live performance at 7:30 pm, when the author will convey a "provocative" message to the visitors of the exhibition.

As for the works that will be presented at the exhibition, street art artist and architect Nikola Mihajlović says:
"Architectural thinking and approach to certain issues have left a strong influence on my work, which can be seen through the use of universal mathematical relations, geometry, lines." the influence of spontaneous and untamed energy of nature and emotion. It can be said that the relationship between these contrasts is the main path I take in my work. "

Ksenija Samardzija, curator of the exhibition and director of the Foundation Sasha Marceta, about forthcoming exhibitions and cooperation with Nikola Mihajlovic says, "Transmutation is the title of the exhibition that accompanies the formation of work during the period of the last year and from which part of the image is emerging in the cinema Balkan , in a kind an improvised atelier of a historic building that retains an attic and a wooden roof structure. With the transfer of Cinema Balkan as a working space, the desired situation was achieved for the Balkans to change, adapt and open. With the need to define itself as a modern cultural center, and in that sense the cooperation of the Sašo Marčet and Nikola Mihajlović Foundation is developing through an organized, well-thought-out and systematic position of support ”.

Stevan Vukovic, a member of the Sasa Marcheta Foundation's program council, writes in a publication dedicated to the exhibition, among other things: "Nikola Mihajlovic Korija's works examine the modalities of cooperation of colored shapes and lines, focusing on the plastic values ​​expressed through these cooperations. they act on the observer, without relying on the evocation of previously seen painting patterns, nor on analogies with established examples of work in that field. They are focused on the aesthetic experience of the observer, with the aim of evoking new modalities of affectivity and offering specific ways of feeling reality, which separate a specific moment from the continuity of time, while the baggage of everyday thoughts, worries and preoccupations is set aside, at least for a moment, to sink into relationships. the basic elements of artistic expression, which are thus also the only contents shown in these paintings ”.
