Perfect for lovers of visual art and music alike, Mausoleum of Imperfection is a collection of picturesque and satirical portraits made by the artist and famous Balkan pop-culturalist Slavko Krunic that refute the idea of separation between the observer and the work of art. This book creates a certain intimacy between reader and image: we feel we are the portraits’ companions, and they are our fellow travelers in an imaginary life. The comical fantasy of these melancholy characters watching us from the pages allows us to listen to their life stories while observing them in their immobility. Bill Gould, the bassist from the American rock band Faith No More, provides a short biography of an imaginary witness inspired by Krunic’s work. The unusual combination of different artistic expressions results in the masterful symbiosis of art and music that is Mausoleum of Imperfection.
