Elementary school Josif Pancic in the village of Gradac in south Serbia was founded one hundred and twenty years ago. It was a prominent local school and children would travel from a far in order to attend it.
Gradually the number of students decreased due to migration mostly and this year twelve students only remain to attend the school across eight grades.
Through performance “Twelve” Jovanovic tempts to physically capture the low number of students which will eventually bring to closing of the school unless something radically changes sooner rather then later. By drawing the outline of the shape of her feet on the ground, the artist points to the empty space on the playground in front of the school that should be teeming with pupils in action.
