OPIS DELA
We Did This and That is a series of 43 photographs and 13 videos, which show Nika Oblak & Primož Novak in reconstructing Guinness World Records. They chose absurd records, which are based on uncommon ideas. It is a strategy of gaining attention with spectacular and entertaining stunts, which can serve as an analogue to obsession with success and fame in contemporary society influenced by the mass media. We Did This and That is a reflection on global capitalism and society, which produces and possesses an excess of everything, as it can be seen in MTV series Jackass and Wildboyz.
