The exhibition and book are titled after an eponymous cycle of work and emphasizes the artist’s two creative poles, the writer and the painter. Sava Sekulić (1902–1989) created thousands of poems, drawings and plays. He learned to read and write as well as to paint and draw himself. Sekulić emphasized this identity as an autodidact in his signature CCC. In the Cyrillic alphabet, it stands for the first letters of his first and last name as well for ‘samouk’ meaning ‘autodidact.’
