Placed between the friction of two reprehensible and distructive powers, a moraly grey individual finds a way to destroy both sides. The protagonist exterminates this bilateral structure by manipulating the environment. This is the political vision that Japanese director Akira Kurosawa imagined in the film Yojimbo in 1961, and soon after into the Sanjuro 1963. 

Remade is a solo show exhibition by Mensur Bojda. His core concept for the show is a continuation of his investigations from a previous group exhibition, Let me go Father. His recent works explore the transference of ideas between originals and remakes. How does history change the contex of certain images? What ends up persisting in the newer version, and how do these elements hint at the essence of the original.

Mensur Bojda's engagement with this theme results in creating two- sided surface separated by complementary colors and placing a figure with an imbalanced tendency to disrupt both sides of a ditych or triptych. Bojda constructs works influenced by Noir Classics, Kurosawa's movies and the recent Western remakes
