Joint project with HA (Sasho Talevski)

In 2004 OPA was nominated for the Denes award given to the most successful young Macedonian artist. The winner is being chosen on a group competitive exhibition. Thus OPA invited their collaborator HA (Sasho Talevski) to create work according to the criteria of the Macedonian art critique and sensibility and with potentially wining qualities. For that reason notary warranty was made stating that in case of wining the award, he (Sasho) could utilize it, take advantage of it or alienate it, sell it or donate it. As an answer, an extremely shallow and low quality work was created which brought Sasho the award: five weeks residency stay at The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) in New York.

In addition OPA&HA asked Denes board for answers why the work Window to the world was awarded.
