Pomen II
- Milica Djordjević

Pomen is a threnody, a sigh, an evocation.The word pomen could be translated as mentionas well as remembrance, but it also represents a very old Serbian custom dedicated to death, when various rituals used to be performed and traditional songs devoted to the deceased were sung in a very special manner: extremely expressive and powerful, though not grandiloquent.

Every phrase is like a verse after which you lose your breath, like a microcosmos with its own story (but also a part of a bigger totality), like a sigh or, even better, a moan. 

The work was commissioned by the Hepner Foundation and it is dedicated to the memory of Leo Hepner.
