The friendship between Sandro Đukić and Tomislav Gotovac aka Antonio Lauer (an important figure in the development of the artistic avant-garde in Europe during the 1960s and 1970s) began in Zagreb in the mid 1980s. The two artists of different ages, but identical mindsets and worldviews soon became part of the same art scene and exhibited together several times. Starting from the idea of making a total portrait of his friend, Đukić created a photo session which turned into Gotovac's performance. In Radnička Gallery Đukić confronted a set of uncompromising portraits of the aged Gotovac with traditional female nudes. This concept evoked Gotovac strategy to chalenge the cult of beauty and a male's gaze by parodying them.
