Dario Šolman's The Heart of Perspective, The Making of the Film is an ongoing project begun in 2001 that consists of studies and tests for a film that will never be made. Šolman has stated, "When we use the word 'film,' we think of a possible film, a hypothetic interplay of image, sound and text. To avoid further confusion, we should think of it as film without a film. In other words, a film space that is not contained in a film shell." Instead, Šolman uses the terms Cinemation or Secondary-Cinema to refer to his practice. He allows the evidences of the film - the tests, the texts, and the research - to define what this non-existent film is or can be.

Šolman employs a "block man" as an actor or proxy in his project. This protagonist can be both an empty vessel into which we may project ourselves or others, or a perfected, Platonic being that no one can be. This character is pathetic, searching, worshiped, and enigmatic. The Gallery of Contemporary Art will be exhibiting Šolman's drawings, storyboards, and animation tests that orbit around The Heart of Perspective, the Making of the Film.

Šolman is a Croatian living and working in New York. His work has been exhibited at The Drawing Center, New York; 20th Slavonia Bienalle, Galerija umjetnina, Osijek, Croatia; Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Rijeka, Croatia; House of Croatian Artists (HDLU), Zagreb, Croatia; Gallery MC / The Doors Art Foundation, New York; Merano Arte edificio Cassa di Risparmio, Merano, Italy; Liquidacion Total, Madrid, Spain; Swiss Institute-Contemporary Art, New York; P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, New York; Centre Place, Melbourne, Australia; Space Lab, Cleveland; and Alexandria Biennale, Alexandria, Egypt. He has also participated in the prestigious Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Residency, Workspace: The Woolworth Building Studios, New York; the P.S.1 Studio Program, New York; and the residency at the Cimelice Castle, Czech Republic.
