(IN)CONSTANCY OF SPACE
Collective exhibition of Dutch and Croatian artists.
The Ring Gallery
September 24 – October 12
Opening: September 24, 8 p.m.
The Ring Gallery and the Croatian Association of Artists (HDLU) have pleasure to invite you to the opening of (IN)CONSTANCY OF SPACE, a collective exhibition showing the artworks by Dutch and Croatian artists of younger and middle generation.
The exhibition will be held at the Ring Gallery, in the building owned by the Croatian Association of Artists, from the 24th September to 12th October. The Opening is on the 24th September, 2014, at 8 p.m. The exhibition will be officially opened by Her Excellency Ellen Berends, ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Croatia.
The exhibition shows the artworks by Dutch and Croatian visual artists who express themselves in the media of video, video-installations, ambiental installations, animations, strip cartoon, graphic arts, painting and drawings.
The Netherlands and Croatia are two countries with different historical, cultural and geographical determinants, but at the same time they are the members of the EU and thus make an interesting complementary duo.
The exhibition (IN)CONSTANCY OF SPACE focuses on the way contemporary Dutch and Croatian artists deal with architecture and the spaces it shapes. In their works of art, buildings are not only attractive themes, but they carry various symbolic, sociological, psychological or ideological connotations. The exhibition also touches on the issue of the position of architecture and its spaces in the mind of modern man.
The exhibition puts the artworks into 4 categories:
Life, Power and Death
On the Boundary between Utopia, Fantasy and Dystopia
Claustrophobia and Phases
Visions and Boundaries
The following artists will present their artworks in the exhibition: Shigeo Arikawa, Anke van den Berg, Tanja Deman, Darko Fritz, Arend Groosman, Tea Hatadi, Willem van der Hofstede, Lilian Kreutzberger, Margareta Lekić, Gabriel Lester, Maja Marković, Ferenc Molnar, Zoltan Novak, Vedran Perkov, Sara Rajaei, Ana Sladetić, Rik Smits, Robert Šimrak, Goran Škofić, Rob Voerman and Danijel Žeželj.
Curators and authors of the concept: Vanja Babić & Neva Lukić .
The exhibition is accompanied by a lavishly produced catalog with the curators’ texts and the photographs of artworks.
The exhibition has been kindly supported by funding from the Ministry of Culture of The Republic of Croatia, City Office for Education, Culture and Sports Zagreb, Netherlands Embassy in Zagreb and Stroom Den Haag.
