TEN YEARS LATER
March 1 – 12, 2017
Ivica Malčić’s solo exhibition – TEN YEARS LATER will be open on Wednesday, 1 March 2017 at 19.30 h in the PM Gallery of the Home of the Croatian Association of Artists.
The exhibition “Ten Years Later“ is a continuation of the artist’s concept of having an exhibition in the same gallery every ten years, which started with the exhibitions in the VN Gallery (1994, 2004 and 2014). The exhibition in 2014 was named “Ten Years After“, and the one to be opened in the PM Gallery is named “Ten Years Later”. Exhibition names are taken from Alvin Lee’s English rock bands, as homage to the artist’s youth.
Malčić began the series of exhibitions in the PM Gallery in 2007 by exhibiting 365 diary drawings from 2006 named “Vincent Kick a Hole in the Sky“.
Ten years later he repeated the same process by exhibiting 366 diary drawings from 2016, one for each day of the year (this time 366 drawings because 2016 was a leap year). The difference between these exhibitions lies in the artist’s choice of media and formats. The drawings from ten years ago were made in various formats, using different techniques and types of paper, whereas the works from 2016 were created on A4 “bankpost“ paper.
The drawings reflect Malčić’s daily priorities, directly related to his creative activities, such as the experience of painting a painting followed by diary drawings of this activity in the evening.
If the immediate painting activity would not happen on a certain day, the artist would create a daily drawing depicting situations from his personal life, inspired by popular culture, everyday life or the problems of an artist’s existence. In Malčić’s drawings, intimate and private intertwine with the media and social and translate into artistic and symbolic.
All the drawing are dated and numbered and will be exhibited in a chronological order in a circular gallery space.
The exhibition was financially supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia and the City Office for Culture, Education and Sport Zagreb.
