Exhibition: Sonja Jankov

Sonja Jankov
PM Gallery
June 9 – 18, 2017

Sonja Jankov’s solo exhibition DOCUMENTATION OF A CITY will be open on Friday, June 9, 2017 in the PM Gallery of the Home of the Croatian Association of Artists.

Sonja will present to the Croatian audience the selection of photographs from three recent series of photographs that focus on architecture in three coastal cities in Croatia: Rijeka (European Capital of Culture 2020), Split and Ubli (also called Uble). All three segments – Photo-construction of Architecture: Rijeka, Late Modernism in Split and Terra nUBLLIus – are deprived of any dynamics and people, using the minimalist approach. Here, the buildings are seen as objects in the process of archiving and the sky is used as the background for photographed objects. The frames document the surrounding of industrial heritage (Rijeka), buildings designed by the most eminent Yugoslav architects of the time (Split) and those built by the Italian or Yugoslav architects since 1930s (Ubli).
