Exhibition Spaces between land, water and sky, by Silvia Maria Grossmann will open on Thursday, August 3 at 8pm at the Bačva Gallery in the Home of Croatian Fine Artists / Meštrović Pavilion. Exhibition opening will be accompanied by concert performance at 9pm with Reinhard Süss (composer and E-Piano), Tanja Süss (cello) and Theresa Hajni (clarinet) and reading from Wolfgang Bleier in Club HDLU.

(…) In her work, Silvia Maria Grossmann describes real landscapes in which land and sea meet, where rivers flow into seas and oceans. But she also deals with the cultural spaces where the Alpine and the Mediterranean meet. All these landscapes represent borderline worlds. The living beings found in such places represent not only the connection between different elements, but also between symbolic forms. In these borderline spaces the transformation from the non-manifested to the manifested takes place, from chaos to cosmos. It is here where the ray of creation travels from minerals through plants and animals to man, elementary beings and angels. (…)

(…) The site-specific installation Spaces between Land, Water and Sky (2017) has been created by Silvia Maria Grossmann, guided and inspired by the Bačva Gallery. The gallery’s circular space (a rotunda designed by Ivan Meštrović) influenced how the installation was set up, and also provided a perfect response to the artist’s poetry. In her installation, Grossmann examines the symbolism of fabled rivers, but also to the relationship between the wind, sea and light. (…)
