Exhibition: Stjepan Šandrk – SPECTACLE

Stjepan Šandrk
Bačva Gallery, Home of Croatian Fine Artists,
Trg žrtava fašizma 16, Zagreb
July 19 – July 30 2017.

Exhibition opening: Wednesday, July 19, 2017 at 8pm

The exhibition Spectacle by Stjepan Šandrk will open on Wednesday, July 19, at 8pm at the Bačva Gallery, Home of Croatian Fine Artists in Zagreb.

The Spectacle is a solo exhibition of large format paintings. New approach to images, for the first time, assumes that the image functions as a construction. Though they are created in a way that mimics the photograph, they no longer have documentary character (not even staged), but become a complex scene created by digital manipulation that is later translated into the media of painting. We can say that this is a conscious falsification of the reality that simultaneously exists as a product of that same reality.

“A group of Canadian tourists who are shooting selfie, as well as the North Koreans on the excursion, I’ve appropriated somewhere in the Wasteland Of The Internet,” says Stjepan. “Their appearance, in this environment, is completely unacceptable to me, but at the same time it helps me to make the way we see culture within the post-industrial era visible.”
