Opening of the exhibition: Tuesday, May 8 at 7pm at the Karas Gallery

Exhibition Do Not Touch Works of Art, by Branko Lepen will be opened on Tuesday, May 8 at 7pm at the Karas Gallery (Zvonimirova 58).

“In his series of sculptures Do Not Touch Works of Art (Ne dirajte umjetnička djela). Lepen is engaged in a process of working on the form; this is an extremely rigorous process in all its stages, from the initial idea to the final realization, implemented with the maximum responsibility towards each, event a seemingly small procedure. He establishes the relationships arising from the character and function of the constructive material itself. Here, the sculptor relies on the experience of compressed form as a heritage of modernist reduction, and draws on the principal conciseness of constructive minimalism. (…)

These silent and restrained works are ripe fruits of an interesting sculptural thought and thinking, fruits grown from the artist’s hands, achievements that carry within themselves and preserve the warmth of the touch of those hands, that posses something intimate, close, distinctly individual. What is immanent to these constructs is the awareness that an artwork should be something special and individual, unique and responsible to itself alone, something that primarily meets and satisfies the artists needs.”
