PM Gallery

MOHA IN TRITON solo exhibition of Helena Klakočar opens on Wednesday, September 12, 2018 at 8pm at the PM Gallery of the Home of the Croatian Association of Artists.

Helena Klakočar’s graphic novels are primarily based on honesty, warmth, intellectual wisdom and social engagement for a better and fairer world. At the same time, she is unobtrusive: she does not boast with images or words. Her works are intellectual and lyrical and engagement is woven into a poetic and humane reflection of the world, on the brink between a contemporary fairy tale and harsh existential reality.

Her latest project, MEDITERRANEAN WALL, is characterized by a simple and unpretentious empathy, poetry and humanity that cut right to the heart of the matter.

If there is anyone who should speak on behalf of people forced by war from their centuries-old homes it is Helena Klakočar and her contemporary style, expressed in a warm and humane manner through the new and growing avant-garde medium of diary-like graphic novel.

Her well-balanced style and texts that go beyond doctrines and politicking are positioned in a true area of artistic creativity, expressed in a mass, widely popular, read and watched picture book medium.

Text author: MSc Branka Hlevnjak, Art Historian

The project “BŠ – 72 Andrija Mohorovičić“, within which the graphic novel MEDITERRANEAN WALL was created, was funded by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia.
