IVAN OŠTARČEVIĆ
IMPATIENCE (FRUSTRATION)

Karas Gallery
January 15 – January 27, 2019

Opening of the exhibition: Tuesday, January 15 at 7 pm at the Karas Gallery

Exhibition Impatience (Frustration), by Ivan Oštarčević will be opened on Tuesday, January 15 at 7 pm at the Karas Gallery (Zvonimirova 58).

“In the spirit of current pop-cultural production of unified narratives for the whole series of films that correlate through the shared universe paradigm, the author generates one of his own that critiques today’s society by anticipating the future. Impatience emerges as the final stage of creating a dialectic approach to the future world through relevant questions regarding the relationship between artist and art, artist and society, and artist and success. Through the language of installation art, Oštarčević introduces us to a complex situation of everyday life burdened with the force of fame and power. (…)

He confronts the viewer with an apparently complete whole which we are conditioned to accept without judgment, while at the same time speaking on the hermetic models of art, wishing for the arrival of a critical mass partial to exceptional, rather than mediocre cultural production. Unless everyone, from the academically-minded to the simple-minded, start demanding excellence as the next step in our valorization, art in itself is meaningless to society.”

From the preface, written by Mihaela Zajec
