WHANAU
Karas Gallery
February 5 –February 17 , 2019

Opening of the exhibition: Tuesday, February 5 at 7 pm at the Karas Gallery

Exhibition Whanau, by Petar Vranjković, will be opened on Tuesday, February 5 at 7 pm at the Karas Gallery (Zvonimirova 58).

“On yellowed black and white photography, scratched at places, we see a young man and a girl. The young man is hugging a girl with one hand, holding hers with both hands. They both look at the camera. He is smiling, and she is serious, with relentless look pointed straight into the camera. Click. The moment passed. (…)

Part of the family history that physically emerges from the private sphere is actually hidden. What the author, however, reveals through his work is his own emotional relationship to the heritage he found. The photos that were previously in the boxes are carefully placed in the frames, and their transformation from just being seen to becoming a part of the emotional intergenerational exchange ends with the transfer of the three selected scenes from the photo to the unbleached linen in lithography. By juxtaposing an old piece of cloth found in his grandmother’s home to the wedding photography of his grandparents, it is like he adds himself to this photo and gives honor to those whose experiences have shaped him.”
