EXHIBITION: ŽELJKO BELJAN – MYTH, EMBROIDERY AND VUTEKS

ŽELJKO BELJAN
MYTH, EMBROIDERY AND VUTEKS
Karas Gallery, Kralja Zvonimira 58
July 7– July 19, 2020

Following all recommendations of the National Civil Protection Headquarters, exhibition MYTH, EMBROIDERY AND VUTEKS, by Željko Beljan, will be opened on Tuesday, July 7 at 7 pm at the Karas Gallery (Kralja Zvonimira 58).

 

(…) “The embroidery motifs have been changed in Beljan’s alternate reality, they are no longer meant for idyllic kitchens or ethnographic collections in heritage museums, but for the artist’s personal ritual in which he, like a shaman, liberates his own past and changes its course. Just as Saša Božić and Petra Hrašćanec play with the choreographies of folk dance groups in the dance performance Kolo (The Circle Dance) (2019), creating an almost futuristic traditional performance, Željko Beljan also takes us to the psychedelic sky, the same one where we will share a messianic vision with pigs, dolphins, and ducks. In this sky, everything is truly possible in a simultaneous reality. ”

From the preface, written by Josip Zanki
