DOMAGOJ BURILOVIĆ: TERRAFORMING

DOMAGOJ BURILOVIĆ
TERRAFORMING
Karas Gallery, Kralja Zvonimira 58
October 22 – November 3, 2020

Following all recommendations of the National Civil Protection Headquarters, exhibition TERRAFORMING, by Domagoj Burilović, will be opened on Thursday, October 22 at 7 pm at the Karas Gallery (Kralja Zvonimira 58).

Terraforming is the hypothetical process of modifying a celestial body to make it as similar to the Earth as possible. In the 14 photographs of Slavonia, taken by Domagoj Burilović and exhibited in his solo exhibition at the Karas Gallery, mystical landscapes and alien, deserted lands emerge before us. They show something else as well, certainly something visible, but also something invisible: something like a trace. (Wittgenstein). Life has dematerialized before our eyes, but it has left invisible traces that make us or at least should make us question the real existential problems, the problem of the survival of an entire region. Golden Slavonia, the belly of Croatia, a historically rich region to which the people from other parts of Croatia used to move, leaving the sea view behind in search of fertile soil. The region that meets all the preconditions to become the richest, and not one of the two poorest regions in Croatia. Domagoj hints at these traces in the seemingly invisible, interrogates, exclaims….

This series is in line with Domagoj’s interest in social and political issues, serious topics and transience and history – both of an individual (Post Factum exhibition) and of an entire region, in this case, his native Slavonia.
