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

BEHZAD KHOSRAVI NOORI
PROFESSOR BALTHAZAR AND A MONUMENT TO AN INVISIBLE CITIZEN
Curators: Ana Kovačić and Lea Vene
Bačva Gallery, Home of HDLU
July 2– September 6, 2020

The opening of the exhibition by Behzad Khosravi Noori, Professor Balthazar and a Monument to the Invisible Citizen will be in front of the main entrance to the Home of HDLU, on Thursday, July 2, 2020. at 7 p.m.

For the summer atmosphere and pleasant socializing at the opening, we have prepared the music for you, which will be played by Lina Kovačević.

Professor Balthazar is a smart scientist who wishes everyone well. He lives in the picturesque and somewhat crazy city of Balthazargrad. Professor Balthazar can use his magic machine to solve all the problems of citizens. The exhibition gives us the opportunity to meet this ingenious character or, for those who watched the animated television series as a child, to revive the memory of him. Also, we can experience the monument that gave the exhibition its name and be inspired by the ability of Professor Balthazar to solve problems in the workshop space of the exhibition. The exhibition also encourages us to see more of the children’s program and to take a closer look at the social and artistic conditions that influenced Professor Balthazar’s production. Behzad Khosravi Noori draws a new political and cultural map of the Cold War period, commonly described as a period in which the world was divided into East and West, and focuses on the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) that coexisted as a counterpoint to the Eastern and Western Cold Blocs. Among other things, the NAM was founded by the Yugoslav leader Tito, with the aim of putting an end to armaments and threats of war. The movement was also dedicated to fighting colonialism and racism and promoting peaceful coexistence. This influenced not only the global political situation but also the Zagreb School of Animation, where Professor Balthazar was born.

Preface

 

Behzad Khosravi Noori takes this transnational children’s program created in the Zagreb Film Studio in the period 1967-1978 as a starting point for a pink-yellow installation in the form of a climber made of a metal structure reminiscent of a scaffold with a slide and on the other hand extensive research on the creation of an animated series.

Thus, children will be able to enjoy a pink-yellow climber with a slide and watch the adventures of this famous inventor through selected episodes, while parents, through two documentaries, will be able to learn about the

history of the animated series and the political context of the time.

The project Professor Balthazar and the Monument to the Invisible Citizen has so far been shown in the form of a solo exhibition in several Swedish cities (Stockholm, Malmö, and Kalmar) and at the Art Encounters Biennale in Timisoara, Romania, and the final stop is a solo exhibition opening on July 2, 2020. in HDLU and lasts throughout the summer holidays.

At the end of the exhibition, the artist GIFTS the sculptural installation FOR PUBLIC USE, for which competition has been announced.

KARLA ČURČINSKI AND LAURA MARTINOVIĆ
THE EFFORT OF INFINITY. I’M AFRAID TO DREAM
Karas Gallery, Kralja Zvonimira 58
June 23– July 5, 2020

Following all recommendations of the National Civil Protection Headquarters, exhibition THE EFFORT OF INFINITY. I’M AFRAID TO DREAM, by Karla Čurčinski and Laura Martinović, will be opened on Tuesday, June 23 at 7 pm at the Karas Gallery (Kralja Zvonimira 58).

 

ARTISTS´ STATEMENT

Through artworks on the topic of The effort of infinity, I fear to dream we question the current issues of culture in society, the form of cultural institutions and its society, and the limits of failure, success, and artist’s motivation. We present our own experiences and through the synonym of the bad in these situations, we create cultural symbols that are a reflection of the expected and known result.
We place great emphasis on a distorted illusion based on the relationships of the powerful and influential that are an indicator of success. Such a tool is an integral part of the society in which we live. If you work and have a little luck, is success a logical consequence? In the artworks, we show that little bit of luck. A little luck is found in a few drinks of coffee a day, too iodized wines, three hours of listening to gloomy monologues of philosophers, the company of smug or imaginary socialites, the despair of grovelers, God-given critics, and a promiscuous view from above.
The hard and dedicated work of the artist is put aside. He is not treated equally. Moreover, he is completely invisible. Maybe forever, and maybe just until a moment of little luck. How little luck is enough then?

ARTIST STATEMENT

The Biggest

With this project I want to draw attention to the importance of culture valuation, the culture of remembrance as well as the culture of nurturing and protection, both tangible and intangible cultural heritage and valuation of those who have, with their opus, enriched domestic and world cultural heritage. I want to pay tribute to all those who have used disobedience, as a means of exposing the intellectual laziness and sluggishness of individuals and the masses, seduced by supposedly important and sublime ideas and ideologies, which serve to protect the ridiculous and deceitful current regimes. Gotovac created, as a member of the BLACK WAVE in former Yugoslav cinematography – an intellectual and critical artistic current, which was condemned by the communist authorities because it ridiculed the ugliness of the government and propagandistic, in most cases partisan, films. With their attitude and artistic work, the participants of the BLACK WAVE came to the disfavor of the government, experiencing censorship, persecution, the ban on activities, court and prison punishments. By their example, they showed how an individual, in this case an artist, should behave and how to deal with the image that the society in certain conditions forms about the disloyal individual, trying to silence him, without choosing the means. With this project, I want to draw attention to how everyone should, with their work and life, be themselves. How they must follow moral and ethical principles, regardless of possible threats of material or existential nature. I want to motivate artists and consumers of art to work honestly and seriously in culture and art on the path of building and developing a culture that is in line with world cultural trends and which, at certain times, precedes these same world trends.

With this project, I follow the path of BLACK WAVE members who, contrary to the prevailing ideology and propaganda activities of state artists and cultural workers, devised a critical artistic direction, which portrayed real life and the hidden dark face of life in the “socialist paradise”. As a volunteer, officer, and disabled war veteran, I fought against the same opponent as the members of BLACK WAVE.

With the end of the Croatian War of Independence and the defense of the Republic of Croatia, I replace war weapons with artistic means and thus prove that artists are warriors in one way and those true warriors can be artists.

To me as an individual, as a person, my body and my mind are a unique and inseparable whole and together they equally form a tool by which I realize myself while at the same time realizing space, time, history and social, economic, religious and all other circumstances, situations, and spiritual movements in which I currently exist. What is especially similar to LAUER and me is the realization… that the naked body in the public space of my city is blasphemy, insulting the petty bourgeoisie, so, exposing myself, I publicly take off the false conformist masks of hesitants who, by living their lives, actually lie, hide from their reality, who are afraid to publicly express opinions and views, and try to, in every single way, avoid any change done by their own actions.
My goal is not just to realize a project, or to create a work of art. What is important to me is the course and process of making a work of art, each phase through which a thought or idea passes. That is, the path – the thought – the idea – the process of work – a finished work of art.

ORDINARITIES
Karas Gallery, Home of HDLU
May 26– June 7, 2020

Following all recommendations of the National Civil Protection Headquarters, exhibition Ordinarities, by Marko Zeman, will be opened on Tuesday, May 26 at 6 pm at the Karas Gallery (Kralja Zvonimira 58).

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

At Karas Gallery, I have exhibited works with motifs and topics that have been occupying me for quite some time. They have in common that they depict ordinary, everyday objects and situations. Mugs, pots, cutlery, watering cans, hands, feet, children’s play on a sunny summer day in the sandbox of the park, going for ice cream, walking through the woods… I tried to paint the motifs straightforward and as directly as possible, but visually interesting, concentrating on the clarity and beauty of the large forms present in objects for everyday use.

Also, the situations of encounters between everyday objects and man, i.e. the presentation of human states in certain situations, are artistically interesting to me. So in some paintings, I tried to evoke the nervousness and despair that overwhelms us when we are in the midst of the chaos of an unmade kitchen, standing in front of a pile of scattered and unwashed dishes. In contrast, a cup of warm afternoon coffee or a stroll through the flora of the forest is an attempt to evoke comfort and peace.

I come to the motifs by doing a large number of drawings. When I make a drawing that I think might work in the medium of the painting, I take a large format and get started. Thus, with a few medium-format paintings, the second part of the exhibition consists of a large number of small drawings, which served as a preparation for painting, or which were created spontaneously during the work on the paintings. do not consider most of these drawings to be finished and defined works of art, but I think that they are a necessary part of the artistic whole that I have exhibited. On them, one can see the process of looking for shapes and proportions. Some ideas arose from accidentally overlapping drawings that lay in the clutter of the floor or drawing table. I transferred this method to collage, which is a common and important element of my paintings. As I work, I bring into the painting everything I know in a painterly sense. And that never proves to be enough. Then I paint further, to the point where the painting becomes stronger and smarter than I am until it surprises me. If that surprise is unpleasant, I start over. If pleasant, the painting is done.

 

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Marko Zeman was born in 1975. In Zagreb. He studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb in the class of Zlatko Keser. He graduated in 2010 under the mentorship of Zoltan Novak. He has exhibited in four solo and numerous group exhibitions. In 2015/2016 as an external associate, he teaches a drawing and painting course at the Faculty of Graphic Arts in Zagreb.

SANDRA STERLE
FRAGMENTED FILM
Bačva Gallery, Home of HDLU
May 28– June 14, 2020

Following all recommendations of the National Civil Protection Headquarters, exhibition Fragmented film, by Sandra Sterle, will be opened in front of the Home of HDLU, on Thursday, May 28 at 7 pm at the Bačva Gallery (Home of HDLU).

“Sandra Sterle comes with a project both subtle and invasive. She is in a process of reconstruction being aware of the fragile state of personal memory when chronologies fail, information overlap, emotions come through. She is working with the personal archive as well as questioning it underlining the beauty of post-documentation where facts and fiction combine. She is using memory and imagination at the same time making a statement that real stories of real lives are a product of our brains and our brains are dead if not seen from a dynamic perspective more related to Quantum physics than to still linearity. It is even more challenging to tell stories of others through our minds that filter information through various layers. The grandfather-granddaughter relationship is built on a contrast between emotional archiving and the cold, brutal public surveillance of the digital era. Observation can be a tool for oppression, control, pleasure, censorship but it can also be overturned in a counter-surveillance. The artist is deconstructing the very concept of surveillance, the hierarchical vision. Data storage is a fact by the capacity of monitoring and recording, but it is also fiction as it fails to perform ethically and to encompass and define humanity and its complex traits… Data storage is a tool that can be useful, but it doesn´t replace the memory of the animal brain. Sandra Sterle’s approach can be seen as poetic but it is the consequence of awareness in front of the intersection between personal memory and artificial memory. She chose working with both, mixing them and accepting imagination as the survival kit at all times.”
