FEDOR FISCHER
Collapse
Bačva Gallery, Home of Croatian Fine Artists
August, 24 – September, 3, 2017


Opening of the exhibition: Thursday, August 24 at 8pm at the Bačva Gallery

Exhibition Collapse, by academic painter Fedor Fischer will open on Thursday, August 24 at 8pm at the Bačva Gallery in the Home of Croatian Fine Artists.

At the 3rd Biennial of Painting in 2015, artwork of Fedor Fischer, with which he anticipated a great creative turn, now for the first time represented as a whole in this exhibition, got Special HPB Acknowledgement by the Award jury. That is why his solo exhibition Collapse is considered an announcement for the 4th Biennial, which is opening on September, 20 in Home of Croatian Fine Artists in Zagreb.

As noted by Josip Zanki, the President of HDLU, in the last few years, academic painter Fedor Fischer has made a big turn in his art poetics. From figurative and narrative painting built on the traditions of the German middle generation (such as works of Jörg Immendorff) and the legacy of the Leipzig school (especially Neo Rauch’s), Fischer has transformed himself into a painter who builds a painting as an object. (…) New works, which he represents in the Bačva Gallery (…) start from the materiality of the painting-object. Fischer uses the material of the canvas as something completely realistic and physical, and for the first time in Croatian contemporary art he moves boundaries and methods of painting procedures. (…) By following the footsteps of his art role models, Fischer on his Collapse exhibition, opens up new questions on how to treat paintings-objects, an idea of painting as soil, and in the end “the infinity of surface”, in which he believes as much as he believes in the painting. It is this infinity that opens up to us in the continuous circle of the Bačva Gallery.

Croatian Association of Fine Artists cordially invites You to the Summer Exhibition Thursday on Thursday, August 3 at 8pm with 3 exhibition openings.

Exhibition openings will be accompanied by concert performance at 9pm with Reinhard Süss (composer and E-Piano), Tanja Süss (cello) and Theresa Hajni (clarinet) and reading from Wolfgang Bleier (with Sead Muhamedagić’s translation) at Club HDLU

The Annual Member’s Exhibition is a revue exhibition which, in line with its long tradition, gives the public an insight into current production, achieved in all disciplines: from classical to new media.

The site-specific installation Spaces between Land, Water and Sky (2017) has been created by Silvia Maria Grossmann, guided and inspired by the Bačva Gallery. The gallery’s circular space (a rotunda designed by Ivan Meštrović) influenced how the installation was set up, and also provided a perfect response to the artist’s poetry. In her installation, Grossmann examines the symbolism of fabled rivers, but also to the relationship between the wind, sea and light.

More about the exhibition

This project is the result of several years of international cooperation between Croatian Association of the Fine Artists (HDLU) and the Westdeutscher Kunstlerbund (WKB), the last of which was exhibition  “(re) thinking Space & Place”, a presentation of Croatian artists ona a group exhibition in Flottmann-Hallen in 2015, in Herne, Germany. Before that, in 2014, WKB members presented themselves at the PM Gallery in the Home of Croatian Fine Artists. Collaboration continues with the project “Expanding photography”, which discusses photography as an expanded medium.

“The exhibition is not composed of pure photographs for the most part, but 16 artistic positions which reinterpret and alienate these images, as well as using photographic material and techniques and including these in other art forms. Here, a wide range of different approaches and ways of dealing with photography is shown, from purely photographic techniques, such as the photogramme, up to the study of the reproduction mechanisms of the Internet. The visitor is invited to deal with his habits of perception and his own approach to photography, and possibly to question these.”

(…) In her work, Silvia Maria Grossmann describes real landscapes in which land and sea meet, where rivers flow into seas and oceans. But she also deals with the cultural spaces where the Alpine and the Mediterranean meet. All these landscapes represent borderline worlds. The living beings found in such places represent not only the connection between different elements, but also between symbolic forms. In these borderline spaces the transformation from the non-manifested to the manifested takes place, from chaos to cosmos. It is here where the ray of creation travels from minerals through plants and animals to man, elementary beings and angels. (…)

Stjepan Šandrk
Spectacle
Bačva Gallery, Home of Croatian Fine Artists,
Trg žrtava fašizma 16, Zagreb
July 19 – July 30 2017.


Exhibition opening: Wednesday, July 19, 2017 at 8pm

The exhibition Spectacle by Stjepan Šandrk will open on Wednesday, July 19, at 8pm at the Bačva Gallery, Home of Croatian Fine Artists in Zagreb.

The Spectacle is a solo exhibition of large format paintings. New approach to images, for the first time, assumes that the image functions as a construction. Though they are created in a way that mimics the photograph, they no longer have documentary character (not even staged), but become a complex scene created by digital manipulation that is later translated into the media of painting. We can say that this is a conscious falsification of the reality that simultaneously exists as a product of that same reality.

“A group of Canadian tourists who are shooting selfie, as well as the North Koreans on the excursion, I’ve appropriated somewhere in the Wasteland Of The Internet,” says Stjepan. “Their appearance, in this environment, is completely unacceptable to me, but at the same time it helps me to make the way we see culture within the post-industrial era visible.”

KORALJKA KOVAČ
K.K.’s Diary
Bačva Gallery
4.-16.7.2017.

Exhibition opening: Tuesday, July 4, 2017, 8pm

The exhibition K.K.’s Diary of Koraljka Kovač will open on Tuesday, July 4 at 8pm at Bačva Gallery (Croatian Association of Fine Artists).

Koraljka attributes an intimate spirit to in total enlarged diary, verbal (hidden and invisible) – visual records (revealed and visible) using collective, not completely perfect symbols of the circle, square, triangle, rectangle… Actually, the communication of their relations of archetypal properties as well as the one connected with elongated rectangles of circular circumference with which it encircles the circular space. (…) The whole idea of encircling was first created in a diary note. With a sort of unconscious automatism, the artist fills pages and pages with intimate signs of a visual and verbal intimate diary, which she unconsciously fills with paintings-drawings-writings while having her mind somewhere else – for example, while talking on the phone or working on sketches. (Željko Marciuš, autthor of the preface)

Lecture by Darius Kowal THE PSYCHOLOGY OF COLOUR AND LIGHT

Darius Kowal has graduated from the Glasgow School of Art and has since exhibited at numerous solo and group exhibitions. He also works as a curator and head of the Combustion Gallery in Zadar, Croatia. In his professional artistic work he focuses on the creative process and sees the time he spends in the atelier as equally valuable as the public presentation. Darius has won numerous awards for his work, including Artsource Industry Award, Art Monthly Australia Award and Deans Honour Roll.

Kowal will focus his educational presentation, adapted to all ages, on the psychological impact of colour and light on the individual. The presentation will address the questions regarding the origins of light and singularity, electromagnetism, unusual manifestation of photons and wavelengths on quantum scales, and the example of Thomas Young’s double slit experiment. He will also lecture on the colour spectrum, the appearance of colours, shades and tones, and the relationship between the eye and the brain, questioning what we actually see. Darius will also present research on the use of specifically coloured light in scientific (and media) experiments, portray how colour is used to affect humans (marketing, sales, catering, etc.) at a subconscious level and also present the topic of Seasonal Affective Disorder phenomenon occurring in the Northern countries, especially in winter when natural light is scarce. The lecture will also include the use of paint in historical artworks in relation to contemporary works. The aim of the lecture is to explore the effect of light and colour on humans, as well as to stimulate the visitors’ interest in colour and light and expand their knowledge of these physical quantities.

The expected duration of the lesson is 90 minutes.
Language of the lecture: English
The entrance to the lecture is free.
