Ivica Malčić
TEN YEARS LATER
PM Gallery
March 1 – 12, 2017

Ivica Malčić’s solo exhibition – TEN YEARS LATER will be open on Wednesday, 1 March 2017 at 19.30 h in the PM Gallery of the Home of the Croatian Association of Artists.

The exhibition “Ten Years Later“ is a continuation of the artist’s concept of having an exhibition in the same gallery every ten years, which started with the exhibitions in the VN Gallery (1994, 2004 and 2014). The exhibition in 2014 was named “Ten Years After“, and the one to be opened in the PM Gallery is named “Ten Years Later”. Exhibition names are taken from Alvin Lee’s English rock bands, as homage to the artist’s youth.

Malčić began the series of exhibitions in the PM Gallery in 2007 by exhibiting 365 diary drawings from 2006 named “Vincent Kick a Hole in the Sky“.

Ten years later he repeated the same process by exhibiting 366 diary drawings from 2016, one for each day of the year (this time 366 drawings because 2016 was a leap year). The difference between these exhibitions lies in the artist’s choice of media and formats. The drawings from ten years ago were made in various formats, using different techniques and types of paper, whereas the works from 2016 were created on A4 “bankpost“ paper.

The drawings reflect Malčić’s daily priorities, directly related to his creative activities, such as the experience of painting a painting followed by diary drawings of this activity in the evening.

If the immediate painting activity would not happen on a certain day, the artist would create a daily drawing depicting situations from his personal life, inspired by popular culture, everyday life or the problems of an artist’s existence. In Malčić’s drawings, intimate and private intertwine with the media and social and translate into artistic and symbolic.

All the drawing are dated and numbered and will be exhibited in a chronological order in a circular gallery space.

Susanna Flock
SLIPPERY COPIES
Curator: Branka Benčić
PM Gallery
February 17 – 26, 2017

Formal opening of the exhibition Susanna Flock – SLIPPERY COPIES will be held on February 17, at 7.00 pm.

„Slippery Copies“
The fusion of the net and real life has increased to such a degree that a distinction has almost become obsolete, the techniques of the “virtual“ gain in social and cultural importance. „Slippery Copies“ addresses the variable dimensionality of the digital and the resulting possibilities of dealing with entirely new contexts of meaning. Approaching the phenomena from different angles and views, the exhibitions includes a selection of my recent works and new works derived from my current research into the relationship between the body and its technologically-mediated environment.
The structure of the exhibition is based on our movement in the net. Here the paths, topics and thoughts jump from one link to the next. The selection of the assembled works takes up the world of side-by-side tabs and endless links in the flow of visual associations.

The central work of the exhibition is the video installation “Fetish Finger“.
Altogether twenty experimental video clips can be seen, that deal with the complexity of haptic perception in the context of screen based digital media.
Through digitization and the associated dematerialization of objects, the longing for haptic perception often increases. The moving images are associatively concerned with contact at the interface between the physical and the virtual, activeness and passiveness.
In addition to images of gestures and actions, 3D animations and photographs, video clips of so called “Food Diaries” are included in the work, in which the daily diet of various individuals is filmed and then uploaded to Youtube.

Formally, the video „Fetish Finger“ is read as if scrolling down a webpage. The video clips are not alined horizontally, but vertically. The narrative takes place from top to bottom.
Alongside the video installation, photographs and text works can be seen.
The photographs examine the „stuff“ of dough, as a living material that is never static, but is constantly changing and growing. Only by the action of mechanical energy the mixture of flour and water form the dough. This very physical process was then subjected to digital image processing tools. Further the dough motif was distorted, kneaded and shaped by virtual actions.
The texts such as “Smell like cheese but look real” and other selected quotations are sampled from the buyer reviews of an replica object purchased online. The comments describe handling, satisfaction and materiality of the simulated product.
The fabrics containing the quotations are presented between two acrylic sheet; the resultant folding and flattening emphasizes various readings of the text and highlights the „slipperiness“ of meaning and interpretation.
