Karas Gallery
September 3 – September 15, 2019

Opening of the exhibition: Tuesday, September 3 at 7 pm at the Karas Gallery

Exhibition Globes, by Mia Orsag, will be opened on Tuesday, September 3 at 7 pm at the Karas Gallery (Zvonimirova 58).

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”
Marcel Proust

(…) Mia Orsag, therefore, fills the small space of the Karas Gallery with seven – a number burdened with symbolic and associative connotations – white spheres, not entirely regular in shape, in different dimensions and prominent textures. (…)

(…) Each Mia´s sphere with its wrinkled, meshed, we would say wounded, the texture will immediately bring to our mind the particular features characteristic of the sculpture of Art Informel or New realism. But it’s just a superficial and misleading impression. These spheres do not speak so much about the agony of industrial civilization, whose material relics are embedded in artistic artifacts pervaded with existentialism, but much more about the crisis in which, in the digitally organized and ever-changing modern world, the human capacity for contemplation and memorization has fallen.  (…)

(…) Mia Orsag, in her own words, approaches lace coasters and tablecloths as a medium in which the meditative energy of devotional and process-treated work is permanently stored. By drowning them in polyester, the memory of a completely different time is permanently preserved. Of course, the shape of the sphere contributes to that feeling with its roundness and completeness. Space and time have merged into one, and each of us has yet to find our sphere.
