Katarina Juričić: Orange&Blue
OPENING: 03/09, 18h

“Staring at the Sun and the Sea. The scenery is magical and I feel relieved. The light and the colors nurture my eyes, and the images remain in my mind. Infinite combinations of Orange and Blue, compressed in a memory where reality merges with fantasy.”
In ‘Orange&Blue’, a photographic series which takes the final form as a site-specific installation, I recall a very familiar yet sublime experience of Sunrise and Sunset. Scenes such as the first sun ray of the day or the sunset behind the horizon, are both emotionally and visually profound. As such, they provoke an intuitive reaction to be documented. This results in an overflow of similar photographs in which all the magic of the sublime experience is reduced to an immaterial reproduction of “already seen”.
By taking the iconic imagery of sunrises and sunsets which our memory is loaded with as a reference, I strive to recreate the full range of sunlight colors which we experience throughout the day. Orange and blue light serves as a tool to come as close as possible to the feeling one has when being in the sun and soaking its warmth and color. Throughout the process of re-imagining the iconic imagery, figuration reaches abstraction and all that’s left in the image are light, form and color – ultimately the constitutive elements of any photograph.

Katarina Juričić (1994, Zagreb) graduated from Journalism at Faculty of Political Science in Zagreb and Photography at Royal Academy of Art (KABK) in The Hague. In her artistic practice, Juričić seeks new forms to embody photography and explore its physicality. She visualizes the imaginary, and therefore unphotographable, aspects of reality such as memories, emotions, visions and hallucinations. She exhibited at Photo Basel in Basel; Unseen Photo Festival, Galerie Ron Mandos and Melkweg Expo in Amsterdam; Galerie Bart in Nijmegen; Nest and Grey Space in The Middle in The Hague; and Rietveld paviljoen in Amesrfoort, among others. Her work is also part of AkzoNobel Art Foundation Collection in Amsterdam.
