SHE WAS UNAWARE OF HER BORDERS. / EGO IN HABITAT.
Curator: Branka Benčić
Bačva Gallery, Home of HDLU
September 24– October 11, 2020

Following all recommendations of the National Civil Protection Headquarters, exhibition SHE WAS UNAWARE OF HER BORDERS. / EGO IN HABITAT., by Petra Feroancová, will be opened in front of the Home of HDLU, on Thursday, September 24 at 7 pm in front of  Home of HDLU.

She Was Unawareof Her Borders (Ego In Habitat), the first solo exhibition of the notedSlovak artist Petra Feriancová in Zagreb is revealed as the artist’s contactwith the space of the Bačva gallery. By placing the works in dialogue with theexhibition space, Petra Feriancová points to the tensions between the space,the observer, and the observed. Her gesture is aimed at questioning spatialrelationships and interactions between objects and subjects, staging theperformative character of the exhibition and moving through space. (…)

(…) Petra Feriancová gathers objects and paintings that she exhibits as a kind of archeology of memory. She deals with, Petra points out, “surviving” objects and the aspiration of objects to expose a part of their own history. Through formal and sensual installations, he deals with objects, in relation to human life, their history, existence, duration, survival, fragility, emphasizing the atmosphere and evoking similar feelings in the viewer. In this way, the artist uses specific visual language to create spaces, memories, catastrophe atmospheres, archeological remains, abandoned humanism, and an encyclopedia formed in the space of experimentation between scientific, historical, and private view, potentiality and imagination, connecting intimate and universal.”
