The international group exhibition “Worlds Within Worlds” curated by Jelena Tamindžija Donnart will open in Prsten Gallery, Croatian Association of Fine Artists on Thursday, September 14 at 7 pm.

The international exhibition “Worlds within worlds” brings together five artists Sophie Erlund (Denmark), Stephen Kent (USA), Josep Maynou (Spain), Igor Eškinja (Croatia) and Mark Požlep (Slovenia), was originally presented in February, 2023 at the Contemporary Art Center CCA Andratx in Mallorca, and then in April, 2023 at the Museum of Modern Art Dubrovnik. The exhibition was realized after a one-month artist-in-residence programme organized by the Contemporary Art Center CCA Andratx in Mallorca, founded by the famous Danish-French art collector couple Jacob and Patricia Asbæk. The organizers of the exhibition are Croatian Association of Fine Artists, CCA Andratx, Platform Nomad, Museum of Modern Art Dubrovnik, and the project is supported by the City of Zagreb, City of Dubrovnik, the Ministry of Culture and Media of the Republic of Croatia, Danish Arts Foundation (Statens Kunstfond), the Goethe Institute, Hilton Imperial Dubrovnik.

The gathered group of artists, taking a break from everyday life, questions their artistic practice during the artist-in-residence programme where they delve deeper into new and already raised questions in their work: from the question of image creation and the phenomenon of hyperproduction of the visual in today’s era in the paintings of various techniques by the author Stephen Kent; recording moments in the process of the creation of visual diaries by Josep Maynou, where the artist uses everyday objects; questioning our own perception of the space that surrounds us and in which we live in the work of Igor Eškinja; the relationship between object and man and questioning his anthropocentric view in the sculpture, drawings and sound work of Sophie Erlund; and questions of the creation of life situations in which we will bring ourselves to a new dimension of perception of reality in the video work and drawings of Mark Požlep.

The gathered group of artists were participants in the artist-in-residence programme named “Artist meets Chef” in 2017 and 2019 at the Adriatic Hotel in Rovinj, led by Vanja Žanko and Jelena Tamindžija Donnart from the Nomad Platform.
