ARTIST STATEMENT

The Biggest

With this project I want to draw attention to the importance of culture valuation, the culture of remembrance as well as the culture of nurturing and protection, both tangible and intangible cultural heritage and valuation of those who have, with their opus, enriched domestic and world cultural heritage. I want to pay tribute to all those who have used disobedience, as a means of exposing the intellectual laziness and sluggishness of individuals and the masses, seduced by supposedly important and sublime ideas and ideologies, which serve to protect the ridiculous and deceitful current regimes. Gotovac created, as a member of the BLACK WAVE in former Yugoslav cinematography – an intellectual and critical artistic current, which was condemned by the communist authorities because it ridiculed the ugliness of the government and propagandistic, in most cases partisan, films. With their attitude and artistic work, the participants of the BLACK WAVE came to the disfavor of the government, experiencing censorship, persecution, the ban on activities, court and prison punishments. By their example, they showed how an individual, in this case an artist, should behave and how to deal with the image that the society in certain conditions forms about the disloyal individual, trying to silence him, without choosing the means. With this project, I want to draw attention to how everyone should, with their work and life, be themselves. How they must follow moral and ethical principles, regardless of possible threats of material or existential nature. I want to motivate artists and consumers of art to work honestly and seriously in culture and art on the path of building and developing a culture that is in line with world cultural trends and which, at certain times, precedes these same world trends.

With this project, I follow the path of BLACK WAVE members who, contrary to the prevailing ideology and propaganda activities of state artists and cultural workers, devised a critical artistic direction, which portrayed real life and the hidden dark face of life in the “socialist paradise”. As a volunteer, officer, and disabled war veteran, I fought against the same opponent as the members of BLACK WAVE.

With the end of the Croatian War of Independence and the defense of the Republic of Croatia, I replace war weapons with artistic means and thus prove that artists are warriors in one way and those true warriors can be artists.

To me as an individual, as a person, my body and my mind are a unique and inseparable whole and together they equally form a tool by which I realize myself while at the same time realizing space, time, history and social, economic, religious and all other circumstances, situations, and spiritual movements in which I currently exist. What is especially similar to LAUER and me is the realization… that the naked body in the public space of my city is blasphemy, insulting the petty bourgeoisie, so, exposing myself, I publicly take off the false conformist masks of hesitants who, by living their lives, actually lie, hide from their reality, who are afraid to publicly express opinions and views, and try to, in every single way, avoid any change done by their own actions.
My goal is not just to realize a project, or to create a work of art. What is important to me is the course and process of making a work of art, each phase through which a thought or idea passes. That is, the path – the thought – the idea – the process of work – a finished work of art.

MARKO ZEMAN
ORDINARITIES
Karas Gallery, Home of HDLU
May 26– June 7, 2020

Following all recommendations of the National Civil Protection Headquarters, exhibition Ordinarities, by Marko Zeman, will be opened on Tuesday, May 26 at 6 pm at the Karas Gallery (Kralja Zvonimira 58).

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

At Karas Gallery, I have exhibited works with motifs and topics that have been occupying me for quite some time. They have in common that they depict ordinary, everyday objects and situations. Mugs, pots, cutlery, watering cans, hands, feet, children’s play on a sunny summer day in the sandbox of the park, going for ice cream, walking through the woods… I tried to paint the motifs straightforward and as directly as possible, but visually interesting, concentrating on the clarity and beauty of the large forms present in objects for everyday use.

Also, the situations of encounters between everyday objects and man, i.e. the presentation of human states in certain situations, are artistically interesting to me. So in some paintings, I tried to evoke the nervousness and despair that overwhelms us when we are in the midst of the chaos of an unmade kitchen, standing in front of a pile of scattered and unwashed dishes. In contrast, a cup of warm afternoon coffee or a stroll through the flora of the forest is an attempt to evoke comfort and peace.

I come to the motifs by doing a large number of drawings. When I make a drawing that I think might work in the medium of the painting, I take a large format and get started. Thus, with a few medium-format paintings, the second part of the exhibition consists of a large number of small drawings, which served as a preparation for painting, or which were created spontaneously during the work on the paintings. do not consider most of these drawings to be finished and defined works of art, but I think that they are a necessary part of the artistic whole that I have exhibited. On them, one can see the process of looking for shapes and proportions. Some ideas arose from accidentally overlapping drawings that lay in the clutter of the floor or drawing table. I transferred this method to collage, which is a common and important element of my paintings. As I work, I bring into the painting everything I know in a painterly sense. And that never proves to be enough. Then I paint further, to the point where the painting becomes stronger and smarter than I am until it surprises me. If that surprise is unpleasant, I start over. If pleasant, the painting is done.

SANDRA STERLE
FRAGMENTED FILM
Bačva Gallery, Home of HDLU
May 28– June 14, 2020

Following all recommendations of the National Civil Protection Headquarters, exhibition Fragmented film, by Sandra Sterle, will be opened in front of the Home of HDLU, on Thursday, May 28 at 7 pm at the Bačva Gallery (Home of HDLU).

“Sandra Sterle comes with a project both subtle and invasive. She is in a process of reconstruction being aware of the fragile state of personal memory when chronologies fail, information overlap, emotions come through. She is working with the personal archive as well as questioning it underlining the beauty of post-documentation where facts and fiction combine. She is using memory and imagination at the same time making a statement that real stories of real lives are a product of our brains and our brains are dead if not seen from a dynamic perspective more related to Quantum physics than to still linearity. It is even more challenging to tell stories of others through our minds that filter information through various layers. The grandfather-granddaughter relationship is built on a contrast between emotional archiving and the cold, brutal public surveillance of the digital era. Observation can be a tool for oppression, control, pleasure, censorship but it can also be overturned in a counter-surveillance. The artist is deconstructing the very concept of surveillance, the hierarchical vision. Data storage is a fact by the capacity of monitoring and recording, but it is also fiction as it fails to perform ethically and to encompass and define humanity and its complex traits… Data storage is a tool that can be useful, but it doesn´t replace the memory of the animal brain. Sandra Sterle’s approach can be seen as poetic but it is the consequence of awareness in front of the intersection between personal memory and artificial memory. She chose working with both, mixing them and accepting imagination as the survival kit at all times.”

VALENTINA SUPANZ MARINIĆ
TOXICITY
Karas Gallery
May 12 – May 24, 2020

Following all recommendations of the National Civil Protection Headquarters, an exhibition by Valentina Supanz Marinić entitled Toxicity, will be opened at the Karas Gallery (Zvonimirova 58) on May 12, 2020. The opening will be virtual and will be viewable on the HDLU Facebook page. The exhibition will be open for public from May 13th. 

“The phantasmagorical scenes of landscape, almost de Chirico-like, metaphysical, devoid of life and existence, unfold before us in Valentina Supanz Marinić’s works. This is a fictitious and inhospitable world, suffocated by neon smoke and heavy, toxic air. A post-apocalyptic scenario, reminiscent of the scenes from Cormac McCarthy’s novel The Road. A world without the sun, dark and cruel, destroyed by some unnamed cataclysm that we are painfully aware of. The repertoire of motifs is very similar in all her works. Nature becomes unnatural, and people, in overalls and face masks, are merely symbolic figures of doom. The post-apocalyptic world slaps us in the face with neon colours that the artist uses to further emphasize this toxicity. The sky turns yellow, water purple and green, and vegetation dies off or becomes strange. The electrified horizons of silence fade at dusk (of humanity?), whereas people appear only from behind, in clothes that clearly show that they found themselves in a world in which they would not be able to survive without the protective equipment.. (…)

(…) The observer becomes fully aware of the disturbing truth about the alarming state of the environment, which is something we hear about in the media. However, given the current situation with the Coronavirus epidemic, the observer is also concerned whether we are facing the collapse of civilizational norms due to some huge crisis and whether an average homo vulgaris will manage to cope with it or are we facing extinction. This makes Valentina’s work very topical and engaged, and it clearly states that art cannot, and should not, be detached from reality, immune to serious issues, and enclosed within the studio walls.”

PETAR KATAVIĆ
ARCHITECTURE
Karas Gallery
March 9 – March 22, 2020

Exhibition Architecture, by Petar Katavić, will be opened on Monday, March 9 at 7 pm at the Karas Gallery (Zvonimirova 58).

“The exhibition presents the work of Petar Katavić, and here selected works are the continuation of the exhibition held at the Museum of Fine Arts in January this year. Since 2017 Petar has been developing and building on his ideas about shaping space with volume, which he also strives to show through his works. The reduction of colour, lines and surfaces, as well as simplicity in thinking about visual art, are the characteristics of the artist’s work, reflected both in the titles of his works and in the exhibition set-up. The exhibition held at the Museum of Fine Arts was titled Space, mostly because it was a site-specific exhibition creating bearing in mind the specific exhibition space within the gallery, and the title of this exhibition – Architecture – is a logical continuation that reveals the focus of the artist’s interests. (…)

(…) Although the aesthetics of Petar’s works is reduced, minimalistic and simple, each work reflects his dedication and devotion, which he sees as the most important factor in his work. In conclusion, I will again, just as in the preface to the Space exhibition, refer to Mies van der Rohe’s famous motto “less is more“, Petar’s guiding principle that very clearly illustrates the subtlety and meditativeness that I find in Petar’s works.”

MARGARETA LEKIĆ
THE RUBBER CONCRETE
Karas Gallery
February 11 – February 23, 2020

Exhibition The Rubber Concrete, by Margareta Lekić, will be opened on Tuesday, February 11 at 7 pm at the Karas Gallery (Zvonimirova 58). Exhibition is also the public presentation of the artistic part of the doctoral thesis “Redefining Sculpture Using Contemporary Materials” at the Postgraduate Study of the Academy of Fine Arts, University of Zagreb.

Mentors: Prof. Damir Matausic and Ph.D. Margareta Turkalj Podmanicki.

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

The development of technology and the desire to create new products also result in the creation of new materials. The Gumeni beton (Rubber Concrete) series of works and the new eponymous material were created as a reaction to the inability to access new and innovative solutions in the material manufacturing industry. Searching for an unusually flexible material, I came across a concrete called ConFlexPave, which is rubber under pressure but is not flexible to the extent that it can be restored to its original shape. Since ConFlexPave is not commercially available, I contacted Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore), that is, NTU-JTC Industrial Infrastructure Innovation Centre (I³C) to obtain a sample of the concrete for the purposes of my artistic research. I did not get a reply, so I decided to create a new type of material myself, without having any scientific knowledge and expensive laboratory equipment. I created concrete that is rubber in both directions when pressed with hands. However, since I am not a scientist and the material has not been tested in the conditions under which materials are usually tested, I cannot conclude whether this material, a rubber concrete, will be equally flexible even after a certain amount of time has passed. The newly created material, that is, the new type of concrete, has all the characteristics of concrete as a composite material, it consists of cement, gravel, sand, water and additional components that make it flexible.

The Rubber Concrete series of works consists of three sculptures titled Rubber Concrete 1, Rubber Concrete 2 and Rubber Concrete 3. I use the word “rubber” because in everyday language it is common to say that anything flexible is like made of rubber, for example, a physically flexible person is often referred to as “a rubber man“. Therefore, the word “rubber“ in the work’s title does not refer to the physical structure but has a figurative meaning. All three sculptures are in equal proportions, in the correct size ratio. This structure, i.e. the order and correlation in the Rubber Concrete series of works is obvious because all three sculptures are placed in a certain ratio to each other; Rubber Concrete 1 is approximately 40% higher than Rubber Concrete 2, and Rubber Concrete 2 is 40% higher than Rubber Concrete 3. In doing so, I created a proportional relationship, not only between the dimensions of the sculptures but also between the dimensions of concrete slabs. The concrete slab in the work Rubber Concrete 1 is 40% longer and wider than the slab in the work Rubber Concrete 2, and the slab in the work Rubber Concrete 2 is 40% longer and wider than the slab in the work Rubber Concrete 3.   

 

Rubber Concrete 1

– concrete slate: 25x12x1 cm

– sculpture: 140x40x40 cm

 

Rubber Concrete 2

– concrete slate: 35x17x1,5 cm

– sculpture: 98x48x40 cm

 

Rubber Concrete 3

– concrete slate: 45x24x2 cm

– sculpture: 70x55x40 cm

 

Accordingly, a calculation can be made:

 

SCULPTURE – height extension (h) by 40%

 

The second sculpture was extended by 40% over the third, i.e.:

h_2=h_3+0.4h_3

h_2=1.4h_3.

 

Since the first sculpture is 40% higher than the second, the following formula will apply:

h_1=h_2+0.4h_2

h_1=1.4h_2

h_1=1.4∙1.4h_3

h_1=〖1.4〗^2 h_3.

 

If there were n number of sculptures, formulas to associate their heights with the height of the nth sculpture would read:

h_(n-m) =〖1.4〗^m h_n,

where n is the maximum number of sculptures and m is a growing number of natural numbers.

 

In particular, if we applied the last mentioned formula to the dimensions of the sculptures in the artwork, it would be:

→for n=3, m=1: h_(3-1)=〖1.4〗^1∙h_3

h_2=1.4∙h_3

h_2=1.4∙70 cm

h_2=98 cm

which is the length of the height of the other sculpture.

 

The same would be true of the first sculpture as well:

→for n=3, m=2: h_(3-2)=〖1.4〗^2∙h_3

h_1=〖1.4〗^2∙h_3

h_1=〖1.4〗^2∙70 cm

h_2=137.2 cm ≈140 cm

 

CONCRETE SLABS –   height extension by 40% and width extension by 40%

 

If x denotes the lengths and y the widths of the slabs, then for the 2nd concrete slab which is in relation

to the first one longer by 40% the following formula will apply: x_2=x_1+0.4x_1

x_2=1.4x_1.

 

For the third slab, which is 40% longer than the second, the following would be true:

x_3=x_2+0.4x_2

x_3=1.4x_2

x_3=1.4∙1.4x_1

x_3=〖1.4〗^2 x_1.

 

In general: x_n=〖1.4〗^(n-1) x_1,

where n is the number of the concrete slab and x_n the corresponding length of the same slab.

 

A similar consideration can be applied to the widths of the slabs which we will denote by y, and so for these dimensions a following formula would apply: y_n=〖1.4〗^(n-1) y_1, where n is the number of the concrete slab and y_n the corresponding width of the same slab.

 

Applying formula to the specified dimensions of concrete slabs in the artwork, we get the following: →for n=2: 〖 x〗_2=1.4∙25 cm=35 cm

〖 y〗_2=1.4∙12 cm=16.8 cm ≈17 cm

→for n=3: 〖 x〗_3=〖1.4〗^2∙25 cm=49 cm

y_3=〖1.4〗^2∙12 cm=23.52 cm ≈24 cm.
