ŽERAVICA 3: THE MYSTYC (3ple Tunnel)

The multimedia exhibition Zeravica 3: The Mystyc (3ple tunnel) which is comprised of works created in traditional media, such as paintings, drawings and photographs, through installations, videos and performances, web art, etc., represents the continuation of multiannual art project that took place at the Museum of Djurdjevac city in 2015. The basic idea behind the project is a kind of an independence and resistance to generally imposed forms and rules of functioning in the art world which often hinder creativity. Bringing distinguished Croatian artists together with their guests from abroad represents a platform for contemplation about the relationship between content and form, with an emphasis on the positive inter-personal communication.

Vlast tijela (GOVERNMENT / BODY)

The exhibition of Damir Stojnic explores the subject of fear of authority and fear of losing the identity, i.e. the subject of death and transience. The ever-interesting subject of Dance Macabre prompted the merger of well-established artists, even those who are long considered classics, represented in the collection of the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rijeka with authors who have just graduated from the Academy of Applied Arts in Rijeka (Dorotea Smrkinic, Silvana Vodnica Filicic and Dino Topolnjak) and highlights the autism and compulsion of human history that create an illusion of cyclicity of time, says the author of the exhibition.

EXHIBITION OVERLAPPED

Vrbnik May day

The town of Vrbnik on the island of Krk is an interesting destination for many artists and curators who have been gathering here on Workers day every year. Casual friendly gatherings and discussions about art resulted in the initiation of a new project, an international festival called Vrbnik May Day Assembly, which brought together about a dozen of artists from Croatia and its' neighboring countries. Although the emphasis was on Workers Day in designing the project, the starting point for the selection of works of art was dictated by the specificity of the place itself. Thus, art works are exhibited both in public and private spaces, from restaurants, butchery, tourist agency as well as throughout the streets and squares.

Željko Jancic Zec

Zeljko Jancic Zec is a multimedia artist, painter, choreographer and theater director. He begun his artistic work in early 90es. He often contemplates the issue of social values and his projects, such as the Blind through Life, are motivated by the lack of empathy, excessive materialism, consumerism, i.e. the decline of moral values the artist notices in modern society.

Damir Stojnic

Ignisograms or drawings of fire present a trademark expression of the Croatian artist Damir Stojnic who, inspired by embers at night, creates a variety of symbolic forms. In this example, he used a small Istrian quarry as the setting for his several hours long ritual performance of creating an angel. The artist believes that fire reflects the essence of everything that exists and what is created in the heat of the flames, burns and disappears in the heat of the flames as well. Hence, the art of Damir Stojnic is often connected to the metaphysical, astrological, alchemical and gnostic teachings.

Dražen Vitolovic

In his work as a sculptor, Drazen Vitolovic, an artist from Rijeka, often combines sculpture, architecture, design and ecology, using traditional techniques and materials together with new technologies such as 3D printing. Vitolovic says the main task of an artist is to push boundaries, in his own mind as well as in the observers', so his greatest challenge is to exhibit in public, mainly open spaces where art is accessible to everyone.

Iva Gobic

The works of Iva Gobic, an artist from Rijeka, feature paper as the main means of expression. While in her restoration work Gobic seeks to cease and decrease the processes of paper decay, in her artistic work she actually initiates and accelerates them thus transforming them into a positive process of materialization of new works. She often exposes paper to different natural effects such as sunlight or seawater.
In her work Gobic also uses books as art forms, in a way that she applies changes to existing books or uses advertising brochures, magazines and discarded books as raw materials in creation of new objects.

Sandra Vitaljic

Infertile Grounds is one of the series we decided to feature in order to present the distinct Croatian photographer Sandra Vitalji?. Photographs that appear to depict beautiful landscapes actually reveal stories about crime and horrors of war. In her work the author has captured the images of sites of executions and mass tombs. In another series, Beloved , provoked by newspaper headlines about the murders resulting from relationships, Vitalji? has presented the so-called supporting material, preparations of body parts with gunshot or stab wounds, which were once symbols of femininity.

In his creative solitude, this artist emphasizes the importance of contemplation, coexistence with nature, but also the necessity of a physical work which makes him feel better.
