Light residence in Rijeka

The relationship between light and art installation in the five days of Light Residence and Art Show – Languages of Art Installations in Rijeka from January 20th to 24th, 2015.

This is the third step of the program of artistic residencies held in the countries involved in arTVision project, that feature young artists in training, students of the Academy of Fine Arts called to participate in the construction of five "art show" taught by internationally renowned artists, to multiply the visions and work together.

The Light Residence in Rijeka will be held at the Academy of Applied Arts (Slavka Krautzeka 83 - Trsat University Campus) and hosted by the Academy’s retired professor and renowned Croatian artist Goran Petercol.

After introduction, the participants will be presented with the teaching programs of Academy’s courses Scenography, Costume Design and Jewelry Design. The content of the workshop will also include a presentation of institutions  taking part in ArTVision project,  such as Primorje Gorski-Kotar County, Kanal Ri and MMSU, as well as institutions that the Academy of Applied Arts cooperates with in development of art and performance programs, such as the Ivan Zajc National Theatre.

The workshop includes five lectures with projections that are also the topics for the practical work.  The lectures discuss the processes of lighting:

•                Light makes things visible:

•                Illuminated area creates a form

•                Source of light has a form

•                Difference in amount of light

•                Light is colour

The practical work is based on the given topics, but starts from individual positions of the workshop participants. For the participants the aim is to realize that their previous creative experience is as valuable as the lecture topics. Each day a lecture topic is explored, individually or in teams. Bearing in mind that the duration of the workshop is quite short, it is important to note that the best results will probably not be achieved within that time, but later, in continuation of the process within regular classes.

The general aim of the workshop is to introduce the participants to the existing models of creation and offer them support in developing individual solutions. 

#03 Rijeka / Coexistence

#03 Rijeka: third stage of ART IN PORT - Coexistence: for a new Adriatic Koinè”

After the success of the first and second stages in Tirana at the Piramida and in Montenegro at the National Gallery in Cetinje, the city of Rijeka is going to welcome the third of the five stages of the contemporary art exhibition "ART IN PORT - Coexistence: for a new Adriatic Koine". It will open in Croatia, at the MMSU - Museum of Contemporary Art in Rijeka on November 20th at 8 pm and will involve artists from the five partner countries of the exhibition: Albania, Montenegro, Croatia, Italy (Veneto and Apulia). The next stage will be displayed in Venice and in Polignano a Mare in Italy, until March 2015.

Working together to give voice to art, to multiply its visions, to create a narration with many voices, connected together into a large Adriatic and transmedia network.

The exhibition is part of the project "arTVision. A live art channel" funded by the European IPA Adriatic CBC Programme 2007/2013, with the purpose to activate and connect the creative energy of young artists invited to participate as protagonists. It is an experimental project, led by Puglia Region - Area Policies for the Promotion of Territory, Knowledge and Talent, which involves: Pino Pascali Foundation Museum of Contemporary Art; Veneto Region - Direction of cultural and performance activities; Academy of Fine Arts of Venice; Ministry of Culture of Montenegro; Faculty of Dramatic Arts of Cetinje – Montenegro; Ministry of Culture of Albania; University of Arts of Tirana - Albania; Primorje-Gorski Kotar County –Croatia; Kanal RI - Croatia.

The core idea is to establish a strict dialogue among cross-border Nations through a set of cultural actions, aimed at finding out commonalities and discontinuities among peoples sharing the Mare Nostrum of the Adriatic Mediterranean.

One exhibition and five versions of it held in different locations and territories, to state the concept of a new linguistic Koinè, capable of translating territorial identities into the dynamics of relationship, open-mindedness and comparison. The artists from different geographical areas, coordinated by a team of curators, headed by the Pino Pascali Museum Foundation, in collaboration with the coordinators of the partner countries, have dealt with such shared topics as stories and narrations, myths and legends, spirituality and religions, migration and nomadism, with the aim to strengthen the idea of a common Europeanness which is too often forgotten.

The exhibition is curated by the critic and curator Marinilde Giannandrea, in close collaboration with Ksenija Orelj, curator of the Museum of Contemporary art in Rijeka.

Marina Kuveljic

In an interview with the artist Marina Kuveljic and a curator of the Contemporary Art Center of Montenegro, Ljiljana Karadzic, we talked about Marina's work called CONTINUA. Ljiljana presented the work from the perspective of an art historian, analyzing its segments and talking about the philosophy of the work itself, while Marina talked about the internal need to perform CONTINUA in a place such as Perjanicki dom, which is the chamber gallery of the Contemporary Art Centre.
