Herman Pivk: Photography + Dane Zajc: Poetry

14. 10.−2. 11. 2014, MGLC Lecture Room

The exhibition is dedicated to the 85th anniversary of the birth of Dane Zajc.

Works by a renowned Slovenian visual artist, characterized by a very unique type of photography, and one of the most important Slovenian writers of the second half of the 20th century will be presented in the exhibition. The poems created before the poet’s death during 2000−2004 were inspired by the photographs of Herman Pivk. The joint work is the result of the symbiosis between the two artists, who have in their own unique way shed light on our view of life and death.
