MGLC - Tivoli Mansion
The exhibition presents large-format prints in the techniques of engraving and drypoint, created in recent years and mostly presented to the public for the first time. They reflect the artist's understanding of the creative process as a spontaneous, organic development of the preparation of the matrix, which materialises in an impression on paper or, for the first time, in bronze.
Adrijan Praznik: --WHERE OUR HEARTS HAVE LED US…
7. 1.−13. 2. 2022
Adrijan Praznik plays various roles in the world of art – he is a painter, illustrator, curator, producer and artistic director of Simulaker Gallery in Novo mesto. In January 2022, he completed a two-year artist residency at MGLC Švicarija. Upon his departure, he prepared the exhibition --WHERE OUR HEARTS HAVE LED US... The spatial installation of two large-scale paintings raises questions that illustrate his work and research focus in 2021 particularly. Namely, he is concerned with the form and status of the artwork, the appropriation of the media image and the combination of pictorial means of expression (the monochromatic use of colour, the aesthetic and poetic image of words) as well as materials (fabric on canvas, objecthood of the canvas).
Adriena Šimotová: Encounter. Touch and Imprint.
Adriena Šimotová (1926–2014) is one of the most acclaimed figures in Czech visual art. This selective retrospective at MGLC features artworks in which Šimotová radicalized the existentially conceived topic of the human personality while engaging in an earnest determination of the conditions and relationships she found relevant. She perceived her work as an open communicative relationship, with its ethical and spiritual conditionality and ontological correlations of particular importance. In this context, the artist’s exquisite array of methods and vehicles of expression allowed her to explore and reflect on touch and imprint, aspects she understood as integral to the articulation of her authentic artistic statement. Reflecting on the relationship between touch and imprint, she worked with a keen awareness of her own and other people’s corporeality.
