Boris Jesih: Connections

30. 11. 2017–11. 3. 2018

Public guided tour of the exhibition
Thursday, 18 January at 5 pm.: conducted by Nevenka Šivavec, Director of MGLC

Boris Jesih (1943) established himself as an artist at the end of the 1960s as part of the expressive figuration circle of painters. Under the influence of pop art, he responded to the characteristics of the spirit of the time with his geometric transformation of everyday objects, later also turning predominantly to landscape. As a printmaker, he excels in the techniques of relief printing and flat printing, with superior results in colour lithography. As a prize winner of the 13th International Biennial of Graphic Arts in 1979 (special prize for a young artist), he attracted attention with his series of lithographs, a set of which is part of the MGLC collection. Beside the lithographs, the retrospective exhibition also presents drawings, paintings and photographs, which highlight the connections between his creative process and his works.

Guided tour of the exhibition Connections by Boris Jesih

TODAY

Thursday, 18 January, at 5 pm.
conducted by Nevenka Šivavec, Director of the International Centre of Graphic Arts

The tour will be an attempt to gain an insight into the understanding of the connection of the artist's work with the concurrent state of society, which is latently (rather than directly) present in Jesih's creative process.

In his vision, contemporary man is losing his original connection to nature, since the development of civilization has alienated his understanding of its secret powers, their connection as well as possession. This experience has been replaced by the artificial, culturally conditioned perception of the natural environment. Jesih visually separates nature from the viewer, doing so by placing signs – obstacles in front of the illusion of the landscape and in front of the viewer. These are the artist's internal reactions to social events, to everything that disturbs him when he gazes through the window of his studio, where nature awakens into quiet mornings, whereas the reality of people in other places on Earth is completely different. His works are witnesses and a document of today's understanding of the world and man's role in it.
