Viktor Bernik: Birthday


On Friday, 23rd of March at 8:30 pm you are kindly invited to attend an event by Viktor Bernik. The event titled “Birthday” is conceived as an artist’s response to the exhibition Institution. A Case Study and organized as part of the accompanying programme.


For Viktor Bernik »art is a set of glasses that brake the ordinary view of the world, and the viewer can then use this new freedom/optic as a possibility for changing the perspective«. Already as a seventeen-year-old, Bernik believed that the best medium for art is life, that his life will become art. Even though life never became art, the yearning still persists, says Bernik, whose statement can be of use when approaching his works, current and past.

Goran Petercol: Hierarchical rows


14.9. – 5.10.2017

You are kindly invited to the guied tour of the show on Wednesday, 27th September, and the artist talk on Thursday, 5th October at 6 pm.

“If art is one of the activities of materialisation of thought, it implies complete, confined articulations in form. For Petercol, materialisation of thought is always the starting point for a situation in which the artist’s role is a unique control of matter. This control is in fact self-control, for Petercol does not create ex nihilo, but rather takes as his starting point objects and processes of “neutral”, non-expressive value, which he introduces into the field of art. Control of the situation in fact means control of one’s own input, one’s own contribution. This asceticism is visible immediately: lines, points, simple geometrical shapes (projections of light or objects) are in fact the only building blocks of hierarchical rows. Similar (formal) simplicity characterises row as a mathematical principle. And yet, we find ourselves in front of installations, where despite the recognition of this simplicity our experience hits the wall. What stops us? And how can we circumvent this?”
