Equilibrium by SofijaSilvia

19.03.2021. - 11.04.2021. / MSU galerija

 

SofijaSilvia has decided to name her exhibition Equilibrium, i.e. balance. Why Equilibrium? Because of the fact that the exhibited photographs, selected among her recent cycles such as Urban Animal (started in 2004), Pulsations (2015), About to Leave (2017), Dust to Dust (2018) or Sound of Water (2019) oppose the idea of a dualist division of our world into ‘nature’ and ‘culture’. By choosing subject matters which defy the anthropocentric logic of the early 21st century society, SofijaSilvia’s photographs underline the fact that the dimensions of the ‘natural’ and the ‘artificial’ are irreversibly and permanently interwoven, and in their connection SofijaSilvia seeks balance.

21.01.2021. - 01.04.2021. / Zbirka Richter

 

We kindly invite to the SintArt exhibition From Top to Bottom on Thursday, January 21, 2021, from 5 pm to 8 pm at Richter Collection.

The story of the legendary Zagreb firefighter Matija Juričić is the basis of the artistic work of Ištvan Išt Huzjan, through which he explores his own family history, observing it not only in a personal, but also in a symbolic way. The story of the famous Cathedral-Man, a relative who realised his noble life dream of saving people in danger, is preserved in the family history of Ištvan Išt Huzjan. In the 1930s the unemployed carpenter Matija Juričić, in order to show a high level of physical fitness and agility, climbed the tower of the cathedral and perform acrobatics. However, due to the strong wind, Juričić could not stay on the tower for long, and after a few poses started to climb down. Juričić's descent was accompanied by huge applause from the gathered crowd of citizens, but he was taken to the police station accompanied by a police officer.  Matija Juričić's greatest desire was soon realised and he was employed as a firefighter.
