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.
