Carlo Fontana

Category: Art exhibitions

Time: From 02/06/2012 to 11/07/2012

The exhibited works, in a totally non conventional and descriptive developement, appear as a metaphore of a journey of light, of an extraordinary and thoughtful travel through the mysterious garden of the painting memory of this century. In effect, in these very pleasant and involving paintings, we see the bright colours of Matisse, the bursting scream of Braque, the ascetic silence of Mondrian, so much as to be able to say that they show the other side of the spiritual adventure of western man; not the disilluded, unrestrained, tragic, battered, horrified by the uncivilized state of a betrayed humanity that brought the iconic consumption of Giacometti and Bacon, but the sunny, positive, happy side that make Despina say in “Così fan tutte” how wise is “to eat the fig without discarding the apple”. This is the great dividing line separating the contemporary currents of thought: the ones optimistically looking to the future and the others seeing it sadly.
To the first the gift to smile at life, to the second the not enviable prize of consacrate maceration.
As such we can see his work as many-faceted, opening to a luxuriant world paradoxically symmetrical, we can call it “esprit de géometrie” or Platonism of forms, seen that the memory to hold the keystone is certainly not missing. Nothing fail facing the strenghth of resolution if not in the light of a telescopic lens: not direct and close by, but at a distance so that details can easily soften, getting lost in capricious and voluptuos trickles. The exuberance is positive: it gives joy and encourages the fearful of art, because the work of the Maestro has a special gift: in a direct and immediate way it succeeds to speak to the most simple as well as the most sophisticated mind.

Mladen Miljanovic: good night - state of body

Category: Art exhibitions

Time: From 31/07/2012 to 15/08/2012

After the New Museum in New York and the Mumok Museum in Vienna, Bosnian artist Mladen Miljanovic comes to Venice for his first Italian solo exhibition Good Night – State of Body at A plus A Slovenian Exhibition Centre. The exhibition will be presented next autumn in Regensburg and New York.
Mladen Miljanovic is one of the most interesting contemporary artists in the East European art scene. He was in fact chosen by Massimiliano Gioni for his triennial Younger than Jesus held at the New Museum in New York in 2009. After Ibro Hasanovic’s exhibition in November 2011, A plus A continues its exploration of Balkan art with Good Night – State of Body which features two works by Mladen Miljanovic: the film Do You Intend to Lie to Me? and the photographic work Show By Your Hand Where do You Feel Pain. During the opening, the artist will do the performance At the Edge of Margin, in which he will hang his body outside the gallery.
The powerful visual impact of Miljanovic’s work goes beyond the cliché of post-war Balkan art and it has had wide international appreciation. The artist takes as a starting point of reflection the reality that surrounds him. He creates original works that can simultaneously be disturbing and touching for their capacity to unravel truths in a very direct, almost brutal, way.
Mladen Miljanovic was born in 1981 in Zenica, an industrial city in Bosnia-Herzegovina, 70 km north from Sarajevo, and graduated from the Academy of Art in Banja Luka. In 2007 he receives the ZVONO price for best Bosnian young artist. Numerous international participations will follow, such as the Busan Biennal in South Korea in 2008, a show at Palazzo Forti in Verona, Italy, in 2009, the Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig Wien (MUMOK) in Wien in 2010 and the 53rd Belgrade October Salon in 2011.
The film Do you intend to lie to me? has been presented at Sarajevo Film Festival 2011. This work was conceived as an extreme gesture Miljanovic did as a gift to celebrate his colleague Veso SoviljÂ’s 30th anniversary of artistic career, which has been totally ignored by the Bosnian public opinion. The film seeks to reveal the truth about the brutality of life, art and responsibility in post war Bosnia. Members of a special police unit storm in a cafe, arrest a man and escort him to a police station in handcuffs, while the entire operation is monitored from above by helicopters. An interrogation ensues. The film and VesoÂ’s arrest proceed without VesoÂ’s knowledge of it.
The photographic work Show By Your Hand Where do You Feel Pain is an intimate yet shocking dialogue documentation between a married couple. The husband, an ex soldier in the Bosnian army, is deaf and completely disabled (PTSP, the consequence of the last Yugoslavian war). He communicates with his wife through a written diary in which he expresses his most private and personal needs. These photos face us with somebodyÂ’s daily brutal reality, and they open up to us with an unpleasant imagination of somebodyÂ’s state of body.
In Good Night – State of Body the artist urges us to reflect on the boundaries and the role of art. Can we accept a brutal action made in the name of art? How far can the artist push himself in the name of it?
