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?

Rajmund Kocbek

Category: Art exhibitions

Time: From 12/12/2012 to 12/01/2013

The 12th December 2012 the A plus A Slovenian Exhibition Center will host the exhibition Preludes of the slovenian artist Rajmund Kocbek, presented previously at the Mestn galleria of Pirano.
Rajmund Kocbek has been a figurative-abstract, figurative-mystic painter from over thirty years despite the rarity of his public exhibitions.
His works are characterized by their introspectiveness, their intense brushmarks ment as a ritual, as an intimate movement that portrays dissimilar, rarefied bodies.
The bodies portrayed by Kocbek are suggestive - they do not speak of specific people but of the individual man as a shape, as a metric matter, as part of the world. His works recall the habit of quick-drawing with charcoal and pastel crayons, as if the works were just the base study instead of the final work. Their sketchiness becomes all-bearing in Kocbeks works; the feeling of the unfinished, of the mystery which is yet to be explored, the lack of details backed up by this sense of mysticism, as a piece of us that remains after death.
The "kocbekian" figures sustain one another, they tangle up, they try to have a contact between themselves and between the world that surrounds them, with the canvas defining and limited but intense radius of action. The bodies are frequently facing downwards as if in search of a lost self, of a reason-of-being in a life that does not fully satisfy them - an interior discomfort is manifested in these edgy, nervous, unnatural poses that convey memories of ancient religious paintings where pain, compassion and judgement bring alive the grudges of human kind. The neutral and abstract background is preternatural as the rarefied emptiness that acts as background of thoughts, dreams and contemplation of reality in the landscape of the mind.
Rajmund Kocbek was born the 20th January 1952 in Maribor. After graduating in fine arts at the Academy of Fine Arts of Lubiana with the professors G. Stupica, Š. Planinc and J. Bernik, he moves in Capodistria in 1981. During the course of years he participated to various collective and individual exhibitions in the Galleries of Piran (Meduza 2, Mestna) and of Kofer (Meduza, Loža).
