EXHIBITIONS / 6 – 9, July, 2017 / TOWER D, II FLOOR
VANDA KREUTZ / INVISIBLE
The work Invisible is an installation which uses technical possibilities of digital and analogue devices affirming their mistakes (glitches). Using the glitches the artist creates an interplay of light and sound which changes organically.
Vanda Kreutz was born in 1990 in Zagreb. In 2017 she graduated in New media at the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb. She works in experimental film, animation and photography.
VLADIMIR FRELIH AND DRAGAN MATIĆ / SIFONIJA
In the exhibition Syphony, comprised of several performative video works, a man always appears in the forefront (one of the authors of the video), in a different, previously conceived situation, set in a specific place. Whether it is the panting of rocks with water or banging on the remains of house in the water using a crane, the initial concept points to the aesthetics of nonsense, the insane actions, often in a funny way, emphasize the absurdity of human activity, connected to the social and political reality.
