On Friday, 16.12 at 19, at the premises of the Academia Moderna Damir Fabijanić opens the exhibition "Compression of the AM Gallery"
The exhibition is open to the audience of 16. 12. to 23. 12. 2016.
Working hours of the gallery - from Tuesday to Saturday from 14 to 19 hours.
Accuracy, precision and elegance are the hallmarks of the gallery space not because of its snowy white walls but because of its purpose. The gallery gallery, the museum, is so "more ceremonial", because the idea of an exhibition dwells there during the exhibition.
Damir Fabijanic understands the gallery space as a place where he cares for the spirit, the mind and the artistic sensibility, emphasizing also that he does not work a chapel, a mausoleum. These photographs are not "shrines", they do not have a task to record the traces of the past or to suggest the possibilities of the future. Photographs of the gallery's gallery for the author are a personal duty, he says, to hommage to those who inhabit these walls, to artists and curators, paradoxically doing the dedication to themselves. The author wants to deny his own presence to the works, but his "pause" now becomes the main means of highlighting.
Fabijanic is here devoted to the artistic spirit, which for centuries in history has disproved existence. At the moment when the artist moved away from being the only hand of the line, the exhibition spaces became catalysts of artistic thinking. Fabianic exhibits "space in space," which is not exactly what we are now, the space of the gallery of the Academy of Modernism.
The first part of the photo cycle called Gallery Compression is exhibited in the Rigo Gallery in Novigrad 2010., And the same 4 was repeated in Dubrovnik later with the UGalerijaD Compression cycle as two of fourteen photographic cycles. In modern academy, he continues his series, though he does not want to fully disclose whether or not he will be next. The author himself says that he is doing his projects for himself and doing something else, and this powerful charge of individualism feels very much in his work and attitude. Fabianic brings a clear note of his own eye and a caught moment, testing himself how good a narrator is in a nearly conceptual photo manuscript. The author tells his own story, which in this case lies behind the lens. You will be fooled if you think it's about absenteeism, remember or maybe criticize a society that does not visit gallery spaces.
