Mitja Konić: Amor Fati

25. 09. 2020 – 06. 12. 2020

In the past years Mitja Konić have taken part in number of group exhibitions across Slovenia but currently he is more present and recognisable internationally. As an artist who lives and works in Munich, he perceives his mission directly from the painting ritual and he creates beyond political divisions, consumer culture, digital media and contemporary trends in visual arts. He focuses on the philosophical and intellectual relationship between human, nature and things. His contemplative artistic language is articulated with formal and semiotic elements while most of his effort is directed at his own artistic typologies.

The exhibition in the former monastery church, in which monumental canvasses prevail, reveals the core of Konić’s poetics. The dominating concept of his understanding of creativity is revealed already in the title of this exhibition and can be seen as the prevailing motif in some of the exhibited works. Konić views all actions between himself and the canvass, between self-reflection and external reality, as fate. He views the entire creative process, starting with the idea, continuing with the thought process, and ending in the selection and combination of materials, as alchemy. The final result is a painting that is a stunning intersection of various worlds, or, one could say, Konić’s intermediary world.
