Tina Mohorović: Crossings

19. 05. 2020 – 28. 06. 2020

The artist Tina Mohorović from Novo mesto is holding her first exhibition in the Božidar Jakac Art Museum. The title of the exhibition Crossings, is also the title of her latest series of prints, which she created in the beginning of this year. These prints mark a direct shift or continuation of the 2018 graphic prints series titled Anonyms.

Within the series Crossings, external spaces are reduced to a few selected details which represent a shift from external spaces towards the inner, personal space, i.e. towards the relationship of the individual with himself. When creating this series, the artist used the same graphic plates as she did for the series Anonyms, from which she isolated individual details and thus created new compositions.
With the use of the strong contrast between light and shadows, she created a game between the print’s positive and negative and shifted from the letterpress to the gravure printing technique.

Similar as in the black cube of a theatre, the artist shed light only on the scenes that she wished the visitors to focus on and ponder upon. The link with the theatre is no coincidence, for the artist also works as a set-designer. The experience of space, its design and movement within it, is one of the central themes of her creativity.

So far, the artist has reached the deepest with her latest series of drawings, collected in the series Ossifying. The drawings peek under the skin, the motifs are like an X-ray of a damaged human skeleton with imaginary bones, muscles and joints, in the interlacement of which new stories emerge and new fantasy worlds are opened.

The exhibition was created in cooperation between the Božidar Jakac Art Museum and the Velenje Gallery.

Curator: Kristina T. Simončič
