“Dajana Durić is an artist yet unbeknownst to the Slovenian audience. However, since her artistic language is original and perfected, she will certainly attract the public with her exhibition in Alkatraz Gallery. She does not conceal her interests under the veil of poetics, she prefers to articulate them clearly: she likes to arrange spaces that allow the presentation of situations representing transience of human moods and the multi-layeredness of memories. The spaces that she constructs are distinguished not only by their visual sensibility, but also by the strong presence of scent, sound and sensation which contribute to a more active perception of the exhibition.
It is interesting to observe how her artistic message is not shaped only by the imagination and an original multi-layered creativity, but also diligent work, always the result of the long process of the birth of an art piece. Her exhibitions require several months or even years of creation, the Residence Of The Void project took a year to complete – a tenacious work thus represents an important component of her artistic language.
The site-specific installation, exhibited in our gallery, will be composed of 72 canvases in the dimension of 60×60 cm, onto which a collage made from tea bags will be attached, and which, during the exhibition, scatter on the floor, thus changing the arrangement of the installation in the gallery.” – galerijalkatraz.org
You are kindly invited to the opening of the exhibition Residence Of The Void by Dajana Durić on 10 February, Friday at 8 pm at Alkatraz Gallery.
On display: 10 February 2017 – 3 March 2017
