Exhibition: Tomaž Furlan: I MADE THIS
24. 09. 2021 - 27. 03. 2022

The exhibition presents the spatial works of Tomaž Furlan, a sculptor and multimedia artist who, in his artistic practice, often addresses the complex relationship of man to his own environment and to his everyday banalities. In his newer and completely new production, Furlan has created a series of objects with the help of which he directly, materially and self-reflectively deals with the social dynamics between the so-called civilized society and its most common aids. In the former monastery church, he displays a series of statues, installations and spatial interventions based on robust materials such as stone, terrazzo concrete, marble and wood.

Exhibition: Darije Petković: DAMNATIO MEMORIAE
08. 10. 2021 - 02. 01. 2022

The exhibition of the photographer and artist Darije Petković entitled Damnatio memoriae is dedicated to the way in which memory is constituted by visual means. Through the medium of photography, he shows his own view of the cultural landscape, which has been marked by numerous historical events and is inscribed in the collective memory depending on public and media discourses. The works from the present series lucidly monitor and comment on the consequences of the social, ideological and economic transition in Croatia and the wider region.
