ARCHITECTURE. SCULPTURE. REMEMBRANCE. IN NOVIGRAD

Muzej-Museo Lapidarium 

in collaboration with DESSA Gallery (Ljubljana) and Miroslav Kraljević Gallery (Zagreb)

 

Architecture. Sculpture. Remembrance.: The Art of Monuments of Yugoslavia 1945–1991

 

The opening of the exhibition will be on Saturday, July 10, 2021, at 9 pm in Museum Lapidarium.

 

 

In the architecture and art of ex-Yugoslavia, the timeless monuments to the victims of the People's Liberation War stand out. They were designed by Yugoslav architects and sculptors of the highest profile, such as Bogdan Bogdanović, Edvard Ravnikar, Vojin Bakić, Dušan Džamonja, Zdenko Kolacio and many others. Instead of the regime's symbolism, their creations combined the present, the past, mystique, the elements of antique necropolises, ethnography and spatial poetics. On the basis of high architectural and artistic value of the structures and the exceptional contemplative qualities of the spatial designs, the Slovenian curators selected 33 monuments and memorial complexes from all the republics and autonomous provinces of ex-Yugoslavia. This was no easy task as the said territory contains many more exceptional memorial creations. The exhibition, showed in 2020, was prepared in collaboration with experts – authors, photographers and institutions from the ex-Yugoslav region and beyond, which has also laid the foundation for future co-operation.

 

With the extension of Ljubljana exhibition in 2020, the Museum Lapidarium added some more Croatian monuments, ie. from Pod Beram (Istria), Labin (Istria) and the Memorial Park Dotrščina, Zagreb. In addition to aesthetic and structural innovation, they are further enhanced by the unique, contemporary and advanced artistic language of their creators. Furthermore, the exhibition in Museum Lapidarium is accompanied by original drawings and sketches for Jasenovac's "Stone Flower “ by Bogdan Bogdanović, a database catalogue of the Croatian monuments by Sanja Horvatinčić (2017), the award-winning documentary film 'Monument' by Igor Grubić, and the documentary film 'The Art of Memory' by Jelena Radenović.  In addition, we present a special publication 'Architecture. Sculpture. Remembrance. The Art of Monuments of Yugoslavia 1945–1991', published by the Dess Gallery and the AB magazine - Architect's Bulletin, Ljubljana, 2020.

 

With this exhibition we want to encourage the general public, the local population and those responsible, to a mature and respectful assessment of the artistic, architectural and semantic value of these remarkable spatial sculptures, and thus for their maintenance and preservation. The monuments permanently mirror the past, life and death. And the dignity of memory.

 

 

The exhibition is open until August 18, 2021. It can be viewed every day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m, except Sundays and holidays.

ima zadovoljstvo pozvati vas na izložbu

Arhitektura. Skulptura. Sjećanje. Umjetnost spomenika Jugoslavije 1945.–1991.

 

Otvorenje izložbe u subotu, 10. srpnja 2021 u 21 sat u Muzeju Lapidarium.

 

 

U arhitekturi i umjetnosti svih kulturnih prostora nekadašnje Jugoslavije ističu se bezvremenski spomenici žrtvama narodnooslobodilačke borbe. Njihovi su autori bili najpoznatiji jugoslavenski arhitekti, urbanisti i kipari, poput Bogdana Bogdanovića, Edvarda Ravnikara, Vojina Bakića, Dušana Džamonje, Zdenka Kolacija i mnogih drugih. Umjesto režimske simbolike u svojim autonomnim ostvarenjima  isprepleli su suvremenost i prošlost, mističnost i geometriju, arhetipske simbole i nove materijale, arhitekturu i krajobraznu poetiku, historijsku auru mjesta i nove oblike komunikacije s posjetiteljem.

 

Izložba, koja je prvo predstavljena u Ljubljani u Galeriji Dessa (2020), prikazuje 33 spomenika i/ili memorijalnih kompleksa iz svih republika i autonomnih pokrajina Jugoslavije odabranih na temelju visoke arhitektonske i umjetničke vrijednosti objekata te iznimne kontemplacije krajobraznog prostora. Toj izložbi u Muzeju Lapidarium, dodana su tri spomenika: Spomenik – kosturnica Vladimira Gortana (Pod Beram), Spomenik rudaru borcu (Labin) i Spomen-park Dotrščina (Zagreb), čime dopunjujemo korpus memorijale spomeničke baštine. Osnovne su značajke toga korpusa, pored visokih umjetničkih dosega, je i međuodnos konstruktivnih elemenata spomenika i njegova suodnosa  spram prirodnoga krajolika. Iz perspektive spomeničke skulpture nakon Drugog svjetskog rata, upravo su jugoslavenski spomenici jedan od najdojmljivijih monumentalnih ostvarenja. To potvrđuje i izložba  Toward a Concrete Utopia: Architecture in Yugoslavia, 1948–1980, održana u njujorškoj MoMI 2018./2019., na kojoj su Spomenik Monuments zauzeli istaknuto mjesto. 

 

Izložbu u Novigradu-Cittanovi prate  originalni crteži i skice Bogdana Bogdanovića za jasenovački „Cvijet“, izdvojeni pano o radu i djelima Zdenka Kolacija i Zdenka Sile,   kataloška baza podataka spomenika autorice Sanje Horvatinčić (2017), višestruko nagrađivani dokumentarni film Igora Grubića Spomenik (2015) te dokumentarni film Jelene Radenović Umetnost sećanja (2019).

 

Osim toga predstavljamo i posebnu publikaciju Arhitektura. Skulptura. Spomin. Umetnost spomenikov Jugoslavije 1945–1991./Architecture. Sculpture. Remembrance. The Art of Monuments of Yugoslavia 1945–1991, izdavača Galerije Dessa i revije AB – Arhitektov bilten/Architect's Bulletin, Ljubljana, 2020. 

 

 

Izložba je otvorena do 18. kolovoza 2021. Može se razgledati svaki dan od 10 do 13 i od 19 do 22 sata, osim nedjelje i praznika.
