Lea Vidaković | Matija Debeljuh

4 – 30.5.2019.

Otvaranje: subota, 4.maj u 19 sati

Zajednička izložba autorke čiji radovi pripadaju mediju lutka animacije i autora čiji  radovi su najbliži oblasti eksperimentalnog filma, realizuje se na predlog saveta galerije. Reč je o još jednom u nizu kustoskih pristupa tokom kojeg se povezuju umetnici koji se nisu poznavali i prepoznaje mogućnost saradnje u daljem radu.

Baveći se preispitivanjem i kreiranjem vremenskih i prostornih odnosa, oboje zapravo pružaju jednu moguću vizuelizaciju narativa tokom procesa nastanka radova. Kako proširiti referencijalne prostore filma, videa i animacije i kada je reč o procesu rada ali i kada je reč o prezentaciji?

Lea Vidaković naglasak stavlja na ljudske likove, njihove odnose i emotivna stanja, dajući prostoru veoma važnu ulogu kada je reč o narativu. Unutrašnji prostor animacije razvija se zajedno sa galerijskim u kojem su lutke i onim u svesti posmatrača u kojem nastaju individualne interpretacije slika.

Animirani triptih Sestre pobuđuje atmosferu tradicionalnih flamanskih slika, gde se sestre zatočene u melahnoliji suočavaju sa prazninom i tugom koja proizilazi zbog one koja nedostaje. Minijatura napuštene sobe, u koju mogu proviriti jedino posetioci izložbe, s obzirom da se sestre pred njom uvek zaustavnjaju i nikada u nju ne ulaze, postaje ključ za čitanje sva tri filma. Anatomija zagrljaja smeštena je u ambijent vojvođanske porodice s početka 19. veka. Prikazuje zagrljaj dva brata, ali ostavlja otvoreno polje za učitavanje emocija, s obzirom da ovaj izdvojeni detalj može biti povezan sa radošću i/ili tugom i samo je jedan segment iz vremenskog mozaika Porodičnih portreta. Posmatrači lako postaju deo naracije u kojoj učestvuju kroz emotivnu aktivnost i duboku introspekciju.

S druge strane Matija Debeljuh Studiju za gubilište gradi kroz niz vizuelnih beležaka koje su nastajale tokom priprema za film, za koji je kao fleksibilni literarni predložak poslužio istoimeni roman Mirka Kovača. Narativ filma postaje mesto susreta u kojem se sažima prošlo, sadašnje i buduće i to kroz likove starca, odraslog muškarca i dečaka, koji zapravo predstavljaju mesto refleksije o protoku vremena, promenama, nostalgiji i sećanju, a sve to u različitim enterijerima koji na simbolički način reprezentuju neki trenutak ili razdoblje u životu protagonista.

Delovi prostorne instalacije povezani su elementima građevinske skele koja kao fizička i simbolička konstrukcija definiše prostor i naglašava strukturu celokupnog ambijenta rada. Pažnja se usmerava na atmosferu i doživljaj samog dela, na načine izlaganja i recepcije kao i na kompleksne odnose savremenog subjekta u medijatiziranom prostoru i vremenu.

Lea Vidaković (1983., Subotica) je multimedijalna umetnica koja radi na području animiranih instalacija i proširenih medija, primenjujući tehniku lutka filma.

Trenutno je doktorant na smeru animacije na Fakultetu za umetnost, dizajn i medije na Nanyang Technological University u Singapuru. Njeno istraživanje u području animiranog filma zasniva se na temi fragmentiranih i drugih alternativnih tipova narativa za animacije i proširene medije pokretnih slika. Izlagala je na brojnim grupnim i samostalnim izložbama, festivalima animiranog filma i konferencijama. Dobitnica je više umetničkih i filmskih nagrada.

Lea Vidaković | Matija Debeljuh

May 4 – 30, 2019

Opening: Saturday, May 4 at 7 p.m.

The joint exhibition of the author whose works belong to the medium of puppet animation and the author whose works are closest to the field of experimental film is held on the proposal of the Gallery Council. It is another in a series of curatorial approaches, where artists who have not known each other connect and a possibility for cooperation in the future is recognized.

Through re-examining and creating temporal and spatial relationships, they both actually provide a possible visualization of the narrative during the process of creating works of art. How to extend the referential spaces of film, video and animation not only in the process of work, but also in the presentation?

Lea Vidaković puts emphasis on human characters, their relationships and emotional states, giving a very important role to space when it comes to narrative. The inner space of the animation develops together with the gallery space, in which the puppets are, and that in the minds of the viewers, in which individual interpretations of the images occur.

The animated triptych Sisters invokes the atmosphere of old Flemish paintings, where sisters, seized by melancholy, are facing the emptiness and sadness over the missing one. The miniature of an abandoned room into which only the exhibition visitors can peep, since the sisters always stop in front of it and never enter it, becomes the key to reading all three films. Anatomy of a Hug is placed in the atmosphere of a Vojvodina family from the beginning of the 19th century. It shows a hug of two brothers, but leaves an open field to load emotions, since this isolated detail can be associated with joy and/or sadness, and is just a segment of the Family Portraits mosaic. The viewers easily become part of the narration in which they participate through emotional activity and deep introspection.

Matija Debeljuh, on the other hand, builds A Study for Scaffold through a series of visual notes made during the preparations for the film, for which Mirko Kovač’s novel under the same title was a flexible literary template. The film’s narrative becomes a meeting place where the past, present and future condense through the characters of an old man, an adult man and a boy, who, actually, represent a place of reflection about the flow of time, changes, nostalgia and memory, all in different interior spaces, symbolically representing a moment or period in the life of the protagonists.

The parts of the spatial installation are linked with elements of construction scaffolding that, as a physical and symbolic structure, defines the space and emphasizes the structure of the entire work setting. The attention is directed to the atmosphere and the experience of the work itself, to the ways of presentation and reception, as well as to the complex relationships of the contemporary subject in the mediatized space and time.

Lea Vidaković (1983, Subotica, Serbia) is a multimedia artist who works in the field of animated installations and extended media, using the technique of puppet film. She completed animation studies at the HVO Volda University College in Norway, graduated from the Graphic Arts and Painting Department of the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb and obtained her MA in audio-visual arts from the Royal Academy of Arts, KASK, Belgium. Currently, she is a PhD candidate in animation at the School of Art, Design and Media of the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. Her research in the field of animated film is based on the topic of fragmented and other alternative types of narratives for animations and extended media of moving images. She has presented her work at many group and solo exhibitions, animated film festivals and conferences and won a number of art and film awards.
