GRAVITY & LEVITY la Galeria 26




GALERIA 26
(Bucuresti str. dr. Staicovici nr. 26) te invita in perioada 26.05.2006 si 28.05.2006 la expozitia
Gravity and Levity.
Artisti: Leona Dodig, Mark Brogan si Deja Grba.

Showing in Gallery 26 in Bucharest from the 26 of May will be the British artists Mark Brogan and Leona Dodig and the Serbian artist Dejan Grba. All are now based and work in Belgrade. The work of each artist is a personal perspective on the experience of Balkan culture and its recent politics. Mark Brogan, born in London, has lived in Belgrade since 2004. Leona Dodig, born in Belgrade, moved to London in the early nineties and returned to Belgrade in 2004. Dejan Grba has lived and worked in Belgrade through the conflict and its aftermath. In Serbian, to say "To je to!" is to say "That is that!" End of story. A very definitive __expression, given the context.

Pozdrav,
Mark Brogan


Comunicat de presa

Gravitatie si Inconstanta este o expozitie ai carei
autori sint artistii Leona Dodig, Mark Brogan si Deja
Grba.
Gravitatia din titlul expozitiei este o metafora a
nevoii de apartenenta, aceea de a avea o simpla
identitate nationala; Inconstanta reprezinta
perspectiva privitorului, nevoia distantei critice si
a pozitiei independente de agent liber intr-o lume
globalizata.

Lucrarile video de Leona Dodig reprezinta o scena
onirica de echilibru, mergand pe un castel din carti
de joc. Opera lui Dejan Grba este construita din
auto-portrete
fotografice facute in fiecare zi dintr-un an,
transformate intr-o animatie cu ajutorul unui efect de
morphing. Sculptura lui Mark Brogan cu un zid stacojiu
de cartonase este facut din acelasi plastic rosu din
care sunt facute cartonasele rosii de fotbal UEFA.

Proiectul trateaza experienta multiculturala prin
intermediul sculpturii, video-ului si animatiei. Mark
Brogan este un artist nascut in Marea Britanie si
stabilit in prezent in Belgrad, Leona Dodig este
nascuta in Belgrad, a studiat la Londra si este
stabilita acum in Londra si Belgrad, Deja Grba este
nascut si stabilit in Belgrad.

Lucrarile din expozitie se confrunta cu reflectii
asupra evenimentelor politice si istorice prin
intermediul opticii personale, din trei puncte
diferite de vedere.


Orele de vizita: 18:00 _ 22:00
intre 26.05.2006 si 28.05.2006

P R E S S R E L E A S E
Gravity and Levity is an exhibition whose authors are the artists Leona Dodig, Mark Brogan and Dejan Grba.
'Gravity' of the exhibition's title is here a metaphor for the need to belong, to have a simple national identity; 'levity' represents an observational perspective, the need for a critical distance and independent position of a 'free agent' in the globalised world.
Leona Dodig's video represents a dream-like scene of balancing and walking on a house of cards. Dejan Grba's work is constructed from photographic self-portraits taken every day for one year, which have been morphed into an animation. Mark Brogan's sculpture of a crimson wall of card is in fact made from the same red plastic as the official UEFA football referee red card.
Project also deals with the multicultural experience through sculpture, video and animation. Mark Brogan is a British-born artist, currently based in Belgrade, Leona Dodig was born in Belgrade, studied in London and is now based in London and Belgrade, Dejan Grba was born and based in Belgrade.
The works in the exhibition deal with reflections of the political and historical events through personal optics, from three different vantage points.

The gallery opening times are:
18:00 _ 22:00
26.05.2006 _ 28.05.2006
