Apoteka – Space for Contemporary Art at Galženica gallery
In the period between 2014 and 2017, Apoteka – Space for Contemporary Art from Vodnjan conceived a programme around the research of “temporary encounters”. During that period, over ten exhibitions of various formats and dynamics were held. The exhibitions explored the exhibition format and the conditions and possibilities of exhibition practices. Due to the inaccessibility of a larger space for organizing more complex exhibition formats, “Temporary Encounters” were held as an “exhibition throughout time”. Thus, it comes across as a loosely connected unit and form of an intervention, an exhibition which is not understood as a “fixed and complete constellation”.
The exhibition presents several artistic positions and practices, while the artworks are produced in various media, such as video, animation, installation, object, spatial intervention, collage, photography. The participants belong to, more-or-less, the same generation of artists from Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia, Austria, United Kingdom, Slovakia – Igor Eškinja, Damir Očko, Vlatka Horvat, Tina Gverović, Siniša Ilić, Dino Zrnec, Nick Oberthaler, Jasmina Cibic, Mladen Stropnik, Marko Tadić, Petra Feriancova, Marko Lulić…. The exhibition in the Galženica Gallery aims to give an overview of the exhibitions from Apoteka’s programme by (re)activating its artworks in a new context, within a group exhibition, to test them and examine their effects and discourses when decontextualized, displaced from a programmatic framework – Branka Bencic, from the catalogue
