Research project, Instalations, Performances

2014 2015

EKS BAUHAUS PROJECT results from the  Bauhaus School curriculum research. The project aims to compile and review the current position of the artist, student, institutional support and the market through teaching the practices and system of Bauhaus ideology. The artistic team compiled of six artists — Nino Bokan, Dora Đurkesac, Martina Granić, Karla Paliska, Vesna Rohaček, Irena Tomašić — desires to  open up a dialogue on how to apply some of these principles on systems which surround us today and to examine the impacts resulting from these ideologies on these communities. A series of works created throughout 2014 – 2105, as part of this research, will be performed and/or exhibited as part of  the Bauhaus Exhibition (Bauhaus – Networking Ideas and Practice — BAUNET)  in 2015 at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb and Zagreb Dance Center.

SPECTRA — Installation that examines the structural laws of color spectrum and the ability of its mixing and changing. It shows the light breaking through the sculptural form of glass prisms, which are projecting a range of colors on the surrounding walls in different constellations. Visitors can rotate the pedestal of installation and this affects the schedule change,  initiating color mixing and their positions in the spectrum, and this motion perceptionally runs the entire surrounding visual area.

IN SITU deals with research of conceptions of space.Through discovering its layers we seek new ways of perceiving it, its correlation between experience and materiality, subjectivity, rhythm, movement, its totality and fragments. What can be defined as space... Starting from the nature of experiencing space that consist of the fragmentary perception or lack of perception of the whole, we are deepening views on those fragments to gain insight into new wholes.
