Boris Beja: I Beg Your Pardon, I Never Promised You A Rose Garden
KiBela Gallery / MMC KIBLA
11 January 2019 – 9 February 2019
exhibition opening on Friday, 11 January 2019, at 7 p. m.

You are hereby cordially invited to attend the opening of this year's first exhibition at KiBela Gallery, "I Beg Your Pardon, I Never Promised You A Rose Garden" by Boris Beja.

The opening will take place on Friday, 11 January 2019, at 7 p. m. in KiBela, space for contemporary art, at the MMC KIBLA in Maribor.
 
The artistic practice of academy-trained sculptor Boris Beja builds on the concept of everydayness – everyday patterns as the link between life and art. "Rose Garden" is Beja's most recent project; it reminds us of the visual formality of arranging cut flowers into ikebana, which the artist explores as a pattern in sculpting and architecture, traditionally linked to notions of worshiping life and death: 'Ike' meaning 'alive' in Japanese, and 'bana' meaning 'flower'. It is therefore no surprise that flower arrangements ('Kado' in Japanese) serving as offerings occur as early as the seventh century, extending to the rest of the world later through Buddhism (which is also a source of this tradition).

Objects included in the exhibition were created by: Lea Osolnik, Cvetka Logar, Dušanka Kuhl, Lidija Globevnik, Lidija Drobež (the works were created at the sculpting studio of Pionirski dom, Center for Youth Culture Ljubljana).
