Shifts and revelations
Exhibition & art work presentation
artKIT, Glavni trg 14, Maribor

HDLU Zagreb in collaboration with ACE KIBLA Maribor
29 January 2017 – 11 February 2017

The opening and presentation of works from the exhibition titled Shifts and revelations took place on Friday, 10 February at 6 p. m. at arKIT, Glavni trg 14, Maribor. The exhibition featured a presentation of the results created during the two-week creative sessions by young guests from Croatia and local mentors/artists.  

The exhibition showcases works by students from the School of Applied Arts Rijeka:
Doroti Čanak, Emilly Komadina, Josip Zrinšćak, Karla Matić, Patrik Veršićin, and the Secondary School of Applied Arts and Design Pula: Ana Savić, Lucija Opačak, Myra Rivera, Valentina Spajić. They will be presenting the process of creating artworks, which were constructed under the mentorship of Saša Bezjak, BFA, Aleksandra Farazin, professor of art education, Metka Kavčič, BFA, and Jasna Kozar, BFA.

Movements (shifts) are the essence of creation. Hand movements, body shifts; the fluidity and flexibility of ideas is what makes the world go round. This is why we sometimes say that things need to move from a dead end point or a standstill. Creation is a foundation of knowledge (realization, revelation). Creation is most often related to experience, which is why collaboration is all the more important: it is a challenge to both mentors and students; a shift from the everyday routine; a chance to work side-by-side in a creative environment. The new millennium is increasingly becoming an age of shifts, of social, economic and technological migrations we can hardly keep up with in the abundance of news and novelties. And if such shifts/movements are the essence of creativity, and creativity lies at the core of realizations, then we can hope also for a shift within the contemporary mindset     
– from a closed society towards an open-mindedness of the mind and spirit.
