You are hereby kindly invited to join us for an unforgettable esthetic experience created by the well-trained eye of Maribor's legendary photographer Miran Mišo Hochstätter.
The opening of the photographic exhibition POKRAJINE / LANDSCAPES – photographs, dreams and memories will take place on Friday, 14 September, at 7 p. m., at the artKIT exhibition space in Maribor, Glavni trg 14.
The exhibition of works by Miran Mišo Hochstätter aka Maestro features a newly created series of digital photographs. Because of the effects of light and shadows, the images created in the photographs appear as though they are subtly merging man and landscape into a unified, Arcadian whole. Et in Arcadia ego, Virgil's epitaph marking Hochstätter's photographs like a classic memento mori, acts first as a reminder of the transient nature of life, yet at the same time it idealizes that same kind of life into a blissful pastoral paradise, a symbol of complete and attainable happiness. Nina Jeza, exhibition curator
