Iztok Maroh: Staging of the Presented

Iztok Maroh: Staging of the Presented
25 February–19 March 2022

We kindly invite you to the opening of Iztok Maroh's solo exhibition entitled Staging of the Presented, which will take place on Friday, 25 February 2022 at 6 p.m. at the artKIT gallery.

Transparency, fragility. Iztok Maroh, who works as an artist, curator, and lecturer mainly in the field of artistic sculptural ceramics, in his continuous redefinitions of »artistic events«, explores the relationship between the visual, phenomenal world and human and how they deconstruct, establish, define and transform each other. What are the factors that condition these processes? What defines a person through observing an artwork and vice versa?

Iztok Maroh
(1976) obtained his master's degree from the University of Art and Industrial Design (UfG) in Linz in 2003. He first taught ceramics courses at the Famul Stuart School of Applied Arts in Ljubljana and was later an assistant professor at the Department of Industrial and Unique Design at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design Ljubljana, where he co-founded the Unique Design / Ceramics course. Between 2006 and 2011, he ran an open studio for contemporary ceramics in Maribor, where he organized exhibitions of contemporary ceramic production under his direction. He studied abroad several times, most recently in Istanbul. He is an active member of various associations, national and international juries, and co-founder of the ceramics section at ZDSLU, The Slovenian Association of Fine Arts Societies. In addition to his studio work, he also curates exhibitions in the field of fine arts and writes texts for exhibition catalogs and publications in the field of artistic ceramics and fine arts. Since 2018 he has been actively present in Vienna, where he is the project manager of Time for artists and the artistic director of the Migrart organization based in Vienna. He has exhibited independently and in group exhibitions at the Savin's Art Salon in Žalec, the Coastal Galleries in Koper, the Božidar Jakac Gallery in Kostanjevica na Krki, the Rotovž Exhibition Hall and the Maribor Art Gallery, the Gallery of Contemporary Art in Celje, the Bežigrad Gallery and Ljubljana Castle, at the 4.
