Aleksij Kobal - painting exhibition

On Friday the 8th of June 2007 at 8pm you were kindly invited to MMC KIBLA to attend the opening of a painting exhibition by Aleksij Kobal.

“In 1999 Aleksij Kobal exchanged the classical painting surface for a more unusual one- the mirror that he still studies today. On one hand the mirror is just a surface with the help of which the visitor can be incorporated into the painting. On the other it serves as a transparent screen, behind which the found objects that help the visitor to decipher Kobal’s stories are hidden. In the last few years the mirror has also become a surface on which the artist etches the images.
Aleksij Kobal’s works will lead the visitors through some of the most current political issues and through silent noise of the universe on one side and from the dark mysticism of Goya to the post modern Duchamp cynicism on the other.“
(Petja Grafenauer Krnc)

The exhibition was opened until the 9th of July.
