Metka Kavčič: Breakaway

Metka Kavčič: Breakaway
KiBela, 14 June–12 July 2019
Friday, 14 June 2019, at 7 p. m. – exhibition opening

Summer brings more than just warmth, it is also an opportunity to visit an array of cultural events. You are hereby cordially invited to attend a heat-committed, scorching hot tin opening ceremony of Breakaway, an exhibition of art works by renowned Slovene sculptor Metka Kavčič, on Friday, 14 June 2019, at 7 p. m., at KiBela Gallery at the MMC KIBLA in Maribor.


Metka Kavčič is well known for her unique industrial sculpting style that instills a softness of forms and visually reincarnates rough, raw materials like bronze or metal into seemingly fragile sculptures, soft as fabric, or transparent as lace. At the KiBela Gallery in Maribor, the artist is presented with a project in which the visitors are taken from their urban homes into the nearby forest, into nature, and into the world, by means of a visual-sonic narrative. The exhibition is a commentary on the challenging forms of modern living environments that are routinely saturated with aggressive, unnatural sounds, and a breakaway from them requires an escape into rural areas, which are to provide the individual, if that's at all possible in today's world, with tranquility and relaxation. 

Metka Kavčič's Breakaway thus becomes a disconnection: an escape from the hubbub of civil society, a retreat to solitude and – especially! – an explicit esoteric experience of silence, or at least quietude, which has virtually disappeared.
