Vlatka Škoro: Half a Human, Paul Newman and the Pack

Vlatka Škoro: Half a Human, Paul Newman and the Pack
4 March–9 April 2022

We kindly invite you to the opening of the sculptor Vlatka Škoro's solo exhibition entitled Half a Human, Paul Newman and the Pack, which will take place on Friday, 4 March 2022, at 7 p.m. in KiBela.


Vlatka Škoro is one of the most respected and awarded Croatian artists. The animal sculptures she has devoted herself to in recent years fill us with a certain homeliness and even humanism. A more profound insight reveals their characters, a subtle psyche that weaves some minor malice into sympathy despite the realistic appearance. Pack, a group of 10 sculptures of the African wild dog, conceptually gathered around Alpha, fascinates her because of their social order and social ties. Above all, it is the only breed of dog that is impossible to tame, whereas the golden hedgehog, a massive anthropomorphic creature whose human-animal traits may evoke irony or seem bizarre. Still, they carry a message about the world and humans and their symbiosis and our responsibility to nature in their fascination.

Vlatka Škoro (1987, Osijek) lives and works in Zagreb. In 2010 she received an M.A. in Sculpture from the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb, in the class of professor Stjepan Gračan. In 2018 she earned her Ph.D. in Sculpture from the Academy of Fine Arts, in the class of prof. Peruško Bogdanić and prof. Leonida Kovač. She has exhibited in ten solo and twenty group exhibitions in Croatia and participated in numerous workshops and festivals. In 2010 she received the Erste Grand Prix for the sculpture Indigo Child, and in 2020 the HDLU Zagreb Award for the best young artist. She currently lives and works in Zagreb.

Admission is free. You can attend the event in accordance with the NIPH recommendations.
