On Wednesday, March 14, 2018, at 19.00 at Bežigrad Gallery 1 we are opening "Andrej Trobentar: I construct a painting as a building in space" exhibition. The exhibition of drawings and tempera paintings is one of now rare solo shows by the artist, who was already making important artworks in the 1970s.
"For me, none of my art is complete without drawing, which is the foundation for my creative expression. The nature I depict is universal and eternally relevant, and I'm fascinated by the repetitive character of natural forms in the micro and macro worlds. I explore this through drawing because the core motif, i.e. treetops, is so thoroughly articulated that the final creation alludes to other similar natural shapes." Tina Konec
The traditional annual puppet exhibition to reopen Bežigrad Gallery 1 at the end of August. Recordings of puppet shows are screened alongside the exhibition, which this year features artists working with Maribor Puppet Theatre, in which the visual concepts were designed by Ančka Gošnik - Godec, Jože Logar, Iztok Hrga, Damijan Stepančič, Viktor Šest and Breda Varl. Their puppets, sketches, scene elements, photographs and videos will be on display from Thursday, 31 August 2017.
Bezigrad Gallery 1
Established in 1976, the Bežigrad Gallery 1 is intended to host smaller overview exhibitions as well as exhibitions of visual and concrete poetry. In late August each year, the exhibition Od skice do lutke (From a Sketch to a Puppet) is staged. Although the exhibition is mainly intended for children, it always attracts a large number of adults as well. The exhibition aims to present those visual artists who are also involved either in creating puppets or sketches for puppets and puppet theatres. The exhibition is also accompanied by video projections of puppet shows and art workshops. This exhibition has been held annually since 1981.
