Živko Kladnik
Retrospective collage exhibition
Živko Kladnik Midlife
24. 3. 2021–19. 5. 2021

The 28th exhibition in the series of visual poetry shows at the Bežigrad galleries in Ljubljana is dedicated to the memory of Živko Kladnik (1948–2017), one of our most important authors of visual poetry. The first retrospective exhibition will present eighteen collages, created by the artist at the start of the 21st century. A characteristic of his collages is the density of scraps and cuttings from newspapers and magazines, pasted on basic surfaces or blind frames.

The artist’s artworks can be summarised with one word – integration. The lines and surfaces of her works are integrated into a new art world, one that is distinct of the artist’s life. Integration and never overlapping should be the essence of this world and beyond, where art enhances the meaning of life. This is exactly what the artworks of Lučka Šparovec are and what they depict.

The exhibition presents some of Marúšić’s less known works from the 1977s, coming from the collections of the Piran Coastal Galleries and private collections. During this period, the artist worked on drawing and painting images, which were based on zooming in and out as perceived by a camera lens. Particular to these works is a bird’s eye view, in which human figures and street objects create the impression of a tranquil levitation.
