The exhibition "Saudade" is open to the public
You are cordially invited to visit the exhibition of Meta Grgurevič in KC Tobačna 001. Artist found her means of expression in a complex interplay of kinetic mechanical objects and multidimensional settings. In this exhibition project she delves into a specific emotional state that the Portuguese, a nation of seafarers and musicians, call saudade.
The word has no directly translatable meaning in Slovene. It describes profound longing for something and correlates with the here better known word sevdah. The mixture of emotions is associated with events and experiences that once brought happiness and now resonate with happiness and hope to relive or feel something again, despite knowing that what is being longed for might never return.
