Last guided tour of the "CUTS" exhibition
Rather than a classic retrospective overview, this exhibition of Marjan Gumilar’s painting thematically revolves around one of the main recurring and constitutive elements in his art, a correlate in the process of constructing the pictorial field. You are cordially invited to join us for a last guided tour of the exhibition with curator Mateja Podlesnik.
In Gumilar’s latest montages − paintings-objects − the previously used materials such as rags, canvas, pieces of clothing and personal objects transformed into aesthetic materials have had to yield place to a new material, the transparent and structurally unstable sheets of plastic. The artist cuts, staples, and pastes fragments of it or else leaves it fragmented, creating subtle and fragile views through a representation of human skin into the subject’s viscera and essence.
