Guided tour of the "Stone" exhibition with Jiři Bezlaj
In his fifty years of sculpting, Jiři Bezlaj has produced numerous sculpture series and cycles that have left a recognizable mark on contemporary Slovenian sculpture. Bezlaj primarily works with stone, which is also the material with which he has achieved enviable aesthetic and creative levels.
The overview exhibition focuses on the artist’s eight most important and most powerful sculpture cycles that have emerged from the period of over five decades, during which he has explored materials such as marble and various types of minerals, highlighted their natural characteristics, and cut them into multitudinous shapes by blending abstract forms with figural elements related to man or certain animals and plants.
You are cordially invited to join us for a guided tour of the exhibition with Jiři Bezlaj and curator Sarival Sosič, PhD.
