Zmago Lenárdič: Shuffle
What is the position of the Shuffle exhibition in relation to the existing reality? Always a critical and insightful observer of reality, its everyday aspects, representations, and theoretical interpretations, Lenárdič has incorporated in his creative practice his awareness of the changes in perception and his reflections on the status of the (painterly) image, “socialized” in the broad range of visual culture.
In his practice, Lenárdič opposes the conventions of viewing. Underpinning everything he does is the intellectual emancipation of the artistic image and the question of how an artistic image can preserve its otherness amidst equalized images, of how it can introduce the playfulness of fiction into the dominance of reality and actively involve the viewer in the effect the fiction produces.
