Relating to the specific spatial features of the Tobacco Gallery, Bernik’s exhibition will investigate intersections between art and everyday life in the artist’s characteristic style as well as address the issue of social space and the ways in which art can enter it. The visual artist from Ljubljana, Viktor Bernik (1971) graduated from painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in 1998 under the mentorship of Metka Krašovec and Bojan Gorenc. Under Gorenc’s supervision, he also completed his specialization.
Vision 20/20 is part of a broader vision of Jakopič Gallery, which is to learn and give opportunities for learning. Learning about others, about them, but through them and through photography – about ourselves. We initiated it with last year’s exhibition of Iraqi photographers, which also emphasised different ways of seeing: Over My Eyes exposed a different Iraq than the one defined by war and war only.

The exhibition, filled with symbolism, presents two views of the artist's tale of humans. The emphasis is on the strongly contrasting stylised figures, which are merged and float in a white void. These are the messengers in an unknown ritual. The paintings of a larger format (200 x 110 cm) are dominated by red-coloured figures, while the second part of the exhibition presents preparatory paintings or concepts for sculptures, with an emphasis on black figures.
The exhibition presents a series of photographs, axonometric drawings, and abstract models made from wood, epoxy resin, and plaster – of the so-called “archetypes” in which students condensed the ideas from select examples of Plečnik’s architecture. With archetypes students created a rich architectural vocabulary that helped them form new projects of different scales.
