Exhibition curator was Željko Marciuš and the exhibition design was by Ivana Jurić and Fedor Fischer.
“In coloured hybrids, with projection interaction interwoven between stimuli of multiplied actuality of contradictory effects and the interior reality of the artist, with the method of cut-out, overlapped and visually cacophonous citational allusions from high and low culture and art are mingled in a kind of neo-pop-trash panopticon with Ivana’s chaotically aesthetic ethics, shot through with surreal, nightmare dream visions.”
Željko Marciuš, from the foreword in the catalogue of the Ivan Jurić exhibition Face Blindness
The exhibition can be viewed until October 7, 2018
