Paulina Jazvić: This is not another party
opening: 9.9. 2020 20h
the exhibition remains open until 14.9.2020 4 to 8 PM
Related to the basic program determinant of the Gallery 90 – 60 – 90 for 2020 entitled Whose is it ?, which focuses on the author’s problematization and questioning of psycho-social aspects that condition, define and position the role of gender, socially conditioned and generally cultural aspects in the existence of individuals and / or groups, the multimedia artist Paulina Jazvić, with her many years of work, reflects just such an issue. Her works reflect the traumas and phantasms of everyday life, which on an unconscious level, through dealing with traumatic experiences, affect the identity of individuals and groups, creating a platform for reflection on some parallel, often disguised personal narratives. Using often a strategy of ironic, sometimes black-humored approach, Paulina Jazvić speaks eloquently about hidden individual traumas, which imperceptibly but continuously shapes the socio-psychological anamnesis.
