Exhibition “Barke” (Boats) by Ivana Petan-ceramics and BojanB-prints
The opening took place in the courtyard of the Bianchini palace, now Museum of Stari Grad, Hvar island on 11th September at 11 am!
The multimedia exhibition“Barke” (Boats) is built by three elements. The first is Bojan Brecelj’s photographs, focusing on the construction of wooden boats on the island of Samos in the Aegean Sea, which is one of the few places in the Mediterranean where wooden boats are sought and masters still have a lot to do! (collection of 7 prints-limited edition 100 x 70cm and 110x 30cm )
Looking at the strong structures of the boats made of wood growing here, on the hill above the sea… the questions appeared: Is this the past? What is really the future of sea travel? Having in mind these questions, these photographs were created.
The second element of the exhibition is ceramic sculptural works of Ivana Petan – abstract forms of boats, made in the technique of paper-porcelain, chamotte clay and glazes.
In the hours when the sea and sky are painted in the same colour, they look like one big blue. Through it, beings of different worlds draw traces of innumerable shapes, creating a unique mandala of destinies. Each trace tells its story – its creation, its path and its mission that it yearns for. To imprint the traces of sea, to take its form, it happens through the respect, hearing and participation of all visible and invisible phenomena that create the whole of the open and every moment of the new water-air space of life.
The third element of the exhibition is image&sound track TRACES OF MED LAND PROJECT 2019/1, a project on which the creation of this entire exhibition is built on. The soundscape was created by Eleonora Pauli.
