LANDSCAPE EXTENDED

diSTRUKTURA

4. 9. – 4. 10. 2014

Gallery Vernon, Janáčkovo nábřeží 21, Prague 5

Gallery Vernon presents a new exhibition by the creative Serbian duo from Belgrade. Expressing via different media, mostly painting, photography, drawing and video, they aim to reestablish man's lost bonds to the nature and propose new metaphors that would reflect the complex position of a human within the frame of urban landscape. The opening is connected with a special charity project in cooperation with THE GLOBAL CHARITY TRUST and Most k umění (Bridge to Art).

Milica Milićević (1979) and Milan Bosnic (1969) are both MA's of Departments of Painting, Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Arts, Belgrade. Besides diverse individual artistic ventures in group and solo exhibitions they have been working on joint projects since 2005 under name diSTRUKTURA.

They raise questions such as: how long it takes for the changes in our environment to change the way we think? In this respect, they care not only whether their work is observed but also HOW it is observed. „With no intention of setting new theories, we use traditional art forms such as painting, drawing and photography, together with historical and cultural contexts embedded in our work, to allow the recipient to become aware of the time in which he lives, but also his historical and cultural heritage. By acting on this and calling for others to participate in their representations of Nature and landscape, we are once again attempting to point out to and re-establish the torn bonds between humans and Nature.“

diSTRUKTURA took part in over 15 individual and more that 30 group exhibitions such as: CARGO EAST: Subdued Existence in Taichung Taiwan, distURBANces in Luxembourg (2013), in Vienna and Bratislava (2012), TINA B festival in Prague (2012), Police the Police/ Biennial of young artists in Bucharest (2010), Belgrade Non-Places in Salon of Museum of Contemporary Art Belgrade (2009), Hotel Mariakapel: a portrait by Katie Jane in Hoornu, Netherlands (2008), Micro Narratives in Museum of Modern Art Saint Etienne (2008) and other.

They exhibited solo in Serbia, Austria, Netherlands, Germany, Czech, Slovenia and Finland.

Their activities were supported by European Cultural Foundation, KulturKontakt, Kingdom of Norway, ProHelvetia, Belgrade City Municipality, Okolje Consulting and others. Their works are now part of many private, public and corporate collections such as Wiener Stadtische collection, Belgrade City Museum, Telenor collection or Okolje Consulting Art Collection from Ljubljana. For the past 9 years they participated in artist in residence programs and workshops in Austria, Netherlands, Slovenia, Italy, Finland, Egypt and Serbia and for their contributions in diSTRUKTURA duo they have received 2 awards.

The opening takes place at the presence of the artists on Thursday 4. 9. 2014 at 6 pm at the Gallery Vernon, Janáčkovo nábřeží 21, Prague 5.

As a part of the opening of the diSTRUKTURA exhibition there will be a special project for charity. Participants of September’s opening party at the Gallery Vernon will donate 50 CZK to support non-profit organization MOST K UMĚNÍ (The Bridge to Art), that is helping children in needs, and THE GLOBAL CHARITY TRUST, that is standing behind the whole concept.

 

THE GLOBAL CHARITY TRUST is specialized on VIP invitations for charity events where luxury supports philanthropy. Since 2011 it has supported hundreds of international charity events. Besides art galleries the Global Party directly collaborates with restaurants, 5*star hotels as well as premium bars and nightclubs. More info on www.theglobalparty.com.

Most k umění (Bridge to Art) is a non-profit organization that creates art projects for abused and socially disadvantaged children. Most k umění primarily seeks full involvement of potentially vulnerable or isolated groups of children in society through the active interaction with art so art has become a pleasant part of their leisure time and can enrich not only their own life, but the whole society.
