Karlin Studios, Prague: THE UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF BEING AN ARTIST

NADA PRLJA: THE UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF BEING AN ARTIST

Opening: Wednesday, April 3rd 2013, 6pm
The Exhibition will be open until: April 28th 2013

Exhibition of Nada Prlja (born 1971, in Bosna nad Hercegovina) is focused on research of the definition of Hatred. The portrayal of Hate is however different from one project to another, although it is possible to notice a certain continuity and coherence.

The artist’s profession has commonly been seen as a ‘noble’ calling, one which allows the artist a high degree of freedom, egocentricity and a bohemian lifestyle. Being an artist today, I cannot easily associate myself with any of these descriptions. By voluntarily absorbing the negativity of the world around us, is it easy to be an engaged artist today? (Prlja)

This exhibition represents a cross-section of Prlja’s work since 2004, however, it is not a collection of disconnected works. The works have been selected in order to represent the artist’s investigation into issues such as hatred, terror, neglect, deception, dishonesty, insensitivity and misinterpretation in our society today.
