Description

In March 1991 the collector and publisher Francesco Conz, in collaboration with the Muzej Suvremene Umjetnosti - MSU Zagreb, invited a few artists who had been part of Gorgona, the Croatian avant-garde group active between 1959 and 1966, to an artistic residency at the castle of Brunnenburg in Merano, Italy. During their residency, the five artists created thirteen works of art as well as fifteen hand-made copies of each work. All of which were created on the same size of paper. These works should have been part of a box, an art edition that initially should have included large-scale reproductions of seven of the group's old works, printed on canvas in Como, in addition to en eight obtained by merging the former in a continuous strip to create sort of a "collective work" - together with photographs documenting the residency, historical photographs and video interviews filmed in Brunnenburg. Conz died in 2010 but the box was never finished, although all of its components had been created, except for the folder that was supposed to contain them. The works of the artists have since remained in F. Conz's Archive. Kozaric's three works are in line with his research, which investigates – both through painting and sculpturing - the relationship between positive and negative: in one particular work, the artist reuses a cropped shape as a graphic mask in order to achieve what Seder calls "imperfect surfaces", a theme that traces back to the Gorgona period. Kožarić's particular interest in the valley of Merano, which is in relation to his personal memories, emerges both through the video interview taped in Brunnenburg as well the testimonies of the artists who participated in the residency.
