Description

Regaining Memory Loss. Djordje Ozbolt presents new paintings and sculptures that address personal and collective memory. The pavilion is transformed by a new wall painting by the artist, which serves as an imaginary landscape on top of which more paintings are hung. Ozbolt views these works as windows, or portals, open onto symbolic and illusory visions of the past. Through the artist’s signature use of bright, saturated colour, the canvases and wall paintings clash and fight against each other, for a sort of performed, unreliable history. The sculptures and paintings are configured to face each other, each reflecting to the other the layering of selective fragments of memory. The works in themselves are interpretations, a subjective view of the past from the perspective of the present moment. Ozbolt questions the role of the artwork in distilling the truth: in its imagined unreality, the works reveal their memory to be false, however as artistic representation, they are true.
