Tomislav Brajnović solo exhibition The Crawling Armageddon opens November 4 at the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Rijeka.

The Crawling Armageddon by Tomislav Brajnović (Zagreb, 1965), offers a cross section of works created from the end of the 1990s onwards. Many of these works have rarely been presented in public. This kaleidoscopic display gathers approximately twenty works, including installations, objects, ready-made series, videos and acoustic compositions. It represents a relatively short, turbulent history of the new millennium, in which totalitarian elements of the past century return to us like timed bombs. From Odyssey (2004), to The Law of Love, to Soldier in Ripe Wheat (2015), these works reflect on the consequences of frenetic production and exploitation of material resources. Sometimes they express a sound of transcendence, a transcendence that seems elusive in the agony of everydayness, where the clashes of reality are conveyed into the anxious feeling of time flow, moving from silence to turbulence. Hence, the need for reversing the dictate of time and finding a better future becomes crucial, but there is an open question of how to attain this. The author says: The only (im)possible revolution is the revolution of consciousness. Human consciousness today does not differ much from the consciousness that existed before or after the French or October Revolution. Nothing has changed here; the only progress that has been made is the progress in HD broadcast of the never-ending revolution… The idea of Earth as Eden and the question of who (if anyone) can reach it and how, represents the core of my artistic personality.

Naturalia et artificialia. ECCENTRIC Art & Research’s first exhibition in Milan announced for October 12 2016.

Please scroll down for English version

ECCENTRIC Art & Research è lieta di presentare la sua prima mostra che inaugurerà il 12 ottobre 2016 a Milano. La mostra includerà lavori di tutti gli artisti rappresentati fino ad oggi: Ivana Adaime Makac, Jamie Allen, Tomislav Brajnović, Sarah Ciracì, Baptiste Debombourg, Gabriele Di Matteo, Federico Luger, Brian Montuori, Steve Piccolo, Anja Puntari, Axel Straschnoy e Massimiliano Viel.

Naturalia et artificialia erano due categorie con cui si classificavano le meraviglie esposte negli studioli durante il Rinascimiento. Nel contesto di questa mostra queste categorie sono il fil rouge che attraversa i temi trattati da artisti e opere. Ma non è questa differenziazione in se stessa artificiale? Perché non esiste natura senza artificio, senza il filtro della cultura, né tecnologia o artificio che non partecipi della natura. Questo è il discorso che la mostra intende affrontare.

ECCENTRIC è un dispositivo flessibile senza una location fissa. Naturalia et artificialia avrà luogo nello spazio MyOwnGallery presso Superstudio, via Tortona 27, Milano, dal 12 al 21 ottobre 2016.

Naturalia et artificialia si realizza con il generoso supporto di PERFORMANT, SCOA ed EXEO Consulting.

ENGLISH

ECCENTRIC Art & Research is pleased to present its first exhibition in Milan, opening on October 12, 2016. The exhibition will feature the work of all its represented artists up-to-date: Ivana Adaime Makac, Jamie Allen, Tomislav Brajnović, Sarah Ciracì, Baptiste Debombourg, Gabriele Di Matteo, Federico Luger, Brian Montuori, Steve Piccolo, Anja Puntari, Axel Straschnoy and Massimiliano Viel.

The title of the exhibition is Naturalia et artificialia, both of the categories with which the wonders exhibited in the cabinets of curiosities during the Renaissance were classified.
In the context of this exhibition both concepts work as the common thread that brings together the diverse topics addressed by the featured artists and artworks. All of them, in one way or another, pose questions about issues that have to do either with nature, or with artifice and technology, and often with both. However, isn’t’ this differentiation in itself artificial, and even false? Because there is no nature without artifice—without the artificial filter of culture—nor technology or artifice which doesn’t participate of nature.

ECCENTRIC is a flexible dispositive with no definite location. Naturalia et artificialia will take place in the space MyOwnGallery at Superstudio, via Tortona 27, Milano, from October 12 through the 21.

Naturalia et articifialia is realised with the generous support of PERFORMANT, SCOA and EXEO Consulting.
