Na svojoj prvoj samostalnoj izložbi u Splitu irski umjetnik Conor McGrady predstavlja se serijom recentnih radova na papiru koji su nastali nakon umjetnikovog istraživačkog putovanja u Split i na Vis 2018. godine. U skladu s njegovim interesom za istraživanjem različitih društvenih pojava koje se javljaju kao posljedica kontrole prostora, ljudi i nacionalnih granica, radove izložene u Galeriji umjetnina temelji na iščitavanju Hrvatske sadašnjosti kroz segmente koje je prepoznao kao one koje proizlaze iz vremena socijalizma. Preko nasljeđa ambicioznih arhitektonskih projekata poput urbanističkog projekta Splita 3 ili velike mreže vojnih bunkera i tunela na Visu, McGrady mapira promjene koje su se dogodile u prijelazu iz utopijskih želja modernizma prema političkom konzervativizmu, zaokretu udesno i povlačenju u individualizam. U crtežima velikih formata tako isprepliće ideološke i estetske implikacije navedenih lokaliteta, dajući im širi okvir kroz istraživanje kontradikcija i nejasnoća koje su prisutne u svim narativima moći i kontrole.
 
Izložba ostaje otvorena do 29.08.2021.

CONOR McGRADY: Entering the Control Zone

Exhibition opening: July 22, at 09:00 p.m.

Curated by Jasminka Babić and Branko Franceschi
 
For his first solo exhibition in Split, the Irish artist Conor McGrady presents his recent series of works on paper that were created after his research trip to Split and the island of Vis in 2018. In accordance with his interest in various manifestations of social order and topics related to the control of space, people and national borders, the works exhibited at the Museum of Fine Arts in Split research the Croatian present through the segments that McGrady has recognized as the ones surviving from the Communist era. Citing the legacy of ambitious architectural projects such as urbanistic project of Split 3 or vast network of military bunkers and tunnels on Vis, the artist examines the changes that have occurred when the utopian wishes of modernism had been replaced by political conservativism, a rightward turn and retreat into individualism. Large scale drawings show the ideological and aesthetic implications of the chosen localities explored in the broader framework of contradictions and ambiguities inherent to all power and control narratives.
 
The exhibition remains open until August 29, 2021.
