EXHIBITION: JAGOR'S FOREST

EXHIBITION: JAGOR'S FOREST

 

Location: Salon Galić Gallery (Marmontova 3, 21000 Split)

 

Time: May 20 - June 6, 2022

 

In Sven Klobučar's exhibitions so far, fictional characters from his drawings, such as suicides, the dead, various lunatics, or, for example, Wolfgang Gring, a tired gravedigger who has been digging for four hundred years, belonged to different contexts and emerged from undefined spaces. This time they are connected by the same place - the terrible "Jagor's Forest" - where, as we learn from the artist, the infamous Dr. Kleo Schubert, a psychiatrist who lived in the late nineteenth century, founded a mental hospital near the cemetery. Dr. Schubert used brutal methods on his patients, and after his death, the remaining patients fled and set fire to the mental hospital and the forest itself.
