Location: Museum of Fine Art (Kralja Tomislava 15, 21000 Split)
Duration: Tuesday, November 10 - Sunday, December 6
The exhibition Between Heart and Stomach: Animalistic Motifs in Split's Visual Arts presents selected works from the opus of eight male and one female artist. In chronological order of their years of birth, these include Emanuel Vidović, Branislav (Branko) Dešković, Ivan Mirković, Antun Zuppa (Zupa), Andrija Krstulović, Petar Jakelić, Ljubica Buble Dragojević, Edvin Dragičević, and Vinko Barić. Taken as a whole, their artistic work extends through modern and contemporary art. What they have in common is the visibility of animal motifs in their opuses, their poetic profiling and artistic expressiveness. Owing to their artistic engagement, an exhibition has been created in which animal beings briefly become more important than humans. The reality of our world, however, is quite different and abounds in their exploitation and minimization.
Perhaps the exhibited bestiary will remind one or the other person of how important the animal world is and how lonely we would be without it.
