Igor Grubić: Traces of Disappearing (In Three Acts)
Following the success of the project Traces of Disappearing (In Three Acts) by Igor Grubić as the representative of Croatia at the Venice Biennale, Zagreb’s audience will have the first opportunity to see the project in its entirety at the Museum of Contemporary Art.
Traces of Disappearing (In Three Acts)
The artist initiated the project in 2006, when he began documenting the post-war, transitional reality in Croatia, particularly the transition from socialism to capitalism, from a centralised, state-planned economy to a free-market economy. Within the thirteen-year period, during which he studied the influence on changes in housing, urban tissue, public space and social relations, Igor Grubić has produced three interconnected photographic essays and an animated film, which together make a whole defined by chapters.
The exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art will remain open until 4 January 2020, after which it will be presented in Split, Osijek, and Rijeka.
The participation of Croatia at the 58th Venice Biennale has been funded by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia, with support by Kreativni sindikat (Creative Syndicate) and the Croatian Audiovisual Centre (HAVC). The exhibition at MSU has been organised in collaboration with AM Centre.
