We’re announcing the opening of Milorad Krstic’ multimedia exhibition
Das Anatomische Theater (The Anatomical Theatre) at the SKUC Gallery in Ljubljana (Slovenia) on Tue, 7th Nov. 2006 at 8 p.m.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Milorad Krstic is many times awarded visual and multimedia artist (Silver Bear Award, Berlin Film Festival: MIFA award, Animation festival Annecy, Novacom award, Budapest…), that Stripburger readers might remember from Stripburek – comics from the other Europe and Honey Talks – comics inspired by painted beehive panels.
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:
„The Theater is anatomical in nature because within it the 20th century is placed on a dissection table; the people, the events and the phenomena therefore do not wear costumes or masks; on the contrary, even the skin is torn off, tissue is cut, bone and muscle are revealed, and the nervous, blood and lymph systems are observed.”
„Eroticism, which often appears in the scenes of Das Anatomische Theater many times bordering on obscenity, and which is deeply rooted in the depths of the age-old traditions of Eros and Thanatos, is evoked to counterbalance the tragic events and the totalitarian systems that brought doom to the 20th century. The civilized nations have long forgotten that, in more primitive stages of their existence, they too used erotic art to expel the evil spirits. With the help of its irony and eroticism, Das Anatomische Theater banishes the evil powers of the 20th century” Milorad Krstic
