Zurich, Switzerland, 08 March 2018 – Gallery Gara Perun will open at Zurich Switzerland. The programme of Gara Perun will start in small temporary space in Predigerplatz 42, 8802 Zurich. The gallery is working on finding its place in the contemporary art world with consistent programme of artists from Serbia and Ex-Yugoslavia in general. Since the art and art history of this region has mainly remained undiscovered or misinterpreted, due to the various political and social turbulences, gallery searches to present the rich diversity of the artworks coming from this region.
Gallery has a goal to act as a window on Serbian modern and contemporary at scene, as well as to broaden the intellectual dialogue between Serbia and Europe. Gara Perun promotes the artists they love through the showcase of their most valuable artworks. Gallery will maintain a diverse exhibition programme with solo exhibitions of the gallery artists as well as group exhibitions and special projects. The gallery will deal in a distinctive combination of painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, video and installation-based work.
The Gallery will open with the solo exhibition of Slobodan Đuričković Ćako, artist that lives and works in Belgrade, Serbia. He is expressing himself with the language of pure painting. Art based on the elementary assets of a painting: colours, surfaces, spots, masses, composition relations and variations of light qualities. His painting is reduced to its entity, it is cleaned from all “the foreign ingredients”: narration, description, illustration, decoration. In the most cases paintings are reduced to the flat surface, in the most modern sense – there is no spatial depth or depth imitation as the last recognizable trace of the order of things in the real world.
Gallery Gara Perun is the realisation of Ogi Klingler’s, the owner of the gallery, ambition to present the Serbian Contemporary Art to the international art scene, and to give chance to the artists from the region to present themselves and to enter in the global art market.
