Negative Light

Exhibition of the artworks titled ‘Negative Light’ by Srđan Šarović will be open on Tuesday 27 April, in the Svilara Cultural Station. The exhibition will be accompanied by Branka Parlić, one of the most eminent pianists from Eastern and Southeast Europe.

You’ll be able to watch the opening of the exhibition online via Facebook page of the Svilara Cultural Station, starting at 6 p.m. Due to epidemiological reasons, the number of people allowed indoors is limited.

The exhibition by Srđan Šarović, a technical associate at the Academy of Arts in Novi Sad, presents a series of drawings of abstract figuration and gallery format (done using oils on paper), abstract paintings of big format in a combined technique, as well as a video about the work process. The above-mentioned works of art are part of a doctoral art project by Srđan Šarović at the Academy of Arts in Novi Sad.

The ‘Negative Lights’ project portrays the experience of war and the consequences such an experience has on the personality of not just an artist, but the whole society in general, and the way it influences culture and art. By putting negative light in focus, the author asks questions about them and provides new and constructive solutions in terms of dealing with traumatic consequences.

One of the greatest pianists of minimalism and postminimalism from the second half of 20th and the first decade of 21st century, Branka Parlić, will open the exhibition. This academic musician from Novi Sad will perform Trois Gymnopédies, three piano compositions by the French composer and pianist Erik Satie.

The exhibition will be open to the public until 29 April, in the period from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., while the installation will be displayed until 4 May. On Wednesday 28 April, a professional guidance through the exhibition will be organised. The audience will also have an opportunity to meet and talk with the author (from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.).
