Motion in Sculpture / Sculpture in Motion

Programme | 26.12.2013






























Motion in Sculpture/Sculpture in Motion

Author of the exhibition: Rajka Bošković (MA), senior curator

The exhibition Motion in Sculpture/Sculpture in Motion is concerned with the possibilities of expressing the motion in sculpture. The exhibition presents two ways of reading sculptural form―through it’s conventional understanding and depiction of the real motion, but also through new possibilities of understanding and expressing the sculptural mass, by discerning the barely suggested motion.

The first part of the exhibition sets forth the motion in sculpture, which is peculiar to the expression of the motion of figural form, whereas the other part of the exhibition deals with the phenomenon of the sculpture in motion, as seen and presented through works in which the state of being in motion is brought about by energising the mass or by barely suggested dynamism of shape.

This is exactly what prompted the emergence of the phrase “sculpture in motion” in relation to this exhibition, since the contemporary understanding is heavily dependent precisely on the distinguishing of the energised states of the form. The exhibition aims to draw attention to this new aspect of looking at the motion in sculpture―through perceiving the potentialities of the motion in a state of latent, and only fathomed energisation of the shape, which, in turn, also introduces new possibilities of reading the sculptural form.

The phenomenon of the motion is shown through the works of the artists that made their mark in the 20th-century art, such as Petar Palavičini, Sreten Stojanović, Risto Stijović, Boris Anastasijević, Vojin Stojić, Petar Hadži Boškov, Olga Jančić, Sava Sandić, Predrag Lisičić, Vojin Bakić, Vladeta Petrić, Ivan Kožarić, Ante Marinović, Vasko Lipovac, Zdenko Kalin, and Šime Vulas.
