Dear Friends,
 
Although our physical space is temporarily closed, C24 Gallery is pleased to remain connected with our community during this unprecedented time. We are re-launching our newsletter with “From the Salon,” a new weekly online series that will feature curated collections of work from our artists and other collaborators, as well as selections from our past programmed events. We are pleased to begin by showcasing the work of Viktor Popović, whose latest photo assemblages were chosen by curator Jamillah James to be exhibited in the Focus section at The Armory Show last month.
 
 
 
Viktor Popović (artist), Jamillah James (curator) & David C. Terry (C24 Director) at The Armory Show, NY, 2020
 

Popović is based in Split, Croatia, where he is the head of the Painting Department at the Arts Academy. In his latest project, Untitled (Archive: Zenčišće), 2020, he explores 1970s, late Modern Croatian architecture and its complex present-day perception as an unwanted relic of socialist, former Yugoslavia. The focus is the former resort/rehabilitation center for children from Belgrade at the Zenčišće Bay in Jelsaon, built in the late 1970s by the City of Belgrade on 64,000 square meters of land on the island of Hvar, Croatia. Although this island is a well-known international resort destination, the site of the center, which was closed in the 1990s, is presently almost completely in ruins, beyond hope of reconstruction.

For the Armory project, Popović juxtaposes archival images of children playing and dignitaries visiting on the grounds of the center with current photographs of the devastated grounds, assembled with pieces of color correction filters hearkening to the iconic palette of postcards from that time period, as well as the turquoise reminiscent of the clear Adriatic Sea of the 70s. His constructions represent the paradox between utopian ideas and structures and the dystopian reality, echoing the country’s present-day, chaotic socio-economic situation. His exploration of place and memory inspires a bittersweet mix of nostalgia, hope and regret during this present time, when notions of home and belonging are in question worldwide.

We invite you to immerse yourself in the artist’s vision as you also enjoy some images from our booth at the fair. While the nature of our global crisis demands that we continue to maintain physical distance from one another, C24 Gallery plans to maintain its connection with regular online communications. We look forward to hearing your feedback and welcome any inquiries.

All the best to you and yours,
C24 Gallery
