Filip Vlahov: Dokazi (Evidence)
November 9th - 24th 2023
The first solo exhibition of an artist and design student Filip Vlahov from Split, "Evidence", introduces us to the meticulously interpreted world of linear shaping of human and animal anatomy that steps out of the frame of reality. The author's long drawing and directing of densely spaced lines creates a surreal dynamic of volume that highlights the vibrancy of depictions, including those of pure skeleton.
Such a detailed linear description, which makes the observer imagine a movement of the motif in a metaphysical sense, is perfected by the author in his previously made etchings, which, in addition to the cycle of anatomical drawings made in the rapidograph technique and ink on paper, are also visible as part of the "Evidence" exhibition.
In addition to the graphic technique of etching, the author was significantly inspired by historical medical and anatomical illustrations, along with Polish posters related to the representation of the human body.
