Oliver Pilić: OBLIKA ČASA

3. 3.–15. 4. 2021
Galerija Kresija

Kako razumemo pojem časa? Se s tem sploh ukvarjamo ali čas le zapravljamo in se pritožujemo, da nam ga ves čas primanjkuje? Instalacija Oblika časa vizualnega umetnika Oliverja Pilića tematizira prav pojme, kot so čas, prostor, gibanje in svetloba. Nove tehnologije, kot tudi stare grafične tehnike (lesorez), so njegovo orodje pri tem, da digitalno generirane bitmap slike (s črtastim rastrom) s preslikavo prenese na leseno ploščo, ročno izreže matrice in ročno odtisne. Njegova grafična dela temeljijo na izvirni, a sodobni nadgradnji tradicionalnih tehnik, ki je plod dolgoletnega osebnega tako praktičnega kot teoretičnega raziskovanja ter spremljanja domače in svetovne produkcije sodobne umetnosti. Del tokratne Pilićeve postavitve 48 slik/kadrov/lesorezov je tudi video lesorez, ki kaže povratni proces, torej kako odtisnjeni lesorezi in linearni raster delujejo v gibanju.
Oliver Pilić (1978) je najprej začel študij na Akademiji likovnih umetnosti v Zagrebu in nato nadaljeval s študijem vizualnih umetnosti na Akademiji za vizualne umetnosti (AVA) v Ljubljani ter bil takoj po diplomi nominiran za nagrado skupine OHO. Leta 2019 je prejel častno nagrado na 2. Mednarodnem grafičnem bienalu v Erevanu v Armeniji. Deluje kot samostojni ustvarjalec na področju sodobne vizualne umetnosti. Svoje delo je predstavil na več samostojnih in skupinskih razstavah doma in v tujini.

 


Oliver Pilić: THE SHAPE OF TIME
How do we understand the notion of time? Do we reflect on it at all, or is the only thing we do with time waste it and complain about the lack thereof? The installation The Shape of Time by visual artist Oliver Pilić examines the notions of time, space, movement, and light. Using new technologies as well as traditional graphic techniques (woodcut), Pilić transfer-prints computer generated (stripe pattern) raster or bitmap images on a piece of wood, cuts the matrices by hand, and makes prints by hand. A result of years of investigation and research, both practical and theoretical, and of keeping abreast of local and global developments in contemporary art, Pilić’s prints are based on his original and contemporary take on traditional graphic techniques. His installation of 48 frames/shots/woodcuts also includes a woodcut video, a reverse process showing how the woodcuts and the linear raster work in motion.
Oliver Pilić (1978) studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb before moving to Ljubljana to continue his studies at the Academy of Visual Arts (AVA). Closely after graduation, he was nominated for the OHO Young Visual Artist Award. In 2019, he was given an honorary award at the 2nd International Print Biennale in Yerevan, Armenia. Pilić is a freelance artist engaging in contemporary visual art. His work has been shown in multiple solo and group exhibitions locally and internationally.
