Multimedia exhibition “Breathe” will open this Saturday in Dubrovnik
A multimedia exhibition entitled “Breathe” by Kristina Kojan Goluža will open on Saturday 2 October in the Lazareti complex, just outside the city walls of Dubrovnik, from 19:00.
Artist Kristina Kojan Goluža will highlight her memories of her home in Konavle, which was burnt down during the Homeland War, and which no longer belongs to the family after the end of the war due to the division of property.
The author uses photographs and slides to partially recreate the ambiance of the old house, this time in a different location – in Lazareti. The photographs of memories from family albums contrast with the photographs of the house today, photographs illustrating decadence, trauma and abandonment. The artistic concept thus exposed seeks to problematize the relationship of a positive emotional relationship to a traumatized physical space that is apparently repulsive.
The multimedia work “Breathe” is an integral part of the program by which the City of Dubrovnik celebrates the 30th anniversary of the heroic defense of the City.
The program will run from October 1 to December 6 and will contain a series of special events, which will thematically refer to the selfless and courageous sacrifice of Croatian veterans and civilians.
The work is visible on weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Free entry.
