Palapala Hōʻikeʻike | Hoʻomanaʻo iā Zagreb

Noʻonoʻo ʻo James Merrigan i ka 'Dubliners' ma ka 6th Biennial of Painting.

Nānā hoʻonohonoho, 'Dubliners', 6th Biennale of Painting, HDLU, Meštrović Pavilion, Zagreb; nā kiʻi na Juraj Vuglač, mahalo ʻia e nā mea pena, Pallas Projects a me The Croatian Association of Artists (HDLU). Nānā hoʻonohonoho, 'Dubliners', 6th Biennale of Painting, HDLU, Meštrović Pavilion, Zagreb; nā kiʻi na Juraj Vuglač, mahalo ʻia e nā mea pena, Pallas Projects a me The Croatian Association of Artists (HDLU).

"He aha ʻo Zagreb like?” Ua nīnau mai ka poʻe iaʻu, ma hope o ka hoʻolimalima ʻana i nā pō ʻehā ma ke kapikala ʻo Croatian i ka manawa o ka 6th Biennial of Painting, i komo pū me kahi hōʻike i kapa ʻia ʻo 'Dubliners', curated e nā alakaʻi o Pallas Projects, ʻo Mark Cullen lāua ʻo Gavin Murphy. E ʻōlelo ʻo Zagreb e like me 1990s Dublin hiki ke hoʻomaopopo akā ʻaʻole pololei. He kūlanakauhale nui loa ia. Kūleʻa nui ka hoʻolālā a me ka mōʻaukala, me kona poʻe kiʻekiʻe. Hoʻokahi wale nō H&M aʻu i ʻike ai, ʻaʻohe Starbucks a me McDonalds, akā ke hele nei lākou me ka hoʻouka kaua ʻana mai o Ryanair. I kēia manawa, nani ʻo Zagreb e like me ke kūlanakauhale e hiki ai, ma kēlā ʻano ʻano scarred. I ko mākou kipa ʻana, ua hōʻailona ʻia e kahi ōlaʻi hou, COVID-19, a me ka mōʻaukala o nā kaua hope, e like me ka makahiki 1995 - ka makahiki hope loa o ke Kaua Kūʻokoʻa ʻo Croatian, hiki ke ʻike ʻia nā haʻalulu i loko o ka lepo lepo. a me nā alapiʻi ʻeleʻele, e like me ka mea i alakaʻi i ke keʻena aʻu i hui pū ai me nā mea pena kiʻi hōʻikeʻike, ʻo Mark O'Kelly lāua ʻo Colin Martin. 

Ke noʻonoʻo nei i hope, ʻo koʻu hele ʻana ma Zagreb he mea keu. Ma laila au e noho ai i kamaʻilio lehulehu me kekahi o nā mea pena kiʻi hōʻikeʻike i ka pō Sābati ma mua o ko mākou holo ʻana i ka home. Ua hoʻokō mua wau i ke komisina e kākau i kahi ʻatikala nui e pili ana i ke kumuhana o ka pena pena, kahi i ʻimi koʻikoʻi i ka pena kiʻi a me ka mea pena e pili ana i 'ke kūlanakauhale'. Ua hoʻoikaika ʻia ke kihi o ke kūlanakauhale e nā kumu curatorial no ke koho ʻana i nā mea pena no ka makahiki ʻelua, ʻo ia, i kāna mau paʻi ʻelima mua, ua hoʻohana i ke kūlanakauhale ʻEulopa ma ke ʻano he ala e wehewehe a hoʻokaʻawale i ka hana pena i loko o kahi kiʻi kiʻi aupuni. Ma ke kākau ʻana, ua ʻike au i kekahi mea e hiki ke loaʻa mai ka ʻike a me ka wehewehe ʻana o nā mea pena a me nā kiʻi pena i mālama ʻia i loko o kekahi kūlanakauhale i hāʻawi ʻia a, ʻoi aku ka nui o ka Hale Paʻi Meštrović o Zagreb, i kapa ʻia ʻo 'ka Mosque' -  kahua o ka biennial.

I ka pō wehe, ua ʻike mākou i ka Mosque ma lalo o nā kukui a me ka nānā ʻana o kahi anaina nui o nā mea pena kiʻi Croatian, ʻo ka hapa nui o lākou e komo ana i ka hōʻike ʻana o nā lālā o Croatian Association of Visual Artists (HDLU) ma luna o ka pā hale. ʻO ka HDLU - ka hui alakaʻi kiʻi nāna i kono iā Cullen lāua ʻo Murphy e hoʻoponopono i nā 'Dubliners' - kahi hui ma waena o Dublin's Pallas Projects a me ka RHA. Hoʻopili ʻia e ka puka metala nui o ka pavilion, ua hāʻawi ka pelekikena HDLU, ka ʻAmelika ʻAmelika noho, ʻo Ruaidhri Dowling, a me Mark Cullen i nā haʻiʻōlelo a me nā ʻōlelo hoʻomaikaʻi. Ma hope iho, hoʻopuka nā mea ʻōlelo nui e kiaʻi ana i ka puka i ke mele. ʻO ka lewa hauʻoli he mea like ʻole i ka leo ʻē o ka pavilion, a me ka hāmau o nā kiʻi pena e waiho ana ma waho o nā kiʻi cylindrical.

ʻO ka Meštrović Pavilion (i hāʻawi ʻia i ka HDLU ma 1990) ua lilo ia i wahi no nā hōʻikeʻike a me nā hanana kiʻi mai ka makahiki 2006. ʻAʻole like ka pavilion me nā wahi hōʻikeʻike ʻē aʻe aʻu i ʻike ai. Hoʻopiʻi mākou ma kēia ʻāina e pili ana i nā kikowaena hana-kaumaha me kā lākou geometric panoply o nā kihi a me ke aniani. Hāʻawi ka Meštrović Pavilion me nā kihi no nā pihi pale. ʻO ka mea pena 'Dubliners', ʻo Sonia Shiel, i ʻōlelo i kahi mea ʻike e pili ana i ka hoʻonāukiuki ʻana o nā paia ʻāwili i kou kino e neʻe mau ma mua o ke kū mālie. 

I ke komo ʻana i ka puka nui o ka pavilion, ua hoʻopili ʻia ka vestibule ma kēlā ʻaoʻao kēia ʻaoʻao e nā alapiʻi pōhaku e alakaʻi ai i ka hōʻikeʻike o nā lālā HDLU, kahi salona liʻiliʻi o nā kiʻi pena, poʻohiwi-i-poʻohiwi, papahele-a-ke-paku. Ua hoʻonoho ʻia ʻo 'Dubliners' i loko o ka hale kiʻi kiʻekiʻe o ka papahele honua, kahi pahu hāmama ma luna, e like me kona ākea me ke kiʻekiʻe, e nānā ana i luna a i waho i ka lani o ka pō ma waena o ka dome o nā kile aniani poepoe. ʻO ka lewa ka mea nui loa a me ka metaphysical unnerving. Paʻa nā leo mai kekahi ʻaoʻao o ka lumi a i kekahi, e lilo ana ʻoe i mea hoʻolohe maikaʻi ʻole a i ʻole eavesdropper pōʻino. 

ʻO kā Cullen lāua ʻo Murphy curation he hoahānau ia o kā lāua Manaʻo Manaʻo makahiki ma Pallas Projects, akā ma kahi ʻano nui. Ua nīnau au, ma ka ʻatikala i kauoha ʻia, e haʻalele paha lākou i nā kiʻi pena e hoʻopaʻa iā lākou iho ma nā paia a i ʻole e lawe i kahi ala ākea i kahi ākea i hoʻolālā mua ʻia no ke kiʻi kiʻi i nā makahiki 1930. ʻO ka hoʻokomo ʻia ʻana o nā ʻāpana lāʻau i hoʻopaʻa ʻia e Tanad Williams a me Tom Watt e hōʻike i nā kiʻi pena a me nā puke a nā mea pena (me kahi kope o kā James Joyce. poe Dublin) pane mai i kaʻu nīnau. ʻO ka hoʻonohonoho ʻana i ka papahele o ka mosaic o Orla Whelan o nā kiʻi kiʻi kiʻi kiʻi kiʻi kiʻi, a me nā kiʻi kūʻokoʻa kūʻokoʻa o Harry Walsh Foreman, ua kōkua i ka hoʻohui ʻana i nā paia me ka hale kiʻi kiʻi, ma mua o nā kiʻi paʻa paʻa i ka paia i laina ʻia i mua o kahi pūʻali kipi ʻo Goya. Akā, aia nā mōhai: ua lilo nā kiʻi pena i hoʻonani i nā hale kiʻi hale kiʻi o Williams a me Watt i lilo i ʻāpana o nā lako. I koʻu nīnau ʻana i kahi lālā HDLU e pili ana i ka paʻi Leipzig mua o ka biennial, haʻi ʻo ia i kēlā contra-Leipzig, hauʻoli ʻo ia i ka hana ʻana o ka hui Dublin i ka papahele. 

I ka lā hope loa, ua kipa māua ʻo Mark O'Kelly i ka Hale Hōʻikeʻike ʻo Croatian Art Modern Art. Ma laila, loaʻa iā mākou ka manaʻo maoli o nā mana o ke Komohana - mai Pop a Conceptualism a i Neo-Expressionism - i hoʻokomo iā Croatia i ka wā i hele mai ai ke kūʻokoʻa a hele mai ke kaua i ke kaua. Ua hoʻomaka ka manaʻo no ke aha ʻo Brian Maguire i wāwahi ʻia i ke kaua, ʻo Patrick Graham's man vs myth maelstroms, a ʻo Mark O'Kelly (no ia) ke kiʻi kiʻi a me ke ʻano ʻino i ka hale ma ka pā. Ua ʻōlelo ʻo O'Kelly ʻo ka ʻokoʻa nui ma waena o ka pena kiʻi ma Kroasia a me ʻIlelani ma lalo o ke ʻano tonal. Akā ʻaʻole hiki iā mākou ke poina i ka kani ʻo ia ka mea e paʻa mau nei i ka moʻomeheu o kahi wahi, he leo mōʻaukala i loaʻa i kona mālamalama ponoʻī a me kona malu ma lalo o ka pena, ke kāwele, ke kau a me ka mea pena.

I kēlā pō, i ka wā o ke kamaʻilio ʻana o ka papa, ua kūkākūkā ʻia ke kumuhana o ka pilikia studio e hoʻopilikia nei i ke kūlanakauhale ʻo Dublin, a me ia, nā pilikia kūpono ʻole o ka lilo ʻana i mea pena kiʻi ma ka honua. Ma ke ʻano he hoʻonāukiuki, ua hoʻomau au i ke koʻikoʻi o ka 'mea pena' i ka poʻe panellist, e kū'ē i ka 'artist', ma ke ʻano like i hoʻolaʻa wale ʻia ka Zagreb Biennial i ka pena pena. Ua makemake au e ʻike he aha ia e he mea pena ma ke ano Heideggerian. ʻO nā mea hana, nā mea hana i kēlā me kēia lā, ka lā a me ka lā, ka kaʻawale, ka aloofness, ka individualism e wehewehe ana i ka mea pena ma mua o ka wai o ka nohona o ka mea pena. Ua wehe nā nīnau mai ka papahele i nā mea, e like me: "He aha ka pilikia nui āu i lawe ai no kāu kiʻi?" a i ʻole "ʻO ka hoʻohana ʻana i ka pena kiʻi ma ke ʻano kumu kumu no ke aʻo ʻana i ka hana noʻeau ka mea hoʻonaʻauao maikaʻi loa no ka hoʻokolohua ʻana i nā ʻano mea ʻē aʻe?" Akā ke waiho nei au me nā nīnau i pane ʻole ʻia e pili ana i ia mea e he mea pena. Manaʻo wau ʻaʻole mahalo ka poʻe pena kiʻi i ka ulu ʻana o ka enigma a lākou e hōʻike nei i kahi honua liʻiliʻi a liʻiliʻi. 

ʻO James Merrigan he mea pena kiʻi, hoʻohewa a hoʻoponopono i hoʻokumu ʻia ma Waterford City.
