AMBIENTAL AUDIO-VIDEO INSTALLATION

Exhibition opening and artist talk: Monday, September 22nd 2014, 8pm @ Pogon Jedinstvo, Trnjanski nasip bb, Zagreb
The exhibition is open on September 23rd and 24th, from 5pm to 9pm 
Free entrance 

Mochvara Gallery enters the fall season of 2014 deliriously flooded! Aqueous is an ambiental audio-visual installation by the young Split artist Toni Mijač, cordially inviting you to dive deep into intense states of consciousness and extraordinary emotions of the overwhelming and exaggerated water surfaces. The visual purity and simplicity of the water is activated by alternating drops coordinated and accompanied by sounds of soothing rhythmic episodes which interchange with intense sounds and fast motion picture tempo, creating a minimalist sound composition rich in tone and rhythm dynamics. The instrument functions as a set of percussions while the drops act as drums creating a sound effect on visual channels coordinate, according to their coloristic features, with the tones of the instrument. Visitors will have to opportunity to dive into this magical aquatic ambiental experience on Monday, September 22nd 2014 from 8pm at the exhibition opening and artist talk with Toni Mijač who will be discussing his fascination with water and sound as well as the relation between ambiance and performative arts. The exhibition will also be open on September 23rd and 24th from 5pm to 9pm. The project is realised within the Sound Art Incubator 2014 – production platform by Mochvara Gallery.

PRODUCTION PLATFORM

>>> exhibition, performance, happening, presentations and artist talks

Monday, June 9th – Thursday, June 12th, 2014
exibition opening
: Monday, 09.06.2014, at 8:00 pm
@ large & small hall of Pogon Jedinstvo
The exhibition is open June 10th -12th, from 5:00 pm to 8:30 pm
free entrance

The second year of the Sound Art Incubator project will present new artworks by young Croatian authors exploring sound as their art medium of choice. After the Incubator project pilot successful packed the large hall of Pogon Jedinstvo in 2013 by merging sound art, DIY art practices, biohacking and field recording, this year's newest sound experiences are brought to Mochvara Gallery by Hrvoslava Brkušić, Božo Katić, Niko Mihaljević, Lucija Ukić, Sanja Gergorić, Roko Crnić and Radiona.org. Young sound art progressives from Rijeka, Split and Zagreb will bring to fruit interactive sound installations, collaboration sound projects, performances and happenings which will present the audience with their explorations of various sound phenomena – from deconstruction of opera singing, swarming of biological organisms and melodic Istrian dialects, all the way to toy hacking and soundscaping city horizons. In the days following the official opening of Incubator which is part of the Mochvara Club's 15th birthday programme celebration, young artists will present their works and introduce the audience with the particular context their works were created in, all through cosy and relaxed artist talks. From silent swarming, voices, noise, melody and murmurs, Sound Art Incubator delivers once more innovative, witty, exciting and sound saturated contemporary art practices of young authors who will surely be a topic of many art conversations to come.

EXTRAVAGANT BODIES: EXTRAVAGANT AGE
Inspiring old age – body and mind on the fringes of social norms
Extravagant bodies is an international festival held triennially in Zagreb, Croatia since 2007. It deals with the ways in which society sets the boundaries of the normal and the pathological, whether of corporeality, appearance, behaviour, sexuality or life style. In its first edition in 2007, the festival dealt with physical disability and in the second in 2010 with mental and psychic health. The theme of the upcoming festival Extravagant bodies: Extravagant age is old age, that is, the individual experiences and social implications of what is called the third and the fourth age. Old age, of course, is not considered a disorder, rather an inevitable phase in each life that has not ended prematurely already. However, because of the health, physical and psychic changes that it brings, and because of the very fact that old age leads to death, it and its signs arouse a repugnance comparable with that engendered by the body or mind located beyond social norms.
