Silvije Arc Popovič. Sculptures and Objects

14. 6. 2002 – 7. 7. 2002

Popovič’s works, despite being made from seemingly inexpensive and common everyday materials, nevertheless attain an entirely different artistic status of a painting, a collage, a drawing which is marked by a shift from two-dimensional surface of a painting into a three-dimensional spatial object, an artifact or a small size sculpture. In this way Silvije Arc Popovič has – in his own way – defined the question of spatial effect on the part of a work-of-art which is one of the most fundamental modernist principles of artistic creative work..
