Goran Turnšek: Repressed Memory



We kindly invite you to the opening of the photography exhibition of Goran Turnšek on Thursday, December 1, 2022, at 6 p.m. in the Mihelič gallery in Ptuj.

The artist Goran Turnšek, who lives and works in the Netherlands, presents himself at his first solo exhibition in the Mihelič Gallery with photographs of self-portraits in which he imitates his late grandfather and grandmother. He photographs repressed childhood memories that are the result of a traumatic experience. He photographed his grandfather’s life in the classic way from a tripod with a self-timer, thus emphasizing his alienation and detached personality. Grandma’s life is captured in a modern way, in the form of a selfie, as she was much more spontaneous and full of life. The abandoned homestead from the 1970s with furnished rooms, which Jakob and Marija built in Zabovci, is used as a film scene in the project.
The last exhibition of this year that we have prepared for you, with a special opening event and at the same time with good wishes for the coming year, so don’t miss it.
Stanka Gačnik

On view until January 29, 2023.
