Dialogue (A Form of an Answer)

External activities |  Hristina Ivanoska and Yane Calovski | exhibition Dialogue (A Form of an Answer), curated by Branka Bencic and organized by Tihomir Milovac, and Vanja Žanko Museum of Contemporary Art, Zagreb, Croatia, 25 November 2017.

The  Dialogue (A Form of an Answer) exhibition is a second of a tri-part series of exhibition conceptualized to gather and map individual and collective interest of the artists geared toward politics of art production and the institutional contexts in which they act. 

The first part of the exhibition process was the installation Prologue (A Form of a Question) realized in September and October in Apoteka – Space for contemporary Art in Vodnjan, while the third and final chapter titled Epilogue (form of an argument) will be staged at Press to Exit Project Space and Museum of Contemporary Art in Skopje in 2018. 

Dialogue (A Form of an Answer) brings together selected artworks from the recent artistic production by Yane Calovski and Hristina Ivanoska including “We Are All In This Alone” exhibited at the 56. Venice Biennial – Pavilion of the Republic of Macedonia, 2015, “Unspoken”, Malmö Konstmuseum, 2015, “To Fold Within As To Hide”, Bauhaus Foundation Dessau, 2015, and “A Form Of An Answer”, Sculpture Space, NY, 2016. The exhibition display at the Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb is imagined to revisit and rearrange their artistic practice in-situ, creating a contextual framework in the galleries of Museum’s permanent collection, unfolding the exhibition as a fragmented ‘retrospective’ view. By loosely connecting selected artworks, through fissures and highlights, the works establish new visible and invisible connections. 

The artistic practice of the internationally recognized Macedonian artists Yane Calovski and Hristina Ivanoska is complex and contextual. It is engaged with issues and concepts of architecture, history and art theory, political reality, so it can create new process productions, storyline of displays and new knowledge. Their works are created in different media from drawing and text to object, installation and video.
