Maša Bajc | Un-common Realities



Maša Bajc’s solo exhibition Un-common Realities will be open on Tuesday, May 23, 2017 at 19.00h in the PM Gallery of the Home of the Croatian Association of Artists.

Maša Bajc will present to the Croatian audience a series of large scale Photographies.

In the series of works titled Un-Common Realities, Maša Bajc uses photography as an ideal (auxiliary) means without which the memory process is impossible to imagine. The decision on the moment of capture perpetuates over a longer period of time, always anew, regardless of the time of day or place. Sometimes she takes photos while being in a space between, in the air, recording optical sensations that function as triggers for reading intimate states. A series of futile tracks left by a small dog on dunes may be related to the general human condition. But this may just be a trigger to recapitulate one’s own memory, invisible to the camera. (Sandra Križić Roban)

Exhibition will last until July 4, 2017.
