The exhibition cycle “Send on” of the House for People and Art Lauba, in which young authors have the opportunity to present themselves to the public, continues on Thursday, February 10, with the exhibition “Only Dreams” by Tara Stanić, reports Večernji List.
”In these works, I transfer my own dreams into reality by focusing on the atmosphere and emotion I had at that moment”, mentioned Stanić in the announcement of the exhibition.
”I wake up from sleep with an intense feeling that accompanies me through the morning and day. In the process of waking up, I remember situations, dialogues, and emotions from dreams, and sometimes I try to discern what they were with difficulty. To prevent dreams from fading from memory, I write them down. However, certain dreams are etched in my memory for years. I am fascinated by the way dreams intertwine with each other, and how detailed and vivid they are in their unreality. I draw inspiration from their apparent incoherence, meaning, my own thoughts, dialogue, and their bizarreness. In these works, I translate my own dreams into reality by focusing on the atmosphere and emotion I had at the time”, says Stanić about her work.
Tara Stanić was born in Zagreb in 1998 and graduated from the School of Applied Arts and Design in Zagreb. She is a student at the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb at the Department of Fine Arts, majoring in graphics in the class of Professor Igor Čabraja (second year of graduate studies). Through graphics, illustration, comics, and painting, she explores the grotesque, the fantastic, alienation, and loneliness. Using narration, imaginary monsters and the dream realm combine the unusual, the creepy, and the witty. She has participated in group exhibitions in Zagreb (ALU, 2018-21) and Antwerp (Royal Academy of Fine Arts 2019, TICK TACK Gallery, 2020) where she has been part of the Erasmus + program (2019).
