CIRCOLOQUADRO arte contemporanea is pleased to present Sunset Journeys, the first Italian solo show of Lidija Delic, curated by Marta Cereda, which will be inaugurated on Thursday 23rd March 2017.
The young artist, who currently lives and works in Belgrade, will be presenting her latest project in Milan: a series of paintings focusing on the idea of sunset as synthetic and symbolic representation of travelling, memory and flow of time.
The apparently banal subject of the works is on one hand emphasized through repetition and redundancy, while on the other hand is cancelled thanks to a painting technique that requires ability to wait and leads to outcomes never exactly the same.
Large size papers and an installation to highlight the subjective nature of time and the evanescence of memory, while the subject reminds of en plein air landscape painting as well as exotic landscapes’ postcards, collected and admired by the artist.
The new location of CIRCOLOQUADRO arte contemporanea, with a large window facing Corso Buenos Aires, establishes a relationship with the project, introducing a new key of interpretation: the flow of real time, that gradually illuminates the exposed artwork and then darkens it naturally.
Lidija Delic (Montenegro, 1986) lives and works in Belgrade, Serbia. After graduating in Painting from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade, she earned a PhD in Multimedia Art Department from the same University. Her work has been presented in solo and group shows, such as Interspace (Gallery 212, Belgrade, Serbia, 2016) and Diving (Espacio Trapezio, Madrid, Spain, 2015). In 2015 she was artist-in-residence in Lanaken (Belgium) at Glo’ Art Global Art Center and Madrid (Spain) at Intercambiador Acart. In 2017 she was selected for BJCEM, Biennale des jeunes créateurs de l’Europe et de la Méditerranée. She is cofounder of U10 Art Space.
