Danijela Šušak : Vasko Lipovac – Tactile Interpretations, 04/04 – 02/05, 2017
Exhibition Danijela Šušak : Vasko Lipovac, Tactile Interpretations opened at the Typhlological Museum on 4 April, 2017 at 7 p.m.
The author of the exhibition concept, Morana Vouk, curator at the Typhlological Museum, and Danijela Šušak, art pedagogist, created an exhibition which, apart from the original artwork of Vasko Lipovac, showed tactile interpretations of his work created by young artist Danijela Šušak.
The tactile experience of a work of art is a unique experience for everyone, not only the visually impaired. The reduced form of characteristic characters from Lipovac’s opus became an ideal basis for tactile adaptation. Relief interpretations of artwork serve as mediators of the visual and enable a riched experience of artwork.
The visitors will have the chance to explore his paintings, not only his sculptures. Using new technologies, surface works have been redone and presented as reliefs using the so-called “blind print” and fully adapted to the visually impaired. The sighted visitors will also be able to experience art in this manner. Tanja Parlov
Lipovac imagined many of his works not on a pedestal but on the street we walk on, hoping to hug them or at least touch them. This is, I believe, the first time they actually invite us to do it. Joško Belamarić
Exhibition opened until 2 May, 2017.
