LEON VIDMAR Slovo

LEON VIDMAR: SLOVO/FAREWELL

  1. november-11.december, Galerija DLUL/DLUL Gallery, Breg 22

 

Razstavo Slovo sestavljajo fragmenti, ohranjeni ostanki istoimenskega filma, ki sami po sebi pričajo o nostalgiji, reminiscenci, bridkem spominu na preminuli čas mladega protagonista z njegovim dedkom. Skozi premišljeno izbiro kolorita ter materialov razstavljenih scenografij in lutk avtorju Leonu Vidmarju uspe zaobjeti duh slovesa do te mere, da ne preplavi samo junaka zgodbe, temveč tudi nas kot obiskovalce. Galerijski prostor se spremeni v bogat imaginarij avtorjevega narativa, ki ga v filmu uporabljena animirana filmska tehnika »sličica za sličico« le še poveže v subtilno pojmovanje slovesa.

 

Pri postavitvi artefaktov avtor sledi načelu naključnosti, kot se pojavlja pri spominu ali sanjah, kjer se sekvence vrstijo v neulovljivem, razumsko nelogičnem, a pomenljivem sosledju.

 

Razstavljeni fragmenti kljub nemosti spodbujajo obiskovalca k preiskovanju lastnih spominov, s pomočjo katerih se rekonstruirajo zgodbe, včasih bolj resnične od resničnosti same.

Farewell is an exhibition made up of fragments, the remains of an eponymous film, which in themselves speak of nostalgia, reminiscence, bitter memories of the times the young protagonist spent with his late grandpa. Leon Vidmar uses a well-thought-out colour palette and materials for the exhibited sets and puppets, managing to conjure up an atmosphere of goodbye to the point that it overwhelms not just the protagonist, but us as the visitors as well. The gallery space turns into a lush imagery of the author’s narrative, bound in the film by its stop motion animation technique into a fragile perception of leave-taking.

 

In arranging the items on display, the author follows the principle of arbitrariness, the kind seen in memories and dreams, where scenes seem to come in impalpable, irrational, but telling sequences.

 

Despite their muteness, the displayed fragments inspire visitors to explore their own memories. Out of these memories, stories are reconstructed, sometimes more real than reality itself.
