The group ФОРМА – FORMA exhibition will be opened at 19H at GIR Store on October 18th and it represents a new chapter of GIR space, which will, in this way, for the first time establish itself as an exhibition space.
Within the ФОРМА – FORMA exhibition, as a kind of a retrospect on the modern art scene, 10 artists of a younger generation, whose work questions the possibilities (and boundaries) of abstract and figurative artistic expression, will present themselves through different mediums and artistic expressions. This will also be an exhibition where some works will be on sale. The exhibition will end on November the 18th.
GIR Store emerged from a family business of furniture manufacturers with factory based in Kraljevo. GIR Store in Belgrade functions as a unique retail multi-brand center, incorporating all types of household products – from furniture and lighting to artwork and accessories. This exclusive urban setting is a meeting place for designers and manufacturers that exchange and implement ideas. With the idea of uniting all arts (gesamtkunstwerk) GIR Store aims towards the development of the artistic market and mapping the domestic art scene.
The exhibition is commercial and it presents a great opportunity for the home public to get to know the modern art scene of a younger generation of artists.
The idea of the exhibition, as its name already suggests, is looking at form as a technical and formal element connecting different techniques and individual authors. With this exhibition, the artists present their views of formal elements in different media which include: graphics, photography, collages, digital work, sculpture, and also the site-specific installations. Even though selected artists use different materials, techniques, and work in different dimensions, the displaying concept questions the possibility of a contemporary abstract and figurative expression in different formal elements incorporating itself into a wider context of this unique space. At the same time, the exhibition concept represents a kind of a retrospect of the contemporary art scene.
