The International Centre of Graphic Arts hosts the artist Honza Zamojski with the exhibition Middleman. Zamojski received the Audience Award of the 33rd Ljubljana Biennial of Graphic Arts, Crack Up – Crack Down (2019) for his installation The Gathering and The Meeting. It was on view at the DUM Project Space.
Middleman plays various roles. He is a viewer who, upon entering the exhibition space, stands in the middle of the symmetrical architecture. He is also an author who mediates between the world of ideas and the material world by creating drawings, sculptures and texts. Middleman is also visualised as a simplistic and symbolic puppet that can be moved by various forces.
Essentially a site-specific installation, the exhibition takes place not only within the symmetry of architecture but often in relation to the symmetry (or asymmetry) of a sheet of paper, a word and a human figure. An attentive viewer will notice that the further one moves away from the centre of the exhibition, the brighter it is and the more there is to see. You could even say that the narrative explodes, and what tries to put it back together again is the Middleman holding the collapsing world with all his might.
The exhibition will be on view until 28 May 2023.
