MIKLAVŽ KOMELJ: "A svet naj se konča, če pozabim" - June 2021

Dr. Miklavž Komelj, art historian, poet, translator, writer, and essayist presents his paintings in the Gallery of the National Institute for Chemistry. The intimacy of these formats, the strokes, the symbolism involved in chromaticity, sometimes even collaged and intertwined with parts of photographed images, is in great contrast to the suggestiveness of these small works. Namely, when we focus on these images, we get a sense of monumentality, almost magnificent religious, ritual icons, in which images of women or animals, plants or parts of architecture appear as if they were scenes from ancient temples, where the most fundamental feelings of faith are depicted. Indescribable traces of absolute religion without counting on effect.
