Exhibition Opening | Viktor Daldon: Time Out

11.August @ 21:00 - 24.August @ 21:00

Viktor Daldon:Time Out

Time out Viktora Daldona označava stanje u koje smo donedavno svi bili uronjeni – neobičan zastoj mehanizama svakodnevnog žvrnja– pauzu koja je relativizirala niz stvari, a možda i otvorila neke nove vidike. Označava također i ponuđenu mogućnost ponovnog time outa u nepredvidljivim okolnostima i nesigurnom vremenu, ali i autobiografski opis vlastite umjetničke prakse – izlaska iz egzstencijalnih kodova u radni ambijent i prostore slikarstva.

Poetiku Viktora Daldona ponajprije prepoznajemo po urbanom naboju njegovih slika na kojima se sustavno događaju fragmentacije motiva, uslojavanje prostora slike, „slikanje“ riječi, te u likovni izraz prevedene sinkope i ritmovi jazza i njegovih suvremenih podvrsta. Umjetnik ponekad koristi šablone i uzorke zidnih tapeta, ispisuje uniformna slova i monokromnim površinama potpuno ukida slikarski duktus, a ponekad, upravo suprotno, žestoko djeluje na slikarsko platno – zapljuskuje ga bojom, rabi silovite poteze kistom, slika rukama, grebe i urezuje slikarsku površinu. Na djelima iz serije naslikanih „psovki“ , primjerice, radi autocenzuru obezobličenjem slova i slojevima boje, transponirajući izrečeno u sferu znakova. Za predstavljanje u kamenom ambijentu Sponze, umjetnik odabire uglavnom neizlagane radova većih dimenzija nastale u vremenskom rasponu od 2004. – 2020. godine, a uz slike na kojima dominira crno-bijeli registar, izlaže i one na kojima prevladavaju velike površine boje.

Viktor Daldon, painter

Viktor Daldon’s Time Out signifies a state in which all of us were immersed until recently – the unusual standstill of mechanisms of daily grind – the pause that relativised many things and perhaps even opened some new horizons. It also signifies the possibility of a repeated time out in unpredictable circumstances and insecure times, as well as the autobiographic description of author’s own artistic practice – exiting from existential codes into work environment and spaces of painting.

Viktor Daldon’s poetics is primarily characterised by urban charge of his paintings in which fragmentation of motifs, layering of space, ‘painting’ of words and translating syncopations and rhythms of jazz and its contemporary varieties into visual art systematically occur. The artist sometimes uses templates and wallpaper patterns, writes uniform letters and completely eliminates the element of painting by using monochrome surfaces, while sometimes he does just the opposite as he fiercely works the canvas – splattering it with paint, using intense brush movements, painting with his hands, scratching and carving the painting surface. In his works from the series of painted ‘swear words’, for example, he practiced self-censorship by stripping letters of their shape and using layers of paint, thus transposing what is said into the sphere of signs. For the purposes of the exhibition in the stone environment of Sponza Palace, the artist has selected mostly larger, as yet unexhibited works created in the period from 2004 to 2020; in addition to paintings dominated by black and white, those with prevailing large surfaces of colour are also displayed.
