New tenants at the old addresses … and the other way around
Once (and long ago), the artists were passing through the phases of their work as if they were some celestial bodies following a proper destiny of change. And yet today, instead of this one way journey across the various topics, artistic expressions and semiotic systems, the creative interest is migrating from one medium to another.
In view of the sculptor Stanko Pavleski (1959, Erekovci, Prilep), the space of Mala Galerija is but a passing address to those migrations, while the exhibited objects are a new life of his own documents and recollections on the fleeting creative instances. The date with the public is actually taking place at a phony address which is delivered as an ambiguous wordplay.
The themes of Pavleski are constantly rebuilding in the face-off with the other. The author’s current context of explanation is the theme of misunderstandings between the fragile work of art and the social expectations. That is to say, as long as the characters and events from his passion play are not taken elsewhere.
