ongoing TARWUK. Ante mare et terras

The show

Ante mare et terras is the first solo exhibition in Italy by New York-based Croatian artists TARWUK (Bruno Pogačnik Tremow and Ivana Vukšić), comprising four large-scale sculptures and a series of drawings displayed in the Pattern Room and on a long wall at Collezione Maramotti’s entrance.

TARWUK conceived the sculpture Tužni Rudar (2018) as the opening work in the project, the first phase of a process of metamorphosis that develops through the other three sculptures/stagings on display.

A constant depiction of the human form – exploring the multiple ways it can exist and the flowing, expressive quality of the body – represents the formal result of TARWUK’s deep, probing research into identity and the marks that memories and subconscious tensions leave on our bodies, shaping them physically.

Different levels and layers of times and materials coexist in their shape-shifting works, balancing being and becoming. The sculptures seem to originate from an archaeological and totemic past full of fragments and relics, which, filtered through a subjective yet universal reflection from the present, are transformed into tormented futuristic – perhaps even dystopian – fantasy creatures.
