PAV is pleased to present Heliopolis , a solo exhibition by Croatian artist Marko Tadić (1979) curated by Marco Scotini . The exhibition is part of an annual program that sees reuse and circularity not only as an ecological and cultural strategy, but above all as a utopian means of survival.

Marko Tadić's work rereads the history of Yugoslavian socialist modernism through comparison with the practices of great authors who operated at the end of the 1950s in Croatia, among them the avant-garde designer, sculptor and architect Vyaceslav Richter (1917 – 2002) and the filmmaker Vladimir Kristl (1923 – 2004) of the Zagreb Animation School, recognized as one of the cornerstones in Europe. Through a methodology that attempts to "make History starting from the waste of History" - as Walter Benjamin would have said, quoting Goncourt - Tadić identifies in the inert residues of memory an active potential useful for rereading and generating new possibilities of narration. Through the reuse and reworking of vintage objects such as postcards, geographical maps, slides, notebooks and personal photographic archives, Tadić brings to light a submerged archive on which he intervenes by overwriting.

The exhibition conceived specifically for the PAV includes a nucleus of works by the artist dedicated to the interaction with the thought of Vjenceslav Richter , one of the founding members of EXAT 51 avant-garde group of artists, architects, designers and theorists active in Zagreb between 1950 and 1956 which intended to promote and achieve a synthesis and intersection between all art forms. Richter, of whom a series of original works are present in the exhibition, dedicated almost two decades of his life to the improvement of techno-utopian projects in the urban planning field that attempted to respond, through planning, to the specific needs of a socialist society. In Richter's utopian city what you need is within reach and planning responds to the need to reduce mobility times to ensure more free time.
