    Viktor Popović


    Viktor Popović (1972) studied painting at the Zagreb Academy of Fine Arts and graduated in 1996. He teaches at the Art Academy in Split. The works exhibited at Galženica were made after the artist's return from New York. It is a series of photographs of New York printed on matted lead plates so that the original loses most of its iconic potential (color, clarity, intensity). A red partial cube has been drawn over the printed image by hand. The clash of different forms of image representation (photograph and drawing) in fact quotes modernist artistic aporias, leaving them unresolved.

    Viktor Popović has been exhibiting his work since 1996 and won the Grand Prix at the 8th triennal of Croatian sculpture in 2003.
