Ivana Režek's 11 Visions in Paris [109]

A group show of 11 contemporary lady artists on the subject of women and the aspects of femininity Ivana Režek, curator of the ABAD exhibitions in Zagreb and with co-curator with Natasa Stanisic for ABAD Sarajevo, has come to Paris with 11 Visions, a group show featuring 11 women artists from Eastern Europe.

The exhibition opened September 24 at Galerie Art'est, 96 Rue Quincampoix, Paris, France, 75003

Getting 11 women to detail their intimate and personal stories in paint, collage and photograph is quite a feat, not to mention getting them all to Paris.  The exhibition, conceived by Ivana, previously traveled to Berlin.

The group show covers two small rooms but details quite effectively the world of women: secrets, memories, hidden personalities, childhood fantasies, sometimes stepping into the realms of dreams, fantasy and fairytales, magic, witchcraft, and an identification with archetypal characters like deities, witches, and angels.

Artists: Tajči Čekada, Krešimira Gojanović, Anja Maleć, Marina Paulenka, Ivana Režek, Nataša Stanišić, Vesna ŠantakDiana Šimek, Bruna Tomšić, Martina Vrbanić, and Gabrijela Rukelj.
