The E2RD Gallery is continuing its several years’ long collaboration with the Ljubljana-based Atelje Galerija and launching an exhibition by Academy-trained sculptor Primož Pugelj. The Statues exhibition was opened on Friday, 6 February 2015 in the E2RD Gallery at Gosposka ulica 34 in Maribor. There, Primož Pugelj, MA, showcased to the Maribor audience two artworks that were created for the Expansion of Sculptural Structures exhibition. The artwork in question is the Divided 2 monumental sculpture (2014), which develops the idea of expanding the whole to its individual segments, where each maintains the logical proportions of the face (mask) while drawing attention to the psychological (internal) events in the individual. The linearly arranged sculpture Animal (2014) is a distributed set of progressively disappearing or transforming human figures that blend with images of animals. Smaller works are also on display – masks as small plastic items, which are a constant in Pugelj’s artistic creation. For the cultural holiday on 8 February 2015, we complemented the exhibition with the Sunday Breakfast with the Artist event, where Pugelj spoke about his artistic career and pieces of art.
