LUXEMBOURG. CROATIA. 'Waiting for the Revolution' by Sanja Ivekovic at Mudam Luxembourg
28/07/2012 10:55:00

As a central figure in the Croatian art scene, Sanja Ivekovic has been developing since the early 1970s a committed, engagé oeuvre, driven by concerns to do with the issues of gender, identity and memory. The exhibition Waiting for the Revolution, on view at Mudam Luxembourg until September 16, 2012, brings together a broad selection of works produced between 1975 and today. It is organized around two directions: a first group of works highlights the place occupied by the issues of the monument and collective memory in Ivekovic’s practice, while a second group, combining in particular her first series of photomontages with recent works using similar montage procedures, is concerned with the question of gender and the mechanisms of representation.

Ivekovic has also devised a new project for the public space, Freiheit ist… (2012), which echoes the stances that Lady Rosa of Luxembourg had given rise to in 2001. The whole sheds light on the way in which Ivekovic’s work, throughout her career, has been constructed in response to “states of emergency”: “I do not hand over answers but ask questions instead,” she says.

Sanja Ivekovic was born in 1949 in Zagreb, where she lives and works.

The exhibition, curated by Christophe Gallois and Enrico Lunghi, is part of MONO, an original cross-border initiative by fifteen modern and contemporary art venues in Luxembourg, France and Germany. Between 1 June and 2 September 2012, the collaborating venues will simultaneously present solo exhibitions by contemporary artists. www.mono2012.eu
