Dorćol je svakako jedan od najstarijih delova grada a samim tim možda I najzanimljiviji. Njegovu istoriju možemo pratiti još od rimskog kastruma, preko turskog I jevrejskog naselja do savremenog doba. Dorćol obiluje najrazličitijim pričama I uvek je bio inspiracija onima koji tu žive. Svaka ulica I svaka zgrada kriju po neku zanimljivost pa je šetnja Dorćolom I po najsumornijem danu puna iznenađenja. Beogradski irski festival se svake godine trudi da posetiocima programa omogući ne samo otkrivanje irske već I otkrivanje zaboravljenih blaga Beograda. Uživajmo u Beogradu zajedno.

Live stream digitalna umetnost: DŽON DŽERARD

DŽON DŽERARD

MESTO: Kinoteka
ADRESA: Uzun Mirkova 1
DATUM: 12.03.2019.
VREME: 10:00

Projktovana na ulicu iz izloga galerije svakodnevna projekcija (osim nedelje) Džon Džerard je jedan od najaktuelnijih svetskih vizuelnih umetnika koji se bavi savremenim tehnologijama. Rođen je u Dablinu 1974 godine a studirao je u Oksfordu I Čikagu. Bio je deo prestižnih programa umetničkih rezidencija od Austrije do Kanade, a 2009 je bio pozvan na šestomesečnu rezidenciju Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten u Amsterdamu. Njegov pristup konstruisanju umetničkog dela je vrlo specifičan jer osim što se bavi problematičnim temama savremenog društva koristi i najsavremenije kompjuterske tehnologije. Džerardov način stvaranja dela podrazumeva kombinovanje na desetine hiljada digitalnih fotografija kojima rekonstruiše određene scene ili mesta kao digitalnu simulaciju. On upotrebljava tehnologiju koja se koristi u video igricama da bi se postigao efekat realnosti dok su njegove konstrukcije suštinski artificielne. One kombinuju sve ono što je za umetnika važno, čak i ono što možda ne postoji na datoj lokaciji u datom momentu, i na taj način stvara kritičnu masu informacija koje ono što vidimo čine hiper realnim i hiper kritičnim. Od 12.-17. marta, u okviru Beogradskog irskog festivala, imaćemo priliku da se po prvi put upoznamo sa radovima ovog umetnika. Digitalne simulacije će biti prikazane na lokaciji u centru grada.

JOHN GERRARD

VENUE: Kinoteka
ADDRESS: Uzun Mirkova 1
DATE: 12.03.2019.
TIME: 10:00

Daily live stream projections everyday except Sunday John Gerrard is an avant- garde and contemporary visual artist using the digital medium. Born in Dublin in 1974, he was part of some prestigious art residency programmes from Austria to Canada and was invited in 2009 to be a part of the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten residency in Amsterdam. His approach to producing his work is quite particular; not only does he evoke problematic topics of the contemporary society, he also uses the latest computer technology. Gerrard’s way of creating his art entails a combination of thousands upon thousands digital photographs with which he makes a digital simulation of certain scenes or places. He uses technology native to video games in order to achieve the effect of reality while his constructs are, in essence, artificial. It combines everything that is important to the artist, even if it does not exist, and that way creates the critical mass of information that makes what we see hyper-realistic and hyper-critical. From the 12th to the 17th March, at the Belgrade Irish Festival, we will get acquainted with the artworks, digital simulations will be played as a live stream in the city centre.


Ulična Umetnost: DŽEJMS ERLI

DŽEJMS ERLI

MESTO: Maršala Birjuzova 16
IN SITU: Svakodnevno 15-21.04. 2019.

Otkrivanje murala – 21. April 2019.

Hektični i eklektični urbani pejzaž Beograda sa kontrastima novog i starog, modernog i oronulog, je ispunjen sjajnim primerima street art-a i grafita koji Beograd trenutno čine jednim od najprivlačnijih prestonica Evrope. Ova vrlo živa scena dobiće još jednu prinovu koja će sa sigurnošću postati jedna od zaštitnih znakova Beograda. Mural na 180m kvadratnih u samom centru grada oslikaće irski street art umetnik Džejms Erli. Erli je umetnik koji je od 1997 godine bio deo irske graffiti scene gde je imao priliku da nauči kako da konstruiše velike formate i kako da se igra sa ekspresijom i improvizacijom. U istom periodu je pohađao Nacionalni koledž za umetnost i dizajn a kasnije je završio osnovne studije za vizuelnu komunikaciju. Iako je prestao da radi svoje slike bez dozvole ostao je u street art-u jer smatra da ne postoji ništa što može da zameni direktnu komunikaciju sa publikom na ulici. Osim toga njegova umetnost je snažno obeležena njegovim umetničkim nasleđem. Naime porodica Erly je tokom tri generacije kreirala i proizvodila vitraže koji i danas krase neke od najznačajnijih sakralnih objekata u Irskoj i Velikoj Britaniji. Njegov stil je stoga kombinacija principa i tehnika naučenih kroz graffiti kulturu i street art s jedne strane, i tradicije i tehnika naučenih kroz iskustva njegovih predaka koji su radili vitraže, s druge strane. Autor je najvećeg murala u Irskoj koji predstavlja celokupna fasada Blooms hotela u Dablinu koji se nalazi u popularnjom kraju Templ Bar. Prošle, 2018., godine u Dablinu je održana njegova prva samostalna izložba ‘Things Fall Apart’ na kojoj su prikazane njegove kreacije inspirisane vitražima i street art-om.

JAMES EARLEY

LOCATION: Maršala Birjuzova 16
ON SITE: Daily, 15-21.04. 2019.

Mural unveiling – 21th of April 2019.

Belgrade’s hectic and eclectic urban landscape with its mix of old and new, modern and decrepit is richly filled-in with distinct moments of street art and graffiti that make Belgrade one of most compelling capitals in Europe to visit today. This busy and living fabric is about to get an additional imprint with a signature piece on 180 m2 of wall in the heart of the city by Irish Street artist, James Earley. James has been a part of Dublin’s graffiti and street art scene since 1997 applying himself to large-scale urban formats and mastering expressionism and improvisation. He graduated from the National College of Art and Design (NCAD) in Dublin and has been painting his artworks (often without permission) ever since; remaining within the street art domain while dramatically staking his claim that, nothing can substitute direct contact with an audience! His street art style is strongly influenced by a family’s heritage creating and producing stained glass windows for three generations, and decorating some of the most prestigious sacral buildings in Ireland and the UK. His style, in turn, is a mixture of the principles and techniques acquired from graffiti culture and the skills inherited from his ancestors. James is the author of the largest mural in Ireland, the complete facade of Blooms hotel in Dublin’s popular downtown Temple Bar area. In 2018, he had his first solo exhibition in Dublin under the title ‘Things Fall Apart’, where audiences had a opportunity to see his creations inspired by stained glass..


BUDIMPEŠTANSKE KUĆE SA ŽUTOM ZVEZDOM

BUDIMPEŠTANSKE
KUĆE SA ŽUTOM ZVEZDOM

MESTO: Donja galerija ULUS-a
ADRESA: Knez Mihajlova 37
OTVARANJE: 17:30 09.03.2019.
DATUM: 09 – 31.03.

“Ove fotografije ulaza pokazuju nam otvore ka hektičnom gradskom pejzažu koji je obeležen nagomilanim dokazima o ljidskom stanovanju, ali gde su individualni životi primetni samo u njihovom odsustvu”. Kaže Dr Gven Džons (Arhiva fonda za otvoreno društvo, Budimpešta) u tekstu za izložbu. Fotografije Najdžela Svona beleže savremene ulaze zgrada u Budimpešti koji su nekada bili obeleženi žutom zvezdom i gde su jevrejske porodice bile bile ‘smeštene’ pre deportacije u logore smrti u poljskoj na kraju drugog svetskog rata. Tragovi vezani za ovu praksu su skoro u potpunosti nestali pa su čak i arhivski podatci vrlo oskudni. Irski fotograf Najdžel Svon, dugogodišnji stanovnik Budimpešte, nabasao je na listu ovih zgrada, dokumentovao ih i stvorio jedinstvene dokaze o njihovom postojanju. Bilo ih je više od 2000 i u njima je bilo smešteno oko 220.000 ljudi ali Nigel je za potrebe izlozbe odabrao 20 fotografija. Na njima vidimo obična gradska vrata u različitim stadijumima dekadekncije i očuvanosti ali ono što nedostaje su ljudi. Ova izložba nam otvara mogućnost suočavanja sa ‘posledicama zverstava u savremenim urbanim sredinama.’

YELLOW STAR
HOUSES OF BUDAPEST

VENUE: ULUS Gallery
ADDRESS: Knez Mihajlova 37
OPENING: 17:30 09.03.2019.
DATE: 09 – 31.03.

“These photographs of house entrances present us with openings in the hectic cityscape, inscribed with accumulated evidence of human inhabitation, but where individual lives are noticeable only in their absence: there are no people”, writes Dr Gwen Jones, Open Society Archives, Budapest, in her description of the Yellow Star Houses of Budapest photography exhibition. Nigel Swann’s photography captures the entrances to buildings in Budapest today, but which were once marked by a yellow star and where Jewish families were relocated before deportation the death camps in Poland at the end of WWII, “Evidence of the Yellow Star Houses has almost completely disappeared and archival sources are extremely rare. Irish photographer Nigel Swan, a long-term resident of Budapest, obtained the list of these houses, documented them and created a unique record of their existence today. Of the more than 2000 buildings that once housed over 220.000 people, Nigel has chosen twenty prints for this exhibition. Through these images we can see the regular city doors in different stages of decay but what is missing in the photos are people. This exhibition give us a possibility of confronting the “afterlife of atrocity in the contemporary urban environment”.


HRIŠĆANSTVO U IRSKOJ I SRBIJI

HRIŠĆANSTVO U
IRSKOJ I SRBIJI

MESTO: Savamala
OTVARANJE: 15:00 09.03.2019.
DATUM: 09 – 31.03.

Ova izložba na otvorenom koja će biti dostupna publici tokom marta, predstavlja primere i značenja hrišćanskih građevina i simbola u crkvenoj umetnosti u Irskoj i Srbiji. Uprkos veoma različitim kontekstima u prošlosti kao i velikoj udaljenosti, gde je jedna država ostvro okruženo okeanom a druga bez pristupa moru ali pozicionirana na jednom od najznačajnijih evropskih raskršća, na prikazanim fotografijama možemo naći velike sličnosti u arhitekturi manastirskih kompleksa, kula i zvonika, kamene plastike, isposnica i skitova, iluminiranih knjiga, nakita. Sve to upućuje na trans-evropske uticjaje hrišćanstva u toku srednjeg veka (5.-15. vek). Neki simboli, kao što je keltski krst (sa kružnom pozadinom), neverovatno podsećaju na pravoslavni ravnokraki krst koji je u srpskom pejzažu opšteprisutan. Krst Sv. Brigide, koji se u Irskoj tradicionalno pravi od biljke site, vrlo nalikuje na slovenski simbol kolovrata, koji kao i krst Sv. Brigide ima prehrišćanske korene a oba simbola su prihvaćena u hrišćanstvu. Izložba nam predočava sličnosti između ova dva primera hrišćanstva udaljenih evropskih kultura koje vidimo čak i kroz pejzaže oblikovane duhovnim podsticajima.

REPRESENTATIONS AND
MANIFESTATIONS OF CHRISTIANITY

VENUE: Savamala
OPENING: 15:00 09.03.2019.
DATE: 09 – 31.03.

This open air and public exhibition throughout March presents medieval Irish and Serbian representations and manifestations of Christianity. Despite vast distances apart and contexts; one a remote island surrounded by an ocean, the other landlocked and the strategically located at of one of Europe’s most important crossroads, the images presented draw on strong parallels between Christian monastic complexes, belfries, sculptures, anchorites, illuminated books, jewelry, and points to the trans European influence of Christianity during the medival periods, 5th to 15th Centuries. Some symbols such as the Irish Celtic cross (enveloped in a circle), bear a striking similarity to the Orthodox cross commonly seen across the landscape in Serbia. The cross of St Brigid, traditionally woven with rushes in Ireland, has a close resemblance the Slavic ‘kolovrat’, which like St Brigid’s has pre Christian origins and later adapted by Western and Eastern rites. The Exhibition shows close similarities between aspects of two distant European cultures representation of Christianity through the built landscape and shaped by formative religious forces.
