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.
