Magnus Larsson v galeriji Gregor Podnar // Magnus Larsson in the Gregor Podnar Gallery

Galerija Gregor Podnar gosti švedskega slikarja Magnusa Larssona (1972), dobitnika Beckerjeve štipendije leta 2003. Larsson impresionira s preprostimi portreti, karikiranimi proporci in okusnimi oljnimi slikami (platno, papir) nasploh. Res, ako portreti ne bi bili distortirani do meje karikature, bi človek z lahkoto prisegel, da gre za fotografijo. Slike terjajo ponovno inšpekcijo, saj se Larsson rad poigra in deformira stvari, ki so na prvi pogled videti normalne, kot npr. izbris nosu in ust, ali pa povečava oči. Če kdo nima kam s 15.000€, naj zavije na Kolodvorsko 6 in se založi s katero izmed njegovih razstavljenih del. Razstava, ki je doživela svojo otvoritev v petek, 19. 1. 2007 v Ljubljani, je Larssonova prva večja predstavitev zunaj Švedskih meja.

------------------

The Gregor Podnar Gallery is hosting the Swedish painter Magnus Larsson (1972), who was awarded Becker’s artist scholarship in 2003. Larsson impresses with his simple portraits, distorted proportions and tasty oils in general. Indeed, had the portraits not been distorted to the limits of charicature, one could easily mistake them for photographies. The paintings demand a second look, for Larsson wrings and contorts things that seem normal at first glance, like deleting a mouth and a nose, or perhaps increasing the eyes. If you got 15.000 to spend, why not go to Kolodvorska street in Ljubljana and stock up with an exhibited painting (or two). The exhibition, opened on Friday 19th, 2007, is Larsson's first international appearance.

Honey Talks in Udine // Sekira v medu v Udinah

Otvoritev v Vidmu je, kot je iz prilozenega razvidno, uspela. Nekateri ljudje so nekaj govorili (od naših Katra in Koco), pa je bilo kar znosno, saj ni bilo predolgo. Kaj pa gastronomija? Čebelar iz Martignacca je v gustiranje ponudil dve varianti kombiniranja sirov in medov, na šanku pa so točili tokaj (ta pravi, ne madzarski) in, se mi zdi, cabernet sauvignon. Balkon je zelo prijeten, nekoliko spominja na tistega v prvem nadstropju KUDa. Več pa naj povedo slike.

The opening in Udine was, as you can see, a success. There were some people talking (Koco and Katra from our team), but it was still bearable, speeches weren't too long. And gastronomy? A bee-keeper from Martignacco presented two combinations with cheese and honey and the wine bar was serving Tocai (the real one, not the Hungarian one) and Cabernet Sauvignon (I think). The balcony was very nice, it reminded me of the one KUD France Prešeren in Ljubljana has on the first floor. But let the pictures do the talking.
