At its best, Vugrek’s work disturbs our usual perception of woman by giving the sculpture of a woman’s silhouette an additional dimension of depth, which from every angle of view attracts attention, evokes positive emotions and stirs the imagination.
Any sense of inadequacy of the exhibition quickly fades when looking at the sculptures of a dragon, skull of Cyclops unicorn, horse, spider on the wall, metal tree, flower, desk and chair with burned motif of skull. Reverting to a deep sense of play felt throughout the exhibition, we design and create our own silhouettes out of metal; or create a sculpture from found or discarded metal items.
The exhibition closed with the same initial values. As Josip Grđan states in the charming catalogue accompanying the exhibition: “Vugrek is a versatile artist…” who encourages us to look at his sculptures with the same sense of silence, same attention, same joy invisible on the outside that we experience as children.
