Ivana Franke, a master of enormous spatial installations and graphics that are mathematically precise yet deceptive to the eye, is exhibiting in Lauba until Monday, May 2nd. The exhibition ‘Apercepcija’ contains several works from Lauba’s collection, as well as some newer and older works available for acquisition, with which one of the most important representatives of Croatia’s contemporary art scene in the world dissects, questions, and plays with our perception and cognitive processes.


Ivana Franke’s visually intriguing and conceptually detailed work, through which she often threads transparent materials of particular light properties like flax, has been recognized by numerous art institutions of immense caliber – MoMA PS1 in New York, the Deutsche Guggenheim museum in Berlin, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, the Reykjavik Art Museum in Iceland and the Sharjah Art Foundation in the Emirates, among others, and she has exhibited at Manifest 7 in Bolzano, the Shanghai Biennale, Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona, and the Église Saint-Nicolas de Caen church, a protected monument in Normandy.


The House for People and Art will be filled with graphics and prints on aluminum, plexiglass, and paper, spatial constructions of divergent light refractions, and imposing, dark installations previously exhibited in Italy, France, and at the 52nd Venice Biennale for just a few more days. So don’t miss out on ‘Apercepcija’ and stay in the dark metaphorically, but do so literally, by exploring Franke’s installations Latency and Instants of Visibility, guided by subtle yet complex light elements.

Due to large interest, the exhibition will also be open on Sunday, May 1st, so it will be open for view every day ending on Monday, May 2nd from 12 to 9 PM.
