Lauba’s project ‘PASS IT ON’ continues with the exhibitions of youth authors, and this time it showcases Dorian Pacak, a student at the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb. The opening of the exhibition ‘Dinostalgija’ will take place on Thursday, December 2nd at 7pm in bistro Lauba.



“In my thoughts I love to return to early childhood. Often I think of what I felt like back then and what brought me joy during my first days. Everything was much simpler; life mostly came down to play and through that play to unfelt learning; time moved slower and the world was far more colorful. These works are my homage to that time. They are trying to materialize it with the goal of evoking memories of a happier and more colorful time. I choose the dinosaur motive because that is what marked my childhood and awakened in me a curiosity for exploring the world. As a child I would often play with cheap, plastic interpretations of these long lost creatures and those toys remain bright and happy memories to which I return to with joy and which help me in solving ‘adult’ problems.”
