The title of Croatia's pavilion “Horizon Expectations” was derived from literary historian Hans Robert Jauss’s theory of reception.
Jauss argued that literary works are received against an existing horizon of expectations consisting of readers’ current knowledge and presuppositions about literature. As horizons shift, so does the meaning of the works... Artists Tina Gverović and Marko Tadić represent Croatia at the Fifty-Seventh Venice Biennale, which will be held until November 26. Apoteka director Branka Benčić curates the pavilion, and is organized by the Modern Gallery in Zagreb.
Tadić’s practice includes collages, cartoons, drawings and installations that often focus on the legacy of #modernismin the fields of art and architecture.
He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, Italy. Tadic has held solo and group exhibitions at venues in #Zagreb, #Ljubljana, #Vienna, #Kassel, #Utrecht, #Berlin, Los Angeles and New York. He holds teaching positions at Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb and NABA, Milano. He was born in 1979 in #Sisak, Croatia and lives and work in Zagreb.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a publication edited by Branka Benčić, with essays by Branka Benčić, Clemens Krummel and Marco Scotini and designed by Andro Giunio
