Zoran Pavelic: Der Zug nach Kassel, Four lighters 4

For the project “Der Zug nach Kassel – Kurator/Privatkollektion”, the artist took the role of the private art collector and the curator of the collection Kurator/Privatkollektion.

The collection Kurator/Privatkollektion resulted from the authors’ artistic life and work. The collection consists of various artifacts that Zoran Pavelić collects since 1995. They are always related to the Croatian contemporary art scene, Croatian artists, curators or art critics. All the works from the collection function as the references to the personalities, events or occurrences in art life in Croatia. In the collection there are the objects and art works that are given to author as a gift and there are also the objects that are found, or ready-made objects, author’s drawings,  paintings, photographs and photo-interventions, arts objects  – but always related to the artists, curator’s or critic’s life and work. In this sense the works from the collection function also as ‘links’ to the oeuvres of chosen personalities.
The collection very much depends on artist’s authorship and there is always an open possibility of an artistic intervention on the collections objects.
