Until September, Kempinski hotels in the region will present a selection of local artists and their creations, including paintings, sculptures and photography focusing on the theme of an extraordinary European elegance.
Finger on the trigger, finding the right time when a motif is possible, anxious expectation of catching adequate light and composition control. To photograph (the word derives from the Greek words φωτος: photos - light and γραφις: graphis - a pen or γρφη: Graph - drawing with light) is to write with the help of light and only a few and persistent know the real play of light and shadow. Dean Dubokovič is certainly the photographer to whom the play of light and shadow is a challenge and the possibility of the idea that in its specificity is realized on paper or nowadays in digital format. This idea becomes visible, tactile, sensual and part of us as viewers.
In collaboration with designer Andrej Troha who is involved as curator of the exhibition and is often present in conceptualizing Dean photographic life, the veil unfolds before us a whole new meaning.
In the present exhibition of Dean Duboković "Kempinski art weeks" there is focus on the subtlety of the moment and focus on the details of pursued photographic object. There is descent from the integrity of the whole view, into the heart of the meaning. The interest in the detail of the photographic object is pursued and it is in the centre of the trigger. The eye is not looking for comfort in a beautiful, aesthetic, harmonious and symmetrical object, which maintains the integrity of the sense or easy recognition. Photographic view at this time focuses on a particular segment, a detail that exudes a feeling of the photographic moment the and replacement of a individual meaning in a specific context, driven by an object in the photographer.
The present Dean's triptychs are mature stories; there are a journey through time and space of the artistic itself. If we were accustomed to the presence of Dean women as objects of interest in the photographic display and focus on extrospection is now time for a change. These time when the fuse objective external surroundings, photographers and technical entity shutter photographic story of emphasis on introspection. The pursuit of the story, looking for some continuity in terms of its own self, is the main theme of the current exhibition. It is a story that is looking for meaning beyond the individual photos or individual image. Dean Dubokovič seeks to develop the story in the complexity of different and complementary images. They are stories that play with the meaning and by the importance of game what makes us human, and that is what is always interesting.
