ZORA MUŠIČ- SELECTED OPUS
IN SLOVENE PRIVATE COLLECTIOSN VI

THE EMBASSY OF SLOVENIA
10 LITTLE COLLEGE STREET LONDON, SW1P3 SH
THURSDAY, 7TH APRIL 2011 at 6 pm


Exhibition will be opened for public viewings from 8th April 2011 till 6th of May 2011 every Wednesday and Friday,

“The Slovenian Embassy and Zala Gallery is presenting the seventh exhibition of European artist Zoran Mušie
in London. The exhibition with only two dozen selected artworks is intended for connoisseurs and lovers of art.
The works of Mušie have been exhibited in London previously: Arthur Jeffress Gallery in 1955; Gallery One in
1961; Grosvenor Gallery in 1969; 12 Duke Street Gallery in 1980; Gimpel Fils in 1993; and at the Estorick
Collection of Modern Italian Art in 2000. It is also important to mention that his work is in the collection in the
most visited modern art gallery in the world, the Tate Modern in London. This is the first time in history that
Londoners have the opportunity to admire the artist\\\\\\\'s creative development over a time span of seventy years,
ranging from his student years at the Zagreb Academy to his friendship with François Mitterrand.

One special feature of the exhibition is that it accurately records each step of Mušie\\\\\\\'s life, from his childhood
experiences of the heartless arms of the great powers at the Soea (Isonzo) Front, encountering old and new
nations. Born in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, he was exiled from the Kingdom of Italy and the Republic of
Austria, experienced a period of Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, or the pre-war Yugoslavia, forged his
way through the occupation of fascist Italy and Nazi Germany, escaped the mould of communist Yugoslavia,
and without arms, with pencil and brush, managed to go beyond the historical aggression with a profound
message, with his visually transformed planes, with which he attained his life\\\\\\\'s goal. If Picasso was a strong
wind of creativity, then Mušie wanted to stay a calm, delicate breeze. The fragile images, breathed onto
canvas and paper as if touched by the wing of a butterfly, can only be encountered by each viewer on their
own.”
