Vilim Halbarth, ‘A World After Us?’

An exhibition of welded metal sculpture by the Croatian artist Vlim Halbarth (b. 1970) who lives in Trogir and produces the work in the shipyard. The sculpture speaks symbolically of well-established ship-building traditions. Metal fragments and discarded pipes are shaped into bows or sterns, or other ship-like shapes. They speak directly and deliberately of an industry now in decline. Lost cultures surface too in the ‘Wall Compositions’ where the metal is used to symbolise old Slavonic writing. This is art as work and as cultural memory. Curated by Jelena Krivokapić and on now at the Gallery Beograd, Kosančićev venac 19, Belgrade www.galerijabeograd.org
