About the ArtWalks project
ArtWalks, the focus of the exhibition, offers visitors a unique interactive art experience. It emphasizes ZeVu’s desire to liberate art from conventional exhibition spaces and from the dominant Western system of contemporary art in general. Fusing with her work, she seeks to maintain its independence and preserve freedom of artistic creation.
About the musical performance
(June 18th, 2022, 8 PM)
During the ten days of the exhibition, several artistic events will be organized, including the performances of the duo PUERTO FLAMENCO from Seville and the prominent Serbian concert pianist and composer Irina Dečermić, on the 18ᵗʰ of June at 8 p.m.
Andrej, who was born in Belgrade, and his wife Francesca “La Chica” comprise both PUERTO FLAMENCO and the famous Maltese folk-fusion band ETNIKA. They have led flamenco master classes in Spain, the United Kingdom, the United States, Germany, the Netherlands, Australia, Malta, the Baltic states, Thailand, Japan, and Morocco. This artist-couple offers a unique rhythmic connection to and deep understanding of art form which stem from 25 years of working together across five continents, where they have participated in prominent festivals including The Montreux Jazz Festival, WOMAD Festival, Biennale de Sevilla, Festival de Jerez, and at the Sydney Opera House.
Irina Dečermić's career spans more than 30 years. Her passion for music has led her to a new adventure: the exploration of sound. This performance is dedicated to combining sound, frequencies, and vibrations with movement.
