Gorgona

1959, 1966

“Gorgona was a harmonious community; in the ideological world it was concerned by emptiness (element present in all serious matters) without the ultimate goal, perhaps without purpose.”

[Josip Vaništa: New Notes, Gallery Kratis Edition, Zagreb, 2007]

 

Gorgona was non-conventional art group that was formed in the late ‘50s in Zagreb. The painters Julije Knifer, Marijan Jevšovar, Đuro Seder and Josip Vaništa used to get together regularly with sculptor Ivan Kožaric, architect Miljenko Horvat and art historians Dimitrije Bašičević Mangelos, Matko Meštrović and Radoslav Putar. This informal group was on the fringe of the art scene in former Yugoslavia, in voluntary isolation. Its members never issued a manifesto, nor collective goals. During the ‘60s, through their meetings, exchanges of ideas, and intellectual and spiritual ties, they began to create collective works and actions.
