Bojan Golčar



Maribor / Slovenija




Bojan Golčar, r. 1966 v Mariboru. S fotografijo se ukvarja od konca 80. let, sprva na področju gledališke fotografije. Dela iz gledaliških predstav Igorja Štromajerja, nastala v tem obdobju, je prvič razstavil v Cankarjevem domu v Ljubljani in nato v takratnem Foto salonu v Mariboru (Pogled pogleda, 1993/94). Sledil je avtorski projekt v sodelovanju s plesalko in koreografijo Mojco Kasjak z naslovom Medprostori teles (Umetnostna galerija Maribor, Razstavišče tehniških fakultet, 1997). Na področje avtorske fotografije je ponovno vstopil leta 2017 s fotomonografijo Usedline in sledovi, izdano pri Založbi Litera, ki je posvečena Mariboru v katerem živi. Knjigo dopolnujejo besedila Bojane Kunst. Spremljale so jo razstave v Likovnem razstavišču UKM in v Galeriji Epeka in Layerjevi hiši). Sledili sta seriji Onkraj tišine (Foto galerija Stolp, 2017 in Layerjeva hiša) in Posledice, ki je objavljena v knjigi, ki je izšla v samozaložbi in se dotika vprašanj ekološke in podnebne problematike. Spremno besedo je prispevala Tatjana Pregl Kobe. Serija je bila razstavljena v okviru Festivala fotografije Maribor, 2019, v Galeriji Inštituta Jožef Stefan v Ljubljani in v Knjižnici Urbanističnega inštituta v Ljubljani. V času "lockdown-a" je nastala serija z naslovom Te dni. V nastajanju je serija Postcards From Out There, ki nadaljuje njegov klic k resnemu obravnavanju problemov, ki ogrožajo prihodnost planeta in našega obstoja.

Everything that has affected me throughout my life and altered the way I look at things surrounding me, from society to culture and art. The majority of my work consists of photographic series. I'm creating narratives and depicting them by employing the medium of photography. Most of the work displayed here comes from a collection titled "Traces and Sediments," which I devoted to my home city of Maribor. It's is where I was born, brought up, and where I still work and live. Needless to say, it most definitely shaped my creative vision. Once back in socialist times, an industrial powerhouse of former Yugoslavia, now after many years of independence and economic collapse, still searching for its identity unlike the more established Ljubljana, Slovene capital. Together with Bojana Kunst (monograph Traces and Sediments), we explored the story of a city stretched between rural and urban on its quest for identity. Similarly, my other series convey messages dealing with social issues, such as the importance of cultural heritage preservation, revitalization of abandoned infrastructure and degraded areas (Beyond the Silence), and matters of nature preservation and global changes (Consequences). Latter was also published as an artist monograph. My first encounters with photography reach well back at the end of the 80s. During these times, I would explore theatre photography while also gaining interest in studio photography. After a long break, I returned to my creative path in 2017 with the book Traces and Sediments. I enjoy all elements of creation, from capturing to post-production, which enables me to shape my intended message or make it more apparent. My inspiration lies in the challenge represented by a new idea or narrative. I grab the camera and begin to capture motives which themselves furthermore stimulate my decisions when it comes to the transformation into the imagery I finally present to the public. Whenever I see people, even if just a few, being moved by the message I wanted to convey, I'm content. This is what ultimately drives me to continue. My most recent creative effort named "These Days" was produced during this anxious time of the epidemic.
