Dmitry Sherman – art photography

October 7, 2018

What people who create things of value have in common is their passion for what they do. A small art spot on Panská 17 in Bratislava with an interesting story itself, CT art gallery (the name comes from the “compress time” technique), hosts unique artists.

When was the last time you saw a classic white photography, processed the traditional way? In the period  7 Oct. – 4 Nov. 2018 you may do so at the said gallery and enjoy the art photography of Dmitry Sherman, a graduate of the Moscow Architecture Institute.

Photography. Carpe diem. This very moment. Now … Continuum … Eternity.

If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, art is in the soul of the artist.

Bubblegum

October 6, 2018

Some Bulgarian movies give an artistic insight into childhood under communism, dreams and illusions then, and today’s reality. Such is the case of 2017 movie “Bubblegum” [original title: Дъвка за балончета], directed by Stansilav Todorov. Two parallel stories, intricately interwoven, one about protagonists’ past, the other – their current fairy tale. A movie about the love we are desperately trying to forget. Loved every minute of it.

Driny cave

Nature’s wonders are endless. Almost all stalagmite and stalactite formations have a way of triggering one’s imagination. This Babel Tower 🙂 in the picturesque Jaskyňa Driny (Malé KarpatyWest Slovakia) is no exception.

Maria Theresa

Maria Theresa (1717-1780), the Archduchess of Austria and the Queen of Hungary and Bohemia, was only 23 years old when she ascended to the Austrian throne in 1740, governing the Habsburg monarchy single-handedly. An ardent reformer of education, Austria’s military efficiency, medicine, civil rights, etc.

This engaging 2017 movie, with English subtitles, on her 40-year reign can be watched online >>>


Biela noc

September 29, 2018

Nuit Blanche (Biela Noc) Bratislava 2018 was a spectacular event, showcasing the importance of art in public space and popularizing contemporary art. With artists from around the world, every installation was offering a different sensation – be it immersing in colourful rain or floating through space and time. My experience in 2 minutes.


Komárno

September 22, 2018

In Komárno, Slovakia’s principal port on the Danube, one can taste both Hungarian and Slovak flavours. The charming town is situated at the confluence of the Danube and the Váh rivers.

Europe Square in the town’s centre represents building styles typical of different European countries – Wales, Vatican, Ireland, Italy, Transylvania, Iceland or Greenland. The Millennium fountain contributes to the pleasant multi cultural atmosphere.
