5th edition of the exhibition in the premises of the historic orphanage in Modra

Vajanského 77, Modra 900 01

The orphanage in Modra was established as a "nest of rescue", a refuge for orphans, homeless children. It was built based on the project of the well-known architect Dušan Jurkovič and was built thanks to the financial support for which the whole Slovakia was collecting. The initiator of the idea and the founder in 1913 was the Evangelical priest Samuel Zoch. The building ceased to serve its purpose in 1951. But it was not destroyed by the two world wars. It is currently empty because it needs to be renovated. The orphanage building is managed by the ECAV Church Choir in Modra. Thanks to its support, the Art Nouveau orphanage has been providing a haven for young artists since 2017. Once a year, it opens its gates and becomes an exhibition space with a strong genius loci. The initiator and main organizer of this year-to-year developed site-specific project is the art group S I R O T I N E C, whose members are connected by this place and their relationship to it. The theme of the 5th year of the exhibition is Repetition and Difference, to which young artists respond in their newly created works not only with regard to this historical place, but also under the influence of their own experience of the still current pandemic situation. The exhibiting authors, in addition to the members of the group, are another 30 young artists selected by public open-call selection. A special guest of the exhibition is Klaudia Kosziba. The gates of Orphanage 5 will open on Friday September 3rd at 3pm. The exhibition will be opened by curator Lucia Kotvanová. This year's Orphanage will also be enriched by a Saturday accompanying program in the form of a set of art performances by some exhibiting artists in the orphanage building and an evening screening of a selection of short films by VŠMU students in cooperation with the DaFilms platform at Lýceum - an independent center for cultural and educational activities.
