Ivica Capan examines the change in our perception of media images as well as artistically produced images in the digital age. Whether it is motifs from classical mythology and historical painting, iconic works of art history or characters from politics and pop culture, ws, are copied and saved or hidden in the depths of museum depots: from the moment they are produced, these pictures are subject to varying degrees of attention. Which mechanisms and circumstances lead to such ups and downs, pulsating more and more rapidly, on the barometer of attention? And how can long-time continuities of perception curves — both high and flat — be explained?
Even if the artist doubts the traditional production of pictures and therefore continuously challenges it anew, he nonetheless thinks “that painting is called upon to take on the difficult situation of visual oversaturation and brings along the experience and knowledge to create new things again."
