City Cemetry Mirogoj

The central event of Eurokaz 2009 is the production of the multimedia project Tertulia by Argentinean artists Nicolas Varchausky and Eduardo Molinari who accomplished in 2005 a similar project of the same title with great success in the famous Buenos Aires cemetry La Recoleta. This time with the artistic assistance of the dramaturge Saša Božić and collaborators, they will adapt it to the Croatian context and present it in the main Zagreb cemetry, Mirogoj, a mythical space which sums up individual and collective memory in an impressive architectural environment.
This exceptional, meditative project proposes a metaphorical conversation between us today and our ancestors and, with a series of audio and visual installations, aims at creating a common aesthetic experience in a specific, intimate landscape. Nicolas Varchausky traces the sounds of history and tradition which resonate in our contemporaneity. He creates a polyphonic labyrinth - a fugue, consisting of turbulences, voices, resonances: the computer system designs a sound landscape from the vanished corporeal and nominal mass of Zagreb/Croatian history. The data base of all those buried in Mirogoj is transformed into a system of sound notation. On the other hand, Eduardo Molinari transforms the space relationships into cabinets and observatories, discreet visual installations which incorporate objects, video and film interventions. They are like still life images which give a specific rhythm to our walks through the cemetry but also to rethinking of space and temporality.
The authors approach memory as a conceptual component of their artistic practice which is based on the idea that remembrance creates a new perception of the past event by delivering it to a new temporality. Or, to be more precise, the memory cannot return the past as it was, but it can open new possibilities of the past. Remembrance is like a living being, a sphere which has to be discovered and inhabited each time anew. The history is just a starting point and not the point of arrival.
