My Type of Type







UKOLIKO NISTE otisli na Petricicevu retrospektivu u MPU, imate fore jos danas do 5 popodne i sutra od 10-14h. Ja sam je pretabala posteno i napravila dodatak i update svojoj kolekciji. Petricicev rad je ostao jedna od retkih stvari koje jos uvek imam potrebu da prikupljam. Cini mi se da je to zato sto njegov rad pravi prikaz kvaliteta i kontinuiteta na koji se treba ugledati, prikazuje posebnost izraza i individualnost duha, sustinsku ljubav prema poslu i marljivost koja proizvodi lagane vedre rezultate koji kao da su iz prve ispali iz cetke, pera, flomastera. Srz Petricicevog rada mi je anker koji, kad god se zaljuljam, potvrdjuje vrednosti na kojima sam rasla, kao beskonacno prisustvo roditelja gledano iz perspektive srecnog deteta.



Atmosfera se moze opisati vrlo jednostavno, u samo par slika - veeeeliki crtezi koji svetle gledani iznutra, prosvetljeni dnevnom svetloscu, cine da se osetis maleno, kao neko dete. Kao da sanjas ili se secas. Ljudi su stajali na ulici kada ugledaju ove ilustracije sa onim osmehom koji kaze "eeeee!". Na izlozbu su dolazile zajedno tri generacije i jednako snazno, sa razlicitim lepim asocijacijama smesile se isto kao likovi naspram njih.


Koliko god je bilo prijatno videti stare ilustracije, odstampane i jos vise originale, pa i nove americke osvrte na politicke aktuelnosti, ovo je jedna od najvrednijih stvari koje sam ulovila na izlozbi. Upravo su ovo moje Family Values.


Jedan veeeeliki tabak sa gomilicom razne male dece kao da je univerzalni portret grupe iz predskolskog. Ili upravo tog vremena. Takvi smo bili - mali, jednostavni, razliciti, sareni, zadovoljni. Ili je to tako u mojoj glavi...

Kad dodje vreme za sumiranje, kada se samo secas i osvrces, onda si zavrsio. Za mene ovo nije zal za mlados', jednostavno sreca sto kad na kratko bacim pogled unazad vidim zaista srecno detinjstvo najdirektvnije opisivo drugima kroz Petricicev opus za decu. Rasli smo sa Poletarcem koji nas je formirao a ne ukalupljivao, cinio da budemo vizljasti i snalazljivi klinci. Od malena su nam po glavi u ritmu jos uvek neobicno jedinstvene Laboratorije zvuka trcale, rasipale se i ponovo okupljale Petriciceve ilustracije i u slikama stopljena najrazlicitija slova... Hm, mozda je tada pocelo to sve sa mnom i slovima... Jedno ogromno HVALA Dusanu Petricicu!

IF YOU HAVEN'T seen Petricic's retrospective exhibition you have this weekend to see it. I've browsed thoroughly and made some snaps for my collection. His work is one of the rare things I still have the urge to collect. I think it's because his work represents just the right way to enjoy your work, to be diligent and persistent and to make things that look as fresh as they just popped out of the pen easily. The core of his work is kind of an anchor for me, like some kind of omnipresent parent presence from happy child's perspective.

The atmosphere there at the exhibition is easy to describe. Very large illos glowing back lit by daylight when looked from the inside of the Museum make you feel like a kid, little and enchanted. Like you're dreaming or remembering. That exactly is the way people looked at him from the street. Three generations came along here and enjoyed equally charmed and with different associations, smiling like the characters across their faces.

It was lovely to see all of those old illustrations collected at one place, and then Petricic's newer American works on current political streams, but the one beneath the Family Values title is one of the greatest treasures I came across at this retrospective.

And a bunch of kids on this one big piece of paper is like a universal portrait of a group of first graders. That is how we were - little, simple, unique, colorful, happy. Or is it just me...

When the time comes to sum up, if you're just looking back and remembering, I guess that's kind of it. For me this is not that, it's just that I'm so happy that if I take a brief look at my childhood I can be happy to say that it was a really happy one, best described to other people with Petricic's work for kids. We grew up watching this TV show for kids called Poletarac, it made us grow out of the box. We had these strange buzzing in our head and it was to the rhythm of quirky songs by Laboratorija zvuka and Petricic's lovely images moving, disappearing and mingling along with it. And all those letters blended into pictures... I guess that could be the letter love beginning for me... One huge THANK YOU to Dusan Petricic!
