Šok galerija 2002-2012

Šok galerije – površine 1 x 2 m2 najmanje su galerije na Balkanu, predviđene za jednog posetioca. To je mesto intimnog susreta umetnosti i posetioca. Tokom proteklih godina u Šok galeriji Art klinike je izlagalo na desetine mladih umetnika i ona je postala kultno mesto za promovisanje savremenih umetničkih praksi. Sa idejom oživljavanja perifernih delova grada, te saradnje sa kulturnim, sportskim društvima ili verskim zajednicama i udruženjima koje u njima deluju, Šok zadruga je, pored matične galerije u Art klinici, osnovala i izgradila četiri nove galerije. Lanac Šok galerija, tzv. mikrogalerija promovišu novi izlagački koncept i novi oblik saradnje između umetnika i umetničkih asocijacija, te predstavlja jedan eksperimentalni pokušaj, koji prednost daje udruživanju i razmeni iskustava na polju savremen vizuelne umetnosti. U tom svetlu, Šok zadruga prekraja zadate institucionalne i disciplinarne okvire, formuliše nove, „divlje”, nekonvencionalne modele saradnje, centar zamenjuje periferijom, podrum javnim prostorom. Akutna kriza društvenosti, istanjeno socijalno tkivo, devastirana i fragmentarna umetnička scena upozoravaju na urgentnu potrebu rehabilitovanja elementarnih oblika uzajamnosti, oblika samoorganizovanja i međusobnog upotpunjavanja.

sokShock Gallery has been part of Art Klinika since its inception (2002) as a constitutive part of the utopian concept that art cures and changes the world. It is in fact a place where the curing power of art is supposed to be most effective. For that reason, according to medical analogies, it is called The Intensive Care Unit.

What is shocking in SHOCK Gallery?
With an area of only 2m2, it is the smallest gallery in the Balkans designed for only one visitor. It is a place of an intimate encounter between art and audience.
As a specific and unique exhibiting space, SHOCK Gallery is doubly proscriptive. On the one hand, in the choice and manner of presenting an art work, since it insist on the border areas of art, it encourages and requires original and brave concepts, artistic provocation. On the other hand, this gallery signifies a particual type of art work reception and the atmosphere in which that work is presented is constitutively included in that reception. Because of its dimensions, it consciously counts on specific conditions of perception and a condenzated effect of art work. Thus every art work exhibited in Shock Gallery becomes a sort of ambience art – a space art work, art where space has a role inseparable from the work and it is in functional relation to other parts (S. Subašić).
During the past years, dozens of young artist have exhibited in SHOCK Gallery and it has become an emblem of Art Klinika – now Šok Zadruga – and a cult place for promoting contemporary art practices.
