Exhibition of Laco Teren at the Slovak National Gallery
The exhibition of Laco Teren (born in 1960 in Bratislava) at the Slovak National Gallery will present the key points of his artistic program and comprehensively capture his unique artistic and genuinely "versatile" personality. Although predominantly a painter, from time to time he also dabbles in sculpture. Since the early 1990s he has also designed and created spatial objects which are based on the iconographic and style repertoire of his painting art. Without a doubt, the main sphere of his interest is painting, but his work features an overlap of drawing, painting and sculpture. Post-Modernist irrationality, humor, absurd metaphor, allegory and particularly plays with symbols have found their place in Teren's work - he is a master of creating hybrid signs and pop-culture rebuses of various designations.
