iPreciation is proud to present new works by Delia and Milenko Prvacki in a duo exhibition titled – Topography of Hybrid Imagery.
Delia draws parallels between the interbreeding nature of the word “hybridity” with the sense of assemblage in her practice. Her latest ceramic sculptures emanate the alluring charm of futurism and its applications. Milenko focuses on the dynamic interactions of social and cultural fragments, bringing forth a whimsical space, though flattened in the collision and synthesis of different forces.
While Delia works with ceramics and Milenko works with painting, this exhibition brings together their latest works in an analytical method, emphasizing their basic materiality structure and application of their unique visual vocabulary.
Delia Prvacki (b. 1950, Baia Mare, Romania) graduated from the Bucharest Institute of Fine Arts in 1975 with a Master’s Degree in Applied Arts. Subsequently, she moved to former Yugoslavia to practice art, where she was awarded the Special Award and the Critic’s Award at the Yugoslav Triennial of Ceramics 1981, and the Annual Art Award from the Serbian Association of Applied Artists in 1982.
In 1991, Delia relocated to Singapore with Milenko Prvacki and her family. She has received numerous commissions for public projects, which have been a focal point in many urban areas and institutions such as Shangri La Hotel, Tan Tock Seng Hospital, Singapore Power Building, NUS (Alice Lee Plaza), Marina South Pier MRT Station.
