Petra
Šabić

At the Art Zagreb festival Petra Šabić will present her work from the cosmographic astronomical art series. It is where everything becomes significant, where methodical spontaneity and experimental intuition become the main tools of the creative process. It is also an undermining of chaos as well as its framing, bringing to shape or “cosmographication” (from cosmos, as ‘arranged’, ‘adorned’ state). 

Cosmographic painting becomes a certain kind of game because it tries to bring order into confusion and makes the transition from natural to cultural, from spontaneous to intentional, but the game permits to underestimate the deepest spontaneity and the most personal response to external coercion (cf. Chavalier, Gheerbrant 1987.)
