Zuzana Pustaiová: One Day Every Day
MMSU, Krešimirova 26c, Rijeka, Croatia
We kindly invite you to the opening of the exhibition Zuzana Pustaiová: One Day
Every Day on 22/09/2022 at 7 pm at the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art.
Following her participation at the Rovinj Photodays 2021, where she won the
Grand Prix for the photographic series One Day Every Day (2021), Zuzana
Pustaiová will present the awarded project in the solo exhibition.
The staged photographs from the One Day Every Day series show how the ordinary
man responds to the imperatives of the present lifestyle, indirectly announcing
its successes and failures. Looking at the current social landscape, Zuzana
Pustaiová points to the unrealistic desires that modern life imposes on people,
from the ideology of healthy life, the cult of the body and social
adaptability, to the general efficiency and social responsibility. Yet, she
decides not to deal with these topics too seriously, as her allies are humor
and playfulness and she uses them to create a world where rules are tolerable,
or at least subject to change. Characters from One Day Every Day series reverse
the idealized standards in favor of a genuine, ordinary everyday life in which
we find the multitude of the extraordinary comic details such as multiplied
artificial nails, a bunch of cigarettes in the mouth, piles of tampons and
toilet paper rolls, post-its, flying pizza cuts, paper disguises. The
multiplication process refers to the excessiveness of the tasks foisted on us
by everyday life, so all the scenes from the photos often cross the boundaries
of the comfort zone and discreetly release a glint of discomfort.
