Hang Tough Contemporary is delighted to announce ‘Memories of the loud silence’ a collection of oil paintings from our Open Call 2021 winner Mirza Cizmic.

Mirza Cizmic b.1985 in Bosnia and Herzegovina resides in Helsinki. His artistic practice is related to past experiences. The way he paints is a way of interpreting the world, not through the eyes of a painter, but through his personal experiences. The language that he uses is based on his instincts which are divided into two parts. One is objective and formal while the other is subjective which belongs to Cizmic as an individual. It is a process that takes Cizmic from confusion to understanding.

Cizmic predominantly uses oil paint on primed paper. The surface of primed paper is very smooth offering more control over his brush strokes. Memories of the loud silence’ will feature a collection of 20 new paintings.

As an artist, I must be aware of the illusive borders between art and life, art and society, as well as art and activism. Formalisation of my position in contemporary society is connected with constant questioning of myself and my role as an artist. My aim is to break the conventional taboos and depoliticise the situation and bring attention to the humanity of people”.

‘Memories of the loud silence’ x Mirza Cizmic will be hosted in Hang Tough Contemporary, Exchequer St and guests will be invited to book to attend the launch event via Eventbrite.

Drinks are kindly provided by Teelings Whiskey.
