At each edition of the Paris FIAC Art Fair, Applicat-Prazan presents a solo exhibition of works by one of the great artists of the post-war art movement. This year, Applicat-Prazan will be presenting the historical and eternal, monumental and timeless work of Zoran Music (1909-2005). Born in Gorizia (Frioul) in 1909, Zoran Music was deported to Dachau in 1944 because he was a resistant. At the risk of his life, he drew 200 sketches which described what he saw there: scenes of hangings, crematorium ovens, piles of corpses, that is to say, the inconceivable. Many years after his return, in the 1970’s, the artist painted a series of works entitled “We are not the last” in which he depicts the horror of the camps in the silence of the unspeakable. Zoran Music died on the 25th May 2005 in Venice. His paintings are held in most of the great museums the world over.
Composed of 17 paintings, this exhibition brings to light two series of his works which fascinate the gallery. “We are not the last” consists of 10 acrylic paintings on canvas executed between 1970 and 1974, and his major later works of the 1990’s, in which he reveals his inner realm, approaching his own end.
