- Critical Essay by Francesca di Gioia

This exhibition presents a series of Marcelja’s prints that came to life as a result of a rigorous process of working with clusters of graphic sequences etched on multiple plates. These sequences were then disassembled and recombined, challenging boundary conditions and narrative logic. The wild lines of Marcelja's etchings are truncated by the boundaries of the geometric plates of ghostly greys and deep blacks only to re-emerge in another sequence, creating a structural dialog between the individual prints. Unstable narratives emerge from this incessant recombination of sequences. The fluidity of the relationships between the works challenges the reflexive expectation of structural continuity, architectural logic, and functional purpose of individual lines and prints.
