Transfigurations – 30 Years of the Žiča Spiritual Assembly
August 16 at 20:00 - September 20 at 13:00
The great jubilee of the Žiča Spiritual Assembly was the reason for organizing the exhibition “Transfigurations – 30 Years of the Žiča Spiritual Assembly”, whose authors are MA Ana Gvozdenovic, editor for essays and criticism of the National Library “Stefan Prvovenčani” Kraljevo and Mirjana Savic, museum advisor of the National Museum Kraljevo. The exhibition will be opened by Dr. Dragan Hamović. The event was launched with the aim of nurturing, studying and affirming the authentic values of national culture back in 1992, when in Kraljevo there was a need to overcome the cruelty of time and transform society with the messianic power of spirituality. Continuing and developing, the event retained the supporting elements of the 1992 program with a fine artistic and layered scientific superstructure. The power of words and verses has gained worthy companions in the contents from the field of humanities and various branches of art, which from the very beginning, with their themes and significance, have greatly outgrown the local framework. The authors of the exhibition themselves say about their goals:
The intention of the author of the exhibition was to take you through three decades of the existence of the Žiča Spiritual Assembly, remind you of its program contents and once again refer to the poetry of the winner of the “Žiče Chrysobull”. Transmitting some of their verses and excerpts from autopoetic texts and Transfiguration sermons, we wanted to remind you of the beauty of the poetic word and the often-forgotten power of language. Because, as Nebojša Bradić, then Minister of Culture in the Government of the Republic of Serbia, emphasized at the opening of the Manifestation in 2009, “culture is a constant transformation of ourselves and the community we make” and “only those people who hear their poetry are recognizable in geography and written in history”.
