In cooperation with School of Design at the Faculty of Architecture and Faculty of Textile Technology, University of Zagreb, students who show potential and talent exhibit in the Bernardo Bernardi Gallery: thus young designers get the opportunity to create their first exhibitions with professional guidance.
This year, three TTF Textile Design graduate students are being presented: Dora Filipaj, Ela Leko and Leo Subanović. The starting point is the award-winning tapestries created in cooperation with the company Regeneracija in Zabok and reGaleria, under the mentorship of Assoc. Prof. Art. Koraljka Kovač Dugandžić. After confirming the quality by being included in the Croatian Design Exhibition 21/22 organized by HDD, in Lauba, the young textile artists continue: in addition to the awarded works, they develop new ones, trying to connect the three works into a whole that works well in the form of display on the wall in the gallery or later in some living space. Everyone within their own area of research and interest began to realize works, and collections of different sensibilities and approaches to the mentioned topic were created. Thinking through the prism of fine art, i.e. art in textiles according to applied art, different conceptual solutions were created and designed with different possibilities of display and application.
