THE LOVE STORY
For the Love Story exhibition, Ron Preinfalk artistically redesigned the handwoven gobelin tapestries made by Slovenian artist Petra Varl (1965) that feature two city dwellers, Zvezda and Odeon. The characters were first presented by the artist in cooperation with Maja Gspan in the Zvezda Park, Ljubljana in 1995 in the city calendar, where their mood was adapted to the season and month in question. Having been stitched in the Gobelin technique by the artist’s mother, Nuša Varl, Zvezda and Odeon made their last appearance at an international contemporary art exhibition in Salestat, France in 1996. A few years ago the characters again became the focus of the artist’s attention, but she made the decision to forward her Gobelin tapestries. She gifted them to Ron who has since been writing a new chapter in the story of Zvezda and Odeon.
