Description

Born in Ljubljana, Slovenia, Gregor Kregar’s work explores the intersection of mysticism and science. Kregar’s practice is ambiguous and uncanny, yet is a reflection of the social, economic and political environment which the artist inhabits. Currently residing in Auckland, Kregar studied at the Academy of Fine Arts at the University of Ljubljana until 1996, before commencing further study at the Elam School of Fine Arts at the University of Auckland. He has held artist residency’s in New Zealand, New York and China, as well as having works publically commissioned in Slovenia, Abu Dhabi and in New Zealand.  

Kregar’s sculptures disrupt and displace the meaning of recognisable objects, giving them a new space for interpretation. Reflective Lullaby connects the sublime with the ridiculous through the figure of a garden gnome with a highly reflective surface. Standing as a symbol of knowledge, alchemy and protection in folklore, this common garden ornament is transformed by Kregar into a humorous philosopher of everyday life by its scale as a heroic monumental sculpture.
