After the premiere in Zagreb Vedran’s project Spiritual Market is arriving to Vienna on 25 February 2017 in Cars & Arts gallery (Apfelgasse 5, 1040 Wien). The jazz concert and movie projection will start at 7 pm.
Spiritual Market combines the original jazz album of Vedran Ružić – inspired by the journeys of Marco Polo with the homonymous, music accompanying art film, made by John Kardum and Ira Tomić.
The album is a combination of overtones from Istria and the Far East, following Marko Polo’s journey from Venice to China. With Ružić on the double bass, the quartet is completed with his colleagues from the conservatorium in Klagenfurt – Adriano Bernobić on the drums, Pavle Miljenović on the guitar and Mario Biočić joining them with the saxophone on three pieces on the album.
The film is an abstract display of Marco Polo’s journeys in which the present and the past interfere between eachother, as do the imaginative and real characters in time-distorted roles. The creational path of this experimental film is Jazz-like; the accent is set on the motives that have very often expanded out of improvisation and on the-fly-moments and in the end, subsequently merged into a rounded story.
After the concert and the film, there will be an exhibition of paintings from Ružić and photographys by Ira & John, accompanied by a glass of wine or Rakija 🙂
