OPENING OF THE EXHIBITION ARCHETYP PRA-BARI: EMÍLIA RIGOVÁ/SK with musical accompaniment by Maroš Banga

The exhibition “The Pre-Bari Archetype” (Archetyp Pra-Bari) presents the life story of Bári Raklóri, who is a sort of alter ego of the visual artist Emílie Rigová. The exhibit is like a story in which the artist includes various elements from her life and the environment in which she lives and then presents them to the public even as in some places she is intentionally secretive. She accumulates these elements, alternating erasing and overlapping them until she ultimately returns to her primal origin, her primal state, to PRE-BARI.  

By creating her "BÁRI RAKLORI" brand, Emília Rigová clearly declared what her approach to the question of the coexistence of the majority society and the Romani minority would be. She based this nickname on the Romani word used to address her during her childhood -  Bari /Big – and then added raklóri / daughter of non-Romani parents. Raklóri was the term used by her forebears to express their gladness when they saw their children nicely dressed and groomed. Through this she demonstrates the synergetic thinking of her forebears, who did not consider non-Romani people the enemy, but lived together with them and understood them. For that reason, it is not possible to discuss the works presented here as just “Romani art”. 

Emília Rigová (born 1980) is an academic sculptor who teaches at the  Matěj Belo University in Banská Bystrica, Slovakia. She is dedicated to performance and to sculpture as a medium that she further processes through graphic design and video.  The main themes of her works are cultural or social stereotypes, dreams, the opportunity to choose an alter eog, Romani identity, and shadows. She has exhibited in Austria (Linz), the Czech Republic, Germany (Dresden), Montenegro, Poland (Cracow) and Slovakia as well as other Central European cities. She currently lives and works between Banská Bystrica, Trnava and Zvolen.

Milan Kroka is one of the most sought-after Romani musicians today. He is a brilliant guitar player, keyboard player and singer whose musical style mingles traditional Romani folk music with Latin, pop, rumba and world music. He established his band in 2012 with five members:  Milan Kroka, Milan Kurej, Zdeněk Kurej, David Grundza and Roman Kryštof. He will perform the popular song Sam lače Roma, which he wrote together with Jan Dužda, as well as the international Romani anthem, Gelem Gelem, which he has arranged as a jazz/soul ballad.

Gipsy Casual perfoms traditional Romani music enriched with electrifying beats and electronic tones. Their modern versions of traditional Romani songs and their energy will literally engulf you. “We will never give up our music and our style because it is what represents us. We have succeeded in introducing something new into this musical style and thanks to the universality of our members, we were able to begin collaborating with many world artists,” manager Roxana Delcea explains the group’s success. In 2011 the band performed at the Romanian Music Awards, thanks to which the broad public became aware of them. Ever since they have been performing at leading festivals worldwide and in Turkey their songs “Bate Toba Mare” and “Kelushka” have been in the top rankings of the hit parade for several seasons now!
