Miljenko Horvat, travelling on the rugged and magnificent scenery of the west coast of Ireland, shoots a photo called "Gorgonic Ground". The adjective "gorgonic" here signifies belonging to a group of contemporaries who, under the name of this mythological being, gathered and were active in Zagreb at the beginning of the sixties. And as in Gorgona's mythology, at the same time, it is beautiful and frightening, and this photo at the same time exacerbates the sense of amazement and the existence of the essence. It strongly embodies what Gorgona members called the dark ingredients of Gorgon's thoughts: absurdity and emptiness.
