Katalin Ladik: Screaming Hole

poemim

You are kindly invited to the opening of the show on Thursday,  7th of December, at 8 pm.

This exhibition of Katalin Ladik, the exceptional, yet, overlooked artist, whose significance we only began to appreciate in the past few years, is focused on her poetic experiments, on the intersection of the voice, the body, meaning and record. The Screaming Hole is based on works in which Ladik confronts the paradox of the voice as the intersection of language and the body, belonging to neither, yet, serving as the site of their encounter.

Špela Petrič & Miha Turšič – Liminal Agents

vizualija2

You are kindly invited to the opening of the show on Thursday, 12th of October, at 7 pm.

Given the presented projects, we may try to indicate the variegated and complex issues raised by Špela Petrič in Miha Turšič in their research-oriented art practice with the question that seems to motivate these practical attempts. This is the question of the possibilities and ways of establishing a relation to the non-human – be it vegetal, animal or technological other – that would not be based on privileging the “human”. The projects do not focus much on a critique of anthropocentrism; rather, they arise from its very crisis, which is growing deeper in the age of the Anthropocene due to the global economic processes, environmental changes, research in the fields of cognitive, biological and information sciences and technological development.

Goran Petercol: Hierarchical rows

3

You are kindly invited to the opening of the show on Thursday, 14th September, at 8 pm at Škuc Gallery.

The lack of any evocative or associative referential framework is probably one of the first things we experience when encountering Goran Petercol’s work. We look in vain for entry points for metaphorical readings or appropriated quotes that would open for us a suggestive line, as the current practices of cultural and artistic appropriation are so keen to do. Even though the initial encounter with his works temporarily denies us the usefulness of everyday mechanisms for reading the world and art, this is by no means an encounter that would refer to a metaphysical experience of any kind. On the contrary, we are surrounded by recognisable phenomena, materials or objects that, to a certain point, even behave the way we are accustomed to. However, at that certain point, the expected connections fail completely and we are no longer able to situate the events within systemic frameworks that provide a meaningful haven.

tech x space

You are kindly invited to the opening of the show on Tuesday, 8th of August, at 8 pm.

New technologies are crucial to the acceleration of capitalist operations and, consistent with them, they are no longer oriented primarily towards human actors or instrumental to them. The exhibition is focused on the role of digital technologies and planetary computation for the organisation of global space, which is structured by them in ways, on a scale and at a rate that evade human perceptive and cognitive capacities. The exhibition registers the consequences and the potentials of shifting the driving force of social organisation towards automated and increasingly autonomous processes. Furthermore, it opens the question of how contemporary art, which as a field is still largely bound to its humanist base and (human) spectator, can register the rise of non-human actors, networks and systems, which take on an increasingly leading role in the organisation of complex contemporary capitalist societies.

32nd Graphic Biennial: Birth as Criterion

You are kindly invited to the opening of the show on Friday, 16th of June, from 6-10 pm. On Saturday, 17th of June, we cordially invite you to take part in the guided tour of the exhibition, headed by Miklavž Komelj.

With the invitation from the director of the International Centre of Graphic Arts, Nevenka Šivavec, to join forces and try to confront the renewed reduction of the biennial’s significance to dichotomous debates about outmoded binary positions such as old/new, graphic/non-graphic, media/contemporary, the members of the biennial’s collective have been given a far-reaching task to consider.

Every art scene, the specific space and time-bound environment of art production, is dominated by discourses that offer local art production a conceptual framework and a theoretical context, its points and field of reference, while at the same time they also, to a large extent, determine art production both in terms of the coordinates of its reflexivity and in terms of the ways its ideas materialise.

Rossella Biscotti & Kevin van Braak: T

You are kindly invited to the opening of the show on Friday, February 3rd, at 8 pm.

The enigmatically entitled exhibition project T focuses on Rossella Biscotti’s and Kevin van Braak’s collaborative works and common interests in questions of history, memory and ideology, most notably bringing into focus the intersections of ideology and form. Triggered by diverse historical fragments, Biscotti and Braak develop a complex, yet very material reflection on the remnants of their original ideological inscription, through different acts of re-contextualisation dissecting the inner dynamics of the politics of form.
