Mesto Ptuj vsako leto znova postane za mesec in nekaj dni globalno središče in prostor iskanja, odkrivanja in sprejemanja različnih pristopov in tendenc v sodobni umetnosti. Danes je mogoče sprejemati in prisegati na različne likovne tokove, stile ter usmeritve in prav to ponuja Art Stays. Inovativne in drzne projekte sodobne vizualne umetnosti, ki jih ustvarijo uveljavljeni avtorji, ki prehajajo med slikarstvom, videom, fotografijo, instalacijo, peformansom in ki v mestu Ptuj najdejo izziv za pripravo in realizacijo še ne predstavljenih projektov. Vezi in ideje za prihodnost, ki se vsako leto spletejo in ustvarijo na festivalu, pa so neprecenljiv naboj – tako za umetnike, kakor tudi za mesto, ki se odpira kot Evropska prestolnica kulture. V čast nam je, da lahko v najstarejšem mestu delamo najsodobnejše projekte, ki prihajajo k nam iz vsega sveta. For a a little more than a month each year the city of Ptuj becomes a global centre and place of searching, discovering and accepting various approaches and tendencies in contemporary art. In this day and age it is possible to accept and prefer different arts streams, styles and orientations, and Art Stays enables one to do just that. Innovative and daring contemporary visual art projects by accomplished artists, drifting from painting, video, photography, installation, performance, which all find it a challenge to prepare and present new projects in Ptuj. New connections and ideas for the future are forged and created every year, and they are a priceless source of energy for the artists, as well as for the city, which is opening up as the future European capital of culture. We are honoured that we are able to create the most contemporary projects from all around the world in Slovenia's oldest town.

Osma izvedba Mednarodnega festivala sodobne umetnosti ART STAYS 2010 je bila posvečena odnosom in razlikam med umetnostjo, zvokom, prostorom, znanostjo in tehnologijo v obliki dialoga z različnimi pristopi k vsem oblikam in smerem vizualne in zvočne umetnosti. Cilj projekta je zasliševanje singularnosti idej umetnikov in kustosov ter njihovih variacij, ter rezultat razstaviti v različnih prostorih, oblikah in formatih na Ptuju. Skozi nov pogled ART STAYS prakticira ustvarjanje, analizo in dialog med umetniškimi deli, predavanja in delavnice, katerih namen in ideja je spodbujati razumevanje povezav med tradicionalnimi vizualnimi smermi kot so slikarstvo, arhitektura in skulptura ter novimi oblikami in raziskavami kot na primer video, performans in instalacije. The 8th edition of ART STAYS 2010, dedicated to the relations and differences between art, sound, territory, sciences and technology, consist in a dialogue versus different approaches to all forms of the visual and sound arts. The goal is to interrogate the singularity of the artists and curators ideas and their differences and exhibit them in some particularly places, forms and formats in Ptuj. Through a new view ART STAYS practices a creation, analysis and dialogues of artworks, lectures and workshops; the idea is to promote a platform for understanding the connections between traditional visual arts as painting, architecture or sculptures with new forms and research as video art, performances, installation etc.

Minilo je že 10 let odkar posvečam svoj čas sodobni likovni umetnosti na Ptuju. Leta 2000 smo pričeli z organizacijo razstav vrhunskih slovenskih umetnikov in prevetrili zaspano likovno sceno našega mesta. Tri leta kasneje smo pričeli z mednarodno likovno kolonijo mladih evropskih umetnikov, ki je danes prerastla v enega največjih festivalov sodobne likovne umetnosti v Sloveniji ter okolici in ki privablja na Ptuj umetnike in kustose ter širše občinstvo iz vseh koncev sveta. Razstava letošnjega festivala, ki poteka v petnajstih razstaviščih na Ptuju in v okolici je rezultat trdega večletnega dela in je dokaz, da se lahko veliki kulturni projekti dogajajo tudi zunaj prestolnic. It has been 10 years since I have started dedicating my time to contemporary visual art in Ptuj. In 2000 we have started organising exhibitions of important Slovenian artists and brought a fresh wind into a sleeping visual art scene of our city. Three year after we began organising a workshop for young European visual artists that today became one of the biggest and most important festivals of contemporary visual arts in Slovenia and abroad. Every year it brings to Ptuj artists, curators and much audience from all over the world. The exhibition of this year festival, that is open in fifteen diffrent exhibition spaces in Ptuj and nearby is a result of years work and it proves that big cultural projects can happen also outside capital cities.

ZAPLETEN SVET ART STAYS

A COMPLEX WORLD OF ART STAYS

Ko obiskovalec obišče Ptuj, da bi si ogledal razstave Art Stays, vstopi v zapleten svet, sestavljen iz območij, sekcij, načrtov, umetnikov in umetniških del. Vsaka stvar ima svoj prostor, ki ji je bil namenjen. Trdo delo, ideje, vpogledi, izzivi, nepričakovane in neverjetne trditve, ljudje in umetniki, ki se želijo srečevati in odkrivati, nezgode, pomanjkanje časa, prostori, ki jih je potrebno na novo odkriti in čas, ki ga je potrebno izbrskati … vse to je del preteklosti. Pester, nepopoln in zmeden svet Art Stays je tisto, kar želi opisati ta katalog; vse, kar se je dogajalo v teh dneh, polnih čustev in strasti, za tiste, ki niso bili z nami, a hočejo razumeti. Meseci pridnega dela, tedni ali le deset dni za izdelavo nekaterih izmed umetniških del, instalacij, videov, slik, fotografij, dogodkov, ki so bili pripravljeni posebej za Art Stays. S tem katalogom se Art Stays in njegovi dnevi odpirajo in javnosti razkrivajo intenzivne trenutke skozi besedo in dokumentarno fotografijo, skozi umetnike in prijatelje. Predstavljeni so najbolj razburljivi in najpomembnejši trenutki, ki so bili del nastajanja Art Stays 2010. Na ta način odkrivamo in sledimo kaotičnim delovnim dnem, ko so na Ptuj prispeli umetniki in kustosi iz Avstralije, ZDA, Japonske, Singapurja in 12 evropskih držav, da bi vdihnili življenje, obliko in prostor vodilnemu dogodku s področja sodobne umetnosti v Sloveniji. Art Stays, poletna akademija in Art Ptuj so v 10 dneh organizirali preko 35 dogodkov s področja sodobne umetnosti, ki vključujejo 15 različnih projektov, 5 nacionalnih paviljonov, 5 mednarodnih posebnih projektov, 5 projektov Art Stays in kopico dogodkov, predavanj, delavnic in srečanj v dneh, ko so na Ptuju gostovali kustosi, umetniki in profesorji z različnih področij umetnosti. Z njimi so potekale debate o vidnih temah sodobne umetnosti. Rezultat našega dela – 50 umetnikov na skupinskih razstavah na 15 javnih in zasebnih prostorih v mestu, ki vključujejo preko 135 različnih umetnin z različnimi pogledi, a skupno strastjo in željo, da bi razširili besedo o tem, kako je Art Stays ponovno potovanje, razkrito pred očmi gledalca na način, ko ni več pomembno, kdo je umetnik in kdo organizator, kdo urednik, profesor, prijatelj, kritik, novinar ali fotograf, temveč z razkritjem bistva celotnega projekta.

When the viewer comes to Ptuj to visit the Art Stays exhibitions, he enters a complex world made up of areas, sections, plans, artists and works. Everything has its place just as it is intended. Hard work, ideas, insights, challenges, unexpected, improbable claims, people and artists who meet and discover, mishaps, bad timing, spaces you need to reinvent and time to find ... all this is part of the the past. The busy, imperfect and confused world of Art Stays – this is what this catalogue wants to describe; everything that happened, for those who did not live among us day by day with emotions and passions, but want to understand. Months of work, weeks or only ten days to complete many of the artworks, installations, videos, paintings, photos, events – all specially created for Art Stays. With this catalogue Art Stays opens itself and its individual days, revealing intense moments to the public through its story and documentary photographers, artists and friends. It presents the most exciting and meaningful moments that were a part of the creation of Art Stays 2010. In this way we discover and follow the hectic days of work, when artists and curators came to Ptuj from Australia, USA, Japan, Singapore and 12 European countries to give life, form and space to the leading contemporary art event in Slovenia. Art Stays, Summer Academy and Art Ptuj have promoted and organized over 35 contemporary art events in 10 days for the 2010 edition, including 15 different projects, 5 national pavilions, 5 international special projects, 5 Art Stays projects and a series of events, lectures, workshops and meetings in the days of residence to present curators, artists and teachers of various arts and sections, to discuss with them about the great themes of contemporary art. The result of our work; 50 artists and the group exhibitions presented in 15 public and private spaces of the city that include well over 135 different artworks that have been collected here – with different looks and ways but sharing the same passion and desire to spread the word about how Art Stays is once again a journey, exposed in front of the eyes of the spectators, not focusing on who is the author and organizer, the artists, editors, teachers, friends, critics, journalists, photographers, but by exposing the essence of the project itself.

MEDNARODNA PLATFORMA

INTERNATIONAL PLATFORM

V današnjem času Art Stays pomeni zanimivo platformo za kuratorska raziskovanja: med toliko mednarodnimi institucijami, ki se borijo za pozornost javnosti, Art Stays izstopa po tem, da ga lahko umetnik uporabi za poskusno okolje pri bolj eksperimentalnih projektih in na novo pojavljajočih se umetniških smereh. Meni samemu je Art Stays ponudil možnost, da poskusim nove kombinacije in »konstelacije instalacij«. V kontekstu festivala sem vedno delal v čezdisciplinskem formatu, umetniki, ki sem jih izbral, so skupaj ustvarili povsem novo izkušnjo: ravno ta faktor, možnost razvijanja lastnega programa z raziskovanjem na kraju samem in uživanjem v energiji, ki se rodi ob razvoju v živo, je pri Art Stays nekaj posebnega in ustvarja svežo, prijetno ustvarjalno platformo.

The timing of Art Stays makes it an interesting platform for curatorial exploration: with so many international art institutions searching for public attention, Art Stays remains viable in that one can use it as a sounding board for more experimental projects and as a test bed for emerging arts. Art Stays has given me the possibility to try out new combinations and “installational constellations” – in the context of the festival I have always worked in a cross-disciplinary format; the artists I chose were then installed to create a very new experience: this factor about developing your program through on-site research and enjoying the energy that comes out of a live development is unique to Art Stays and a delightfully fresh platform.

ARTISTIC FIRST AID IN REVIVING THE OLD TOWN CORE / INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF CONTEMPORARY ART

Zgodovina festivala Art Ptuj je mlada in kratka, a zdi se, kot da je festival že od nekdaj med nami. Z množico kulturnih dogodkov prinaša v vse preveč zaspano in meščanskega življenja osiromašeno zgodovinsko središče ustvarjalni nemir, novo energijo in znanje. Novo upanje! Zelo jasno nam kaže pot, kako bi se mesto moralo razvijati, da bi bilo mednarodno konkurenčno, zanimivo in prepoznavno ter da bi se v njem tako domačini kot gostje dobro počutili. Razmah nakupovalnih središč ustvarja zapeljivo iluzijo razvitega okolja, kjer prihaja do neharmoničnega povezovanja starih in novih tradicij. Staro mestno jedro razpada pri živem telesu, je vse bolj nemočno in otopelo, zato potrebuje nujne, hitre in učinkovite ukrepe pri svoji rasti. Potrebuje znanje, energijo in kapital, predvsem od zunaj. Potrebuje novo razvojno paradigmo, ki izhaja iz mednarodno primerljivih potencialov, ki jih najdemo tudi v izjemno bogati dediščini in kulturi najstarejšega mesta v Sloveniji. Če koncept dediščine povežemo s sodobno umetniško ustvarjalnostjo, se pred nami razgrne razvojni model Art & Heritage, ki temelji na spoštovanju lokalnih tradicij ter globalni umetniški ustvarjalnosti in inovativnosti. Navsezadnje – razvojni projekt Evropska prestolnica kulture je zgodba o Art & Heritage! Brez dediščine in kulture, brez tradicij in sodobne umetniške ustvarjalnosti Ptuj nikoli ne more postati urbano mesto, ki ponuja meščanski in urbani način življenja. Zato smo lahko še toliko bolj vznemirjeni, ko nam kulturno umetniško društvo Art Stays vsaj enkrat letno, a zato toliko bolj silovito, kaže mednarodno kulturno ogledalo v obliki že osmega festivala sodobne umetnosti. Festival ni le edinstvena mednarodna parada najsodobnejših in najaktualnejših umetniških praks, ki se navdihujejo v tisočerih zgodovinskih podrobnostih mestnega korpusa, ampak je hkrati svojevrstna umetniška refleksija na razumevanje in čutenje mesta. Refleksija, ki vzpostavlja kreativni dialog med starim in novim – med starim, ki osmišlja novo, in novim, ki se navdihuje s starim. V letošnjem letu kaže posebej izpostaviti dve novi poglavji v konceptu festivala sodobne umetnosti. Prvo je povezano s pogumnim in ambicioznim zagonom Mednarodne poletne akademije sodobnih umetnosti, ki ob predavanjih in delavnicah vrhunskih strokovnjakov izpostavlja pomen znanja pri razvoju različnih umetniških praks. S takšnimi akademijami bi se „Art & Heritage Ptuj“ lahko razvil ne le v romantično zgodovinsko mesto, ki diha s sodobno umetnostjo, ampak tudi v mednarodno pomembno središče informacij in znanj. Kot drugo pomembno novost festivala sodobne umetnosti lahko izpostavimo projekt Portret ob kavi v Park hotelu Ptuj, kjer je uveljavljen akademski slikar Igor Molin portretiral v različnih slikarskih tehnikah po ugodnih festivalskih cenah, kot pravijo organizatorji. Prav ta moment priča o želji snovalcev festivala, da sodobno umetnost približajo ljudem, tudi tistim, ki ne hodijo v galerije, morda celo tistim, ki jih sodobna umetnost v bistvu sploh ne zanima. Prav v takšnih, morda za koga trivialnih gestah, ko se umetnost prodaja, ko je dostopna širšemu krogu uporabnikov, ko vzpostavlja najširši, a ne banalni dialog, tiči kritična ustvarjalna refleksija in družbena odgovornost umetnosti 21. stoletja. In če nam je ob tem še lepo, je lahko življenje – tudi na Ptuju – skoraj popolno!

Even though the history of the Art Ptuj festival is young and short, it seems as if the festival has been with us for ages. With a plethora of cultural events it brings creative restlessness, new energy and knowledge into the all too sleepy and impoverished city life of the historical town core. A new hope! It clearly shows a direction in which the city should direct its development in order to become internationally competitive, interesting and recognizable as well as a place where locals and visitors feel good. The massive growth of shopping centres creates a seductive illusion of an urban environment, where old and new traditions connect in a non-harmonious manner. The old town core's living body is decomposing, it is becoming helpless and numb and in desperate need of urgent, fast and effective measures to recharge its redevelopment. It needs knowledge, energy and capital, especially from external sources. It needs a new development paradigm based on internationally comparable potentials, which can also be found in the rich heritage and culture of Slovenia's oldest town. If we connect the concept of heritage with contemporary art and creativity, we are facing the Art & Heritage development model, which is based on the consideration of local traditions and global artistic practice and innovation. After all, the development project European Capital of Culture is a story about Art & Heritage! Without heritage and culture, without tradition and contemporary creativity Ptuj can never become an urban centre with an urban lifestyle. This is why we should be all the more excited when, once a year, Cultural and Arts Society Art Stays hands us an international cultural mirror in the shape of the festival of contemporary visual art. The festival is not only an international parade of the most contemporary and up-to-date artistic practices inspired by the numerous historical details of our city, but also a unique artistic reflection of the understanding and feeling of the town. A reflection, which establishes a creative dialogue between the old and the new – the old, which gives meaning to the new, and the new, which is inspired by the old. Two new chapters in the concept of the festival of contemporary art deserve special mention this year. The first one is the brave and ambitious start of the International Summer Academy of Contemporary Art, which underlines the meaning of knowledge in developing various artistic practices through its lectures and workshops. This kind of academies could enable “Art & Heritage Ptuj” to develop not only into a romantic historical town living and breathing with contemporary art, but also into an internationally acclaimed hub of information and knowledge. The second important new element of the festival is the project Portrait Over Coffee in Park Hotel Ptuj. Accomplished painter Igor Molin was brought in to paint portraits in various techniques at, as the organizers say, affordable festival prices. This fact is a testament of the festival's creators' wish to bring contemporary art closer to people – those who do not visit galleries and perhaps even those who are not really interested in contemporary art. These perhaps seemingly trivial gestures of art being for sale and available to a wider audience create a wide but certainly not trivial dialogue, which enables a critical creative reflection and social responsibility of art of the 21st century. And if we have a good time in the process, life can be – even in Ptuj – almost perfect!

Italijanski projekt pod vodstvom kustosa Domenica Pape je sestavljen iz slikarske instalacije iz 60 majhnih slik slikarja Antonella Tagliafierra, ki predstavlja nov koncept abstrakcije glede na geografsko sliko podobe. Mehkoba, izmuzljivost, svetloba in percepcija so elementi projekta Ptujing, “site-specific” umetnine oziroma umetnine, prilagojene prizorišču, avtorice Caterine Margherite. Delo, ki ga je navdihnila lokacija oziroma termalna voda, ki je prisotna v mestu, je sestavljeno iz štirih srednje velikih platen, poslikanih s tehniko enkavstike, ter pare. The Italian project curated by Domenico Papa consists of a painting installation of 60 small paintings by Antonello Tagliafierro, which presents a new concept of abstraction according to a geographical gestalt of the image. Softness , elusiveness, light, perception are the elements of Ptujing, a site-specific artwork created by Caterina Margherita, consisting of four medium-sized encaustic canvases and steam, inspired by the location and the thermal waters which are present in the city.

Kustos Laszlo Laszlo Revesz je izbral dva umetnika, ki zastopata sodobno madžarsko umetnost. Eike, znan po svoji video umetnosti, ki se osredotoča na dvojnost prostora, na Ptuju predstavlja tri različna dela (“House of Cards“, „Utopia-The Collection“ in „Utopia“ video) med videom, instalacijo in svetlobno škatlo, v katerih se igra s situacijo med realnim in virtualnim. Mlajši umetnik György Szaszák predstavlja dvojni video „Parallel“, ki skuša razumeti in raziskati interaktivnost gledalca. Curator Laszlo Laszlo Revesz has chosen two artists to represent contemporary Hungarian art. Eike, who is known for his videos focusing on the duality of space, is presenting here in Ptuj three different artworks (“House of Cards“, „Utopia-The Collection“ and „Utopia“ video) moving between videos, installation and light box, where he is playing with the situation between the real and the virtual. The younger artist György Szaszák's double video „Parallel“ works with a central issue of understanding and researching the interactivity of the spectator.

Dve zanimivi deli znanih figurativnih slikarjev, Španca Jorgeja Villalbe in Nemca Andreasa Lessnerja, ustvarjata dialog v okviru posebne predstavitve projekta Ptuj Unfold avtorice Marion Eichmann, ki vsebuje tri risbe na papirju, narejene s svinčniki, drugimi pisali, tehniko kolaža itd. Kmalu bo zaključeno in predstavljeno tudi veliko delo, posvečeno strukturi mesta, njegovi zgodovini in prebivalcem. Two interesting pieces by well-known figurative painters, Spaniard Jorge Villalba and German Andreas Lessner, conduct a dialogue with a particular project presentation called Ptuj Unfold by Marion Eichmann. There are three drawings on paper made with pencil, pens, collages etc. A large work dedicated and related to the structure of city, its history and its habitants will soon be completed in Ptuj.

Mladi slovaški slikarki Lucio Dovičákovo (1981) in Zuzano Flimelovo (1976) sta za predstavnici sodobne slovaške umetniške scene izbrala kustosa Gabriela Kisova in Omar Mirza. Obe umetnici imata specifičen vizualni jezik, saj uporabljata svoj medij, akril in olje na platnu, ter svoj vizualni jezik, biografije in ženske figure, kot teme za razmišljanja o situacijah iz vsakdanjega življenja. Chosen by Gabriela Kisova and Omar Mirza to present the contemporary Slovakian art scene, these two young Slovakian painters, Lucia Dovičáková (1981) and Zuzana Flimelová (1976), both with a specific visual language, use their media, acrylic and oil on canvas, and their visual languages, biographies and female figures, as topics to reflect on situations in everyday life.

Beti Bricelj in Tanja Špenko sta slovenski vsestranski umetnici, predstavnici dveh generacij, ki se soočata v edinstvenem projektu v Galeriji Magistrat pod vodstvom kustosa Vladimirja Forbicija. Medtem ko se dela Bricljeve osredotočajo na abstrakten slog, barvne like in matematična pravila, so umetniška dela, slike, grafike in kipi Tanje Špenko že prevzeli globlji pomen skozi simbole, znake prisotnosti človeka, fragmente in sledi dolge transformacije, ki še vedno poteka. Beti Bricelj and Tanja Špenko are two female Slovenian polyedric artists that represent two generations in confrontation for a unique project in Gallery Magistrat, curated by Vladimir Forbici. While abstract style, coloured forms and mathematical rules are the basic elements of Bricelj's research and painting, Špenko's artworks, paintings, prints and sculptures have already assumed a deeper meaning through representations consisting of symbols, signs of man's presence, fragments, traces of a long transformation that is still in process.

INVOLVING THE CITY

Prepričana sva, da občinstvo z zanimanjem spoznava nove usmeritve v sodobni umetnost. Zaradi tega je tudi pomembno, da Ptuj vključimo v festivalske dogodke. S tem se namreč mesto pozicionira kot sodobno umetniško mesto, ki sprejema avantgardne projekte. Vloga sodobnega umetnika je, da se loti vseh izzivov in jezik umetnosti pomika do ekstremov.

We are sure that the public is excited to get to know the new directions in today's contemporary art. Therefore, it is important for us to involve in Ptuj in the festival's events. In doing so, Ptuj positions itself as a contemporary art city, which also accepts avant-garde projects. The role of a contemporary artist is to undertake all challenges and push the language of art to the extreme.

Projekt, ki ga je občinstvo opisalo kot glavni dogodek festivala Art Stays 2010, je novi projekt avstralskega biologa Garyja Cassa in singapurskega umetnika S Chandrasekarana, Bioalloy and the Body. Peristaltic Bodies (Biozlitina in telo. Peristaltična telesa). Projekt, ki ga je izbrala Marika Vicari, raziskuje izginjajoči prostor med človekom in strojem. Stroj omogoča živim bakterijam, da proizvedejo lastno kožo, material, ki med performansom nastane v odnosu do človeškega telesa. Vprašanje, kdaj bodo stroji postali podobni človeku, je že preživeto in dolgočasno; bolj zanimivo vprašanje je, kdaj bodo ljudje postali podobni strojem. Described by the public as the main event of Art Stays 2010, the new project of Australian biologist Gary Cass and Singaporean artist S Chandrasekaran, Bioalloy and the Body. Peristaltic Bodies, curated by Marika Vicari, probes the diminishing space between humans and machines. The machine allows living bacteria to produce its own skin, a material was created in relation to the human body during the process of the performance. The question of when will machines become human-like is already passé and boring; the more interesting question is, when will humans become machine-like?

Projekt Portret sledi italijanskega umetnika Marca Gradija je na uradni otvoritvi festivala Art Ptuj na dvorišču ptujskega gradu občinstvo vključil v nastajanje umetniškega dela skozi na videz vsakdanje dejanje hoje po papirju, ki je bil predhodno obdelan z barvo. Na površini papirja so ljudje sodelovali v ritualu, ki je rodil novo umetniško delo. Nastali sta dve veliki črnobeli deli, ki sta bili razstavljeni kot portreta; rezultat novega pogleda na identiteto človeških sledi v prostoru. Presented during the official opening of the Art Ptuj Festival in the Courtyard of Ptuj's Castle, the project Portrait of Traces by Italian artist Marco Gradi involved the public in the production of an artwork through a seemingly quotidian act of walking on paper coloured and prepared with varnishes. On its surface, the people were participating in a ritual that resulted in the creation of an artwork. After the production of two large black and white pieces, those were exhibited

CESARE PIETROIUSTI kustos / curator: Marika Vicari

Cesare Pietroiusti je izdelal 300 unikatnih risb s pomočjo dveh lokalnih produktov: bučnega olja in pelinkovca. Risbe je avtor podpisal in brezplačno razdelil na javnem performansu 25. julija pred Mestnim gledališčem Ptuj. Na dnu vsake risbe je zapisano, da jo moramo smatrati za umetniško delo le do določenega datuma. Ali gre za kritični komentar današnjega umetniškega trga ali morda za poskus ustvariti paradoks, v katerem se tradicionalni koncepti “avtorstva” s svojimi tipičnimi manifestacijami, kot sta podpis in datiranje umetniškega dela, uporabijo na nekoliko drugačen način? Cesare Pietroiusti has made 300 unique drawings using two local products: pumpkin oil and pelinkovec. The drawings were individually signed by the artist and distributed for free during a public art performance on 25th July in front of Ptuj's Theatre. A caption at the bottom of each piece states that it only has to be considered an artwork until a certain date. Is it a critical comment of the art market, or is it an attempt to create a paradox in which the traditional concept of "author" with his typical manifestation, such as the signature, or the act of dating an artwork, are used in a different way?

URA DRŽAVLJANSKE VZGOJE / HOMELAND LESSON, Đasper i Đons kustos / curator: Jernej Forbici

Đasper i Đons se pojavljata zgolj posredno, kot izraz umetniških akcij in se ob otvoritvah in dogodkih nikoli ne pojavljata osebno, klub temu pa dogodke ves čas budno spremljata. Projekt je živ, se nenehno nadgrajuje in se vedno dotika aktualne družbeno politične realnosti/banalnosti, takšne kot jo preko medijev servira politika. Politika ni v službi državljana, ampak je namenjena zgolj sama sebi in se izraža s pomočjo »politične korektnosti« in drugih orodij potvarjanja resničnosti. Vest politike je mrtva, zavest državljana pa omamljena z lastnimi težavami. Đasper i Đons are present only indirectly, as an expression of artistic actions and are never personally present at openings and events, though they do follow them closely the entire time. The project is alive and ever-growing and always deals with the current political reality/banality, as served by the politics trough the media. Politics is not in the service of the citizens, it is its own purpose and it expresses itself with the help of “politically correct” methods and other tools of reality distortion. The political conscience is dead and the citizen's consciousness intoxicated by its own problems.

SONGSPOT, Lynn Book kustos / curator: Raphael Di Luzio & Jernej Forbici

SongSpot, ki ga je ustvarila ameriška “trans-medijska” umetnica Lynn Book med svojim bivanjem na Ptuju, je interaktivni performans in instalacija, ki na plan prikliče specifično naravo telesa, ki proizvaja zvok. Z akcijo, ki jo je speljala v mestu, ji je uspelo zbrati nekaj zvočnih in slikovnih artefaktov, ki jih je združila v vozlišču SongSpot. S pomočjo zbranega je ustvarila resonančno arhitekturo zvoka življenja, ki jo je predstavila na koncertu na dan otvoritev. Ta je vključeval tako solistične kompozicije, kot tudi improvizacije s Ptujčani, ki so sami sebe in druge transformirali skozi moč svojih zvočnih teles. SongSpot, created by American trans-media artist Lynn Book during her residence in Ptuj, is an interactive performance and site-specific installation that calls forth the threshold nature of the voicing body. After having collected some audio and image artefacts from the city-wide activation accumulated at the SongSpot hub, the artist created a resonant architecture of the sound of living, which was presented in a culminating concert on the day of the openings that featured both solo compositions and collaborative compositions and improvisations with people from Ptuj, who transformed themselves and others through the power of voicing bodies.

Small Histories (Majhne zgodovine) je rastoče umetniško delo, v katerem lahko obiskovalec zamenja kakšen svoj predmet za enega od predmetov, ki jih je ustvarila in razstavila avtorica. Vsak predmet ima pripisano lažno zgodovino in v zameno mora tudi sodelujoči svojemu predmetu pripisati zgodovino, ki je lahko resnična ali izmišljena in lahko izboljša status ali vrednost razstavljenega predmeta. S tem, ko zaobidemo denarno vrednost predmeta, je njegova vrednost določena z menjavo predmeta za predmet ter z izmenjavo zgodb in domišljije. Small Histories is an evolving artwork in which the visitor can exchange an item of their own for one of the multiple objects created and displayed by the artist. Each object will be attributed a false history, and in exchange the participant must also attribute their object with a written history attached as a label. These histories can be true or false and used to enhance the status or desirability of the item. Bypassing the monetary value of an item, its value is deemed by the exchange of object for object, and through the exchange of stories and imaginings.

RAZSTAVA / EXHIBITION: THE AREA OF BUSTLE kustos / curator: Manuel Frara

Projekt je zasnovan kot enotno delo, sestavljeno iz različnih elementov – videa, zvočne umetnosti, digitalnih slik in drugih tipov del, ki so jih ustvarili umetniki med svojim bivanjem na Ptuju v okviru festivala Art Stays 2010. The Area of Bustle NEW MEDIA MADE in ITALY je platforma, ki vključuje 12 umetnikov, povabljenih k raziskovanju izražanju skozi umetnost in iskanju novih interpretacij glavnih orodij novih medijev. V tem smislu je razstava, ki jo gosti razstavišče Stari zapori, zgradila pot, na kateri se gledalec sooča s celoto projekta in individualnim značajem posameznih del: gre za enkratno izkušnjo, ko se gledišče postavi na novo in se prične gibati skozi razstavni prostor. Conceived as a single work composed of various elements – single-channel video, sound art and digital painting, glitch art just to name a few types of works that were completed by the artists in residence in Ptuj during Art Stays 2010. The Area of Bustle NEW MEDIA MADE in ITALY is a platform involving 12 artists, who were invited for the particular research expressed through art, reinterpreting some of the main tools of new media. In this sense the exhibition hosted in the space of the Former Prison has built a path in which the viewer is confronted with the totality of the project and the singularity of the work: a unique experience where the point of view repositions itself and begins moving through the exhibition space.

TECHE: Giacomo Artusi & Andrea Cazzagon kustos / curator: Manuel Frara

Osemindvajsetega avgusta zvečer je Art Stays na zunanji terasi hotela Mitra gostil „Teche“, zapleten projekt umetnikov Giacoma Artusija in Andrea Cazzagona, zgrajenega iz steklenih razstavnih posod, kjer je vibriral tih zvok. Trideseta avgusta, po zaključku velike otvoritve razstav Art Stays je avdio umetnik Paolo Calzavara [Pax~] v sodelovanju z Manuelom Fraro (Interno3) v Bastiji predstavil evolucijo projekta “Fluxes”, z novim nežnim zvokom zvočnih polj, ki je dialogiral z real-time spremenjenimi video posnetki. Oba medijska performansa sta bila del projekta The Area of Bustle, kustosa Manuela Frare, pripravljenim v sodelovanju z Akademijo za likovno umetnost v Benetkah. During the evening of the 28th August, in the outdoor garden of Hotel Mitra, Art Stays hosted „Teche“, a complex project of Giacomo Artusi and Andrea Cazzagon built in glass display boxes where a quiet sound resonate. On the 30th August, a conclusion of the grand opening of Art Stays the sound-artist Paolo Calzzavara [Pax~], in collaboration with Manuel Frara (Interno3) presented in Bastija an evolution of "Fluxes", replaced with the smooth sound of the recording fields, conversing on opposite side with the modified video images in real time. Both live media sets are part of the project "The area of bustle", curated by Manuel Frara in collaboration with the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice.

Delček mozaika iz italijanskih Term di Caracalla v Rimu oziroma njegova reprodukcija je zdaj del arheološke zbirke v Sončnem parku pred Dominikanskim samostanom na Ptuju. Švicarski umetnik Oppy De Bernardo z delom primerja podobni, a različni zgodovini Ptuja in Rima, rimskih mest, v katerih so se prostori kot terme v rimskih časih izkazali za izjemno družbeno pomembne. Ob tem se sprašuje, kako so terme vplivale na razvoj mest v preteklih nekaj stoletjih. A fraction of the Italian mosaic from Terme di Caracalla in Rome has been reproduced and is now part of the collection of the archaeological area of the Sun Park in the outer Dominican Monastery Courtyard in Ptuj. Making a comparison between the real but different histories of Rome and Ptuj, both Roman cities, Swiss artist Oppy De Bernardo reflects on the importance that sites like thermal baths had during the Roman age and how they have contributed to the development of the city in the last few centuries.

“Site-specific” projekt Trackeds: Ptuj, ki ga je izbral Jernej Forbici in je bil predstavljen 25. julija pred Mestnim stolpom v centru mesta, prikazuje zgodovinske in simbolične lokacije Ptuja. S pomočjo novorazvite programske opreme so člani umetniškega kolektiva BridA (Tom Kerševan, Sendi Mango in Jurij Pavlica) raziskovali problematiko konstantnega nadzora nad gibanjem ljudi s pomočjo novih tehnologij in izpostavili vse resničnejšo nevarnost njihove zlorabe. The site-specific project Trackeds: Ptuj, curated by Jernej Forbici and presented on 25th July in front of the Tower in the city centre, shows the historical and symbolic locations of Ptuj. With the help of newly developed software, BridA (Tom Kerševan, Sendi Mango and Jurij Pavlica) explores the issue of constant control of people's movements with new technologies and points out the increasing possibilities of their abuse.

The house of Memory (Hiša spominov) ameriškega umetnika Raphaela Di Luzia je sestavljena iz dveh projektov, nastalih za Art Stays 2010: In My Mind Eye: A House of Memories, velika risba na papirju, ki je postavljena v Galeriji Tenzor, ter veliki “Yurt”, zgrajen iz odpadlih drevesnih vej in drugih naravnih materialov, ki so odmrli in padli na zemljo. Slednji stoji na Slovenskem trgu. Obe deli sta način prikaza kraja, kjer avtorjevi spomini nekaj časa metaforično prebivajo. The house of Memory by American artist Raphael Di Luzio consists of two projects created for Art Stays 2010: In my Mind Eye: A House of Memories, a large charcoal drawing on paper presented at Gallery Tenzor, and a big Yurt, formed with fallen tree branches and other purely natural materials that have died and fallen to the ground, placed in Slovenski trg square. Each of them is a different form of representation of the place of memory, where his memories would metaphorically be housed for a short time.

SITE SPECIFIC

Interno3 v italijanski in mednarodni javnosti predstavlja kapilarni fenomen, ki postaja vedno bolj difuzen in v katerem se posamezniki in skupine soočajo z novim vmesnikom – s sodelovanjem ustvarjajo svobodno in neodvisno obliko, ki se oblikuje skozi uporabo različnih medijev – od videa do računalnika, od zvoka do literature v povezavi z deli sodelujočih umetnikov. Interno3 se ne odlikuje le po raziskovanju novih medijev, temveč predvsem po nastali mutaciji elektronskih podob, kot sta A Beautiful Day in Skytape #3, deli, predstavljeni na festivalu Art Stays 2010. Interno3 presents to the Italian and international public a capillary phenomenon that is becoming more diffused, in which individuals and partnerships confront themselves within a new interface, working side by side to develop a free and independent form that takes shape by using various media – from the video to the computer, from sound to the use of literature connected with the participating artists' own work. What distinguishes Interno3 is not just the pursuit of new media but mainly the produced mutation of an electronic image as in A Beautiful Day and Skytape #3, the artworks presented at Art Stays 2010.

“Novi mediji” je širok izraz, pogosto povezan s tehnologijo. Percepcija in interakcija sta reakcija, odgovor, mišljenje in druge vrste povratnih informacij med posameznikom in umetniškim delom. Raphael Di Luzio je izbral 11 ameriških umetnikov, ki uporabljajo različne oblike novih medijev in individualno interpretirajo ideje novih medijev kot izraznega sredstva, sredstva percepcije, načina za ustvarjanje transformacije gledalca v udeleženca v umetniškem delu. New Media Exchange Maine, USA ni projekt, ki bi bil omejen samo na uporabo tehnologije. V času, ko je postavljen, mora dopustiti, da gledalec od pasivnega ogledovanja in vloge opazovalca preide v odnos hevrističnega dialoga z umetniškim delom. New media is a wide-ranging term often tied to technology. Perception and interaction is reaction, response, cognition and other kinds of feedback between an individual and a work. Raphael Di Luzio has chosen 11 American artists who use various forms of new media and individually interpret the idea of new media as an expressive tool, a tool of perception, a means to create the transformation of the viewer into a participant in the artwork. New Media Exchange Maine, USA is not a project limited to the use of technology. It must exist in time and allow the viewer to transform from the act of the passive gaze and role of the observer into a relation of heuristic feedback with the piece.

V času festivala je umetnik Tomaž Plavec uporabil 5000 lesenih kock in skupaj s Ptujčani zgradil na Slovenskem trgu veliko drevo želja (Wish Tree). Kiparska instalacija izraža in predstavlja ideje in misli ter predvsem želje o prihodnosti Ptuja. During the days of the festival 5000 blocks of small wooden squares were used by the artist Tomaž Plavec and some Ptuj's people to build in the Slovenski trg square, in front the Theatre, a big wish tree. The sculpture installation would like to reflect and represent ideas and thoughts, but also wishes for the town's future.

V sodelovanju z grafično delavnico Busato, Galerijo Kro Art Contemporary in kmalu za javnost odprtim Centrom za umetniško grafiko CUG je Art Stays v hotelu Mitra pripravil novo skupinsko razstavo poimenovano “Sodobna grafika”. Gre za pregled sodobne grafične umetnosti, njenih reprodukcijskih razlik in tehnik. Izhajajoč iz dejstva raznolikosti so dela mednarodnih umetnikov Johanne Klement, Ine Loiztl, Stefana Luciana, Darine Peeva in Tomaža Plavca ustvarila dialog različnih izražanj, kjer je skupni imenovalec čista in natančna, preprosta ali informalna grafična poteza. Curated by Art Stays, thanks to the collaboration of Stamperia d'arte Busato, Kro Art Contemporary and the new International Centre of Graphic Arts CUG in Ptuj, a new group exhibition named „Contemporary graphic“ at Hotel Mitra in Ptuj. It reviews the contemporary graphic art developments, in its different reproductive techniques. Starting from this position the international artists Johanna Klement, Ina Loiztl, Stefano Luciano, Darina Peeva and Tomaž Plavec dialogue versus their diversity expression, where the common denominator is a pure and rigorous attention to a simple and informal graphic gesture.

Fenos in njegova mlada ekipa že več let dela in sodeluje z Art Staysom pri spreminjanju in razvoju identitete najstarejšega slovenskega mesta Ptuj. V času festivala je Fenos s svojo ekipo D'FM ustvaril pisan grafiti projekt na zidu nabrežja reke Drave, blizu Miheličeve galerije. Na dan odprtja razstav pa je skupaj s skupino kreativnih FUN(K), katere člani so Friderik Kramberger, Smililjan Škarica, Tine Gros in Sašo Fenos predstavil v starem ambientu Bastije pod barvami in lučmi videov ameriških umetnikov nenavaden in izredno zanimiv modni performans, ki je prehajal med kreacijo in oblikovanjem. For several years Fenos and his young team are working in collaboration with Art Stays to change and develop the identity of Ptuj, known as the oldest Slovenian town. If during the days of the festival Fenos with his graffiti group, D'FM created a new coloured project on the riverside walls of the river Drava near Miheličeva Gallery; during the official opening Fenos with Creative group Fun(K), Friderik Kramberger, Smililjan Škarica and Tine Gros have presented under the colours and lights of the videos of American artists an extraordinary fashion performance between creation and design inside the old space of Bastija.
