Festivalski dogodki / Festival Events


Mi Kuratorka: Rene Rusjan

Mi. Smo to mi in vi, jaz in ti, so to tudi oni – in kdo so? Smo to Goričani, Slovenci, Evropejci, kristjani, ateisti, revolucionarji, mame, otroci, družine, take in drugačne? So oni, ki prihajajo tudi mi, smo mi tisti, ki ostajamo, ali morda odhajamo? Smo mi tisti, ki živimo tu in zdaj, ali vsi, ki smo kdaj in kdaj bomo živeli? Kdo smo mi? Kdo vse smo lahko mi? Človek? So živali tudi mi? Kaj pa druga bitja tega planeta, so tudi mi? Tudi, če dihajo na škrge ali sploh ne dihajo? Smo mi skupaj s tistimi za ozvezdji, ali so to oni, ste to vi? Kaj si imamo povedati, mi? Pred meseci sem sprožila proces, ki se je razvijal skozi vse leto. Zgoščeno dogajanje, ki se zgodi v festivalskem tednu decembra 2016, je le zaključek neke faze tega procesa, pravzaprav je to le točka, kjer se srečajo poti vseh sodelujočih, je festival, praznovanje in predstavitev, komunikacija skozi dogodke, ko se nam pridružijo tudi obiskovalci. Posebnost letošnje edicije Pixxelpointa je posebej dolg in razvejan proces, skozi katerega povezujem sodelujoče v njem. Umetnice v sodelovanju z drugimi umetniki in s študenti umetnosti, z znanstvenicami ter laboratoriji in raziskovalnimi centri Univerze v Novi Gorici, z lokalno skupnostjo, v raziskovanju specifik obmejnega življenja v luči mednarodnih tokov, vse to na križiščih med umetnostjo, znanostjo in družbo ter vsakdanjim življenjem.

Morda je glavno vprašanje, ki si ga zastavljam skozi ta proces, kako vidimo drug drugega. Ne le skozi umetnost ali znanost, temveč predvsem, kako nam vse to pomaga preživeti, kako je s tem povezana usoda človeškega bitja. Seveda se ob naslovu Mi vprašam po Zamjatinovem romanu iz leta 1921, v kakšne ograde in steklene kupole smo ujeti zdaj in kdo so Varuhi in Dobrotniki, ki nam urejajo življenja; je izbira med menoj in vami, lahko še kako drugačna? Smo kot družba selfijev v drugi skrajnosti ali je to le iluzija? Kje je meja med razumevanjem mene in nas, ki spoštuje mene, a jo enako skrbi za nas, vas in njih? Svobodo zamenjati za srečo … je to to?

Druga referenca iz mojega otroškega praspomina, iz šestdesetih let, je še starejša številka revije LIFE iz zbirke mojega očeta. Spominjam se te magične fotografije, kjer polna dvorana ljudi, s "čudnimi" očali, zre v skupno "prihodnost". Takšna mi je ostala v spominu tudi kasneje, ko sem izvedela, da ljudje sedijo v dvorani, kjer si bodo pravkar ogledali prvi 3D film. (Gre za fotografijo sodelavca revije LIFE J. R. Eyermana, Para­mount Theater v Hollywoodu, 1952, premiera prvega celovečernega filma v barvni 3D tehniki Natural Vision.) V mojem spominu ti ljudje zrejo v bodočnost, polno napredka, to je čas poletov na Luno (1969), ko sva z nono na naši črno beli televiziji spremljali razburljiva poročila s Cape Canaverala in Apollovih javljanj v Houston, oddajo Po sledeh napredka, polno obetajočih izumov, ki nam bodo izboljšali življenje. V zraku je bilo upanje in zaupanje v svetlo prihodnost in napredek ter, ne glede na hladno vojno, zazrtost v zvezde. Spominjajoč se teh časov se sprašujem, kako sedaj izgleda ta njihova prihodnost. Zrli so sem, kjer smo sedaj mi. Kaj se je vmes zgodilo, kam smo prispeli? Tehnični napredek se je res zgodil, vendar – ali smo zaradi tega res srečnejši? Kaj pa družbeni odnosi, kakšen je ta vidik takratne prihodnosti, naše sedanjosti? Kaj lahko povemo njim iz naše perspektive, in s tem sami sebi v sedanjosti in prihodnosti? Kako lahko skozi to pogledamo na lastno prihodnost in prihodnost zanamcev?


We Curator: Rene Rusjan

We. Does this mean the We and the collective You, You and I, or is there also a They, and if so, who does that mean? Goricans, Slovenians, Europeans, Christians, atheists, revolutionaries, mothers, children, families of all types? Are the new arrivals also We, are We the ones staying or are We perhaps the ones departing? Are We those living here and now, or those who have ever lived and ever will? Who is it that we are? And who is it that we can be? Only humans? Are animals included in the concept of We? What about other creatures of the planet, are they also We? Even those that breathe with gills, or those that do not breathe at all? Does We include those beyond the stars, or are those They, or You? What do We have to say to each other? Some months ago I started a process which has been taking form throughout the year. The concentrated sequence of events scheduled during the festival week taking place in December 2016 is only the conclusion of a stage of this process, only an intersection where the paths of all contributors meet, it is a festival, a celebration and an exhibition, a communication exercise via the events, where the visitors will join us. This edition of Pixxelpoint is a particularly long and widespread process, through which I bring together the contributing artists. Artists in collaboration with other artists and art students, scientists and the laboratories and research centers of the University of Nova Gorica, join together with the local community in the research of the specific nature of living on the state border in light of international events, where art, science, society and everyday life meet.

Perhaps the key question I ask throughout this process is how we see one another. Not just through art or science, but most of all how all of this helps us to survive, what it means for the destiny of the human being. Of course, by using the title We I find myself thinking about the Zamyatin novel from 1921, asking myself in what enclosures and glass domes are we trapped right

now? And who are the Guardians and Benefactors arranging our lives; can the choice between Me and We be any different? As members of the selfie society, are we on the other end of the spectrum, or is it just an illusion? What separates We from Me, who respects Me but is equally concerned about We, You and Them? To exchange freedom for happiness... Is that what this is? The second reference, which comes from an ancient memory of my childhood, the sixties, is the even older issue of LIFE magazine from my father’s collection. I remember this magical photograph, depicting an entire hall of people with 'weird' glasses looking into their shared 'future'. This memory stuck with me even when I was later told that the people are sitting in a theater, about to watch their first film in 3D. (Photography by LIFE magazine correspondent J. R Eyerman, Paramount Theater, Hollywood, 1952, first color 3-D feature-length film premiere, portrayed in Natural Vision). In my recollection, these people are looking into a future full of progress. This was the time of the moon landing (1969), when my grandmother and I would watch exciting reports from Cape Canaveral and Apollo’s communications with Houston, the television program 'Po sledeh napredka' ('On the tracks of progress'), which was full of exciting inventions promising to make our lives better. Hope was in the air, and a promise of a bright future and progress. Despite the Cold War, our gaze was directed to the stars. Thinking back to these times, I ask myself what this future of theirs looks like now. They were looking to where we are now. What happened in the meantime, where have we come to? There was indeed technical progress, but – did it make us happier? What about social relations - how does that aspect of the then-future, our now-present, look? What, from our perspective, can we tell them – and therefore what can we tell ourselves? In this context, how do we view our own future and the future of our children?


Proces nastajanja pričujoče festivalske edicije V uvod o svojem kuratorskem konceptu ne morem vstopiti, ne da bi vzpostavila in izpostavila kontekst, v katerem živim in delujem. Izhajala sem namreč tesno iz njega in vsaj treh svojih profesionalnih delovanj: kot umetnica, dolgoletna pedagoginja in profesorica ter soustanoviteljica in direktorica programov na umetniški akademiji. Nobena od treh torej ni kuratorska pozicija, hkrati pa vse vsebujejo elemente, ki sem se jih odločila uporabljati v procesu nastajanja programa festivalske edicije Pixxelpoint 2016. Prvenstveno seveda izhajam iz svoje umetniške prakse: sem vizualna umetnica s koreninami v kiparstvu, ki ga razumem predvsem v relaciji prostor/odnosi; moje delo je vedno predvsem sredstvo za komunikacijo, zato pristop, metodo in medij, pa naj bo to instalacija, javni socialni projekt, participativno dejanje, video ali interaktivni digitalni kos, pisna korespondenca, članek, zvočno delo, čitalnica, delavnica, izbiram glede na kontekst in situacijo. Umetnost raziskujem skozi prizmo njene vloge v naših življenjih, kot orodja za vzpostavljanje komunikacije med nami samimi, različnimi nivoji družbe, odnosa do zgodovine in sedanjosti, relacij med različnimi disciplinami, razumevanju drugega. Po rodu Goričanka, a zgodaj odšla v Ljubljano, se vseskozi zavedam tudi lokalnih in čezmejnih zgodovinskih in drugih dejstev obmejnega območja Goriške. Po selitvi Visoke šole za umetnost (sedaj Akademije umetnosti) Univerze v Novi Gorici iz Ljubljane v Gorico, se še posebej posvečam njeni integraciji v goriško okolje, povezovanju z akterji kulture in umetnosti z obeh strani meje, odnosu do zgodovinskih posebnosti in izzivom sodobnosti, v katere med drugim vključujemo možnosti, ki jih odpirajo laboratoriji, raziskovalni centri in fakultete Univerze v Novi Gorici in neizkoriščeni potenciali, ki se ponujajo. Skozi univerzo se odpirajo tudi mednarodne možnosti, ki jih Akademija umetnosti uresničuje skozi številna sodelovanja in vedno večjo ter pestrejšo mednarodno zasedbo študentov filma, animacije, fotografije, novih medijev in sodobnih umetniških praks. Ta pogled, iz obmejnega območja, točke, kjer vsako leto nastaja Pixxelpoint, mi je bil zelo pomemben pri snovanju festivalske edicije. Kje smo, kakšne potenciale imamo, ali vemo drug za drugega, kako lahko sodelujemo?

Rene Rusjan, delovna skica / working sketch, januar 2016


Kaj sem si torej zastavila pred skoraj letom dni? Raziskovanje kreativnih potencialov lokalne regije z obeh strani meje premesiti skozi različne perspektive, ki jih prinašajo vabljeni umetniki iz svojih okolij in jih odslikujejo nazaj v univerzum. Proces za nekatere sodelujoče poteka več mesecev, za druge le nekaj tednov ali dni, a čisto vsak naj bi skozenj prekvasil svoje delo v sodelovanju z nekom drugim, doživel ali izkusil nekaj novega. Nekatere umetnike sem povabila že zelo zgodaj, jih povezala, postavila v določen kontekst iz katerega smo izhajali, da bi razvili kompleksnejše projekte. Druge sem povabila z že gotovimi deli, ki pa se naj v novih kontekstih okolja Pixxelpointa premesijo in dobijo nove konotacije. Mnogi med njimi so skozi delavnice že polno vstopili v sodelovanja s študenti in lokalnim okoljem, drugi se bodo soočali na tematskih diskusijah, ki se bodo vrstile čez teden ali na sprehodih med številnimi lokacijami festivala. Redakcija pričujočega kataloga se zaključuje mesec dni pred festivalom. Seveda je med načrtom in realizacijo precej razlik, a ne v glavnih točkah zasnove. Lahko rečem, da se je do sedaj zgodilo mnogo zelo posebnih interakcij in da se že kažejo možnosti razvoja in nadaljnjih sodelovanj, kar je bil glavni namen tega procesa. Seveda pa si želim, da vstopimo v zadnjo fazo pred realizacijo z enako pozornostjo in poskrbimo, da se vse te energije zgostijo, delijo z obiskovalci in naključnimi mimoidočimi v skupnem festivalskem dogajanju. Preizpraševanje procesa in dejavnikov se je razvijalo skozi model tristranih prizem (gl. delovne skice) in fraktalnih modelov, kot jih sama imenujem. Npr. prvi nivo združevanja treh področij, umetnosti, znanosti in družbe, preveriti v relaciji z vsakdanjim življenjem. Kaj to pomeni? Predvsem, naj se posamezna področja ne zapirajo sama v svoje kroge. Da jih preverjamo skozi prizmo drugih področij in vidikov vsakdanjega življenja, družbenih dogodkov, znanstvenih raziskovanj, umetniških iniciativ … in spet življenja izven teh kategorij. Umetniški projekt preveriti v odnosu do znanosti in do vsakdanjega življenja; navezavo umetniškega projekta v znanstvenem okolju skomunicirati v okolje vsakdanjega življenja; segment vsakdanjega življenja opazovati z očmi znanosti in umetnosti; študentki umetnosti in študentu znanosti ponuditi možnost sodelovanja z gostujočimi umetniki; skupino starejših občanov povezati s skupino otrok, ki s tretjim, morda umetnikom morda znanstvenico, opravi neko dejavnost; preveriti, kako se neka umetniška iniciativa (npr. Postaja Topolove), preverjena skozi učinke na vsakdanje življenje ljudi, vidi s stališča znanosti. Model tristranih prizem in fraktalnih modelov omogoča delegiranje in cepljenje na vedno manjše sodelujoče delce (povabim določene sodelujoče v prvih fazah,


15 ki predlagajo in prevzamejo delo z naslednjo skupino, npr. z raziskovalno skupino študentov na projektu, morda zaključni nalogi), ni pa nujno, da se vse te vključi v končno razstavo. Skozi proces se razvije tudi sodelovanje pri oblikovanju končnega izbora projektov v smiselno celoto, ki se ob bližnjem pogledu spet lahko razveja na drobne koščke. V svoje fraktalne modele tako povezujem teme, umetnike, institucije, kontekste; iz teh sestavljam tematske grozde; jih umeščam na lokacije ali obratno. Raziskujem skupaj z ljudmi, ki sem jih srečala na poti in z njimi ustvarjam interakcijo, iz katere nastaja nekaj novega in zanimivega. Zame, za sodelujoče v procesu in upam da tudi za ljudi, ki niso bili del tega procesa, ampak se nam bodo pridružili na festivalu. Posebni partner festivala Pixxelpoint je v letu 2016 Univerza v Novi Gorici, ki poleg Akademije umetnosti odpira tudi vrata svojih laboratorijev, raziskovalnih centrov, institutov, fakultet in visokih šol. Kako? Nekatere umetnike sem že ob povabilu v proces skušala povezati z znanstveniki in nekatere od rezultatov sodelovanj lahko vidimo na razstavi. Javnost pa je povabljena tudi na obiske in diskusije.

Zakaj festival sodobnih umetniških praks? Festival Pixxelpoint se je pričel kot festival računalniških umetnosti ter svoj podnaslov spremenil kar nekajkrat. To je usoda mnogih festivalov. Če so vezani na nove medije, se ti mediji spreminjajo in poimenovanja sčasoma postajajo vprašljiva. Že moj predhodnik, dvakratni kurator festivala medijskih umetnosti, Igor Štromajer, je nagovarjal k spremembi podnaslova in s tem usmeritve. Odprl je vrata in jaz sem to priložnost izkoristila. Letošnja edicija se torej razprostira na široko področje sodobnih umetniških praks. To mi daje svobodo, da lahko izhajam iz konteksta in ne medija, kar pojmujem kot osnovo za svoje delo. Morda se festival naslednje leto vrne v prejšnje okvire ali si morda nadene nov podnaslov, ki bo ustrezal novim razmeram. Cenim odločitev organizatorja, Kulturnega doma Nova Gorica, da podpre kuratorja tudi v tej točki.

Tema 17. festivalske edicije Temo sem najprej razvijala intuitivno iz prvega nivoja tristranih prizem in skozi rast fraktalnega sodelovanja, s prvimi povabljenimi umetniki in projekti, okrog katerih sem pletla naslednji nivo. Tema je bila vseskozi tu, le poimenovanje se je moralo izluščiti skupaj s procesom. Mi. Z vsakim dodatnim znakom, z vprašajem, z dodatno besedo, bi temo zožila, preozko uokvirila. Tako ostaja odprta za vsakogar, da nanjo reagira po svoje.

The Creation Process of the Present Edition of the Festival I cannot begin writing this introduction to my curatorial concept without first establishing and emphasizing the context in which I live and work. It comes as a direct result of at least three areas of my professional career: as an artist, as a long-time educator and professor, and as a co-founder and program director at the School of Arts. None of these three areas fit the curatorial position, yet all three contain elements I chose to use in preparing the line-up of the 2016 edition of Pixxelpoint. Of course, my primary perspective is my own artistic practice: I am a visual artist rooted in sculpture, which I understand mainly in the context of space/ relationships; my work is first and foremost a means of communication, therefore I always carefully choose my approach, method and medium - whether it be an installation, public social project, participative action, video or interactive digital piece, written correspondence, article, sound piece, reading room, workshop depending on the context and situation. I always observe art through the prism of the role it plays in our lives, as a tool for establishing communications between ourselves, various layers of society, a tool for exploring our attitudes to history and the present time, the relationships between different disciplines and a tool for understanding the Other. I was born in Gorica, but left it for Ljubljana in my early age. Even still, I have always been aware of the local history and other facts about Gorica’s surroundings, on both sides of the border. Since the School of Arts of the University of Nova Gorica relocation from Ljubljana to Gorica, we have dedicated special attention to the school’s integration into the local environment, building ties with local representatives of art and culture from both sides of the border, promoting awareness of the historical characteristics and the challenges of modern times. This includes new opportunities made possible by the laboratories, research centers and the faculties of the University of Nova Gorica, as well as all the untapped potential that presents itself. The University also offers many international opportunities which the School of Arts has created through its numerous collaborations and the growing and increasingly diverse number of international students of film, animation, photography, new media and contemporary artistic practices.


This border region perspective, a view from the central point which hosts Pixxelpoint each year, has played an important part in the preparation process of this festival edition. Where are we, what kind of potential do we have, are we aware of each other and how can we work together? So what was the objective I put before myself a year ago? My goal was to research local creative potentials from both sides of the border, examine them from the point of view of the artists that come from different environments and reflect them back into the universe. For some contributing artists, this process developed over several months, for others a few weeks or even days – but each artist was invited to enhance their work through artistic collaboration with others, or experience something new. I invited some artists quite early on in order to connect them, place them in a specific context in order to develop more complex projects. Others were invited with finished works, which would then take on new connotations in the context of Pixxelpoint. Through our workshops, many of them have already begun working with students and the local environment, while others will meet at thematic discussions taking place over the week, or somewhere along the way between the festival’s many locations. The editing of the catalog is about to end a month before the festival. As one would expect, there are quite a few deviations from the plans in the final realization – but the main concepts have remained the same. I can say that I have seen many truly special interactions so far, and opportunities for development and further collaboration have already shown themselves – which was the main purpose of this process. Of course, I would like to enter the final stage with the same amount of care and make sure that these energies converge and reach the festival visitors and random passers-by experiencing this festival event. Reflection on the process and the factors involved developed through a triangular prism model (see working sketches) and fractal models, as I call them. For example, the first level involves bringing the three disciplines of art, science and society together and re-examining them as they interact with everyday life. What does it mean? First and foremost, it means that individual disciplines should not fence


21

themselves in. They should be tested through a prism of other disciplines and aspects of everyday life, social events, scientific research, art initiatives... and life outside these categories. Testing an art project in relation to science and everyday life; connecting an artist project in a scientific environment, communicating with the mundane environment; observing the segment of everyday life through the eyes of science and art; offering a student of art and a student of science the opportunity to work with guest artists; connecting a group of elderly locals with a group of children, providing a service for a third party, perhaps an artist; testing how an art initiative (e.g. Topolò Station), after its impacts on everyday life have been examined, is seen from the scientific perspective. The triangle prism and fractal model allows for delegation and splitting into smaller components (I first invite certain participants, who then propose and coordinate the work of another team, e.g. a research group of students working on a project), however not all of them are necessarily included in the final exhibit. Through this process, also a collaboration in designing a final selection of the projects is made and a consolidated whole is formed, which may once again become fragmented into tiny pieces upon close inspection. I use my fractal models to connect themes, artists, institutions, contexts; I use them to form thematic clusters and place them in specific locations - and viceversa. I explore together with the people I have met along the way and we create mutual interactions, which spark something new and interesting. Interesting for me, for those involved in the process, and I hope for the people who will join us at the festival, even though they were never part of the process. In 2016, Pixxelpoint festival has formed a special partnership with the University of Nova Gorica. In addition to opening the doors of the School of Arts, it also opens its laboratories, research centers, institutes, faculties and schools. How so? I invited certain artists to participate in the process early on and tried to connect them with scientists - we will be able to see some of the results at the exhibition. In addition to visiting the venues, the visitors are also invited to actively join the discussion.


Why a Festival of Contemporary Art Practices? The Pixxelpoint festival started out as a computer art festival, and has since changed its description a few times. Such has been the fate of many festivals. If the festivals are associated with new media, these media will change over time and their names may lose their relevance. Even my predecessor, two-time curator of the media art festival Igor Štromajer, suggested changing the description and focus of the festival. He opened the door and I seized the opportunity. This year’s edition thus extends to a broad range of contemporary art practices. Rather than the medium, this gives me the freedom to depart from the context, which I consider to be the underlying basis of my work. Perhaps next year the festival will go back to its previous format, or perhaps it will take on a new description to fit the context. I appreciate the organizers’ decision to support the curator in this venture.

The Theme of the 17th Festival Edition I developed the theme intuitively at first, from the first level of the triangular prism model and the growth of fractal-based collaboration between the artists and projects I initially invited, and around whom I weaved the next level. The theme has been present throughout, but the name itself had to eventually emerge as the process developed. We. By adding any additional character, question mark or word, I would risk narrowing-down the theme, boxing it in too tightly. Thus, the theme remains open to individual interpretation.

Zahvale Ob zaključku redakcije kataloga in tik pred pričetkom festivala, se želim zahvaliti veliko ljudem. Najprej vsem umetnikom, znanstvenikom in drugim sodelujočim, ki so z mano vstopili v proces, tudi tistim, s katerimi smo morda pričeli in skozi mesece razvijali interdisciplinarna sodelovanja, a nam v danih okoliščinah še ni uspelo ustvariti rezultatov, ki bi se jih že lahko predstavilo, so se pa med novimi znanci prižgale iskrice, ki vodijo v sodelovanja v prihodnosti. Zahvaliti se želim svojim sodelavcem na Akademiji umetnosti Univerze v Novi Gorici, ki so projekt sprejeli kot izziv in nekatere svoje delavnice s študenti tematsko usmerili v razmislek na temo Mi; umetnikom, ki so poleg dela na svojem projektu za festival v svoje delo povabili tudi študente ter tem istim študentom, da so izziv sprejeli; sodelavcem Univerze v Novi Gorici, ki so odprli vrata za raziskovanja z umetniki. Zahvaliti se želim mnogim posameznikom in organizacijam iz obeh Goric, ki so se vključili in ponudili svoje lokacije in pomoč pri izvedbi. Zahvaliti se želim sorodnim festivalom in organizacijam drugje, ki so mi omogočili predstavitve zasnove festivalske edicije ali odprte diskusije na določena poglavja že skozi proces razvijanja. Seveda se želim zahvaliti tudi organizatorju festivala za priložnost, da sem lahko ta proces zasnovala in sprožila. Rene Rusjan

Thanks At the conclusion of the catalog editorial and just before the start of the festival I want to thank many people. Firstly to all the artists, scientists and other participating who entered into this process with me, including those with whom we planted a collaboration and have been developing interdisciplinary collaborations through months, but due to circumstances have not yet managed to harvest the results; however some sparks did fly among new acquaintances, leading to future collaboration. I would like to thank to my colleagues at University of Nova Gorica School

of Arts who accepted this project as a challenge and thematically focused some of their student workshops reflecting the topic We; the artists who, in addition to working on their own festival project, invited students to join them; at the same time I would like to thank these same students for accepting the challenge; UNG employees who have opened doors for research with the artists. I would like to thank the many individuals and organizations from both towns of Gorica who got involved and offered their locations, assistance and help. I would like to thank the related festivals and organizations elsewhere allowing me to hold presentations or open discussions on certain chapters already during the development phase. Of course, I would like to thank the organizer of the festival for the opportunity to conceive and launch this process. Rene Rusjan

Vzpostavitev poglavij je potekala skupaj z rastjo nekaterih projektov, iz tega so nastajali novi grozdi, podpoglavja, novi projekti. Končna postavitev projektov pod poglavja v katalogu ne pomeni, da le-ti trdno sodijo pod eno poglavje. Večina bi jih lahko domovala vsaj v dveh, nekateri v vseh treh. Skušala sem jih uvrščati po medsebojnih sorodnostih ter po lastnostih, ki v nekem projektu prevladujejo, a z zavedanjem, da bi se zlahka znašli tudi v drugem. Kot so na primer v vseh projektih elementi raziskovanj, generiranja spomina, komunikacije.

Avtorji besedil na straneh posameznih projektov, so avtorji le-teh, sami. Prav tako so, če ni posebej navedeno drugače, avtorji pripadajočega vizualnega materiala. Avtorica uvodov v poglavja je kuratorka. Projects descriptions featured on the individual project pages were written by the authors themselves. Unless stated otherwise, they are also the authors of the visual material. The introductions into individual chapters were written by the curator.

Spomin, spomenik, spominjanje, spomin za prihodnost Memory, monument, remembrance, memory for the future

The chapters were established as certain projects developed, new clusters were formed, with new subchapters and projects. The final categorization of projects under chapters in the catalog does not imply that these projects should be firmly locked into any specific chapter. Most of them could be placed in least two, and some could exist under all three chapters. I sought to arrange them according to their common denominators and primary characteristics, fully aware that they could easily fall under a different chapter, as well. For example, all projects involve elements of research, formation of memories, communication.

Kdo smo mi? Kdo vse smo mi v biološkem smislu? Kam segajo naši prostori? Kako nam teče čas in kaj nam daje ritem? V kakšnih soodvisnostih živimo s svetom in drugimi živimi bitji, kako vplivamo drug na drugega? Seveda so odgovori precej odvisni od izhodišča, kdo smo torej ‘mi’. Merimo človeški, geološki ali kozmološki čas ali pa uporabljamo čisto drugačne koncepte, se oziramo na živo ali tudi neživo naravo, če sploh priznavamo razlike? Kako nam raziskave pomagajo pri razmisleku o naši sedanjosti in prihodnosti? Who is it that we are? Who are we in the biological sense? How far does our space extend? How do we perceive time and what drives our rhythm? What are our correlations with the world and other living organisms, how do we affect each other? Of course, the answers are much dependent on the point of view, so who is the 'We'? Do we use the human, geologic or cosmologic timescale, or do we use entirely different concepts; do we only focus on the organic, or do we include non-organic nature? Do we acknowledge the difference? What assistance does research offer us in thinking about our present and the future?

Kako ohraniti spomin, kako prenesti svojo izkušnjo drugemu? Kdo, katero dejanje, kateri ‘heroj’, je vreden spomenika? Kaj sploh je vloga spomenikov, kdo jih postavlja in kakšen je njihov pomen za nas? In spet: kako ohraniti zmožnost spominjanja, kako se odzvati, ko nas ta zapušča, ko ta zapušča nam drago osebo? In še drugače – kaj ima to s spominom družbene situacije, kot je npr. begunska kriza? Beleženje spominov ljudi, morda edinega, kar še imajo, vendar ta hkrati že generira DNK zapis, spomin za prihodnost – bomo vanj zapisali mržnjo do sočloveka ali solidarnost, empatijo, razumevanje?

How to preserve memory, how to pass on one’s experience? What individual, what action, what 'hero' is worth remembering? What even is the role of monuments, who may build them and what meaning do they hold for us? And then again - how to keep the ability to remember, how to respond once we start to lose it, when memory begins to fade from the minds of our loved ones? And – how does this relate to the memory of social circumstances, such as the refugee crisis? Creating a record of people’s memories, perhaps the only one they have left, while at the same time the same DNA memory is already forming in the individual, a memory for the future – will we encode into it the hatred for our fellow man, or will we encode solidarity, empathy, understanding?

Komunikacija in ustvarjanje skupnosti Communication and building a community Projekti tega poglavja se na nek način soočijo s tukaj in zdaj, povabijo nas k interakciji, takojšnji akciji, ki nas poveže in že smo aktivni soudeleženci v projektu, kjer svoje mesto raziskujemo skozi oči obiskovalca, knjige postavljamo v neobičajnem redu, izmenjujemo si oblačila z neznanci, po mestu nosimo velike kovinske risane like, ki nam znane lokacije s svojo prisotnostjo spremenijo v prostore z nostalgičnim pridihom … Prinašajo nam razmislek, kako na ustaljene vzorce našega vsakdana pogledati drugače, pa tudi, kako preseči danosti brez perspektive, ko na probleme pogledamo na nov način in jih s preobratom nadgradimo v čisto novo kvaliteto. The projects included in this chapter are dealing with the here and now, inviting us to interact, to take prompt action which connects us and makes us active participants in the project, where we explore our position through the eyes of the visitor, we arrange books in peculiar order, we exchange clothes with strangers, carry large metal characters across the town, changing familiar locations through mere presence, introducing an air of nostalgia... They bring reflection as to how our daily routine can be viewed differently, as well as how to transcend our given reality without perspective by viewing problems from a fresh perspective, introducing an entirely new quality by turning things around.

2016 Intermedijska instalacija (zvok, objekt, besedilo) Projekt s čutno potopitvijo v tišino, hlad in temo podzemnih jam obiskovalcem približa okolje, v katerem izraz "mi" ni rezerviran za ljudi. Za živa bitja v tem ekstremnem habitatu biološki čas teče počasneje kot za ljudi, medtem ko neživa narava milijone let geološkega časa beleži v pičlih milimetrih rasti. Hkratno raztezanje in krčenje časa je človeku težko doumljivo, a pronicanje vode, ki ju omogoča, kapljanje srebrnih kapljic, ki odzvanja v tišini jam, nam daje slutiti, da smo vpeti v svet, ki je veliko večji od nas samih. Utekočinjena časovna kapsula s treh avtorskih vidikov interpretira okolje, kjer čas in prostor kljubujeta človeški zaznavi.

2016 Intermedia installation (sound, object, text) This sensuous submersion into the silence, darkness and cold of subterranean caves brings visitors to an environment where the pronoun 'we' is not reserved for people. For living organisms occupying this extreme habitat, biological time proceeds at a much slower pace than it does for humans, while non-living nature measures millions of years of geologic time in mere millimetres. The simultaneous stretching and contracting of time is difficult to comprehend, but the trickling of water which enables it, and the dripping of silvery drops, echoing in the silence of caves, hint at a world that is much larger from ourselves. The Liquid Time Capsule project interprets the environment where time and space defy human perception from three artistic perspectives.

Šum fotonov, NeMir, Kontapost 2015/16 Trije iz cikla video filmov Tense Present je serija video filmov, ki predstavljajo ustvarjalni odziv na temeljno občutenje "napetega" časa v katerem živimo po "koncu zgodovine" oz. o stanju in pojavih v družbi, ki jo filozof in publicist Boris Buden opredeljuje kot predhod od brezrazredne družbe do brezdružbenega razreda. Ali se je dokončno udejanila zamisel Margaret Thacher, da družbe ni, da obstajajo le posamezniki? In kdo smo potem Mi? Video dela se dotikajo vprašanja kritičnosti, solidarnosti, socialnega in nagovarjajo posameznika, da je nujno razumeti družbeno določenost našega bivanja. Produkcija: White Balance Video Šum fotonov: glasba: Bojana Šaljič Podešva; posnetek z dronom: Ergyn Zjeci, EZ Media produkcija


TESNOBNA SEDANJOST TENSE PRESENT Photon Noise, NeMir, Kontapost 2015/16 Three from the video series Tense Present is a series of videos which represent a creative response to the fundamental perception of the 'tense' time in which we are living after the 'end of history', or a response to the social circumstances and phenomena which philosopher and publicist Boris Buden describes as a transition from a classless society to a society-less class. Could it be that Margaret Thatcher’s idea has finally manifest itself, where there is no longer a society, there are only individuals? If that is the case, then who are We? The videos approach the question of criticism, solidarity, sociality, and tell the individual that it is essential to understand the social determination of our existence.

 Zvok / prostorska instalacija Najina instalacija je postavljena v središče kroga Mestne galerije Nova Gorica. Prostorska perspektiva in sama umestitev sta v sozvočju z osrednjo temo letošnjega festivala. Namen instalacije, okrog katere stojijo "drugi", je ustvariti konvergenčno točko spiralno oblikovane poti. Tako nastane notranji prostor in točka opazovanja, kjer sediva midva in od tod opazujeva zunanji svet. V sodelovanju s kulturnim društvom Spazioersetti - Continuo associazione culturale ter festivalom zvočne umetnosti Il Suono in Mostra 2016/2017 v Vidmu (I).
 2016 Sound / space installation Our installation is placed in the center of the circle of the The Nova Gorica City Gallery. The space perspective and the position itself is exploited as a reference to the festival theme. Surrounded by 'the others', our installation aims to create the convergence point of a spiral path to represent the inner space and a vantage point where we sit and observe the outer world. In collaboration with Spazioersetti - Continuo associazione culturale and Il Suono in Mostra sound art festival 2016/2017 in Udine (I).

Ali lahko "mi" kot posamezniki v raziskovanju naših energijskih teles spreminjamo sebe, druge in družbo in s tem vplivamo na vrednote sodobne družbe?

Ekskurzija: Obiskali bomo laboratorije in raziskovalne centre Univerze v Novi Gorici, ki so v Rožni Dolini, Ajdovščini in Vipavi, potem pa se vrnili v Mestno galerijo Nova Gorica, da si ogledamo plod sodelovanja med umetnicama Robertino Šebjanič in Teo Hvala ter znanstvenico Univerze v Novi Gorici, Andreeo Oarga-Mulec. "Našli smo malo, mlado, aktivno in entuziastično univerzo s srečnimi in zadovoljnimi študenti." Tako je o Univerzi v Novi Gorici povedala komisija EUA Institutional Evaluation team. Univerza v Novi Gorici je lansko leto praznovala svojo 20. obletnico. Čeprav je najmanjša med štirimi slovenskimi univerzami, se v njenih šestih laboratorijih, šestih centrih, štirih fakultetah, eni visoki šoli in eni akademiji, dogaja veliko in sega daleč. Ekipe domačih in mednarodnih strokovnjakov raziskujejo v mednarodnih projektih na različnih lokacijah Univerze (poleg treh lokacij, ki jih bomo obiskali, tudi v Gorici in Benetkah) in sodelujejo s sorodnimi institucijami po vsem svetu. Koliko jih poznamo doma? Premalo. Zato je morda priložnost, ko raziskujemo možnosti sodelovanj med umetnostjo in znanostjo, da se podamo po nerazkošnih, vendar dragocenih laboratorijih in centrih Univerze v Novi Gorici. http://www.ung.si/

Prostori znanosti, prostori umetnosti Spaces of Science, Spaces of Art Day trip: We will be visiting the laboratories and research centers of the University of Nova Gorica located in Rožna Dolina, Ajdovščina and Vipava, then return to the Nova Gorica City Gallery, where we will view the result of the artistic collaboration between two artists (Robertina Šebjanič, Tea Hvala) and a scientist (Andreea Oarga-Mulec, University of Nova Gorica). 'We found a small, young, active and enthusiastic university with happy and satisfied students.' This was the opinion of the University of Nova Gorica, as expressed by the EUA Institutional Evaluation team. The University of Nova Gorica celebrated its 20th anniversary last year. Although this is the smallest of four Slovenian universities, its six laboratories, six centers, four faculties, one college and one academy host a multitude of far-reaching activities. Teams of local and international experts are involved in international research projects at various universities (including Gorizia and Venice besides the three locations we will be visiting) and collaborations with similar institutions around the world. How well do we know them back home? Not well enough. Perhaps this will serve as an opportunity to look for new possibilities for collaboration, combining art and science to explore the unassuming, yet valuable laboratories and research centers of the University of Nova Gorica. http://www.ung.si/

2004 Film, 5' 35'' V tem filmu se pojavi več kot tri tisoč žuželk, vsaka na svoji sličici. Ob opazovanju bleščečih odsevov barv in sprememb njihovih teles ter kril se zdi, kot da se v le nekaj minutah izvrši genetski program v razponu več milijonov let. Film deluje tako divje, da se postavlja po robu razlagam tako evolucionistov kot fundamentalistov. Kot bi gledali meskalinske sanje Charlesa Darwina.

As the colors glow and change across their bodies and wings, it seems as if the genetic program spanning over millions of years is taking place in just a few minutes. It is a rampant creation that seems to defy the explanations of evolutionists and fundamentalists. It is like a mescaline vision dreamt by Charles Darwin.

2016 Kritična teorija, urbano, zgodovinsko in politično raziskovanje, arhitektura, spomin, intervencija Monumentalne strategije (pred)mestnih nemirov se osredinjajo na fenomen (pred)mestnih uporov na Zahodu, ki so se v zadnjih desetletjih dogajali v mestih, kot so London, Los Angeles in Pariz. Četudi so bili ti upori kratkoživi, so razkrili pomembne vidike vsakodnevnega urbanega življenja tistih, ki živijo na obrobju: ekonomsko pomanjkanje, politično izključevanje, rasizem in policijsko nasilje. Ta projekt si prizadeva v novi luči prikazati demonizirano podobo in prekarnost upornikov, in sicer ne zgolj z razlaganjem razlogov za upor, ampak tudi prek povezave s poljem monumentalnih praks. Delo je tako poskus iskanja odgovora na vprašanje, kakšen bi bil videti spomenik tem uporom in kakšen bi bil njegov učinek. Gal Kirn in Niloufar Tajeri sta začela projekt razvijati v okviru stuttgartske Akademie Schloss Solitude, kjer sta opravljala rezidentstvo v letih 2015–16.


Misliti spomenik urbanim vstajam Thinking Monumental Strategies of (Sub)urban Riots 2016 Critical theory, urban, historical and political research, architecture, memory, intervention Monumental Strategies of (Sub)urban Riots focuses on the phenomenon of (sub)urban riots in the West that took place in London, Los Angeles and Paris in recent decades. These riots had a short durability, but rendered visible major aspects of everyday urban life for those living on the margins: economic deprivation, political exclusion, forms of racism, and police violence. This project wants to re-frame and re-articulate the demonized image and precarious existence of riots not only by understanding their deeper causes, but also by connecting them to the field of monumental practices and attempting to address the question what a dissensual monument to dissent might look like and what it could do. Gal Kirn and Niloufar Tajeri started developing this project as part of their work at the Akademie Schloss Solitude (Stuttgart), where they were residents in 2015–16.

Trgovski dom 2012 Keramični krožniki, tisk Leta 2009 sem izrezovala časopisne fotografije, na katerih so različne skupine ljudi. Iskala sem takšne, na katerih so neznani ljudje, ki so se znašli v izjemnih situacijah. Ljudje na slikah predstavljajo dogodke, ki so tako posebni, da smo o njih lahko brali. In čeprav so to pogosto tudi dogodki, ki so zaznamovali življenja teh oseb, njihovih imen ne bomo nikoli izvedeli. 2012 Ceramic plates, printing In 2009 I got into the habit of cutting out newspaper photos of various groups of people who found themselves in particularly exceptional circumstances. The people in the pictures represent events so far out of the ordinary that they found their way into the papers. Although these same events in many instances profoundly impacted the lives of the people in the pictures, we never learn their names.

Trgovski dom jer me se tiče 2016 Video 31. maja 1992 so v Prijedoru, mestu na severozahodu Bosne in Hercegovine, bosanskosrbske oblasti izdale odredbo, da morajo vsi nesrbski prebivalci svoja prebivališča označiti z belimi rjuhami in si na nadlahti nadeti belo prevezo, če želijo zapustiti svoje domove. To je bil začetek kampanje, ki je vodila do usmrtitev, koncentracijskih taborišč, množičnih posilstev in odstranitev več kot 94 % nesrbskega prebivalstva z ozemlja občine Prijedor. Kampanja z naslovom "Dan bele preveze" žrtvam množičnih pobojev z vsega sveta daje glas in opozarja na njihov boj za resnico, dostojanstvo in ohranitev spomina.

Mednarodni dan bele preveze International White Armband Day

2016 Video On May 31st 1992, the Bosnian Serb authorities in Prijedor, a town in north western Bosnia and Herzegovina, issued a decree for all non-Serbs to mark their houses with white sheets and wear a white armband if they were to leave their houses. This was the day of beginning of the campaign which resulted in executions, concentration camps, mass rapes and ultimately the removal of more than 94% of non-Serbs from the territory of the Prijedor municipality. The ‘White Armband Day’ campaign aims to give a voice to the victims of mass atrocities from around the world in their struggle for the truth, dignity and remembrance.

2015/2016 http://whereistito.tumblr.com/ "online" in "offline" kartografiranje geoglifov in identitet današnjih skupnosti Projekt se je rodil iz zamisli o kartografiranju napisa ''T I T O'' na pobočju bližnjega hriba. Te črke so vpisane na različnih mestih in geografskih terenih v večini držav nekdanje Jugoslavije. Cilj je ustvariti zbirko dejanskih koordinat teh spominskih obeležij, jih raziskati in preučiti njihov izvor, ozadje ter spremembe v obdobju zadnjih desetih let. Namen takšnega razstavljanja napisa TITO na različne načine, v obliki računalniške kode, v kiberprostoru, v obliki spomina, podobe, materiala, topografije itd. ni, da bi raziskovali globlje ozadje Titove zgodovinske osebnosti, temveč je to poskus raziskovanja, kako prebivalstvo gleda na zgodovino, kolektivni spomin in identiteto. Zahvala za pomoč, odgovore in vprašanja: Erika Thümmel, Daniela Amann, Jovana Mihajlović Trbovc, Martin Pogačar, Rene Rusjan, Lisa Smith, Peter Purg in Allan Siegel.


Digitalni kamni. TITO kot medijsko stanje Digital Stones. TITO as Media Condition 2015/2016 http://whereistito.tumblr.com/ online and offline mapping of geoglyphs and identity of nowadays communities The project emerges from the idea of mapping hillside inscriptions of 'T I T O', referring to the name of the ex-Yugoslav presidential figure. These letters are inscribed in several locations across different landscapes in most of the former Yugoslavian countries. The aim is to collect actual coordinates of these memorials, to research and question their origin, background and changes over the last 10 years. While dismantling TITO in various ways, as code, cyberspace, memory, picture, material, topography, etc., it is not about digging deep into Tito's iconic figure, but more about the people's approach to history, collective memory and identity.

21. decembra 2007, na dan odstranitve mejnih zapornic med Slovenijo in Italijo, je bila na mejnem prehodu na Erjavčevi ulici med Novo Gorico in Gorico izvedena prva spominodajalska akcija z naslovom Spovednica tihotapcev. V prostor, ki je bil namenjen pregledovanju, je bila postavljena kamera in prebivalci obeh Goric so bili vanj povabljeni, da spregovorijo o svojih spominih na mejo. Od tega zgodovinskega večera do danes se je zvrstilo pet akcij javnega zbiranja spomina, vsaka posvečena drugi temi. Zadnja v nizu je bila izvedena v prostorih železniške postaje, stavbi, ki simbolizira sočasnost različnih identitet mesta. Zbirala sem spomine in fotografije stavb, mimo katerih morda vsak dan hodimo, ne da bi vedeli za njihove usode. Dokumentarna zbirka Portreti stavb je rezultat te akcije in nadgrajuje spominski album mesta, ki ga prebivalci obeh Goric poklanjamo bodočim generacijam.

A camera was placed in the ex-checking room and the population of the two Goricas were invited to come in and speak about their memories of the border. Five such public campaigns have been carried out since that historic evening, each focusing on a different topic. The last in the series was organized in the railway station, a building symbolizing the simultaneous existence of different city identities.We were collecting stories and photographs of the buildings we might all walk by on a daily basis, without ever knowing their destinies. The resulting video collection titled Portraits of Buildings supplements the city’s memory book, which the inhabitants of the two cities offer as a gift to future generations.

Pozornost namenja uram na javnih mestih in odpira razpravo med prebivalci in delavci v Novi Gorici in Gorici o tem, ali je istost časa sploh mogoča: kako meja med Slovenijo in Italijo vpliva na zaznavo časa ob meji (hitrost, krivulja, odzvanjanje časa ...)? Ali vsako od obeh mest živi v svojem času? Ali si obe mesti delita isti čas? Preteklost, sedanjost, prihodnost ...? Kateri so najvidnejši primeri zastajanja in pospeševanja časa? Ali življenje na eni strani meje vpliva na zaznavo časa na drugi strani?

2016 Educational & production workshop and multimedia installation Sameness of Time explores idleness and potentiality of time on two sides of the border. It focuses on public clocks and raises discussions among the citizens and workers in Nova Gorica and Gorizia about the (im)possibility of the sameness of time: How does the border between Slovenia and Italy affect the perception of temporality of life on the border (its speed, trajectory, reverberance...)? Does each city live in its own time capsule? Or do they share the same time? The past, present, future…? Where are the delays or advancements of time most visible? Does life on one side of the border affect the perception of time on the other?

Postaja Topolove / Stazione di Topolò Topolò Station To ni festival in ne "potujoča razstava". To je mali-veliki laboratorij, ki združuje eksperiment s starodavno kulturo in silo okolja, ki vse to gosti. Vse, kar se tam zgodi, se udejani iz neposrednega stika s krajem, ki je glavni motor dogodkov – in ne njihov scenarist. Ti dogodki potekajo po travnikih, malih trgih, po ulicah in hišah v vasi; brez gledališč in brez urnikov, vendar po koordinatah, ki sledijo ritmu narave. V 23 letih so umetniki pustili številne sledi: namišljena pošta, veleposlaništva različnih držav, tudi veleposlaništvo izbrisanih, univerzalna pinakoteka umetnosti, Topolovski orkester, Inštitut za Topologijo, univerza, letališče, globalna delavnica zdravja, umetniška pot na Livek in še mnogo drugega. Moreno Miorelli in Donatella Ruttar še naprej dajeta življenje projektu, skupaj z društvom Topolò-Topolove. Kar nekaj umetnikov na letošnjem Pixxelpointu je tudi Topolonavtov.

This is not a festival, it is not a 'traveling show'. It is a small/large laboratory, which combines experimentation with ancient culture and the energy of the host environment. Everything that happens there emerges from direct contact with the site, which is the main motor driving the events, rather than a writer writing the script for them. These events occur in meadows, small squares, alleys and houses across the village; there are no theaters or schedules, everything simply follows nature’s course. Over the course of 23 years, the artists have left behind many traces: imaginary mail, embassies of various nations, including the embassy of the erased, the universal pinacotheca of art, the Topolò Orchestra, the Institute of Topology, the University, the airport, the global health workshop, the Livek Art Route – to name but a few. Moreno Miorelli and Donatella Ruttar continue to breathe life into the project in collaboration with the Topolò-Topoluove Association. Many artists from this year’s Pixxelpoint lineup are also Topolonauts.

SMO se uvršča med nove oblike tematskih in pokrajinskih muzejev, ki ne slonijo več na zbiranju predmetov, temveč na sami pripovedi. Zastavljen je kot aktiven, dinamičen, prijazen in spodbuden prostor, kjer se skozi značilne vidike krajevne kulture razvija pripoved o teh krajih. V tem prostoru se prepletata umetniško eksperimentiranje in razsežnost spomina, obiskovalcu ponuja interaktivna popotovanja in multimedialne freske krajine, ki je skupek ljudi in krajev, zgodb in spominov in ki vzbuja dražljaje in razmišljanja. Skozi pripoved prepoznavamo krajino, jo lahko poslušamo in ugotavljamo, kako je jezik povezovalec mnogih kulturnih variant, mikrokozmov, ki prekipevajo od zgodb. Muzej je zasnovala, načrtovala in koordinirala arhitektka Donatella Ruttar. Urejen je bil v Špetru (Videm) v okviru strateškega projekta JEZIKLINGUA, ki je financiran v okviru Programa čezmejnega sodelovanja Slovenija-Italija 2007–2013 iz sredstev Evropskega sklada za regionalni razvoj in nacionalnih sredstev.

SMO Slovensko multimedialno okno Finestra multimediale slovena SMO – Landscape and Narrative Museum

SMO is a new type of theme-based landscape museum, which shifts the focus away from merely collecting artifacts, and focuses instead on the narrative. Its concept is proactive, dynamic, it is a nice and friendly place which spins a tale of the local environment through characteristic features borrowed from the local cultural landscape. In this place, artistic experimentation and the dimension of memory become intertwined – it invites the visitor to embark on an interactive journey and explore the multimedia fresco of the landscape, which is an amalgamation of people and places, stories and memories creating a sensory experience and sparking reflection. By following the story, we learn about the landscape, we can listen to it and discover how language forms a link between many different cultural variants, microcosms which are bursting with narrative. The museum was conceived, designed and coordinated by architect Donatella Ruttar. It was set up in the town of Špeter (Udine) as part of the strategic project JEZIKLINGUA, financed through the Cross-Border Cooperation Programme Slovenia-Italy 2007–2013 using European Regional Development Fund and national funding schemes.

2015– A capella petje, audiovizualno, glasba v živo, audio instalacija, video instalacija, projekcija, film, splet, crossmedia, multi-platform, storytelling, molitev Sodelujoči: posamezniki ali skupine, ki pojejo v tehniki a cappella

Ostali sodelavci: Ali R. Taha (snemalec zvoka in arabsko-angleški prevajalec), prevajalci (perzijskoangleški, italijansko-angleški, nemško-angleški), Soham Goswami, Sandro Dokić in drugi študentje Akademije umetnosti Univerze v Novi Gorici (operater kamere, snemalec zvoka, montažer, prevajalci, socialna omrežja: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat; kartografiranje) 14pesmi je projekt pesmi, ki jih nosimo v sebi. Začel se je leta 2015 kot odgovor na humanitarno katastrofo v Evropi, ki je bila posledica zaprtih meja za begunce. Umetnica je začela zbirati pesmi ljudi, ki so Evropi predstavljali grožnjo. Da bi z njimi obudila spomin na človeške vrednote (zgodovino, znanje, izkušnje, kulturno dediščino itd.), ki jih vsak izmed nas nosi v sebi, in ustvarila medkulturni dialog med ljudmi, ki živijo v Evropi, in tistimi, ki sem prihajajo živet. Na festivalu se bo projekt 14pesmi predstavil v živo prvič. Vsi ljudje, ki pojejo, ne glede na starost, državljanstvo, jezik, vero in barvo kože, so dobrodošli, da pridejo in zapojejo svojo pesem – svojo obliko molitve za ljudi, ki so umrli na begu pred vojno in katerih pesmi so za vedno izgubljene. MI smo pesem.

It started in 2015 as a response to the European humanitarian disaster due to borders closing for refugees. The artist started collecting songs of people who were seen as a threat. To remind us of the human values (history, knowledge, experience, cultural heritage etc.) we carry within and to create an intercultural dialogue between people who live in Europe and those who are on their way to Europe. During the festival, the 14songs project will be performed live for the first time. All the singers, regardless of age, nationality, language, religion an colour, are welcome to come and sing their song - their version of a prayer for those who have lost their lives running from war and whose songs are forever lost. WE are the song.

2012 Film, 72' V sodelovanju z: Armin Salihović in Aigul Hakimova Gradbeni sektor, ki je v Sloveniji zaposloval preko 70.000 tujih delavcev, je v letih 2010–11 propadel in za seboj pustil dolgove, ustavljeno gradbeno dejavnost ter izkoriščene in neplačane delavce. Večina zaposlenih delavcev je izvirala iz prostora nekdanje skupne države. Medtem, ko je država nemo opazovala izkoriščane, podplačane, neplačane in ponižane delavce, se je s kopičenjem bogastva na eni strani, na drugi ravno tako kopičil gnev in odpor. Ker so zatajili pristojni državni organi, javna občila in širša javnost, je bila samoorganizacija delavcev neizbežna. Zahtevali so boljše pogoje za življenje, plačilo neizplačanih plač, prispevkov, enake možnosti in tako naprej. Armin, Aigul in Esad nas popeljejo skozi specifične zgodbe in področja dela (aktivizem in gradbeništvo), ki tako postanejo obče in univerzalne.

2012 Film, 72’ In collaboration with: Armin Salihović and Aigul Hakimova The Slovenian construction sector, which once employed over 70,000 foreign workers in the country, collapsed in 2010–11, leaving behind debts, devastation of the construction industry, and exploited and unpaid workers. Most of these workers came from former Yugoslavia. While the government watched in silence, observing the exploited, underpaid, unpaid and disgraced workers, the one-sided accumulation of wealth fueled outrage and resistance on the other side. As the authorities, the media and the general population failed to remedy the situation, the workers were forced to organize. They demanded better living conditions, payment of back wages, social contributions, equal opportunities etc. Armin, Aigul and Esad take us through these stories and specific fields of activity (activism and construction works), making them common and universal.

2015/2016 Kratke zgodbe in risbe Serija zgodb in ilustracij. Widad Tamimi je kot prostovoljka v begunskih centrih pomagala združevati družine, ki so jih v policijskih postopkih ob prečkanju meje ločili, sama pa je kot pisateljica zapisovala njihove zgodbe. Ker s fotografskim aparatom ni želela posegati v človeško dostojanstvo, je povabila likovno umetnico Vesno Bukovec, da jih opremi s svojimi risbami. Zgodbe in risbe so objavljene v časopisu Delo. Namen njunega sodelovanja je pokazati in približati človeško stisko ljudi na begunski poti, ki poteka tudi čez našo državo, in se na tak način spopasti z negativno podobo in strahom pred tujci, ki se v družbi širi preko politike, medijev in spleta.

As a volunteer working in refugee centers, Widad Tamimi was involved in helping to bring together the families separated from each other in police procedures while crossing borders. She would later write down their stories. Not wanting to compromise their dignity using a camera, she invited visual artist Vesna Bukovec to provide illustrations. The stories and illustrations were published in the Delo newspaper. The aim of their collaboration is to bring attention to the suffering these people are experiencing along the refugee route which leads through our country Slovenia as a way of facing the negative image and fear of strangers being spread across society through politicians, the media and the internet.

Tunel pod Kostanjevico (Nova Gorica) 2016 Instalacija, ki jo zaznamuje lokacija Nekoč je v prelepem kraju živel deček, ki je imel rad svojo družino in prijatelje, a nekega dne mu je oče povedal, da se morajo odseliti. Deček je bil sprva malce otožen, a se je kmalu navdušil nad potjo, saj se je veselil vseh novih prijateljev, ki jih bo spoznal v novem kraju. Njegova pot se je začela s plovbo v majhnem čolnu z veliko ljudmi, s katerim je plul čez širno morje. Bilo je temno in dečka je bilo zelo strah. "Vse bo še dobro," ga je miril oče, a ravno takrat se je zgodila nesreča in otrok žal nikoli ni prispel tja, kamor so bili namenjeni. Namesto tega se je deček znašel nekje drugje, v kraju, ki je bil še veliko lepši in prijaznejši od tistega, ki mu je bil obljubljen. Tam se zdaj vse mile dni igra in poležava na oblakih kot angelček.

TIR Mostovna 2016 Site-specific installation Once upon a time, there was a little kid who lived in a beautiful place. He loved living there with his family and all his friends, but dad said that they had to move. The kid was a bit sad, but eventually grew excited about the trip and the new place he was going to and all the the new friends he was going to meet. The journey started through a big sea in a small boat crowded with people, it was dark and scary for the kid. 'It’s all going to be alright,' dad said, but then there was an accident on the boat.

2016 Pesniška zbirka Poezija živi znotraj sveta, izvira iz njega in je z njim v živem, pristnem stiku. Pisanje poezije zahteva svobodnega duha. Že skoraj eno leto se slednji, kot številna divjad, zaletava v "tehnično oviro" na slovenski meji. Živeti v ograjeni državi in hkrati govoriti o kulturi, kamor spada poezija, je do skrajnosti paradoksalno. Ponovno se torej zahvaljujem za Jenkovo nagrado svoji poeziji, sprejemam jo, a v isti sapi jasno pravim: gospod predsednik vlade – odstranite to žico. Takoj. Iz zahvalnega govora nagrajenke Anje Golob ob razglasitvi Jenkove nagrade 2016, Kranj, 28. oktobra 2016. www.anjagolob.org

Didaskalije k dihanju Stage-directions to Breathing 2016 Poetry collection Poetry resides within the world, it originates from it and maintains with it a genuine, vibrant contact. Writing poetry requires a free spirit. For almost a year now, the latter, like so much wildlife, has been running headfirst into the 'technical barrier' on the Slovenian national border. To speak of culture, which poetry is a part of, while living in a fenced-in state is paradoxical in the extreme. I am grateful for the Jenko Award in recognition of my poetry, and I accept it, but at the same time I want to send a clear message: Mr Prime Minister, take down the barbed wire. Now. Excerpt from the speech of Anja Golob at the 2016 Jenko Award ceremony, Kranj, 28 October 2016. www.anjagolob.org

2015 Drama, gledališka predstava Večina prizorov v predstavi izhaja iz resničnih situacij, ki sta jih avtorici doživeli s svojima babicama. Osnovno polje zanimanja se je razvilo iz sveta v katerega sta dementni osebi počasi odhajali. Kljub temu, da sta izgubljali stik s svetom, ki ga mi poznamo, sta se počasi povezovali z novo realnostjo, ki pa je našemu razumu nedostopna. Potek bolezni sproža različna interpretacijska vprašanja, ki smo jih ujeli v interaktivno videoscenografijo, ki se odziva na njene misli in gibe. Po dokumentaristični metodi smo izhajali iz dnevnikov babic in jih soočili z medicinskim znanjem o tej bolezni in zgodbo tako umestili v širši družbeni kontekst naraščajočega števila starejših pri nas.

2015 Drama, theatre play Most of the acts featured in the the play are based on real-life experiences the artists had with their respective grandmothers. The underlying storyline is based on the world into which the individuals suffering from dementia were slowly transitioning. Despite losing touch with the world as we understand it, they were slowly transcending into a new reality, one which lies beyond our understanding. The progression of the disease sparks different questions of interpretations, captured in an interactive video scenography, which responds to her thoughts and motions. Following the documentary method, we based the project on the grandmothers’ journals and juxtaposed them with the medical knowledge about the disease, placing the story in the broader social context of the ageing Slovenian population.

2014 Fotografija Tri ženske je avtoričino diplomsko delo na Akademiji umetnosti Univerze v Novi Gorici. V njem se ukvarja z odnosi žensk v družini s sociološkega, psihološkega, predvsem pa z osebnega vidika. Odkriva, kako se odnosi med njimi skozi čas spreminjajo, hkrati pa govori o tem, kako pomembne so vezi za razvoj, poudarja kontrast in pomembnost ločitve od matere ter izoblikovanja v individuum. Delo je izjemno osebno, avtorica razkriva sebe in svoje korenine. Vpraša se, kdo je, in odgovor najde v "mi". V delu razkrije in (tudi dobesedno) sleče sebe in svoji prednici. One so korenine, brez olepševanja. Z vračanjem h koreninam in z njihovim ozaveščanjem stojimo trdneje, a se hkrati zavedamo, da se jih preveč trdno tudi ne smemo oklepati.


Tri ženske Three Women

2014 Photography Three women is the author’s graduation paper at the University of Nova Gorica School of Arts. It deals with the relationships of women in the family from the sociological, psychological and, most of all, personal perspective. It explores how these relationships change over time, while speaking about how important these ties are to one’s development, it emphasizes the contrast and importance of separation from the mother, and developing into an independent individual. The work is exceptionally intimate, as the author lays herself and her roots bare. She questions her identity and finds the answer in the concept of 'we’. In her work, she (literally) exposes herself and her two female ancestors. They are her roots, without beautification. By revisiting one’s roots and acknowledging them, we can stand firmer – but at the same time one knows one should not hold on to them too tightly.

2016 Video instalacija, eksperimentalni film, avtorska poezija Kot umetnica, ki poleg umetniških projektov za svoje preživetje deluje tudi v televizijski produkciji, se zaveda izjemne moči manipulacije, ki jo ima televizijski medij. V svojem opazovanju industrije in uporabnikov opaža, da ljudje čedalje manj reagirajo na različne tragične novice, saj dojemajo svet s televizijskih ekranov kot neko drugo resničnost. Delo (Pod)zavest je novejše produkcije in ga avtorica posveča vsem, ki so v zadnjih mesecih izgubili življenja zaradi takšnih in drugačnih dogodkov, ki smo jih lahko spremljali v medijih – v upanju, da se zavestno osredotočimo na sedanjost in s pomočjo preteklih izkušenj izbiramo boljše korake, ki bodo vodili v boljšo skupno prihodnost vseh nas.

2016 Video installation, experimental film, original poetry As an artist who, in addition to creating artistic projects, also makes a living in television production, is aware of the powerful manipulation potential of the TV medium. In her observation of the industry and the users, she is noticing that people are becoming more and more jaded to various reports of tragedies due to the fact that they perceive the world of television as a separate reality. The work (Sub)conscious is a recent production dedicated to all those who lost their lives in recent months as a result of various events we followed through the media – hoping that this will allow us to consciously focus on the present and make better choices based on past experiences, so as to shape a better future for us all.

2016 Interaktivna instalacija Pojej me (Slovenija) je instalacija, sestavljena iz stotin knjig z zelenkastimi platnicami, ki so jih prispevali Slovenci. Pojej me je besedna zveza, izposojena iz knjižnega dela "Alica v čudežni deželi", v katerem je Alica našla kolač, na katerem je bil z ribezom izpisan napis Pojej me. Odločila se je, da ga bo pojedla in se znašla v vrtu. Četudi instalacija Pojej me ni izpisana z ribezom, pa z razporeditvijo rabljenih knjig in predstavljenih informacij zbuja skušnjavo "konzumiranja". Pojej me služi kot knjižnica: zbirka informacij za vsakodnevno uporabo, pri čemer knjige, namesto običajne klasifikacije, razporeja po barvah. Tako publiko izzove in spremeni njihovo izkušnjo, hkrati pa njihovo pozornost usmeri na vprašanje, kako so informacije posredovane uporabnikom.

2016 Interactive installation

Pojej me (Nova Gorica, Slovenija) Eat Me (NG, Slovenia)

Eat Me (Slovenia) is an installation consisting of hundreds of used greenish-cover books collected from the public of Slovenia. The title Eat Me is a phrase adopted from Alice in Wonderland, where Alice found a very small cake with the words Eat Me beautifully arranged in currants. She decided to eat it so that she could enter the garden. Though not written in currants, the installation Eat Me proposes such a temptation of ‘consuming’ through the arrangement of used books and the display of information. Eat Me performs the fundamental function of a library: a collection of information for common use, but classifies the books with color instead of usual classification system, challenging the audience’s public library experience and highlighting the issue of how information is disseminated.

2016 Izrezi, premični grafiti, instalacija Izrezane figure ohranjajo format risbe, ki ni več omejena z robovi papirja, ampak prosto zaplava skozi galerijski prostor oziroma dobi ozadje ko je postavljena na prostem. Tako nastane celota, umetniško delo, gesta, ki reagira na okolje, v katero je umeščena. Izrezana figura se v mestu znajde v novih situacijah, postavljena je v okolje, kjer izziva in izzove neustaljen odziv med ljudmi, med nami. V mestnem/industrijskem okolju se spremeni njen naboj, ki ga sicer nosi kot muzejski artefakt. Ista podoba je v novem kontekstu videna drugače in umeščena v urbani prostor začne delovati kot grafit.

Izrezi Cutouts 2016 Cutouts, movable graffiti, installation The cut-out figures retain their form of a drawing that is no longer limited by the edges of paper, simply floating in the gallery space and gaining a new background when placed outdoors. Thus, an entity is created, a piece of art, a gesture that reacts to the environment into which it is placed. The cut-out figure finds itself in the city in new situations, integrated in a setting where it provokes and evokes an unsettling reaction among people, among us. In the urban / industrial setting, its role as a museum artefact changes. The same image in a new situation is regarded differently, integrated into an urban landscape it begins to function as a type of graffiti.

90 Metod Blejec 2016 Kartografiranje na podlagi angažiranih dejanj Projekt We-MAP-IN-Go želi sodelujoče spodbuditi k aktivnemu raziskovanju sestrskih mest Nova Gorica in Gorica. S pomočjo brezplačnega zemljevida – ta predlaga tudi več tematsko obarvanih poti in pomembnejših znamenitosti v mestu (oz. obeh mestih) – ta psihogeografski projekt sodelujoče vabi na sprehod po označenih poteh, spodbuja pa jih tudi k aktivnemu ustvarjanju novih. Projekt spodbuja raziskovanje urbanega okolja, s katerim sodelujoči popeljejo Pixxelpointove teme, pogovore, vprašanja in druge vidike na sprehod. Kartografiranje se lahko izvaja bodisi samostojno v okviru lastnega miselnega procesa, ali v družbi, v participativnem uporabniškem načinu Hodi+Govori (Walk&Talk). 2016 Action-based engaged mapping We-MAP-IN-Go project is designed to inspire participants in an action-based engaging process of exploring the twin-towns of Nova Gorica and Gorizia. With the help of a free map — including several proposed routes on topics and key locations in town(s) — the psycho-geographic project invites participants to walk through marked routes and/or actively create their own. The project stimulates urban exploration while taking Pixxelpoint’s topics, conversations, concerns, etc. out for a walk. Mapping can be partaken individually through one’s own thought process or in company in a participatory Walk&Talk mode.
