PREDMET PARA-KURATOR

Igor Štromajer O procesu Medijske, post-medijske, digitalne, post-digitalne, internetne, postinternetne, performerje in post-performerje, analogne in post-analogne umetnice in umetnike iz Slovenije in tujine sem povabil, da imenujejo, delegirajo, izberejo predmet, ki jih bo umetniško zastopal na festivalu Pixxelpoint 2015. Umetnic in umetnikov nisem spraševal, zakaj so si izbrali nek določen predmet, z njimi se nisem pogajal o primernosti ali neprimernosti predmeta, o skladnosti s konceptom letošnjega festivala, temveč sem vsako njihovo izbiro in imenovanje sprejel. Predmete, ki so jih imenovali, smo nato sodelavci festivala iskali v Novi Gorici in njeni bližnji ali daljni okolici. Nekatere smo našli za vogalom, takorekoč doma, in jih je bilo enostavno locirati, po druge smo morali zelo daleč in se zelo potruditi, da so prišli na festival. Z nekaterimi najdenimi predmeti smo se zelo približali željam umetnic in umetnikov, nekatere smo tudi pripravili skupaj z njimi, spet druge smo morali šele sestaviti, izdelati, si jih izposoditi, pri tretjih pa nismo prišli povsem blizu izvornemu naročilu, a smo se mu približali, kolikor je bilo to v danih okoliščinah le mogoče. Rezultat tega dolgotrajnega, napornega, intenzivnega, a inspirativnega procesa, so objekti, razstavljeni v okviru festivala in festivalski dogodki. Ti predmeti zdaj predstavljajo sodelujoče na letošnjem festivalu, so njihovo avtorsko umetniško delo, pod katerega so podpisani, čeprav večina umetnic in umetnikov svojega predmeta ni izdelala sama, ga ne bo in ga ni videla pred začetkom festivala in razstave, se ga ni in ne bo prej dotaknila. Ko ga bodo na otvoritvi festivala in razstave videli, se ga bodo dotaknili, bo že prepozno. Tisti, ki se festivala ne morejo osebno udeležiti, pa svojih predmetov, svojih umetniških del, ne bodo videli nikdar.

O predmetih Ti predmeti, te stvari, so ali niso umetnost, o tem se kot para-kurator letošnje, že 16. izdaje festivala medijskih umetnosti pravzaprav ne sprašujem, me ne zanima. Če so, so dobrodošli, če niso, mi je vseeno. Edino, kar sem se v času priprav na festival od njih naučil, vse, kar so mi povedali, je: Sami proizvajajte svojo umetnost. Ne pričakujte, da jo bomo mi namesto vas. Kot ljudi ne moremo in ne smemo soditi po barvi kože, nacionalnosti, videzu, znesku na bančnem računu in spolni usmerjenosti, tako tudi predmetov ne smemo in ne moremo razvrščati in ocenjevati po kriteriju ali so umetnost ali niso. Koga to briga! Kdo si lahko vzame pravico, da sodi o tem? Na njih gledam kot na povsem


avtonomne objekte, priznavam jim vse objektove pravice, jih brezpogojno spoštujem, brez razloga neizmerno ljubim in vanje ne posegam. Ne sprašujem se, kaj pomenijo, o čem govorijo. Zgolj so. Lahko jih sicer opazujem, a to jih pravzaprav v ničemer ne zadeva. Tudi njih, predmetov, ničesar ne sprašujem, od njih ničesar ne pričakujem, niti ničesar nočem. Jih ne presojam, ne interpretiram. Zavedam se, da – ko so enkrat izdelani – bivajo samostojno, neodvisno od človeka, celo več, neodvisno od človeštva, in da so verjetno najbolj popolni takrat, kadar niso v interakciji z ljudmi. Ne morem vedeti zagotovo, a letošnji festival in razstava verjetno najbolj pravilno delujeta takrat, kadar ni obiskovalcev, nas, ljudi, morda ponoči, ko zapremo festivalska prizorišča, ko nihče ničesar ne gleda, ko ljudje hiberniramo in nam, končno, ni več mar. Stvari niso podrejene ljudem, umetnikom, niso zgolj njihovo izrazno sredstvo ali orodje, temveč postanejo, kadar jih razumemo onkraj te njihove bazične funkcije, “projekcijske površine za semantične konstrukcije,” kot pravi teoretičarka Martina Ruhsam, in poudarja, da če so bili predmeti, ne-človeške entitete, v tradicionalnih oblikah umetnosti podrejene ekspresivnosti umetnika, so lahko v neantropocentničnem razumevanju sveta in umetnosti povsem samostojne. Da delovanje ni privilegij človeka, nakazujejo tudi predmetno usmerjena ontologija, novi materializem in spekulativni materializem, četudi jih jemljemo strogo kritično. Ali kot pravi francoski pisatelj in filozof Tristan Garcia, ljudje, v primerjavi s predmeti in stvarmi, niso izjema. Stvar je vse, ne glede na to, kako velika ali majhna, kako resnična ali napačna, kako človeška ali nečloveška je. Ker se stvar vedno skriva v nečem, kar ni ona sama, nikoli ne more biti to, kar je, razmišlja Martina Ruhsam in citira Garcio: “… in ravno lastno je tisto, kar moramo opustiti, tako da lahko obstaja nekaj in svet. Nič ni znotraj samega sebe. Vse je zunaj sebe. Ne glede na to, kaj nekaj je, je to nekaj drugega od samega sebe. Ohranja se razlika med tem, kar je v stvari in tem, kar stvar sama je.”

O festivalu Festival tudi letos sodeluje z Visoko šolo za umetnost Univerze v Novi Gorici in društvom Lucide iz Gorice. Predstavljamo 57 umetnic in umetnikov, vabimo na razstavo v treh galerijskih prostorih – v Mestno galerijo Nova Gorica, na Visoko šolo za umetnost Univerze v Novi Gorici in v Trgovski dom v Gorici, na predavanja, okrogle mize, pogovore z umetnicami in umetniki, na spletne in galerijske performanse, na delavnice ter javna vodstva. Skupaj in povsem enakopravno predstavljamo tako uveljavljene vrhunske umetnice in umetnike z najvišjimi mednarodnimi referencami, študentke in študente, ki pogumno vstopajo v svet umetnosti ter najzanimivejše umetniške iniciative, ki iščejo svoj prostor v sodobnem svetu. V šestnajstih letih delovanja se je festival spreminjal. Bil je festival digitalnih, pa interaktivnih, računalniških, nato novomedijskih umetnosti, potem spet samo medijskih umetnosti, lani celo festival neumetnosti, letošnja izdaja pa že nakazuje njegovo morebitno prihodnost, ki je tudi moja skromna želja, da bi postal zgolj festival umetnosti. Sodobne, provokativne, drugačne. Sam se po dvoletnem para-kuratorskem sodelovanju s festivalom umikam, zadovoljen s prikazanim in doseženim, a hkrati upajoč, da bodo prihodnje


kuratorke in kuratorji še bolj radikalno zarezali v tkivo sodobne umetnosti in še močneje premaknili meje festivala in umetnosti, ki jo ta gosti in predstavlja. V času, ko živimo v tako rekoč sovražnem odnosu do umetnosti in njene vloge v sodobni družbi, je to še posebej pomembno. Festival ima odlično, profesionalno ekipo Kulturnega doma Nova Gorica in njegove Mestne galerije, je dobro vpet v lokalno in čezmejno okolje in ima zdaj že zavidljive mednarodne reference.

Dobrodošli! Dobroodšli! Objekte vam na festivalu in razstavi predstavljamo forenzično: opazujte jih, do njih se spoštljivo vedite in jim nikakor ne zaupajte. Vstopate v avtonomni svet stvari, zato, to že veste, opustite vsakršno upanje.

OBJECT PARA-CURATOR

Igor Štromajer About the process Media, post-media, digital, post-digital, internet, post-internet, performers and post-performers, analog and post-analog artists from Slovenia and abroad were invited to name, delegate, select the object to represent them artistically at the Pixxelpoint 2015 festival. I did not ask the artist why they chose a particular object, I did not negotiate with them on whether or not an object was appropriate or in line with the concept of this year’s festival, I simply accepted their choice and designation. The objects they named were then sought in the close vicinity or far away from the town of Nova Gorica. Some were found around the corner, practically at home, and were easy to find. Others came from far away, and we had to make great efforts to bring them to the festival. Some of the objects we found were very close to the artists’ wishes, some were prepared in collaboration with them, others had to be assembled, manufactured or borrowed, and in some cases we were never able to come close to the original order, but we came as close as possible under the circumstances. The result of this painstaking, taxing, intense but inspirational process are the objects featured in the festival and festival events. These objects now represent the contributing artists of this year’s festival as their artistic contributions bearing their name, even though most of the artists did not create their objects themselves, they have never seen them, nor will they ever see or touch them before the beginning of the festival. When they see and touch it at the festival opening and exhibition, it will already be too late. Those artists who are unable to attend the festival will never see their artistic work.


About the objects These objects, these things, may or may not be art – I do not think about that as the para-curator of this year’s 16th edition of the media art festival, nor do I care. If they are, they’re welcome. If not, I don’t care. The only thing I learned from them while preparing for the festival, all they told me, was: Make your own art. Do not expect us to do it for you. Just as we cannot and should not judge people by the color of their skin, nationality, appearance, bank account balance and sexual orientation, so, too, should we not categorize objects according to the criterion of whether or not they are art. Who cares! Who has the right to judge? I see them as autonomous objects, I recognize all of their object rights, I unconditionally respect them, love them endlessly and unconditionally, and I do not interfere with their existence. I do not ask myself about what they mean, or what story they are trying to tell us. They just are. I can only observe them, but this does not affect them in any way. I don’t ask them, the objects, anything, either. I have no expectations from them, I don’t want anything from them. I do not judge them or interpret them. I recognize that - once they are made - they exist autonomously, independently from man, or even mankind, and that they are probably the most perfect when they do not interact with people. I cannot know for certain, but this year’s festival and exhibition probably work best when there are no visitors, no us, no people, perhaps at night, when we close down the festival venues, when nobody’s watching, when we, the people, hibernate and finally cease to care. Things are not subordinated to people, artists, they are more than just a device of expression or a tool, once we understand them beyond their basic function, they become a “surface for semantic projection”, to quote the theoretician Martina Ruhsam, who points out that if objects, nonhuman entities in the traditional forms of art, were once subordinated to the artist’s expression, they can exist entirely autonomously in a non-anthropocentric conception of the world. The fact that agency is not a human privilege is also suggested by object-oriented ontology, new materialism and speculative realism, even though we regard them strictly from a critical standpoint. Or in the words of French writer and philosopher Tristan Garcia, people, compared to objects and things, are not an exception. A thing is everything, now matter how big or small, how true or wrong, how human or nonhuman it may be. As the thing is always in something other than itself, it can never be itself, argues Martina Ruhsam, quoting Garcia: “… the self is precisely what we must abandon here, so that there is something and a world. Nothing is in itself. Everything is outside itself. No-matter-what is something, is in something other than itself. A difference is maintained between that which is in the thing and that in which the thing is.”

About the festival This year’s festival continues the collaboration with the School of Art of the University of Nova Gorica and the Gorizia-based Lucide. With 57 contributing artists, we invite you to an exhibition taking place in three venues - Nova Gorica City Gallery, Nova Gorica School of Art and the Trgovski dom Gallery in Gorizia. You are invited to attend lectures, round-table discussions, discussions with artists, online and gallery performances, workshops and public events. Alongside each other equally, we present both established artists with impressive international


references and art students bravely entering the world of art, and the most fascinating artistic initiatives looking for their place under the sun in the contemporary world. The festival has undergone a metamorphosis over the sixteen years of its existence. Initially a digital arts festival, then an interactive arts festival, followed by new-media festival, then going back to being a media festival, to even being a festival of non-art last year. This year’s edition hints at its possible future, to become simply an arts festival, which is my humble wish. A festival of contemporary, provocative, alternative art. After two years of para-curating the festival, I am leaving the festival with a sense of pleasure and achievement, yet hoping that future curators will take an even more radical cut into the flesh of contemporary art, and shake the boundaries of the festival and of the art it hosts and represents. This is particularly important at a time like today’s, a time of hostility towards art and its role in contemporary society. The festival has the support of the exceptional team of the Nova Gorica Cultural Center and its City Gallery. It has strong ties to the local and trans-border environment and even now has impressive international references.

Welcome! Welgone! At this festival, we show you the objects forensically: observe them, be respectful towards them, and never trust them. You are entering the autonomous world of things, so, as you are aware, abandon all hope.

Upor skozi čas Slovenija, 2015 predmet

Ko gre za upor, se je vredno spraševati: ali vemo, kaj je namen upora? Kako se upor spreminja skozi čas? Zakaj so upori vse manjši? In kako s smiselnim povezovanjem uporov doseči pravo napetost? UMETNIK / UMETNICA

Ana Čigon (1982) je na ljubljanski Akademiji za likovno umetnost in oblikovanje zaključila dodiplomski študij slikarstva in podiplomski študij videa. Končala je tudi magistrski študij Interface Cultures na Universtität für künstlerische und industrielle Gestaltung Linz v Avstriji. Deluje pretežno na področju videa, performansa in novih medijev. V svojih zadnjih umetniških projektih se ukvarja s feminističnimi tematikami, predvsem z vprašanjem premajhne zastopanosti umetnic in s pomenom problematiziranja vzorcev zgodovinjenja umetnosti. — www.anacigon.si

Video kartica (preusmerjeno z gesla Grafična kartica) - Ne zamenjujte z geslom Grafična procesna enota Nemčija, 2015 predmet

Video kartica (tudi video adapter, grafična plošča, grafični adapter ali slikovni predpomnilnik ter razširitvena kartica, ki generira serijo izhodnih slik in jih pošilja na zaslon (npr. računalniški monitor). Pogosto se te kartice oglašujejo kot diskretne ali namenske grafične kartice, pri čemer se poudarja razlika med takšnimi in integriranimi grafičnimi karticami. Grafična procesna enota (GPU) je specializirano elektronsko vezje, namenjeno hitri obdelavi in spreminjanju pomnilnika z namenom hitrejšega generiranja slik v grafičnem predpomnilniku, ki se nato prikazujejo na zaslonu. GPU-ji se uporabljajo v vgrajenih sistemih, mobilnih telefonih, osebnih računalnikih, delovnih postajah in igralnih konzolah. Sodobni GPU-ji zelo učinkovito obdelujejo računalniško grafiko in slike, njihova paralelna struktura pa omogoča učinkovitejšo obdelavo algoritmov, če jih primerjamo s centralnimi procesnimi enotami za splošno rabo, saj obdelava velikih paketov vizualnih podatkov poteka vzporedno. V osebnem računalniku je lahko GPU vgrajen v video kartico ali v matično ploščo. UMETNIK / UMETNICA

Aram Bartholl ustvarja v polju, kjer se prepletajo internet, kultura in resničnost. Te raznolike komunikacijske poti dandanes razumemo kot


samoumevne – a kako vplivajo na nas? Po paradigmi sprememb v preučevanju medijev se Bartholl ne sprašuje le o tem, kako človek uporablja medije, ampak ga zanima tudi, kako mediji vplivajo na človeka. Napetost med javnim in zasebnim, online in offline svet, zagledanost v tehnologijo in vsakdanje življenje - okrog tega se vrti njegovo ustvarjalno delo. Pri svojih javnih posegih in instalacijah Bartholl ugotavlja, kateri deli digitalnega sveta segajo nazaj v svet resničnosti - in kako. Aram Bartholl je član kolektiva internetnih umetnikov Free, Art & Technology Lab - F.A.T. Lab. V njegovih delih igrajo pomembno vlogo politika interneta, gibanje »naredi si sam« in razvoj interneta na splošno.

Video card (Redirected from Graphics card) - Not to be confused with Graphics processing unit. Germany, 2015 object

A video card (also called a video adapter, display card, graphics card, graphics board, display adapter, graphics adapter or frame buffer is an expansion card which generates a feed of output images to a display (such as a computer monitor). Frequently, these are advertised as discrete or dedicated graphics cards, emphasizing the distinction between these and integrated graphics. A graphics processing unit (GPU) is a specialized electronic circuit designed to rapidly manipulate and alter memory to accelerate the creation of images in a frame buffer intended for output to a display. GPUs are used in embedded systems, mobile phones, personal computers, workstations, and game consoles. Modern GPUs are very efficient at manipulating computer graphics and image processing, and their highly parallel structure makes them more effective than general-purpose CPUs for algorithms where processing of large blocks of visual data is done in parallel. In a personal computer, a GPU can be present on a video card, or it can be embedded on the motherboard. artist

Aram Bartholl’s work creates an interplay between internet, culture and reality. The versatile communication channels are taken for granted these days, but how do they influence us? According to the paradigm change of media research Bartholl not just asks what man is doing with the media, but what media does with man. The tension between public and private, online and offline, technology infatuation and everyday life creates the core of his producing. In public interventions and public installations Bartholl examines which and how parts of the digital world can reach back into reality. Aram Bartholl is a member of the Internet based artist group Free, Art & Technology Lab - F.A.T. Lab. Net politics, the DIY movement and the Internet development in general do play an important role in his work. Beside numerous lectures, workshops and performances he exhibited at MoMA Museum of Modern Art NY, The Pace Gallery NY and Hayward Gallery London .

570–590 nm / Rumeni fotoaparat (1985) Slovenija, 2015 object

Obstajajo povezava, valovna dolžina in privlačnost. Obstajajo barva, svetloba in oblika. In potem obstajajo odnosi, spone in vezi. Rumeni fotoaparat združuje vse to. Njegova zgodba pripoveduje o prijetnem pomladnem popoldnevu tistega leta, ko je bil izdelan, o določenem geopolitičnem trenutku, ko je zavel svež veter in prinesel svetle, samozavestne in pogumne čase, o nekakšnih mitoloških vratih, ki vodijo v vse jutrišnje prihodnosti. Razpotje. Darilo, obremenjeno s težo neizrečenih obljub, je postalo sredstvo za ovekovečenje predmetov, ki živijo v svetu ljudi. Kamni, drevesa, oblaki. Rekonstruirana prisotnost fotoaparata v


razstavi simbolično, a brezplodno ponavlja valovno dolžino, ki je sam ni zmožen poustvariti. Služi le kot sredstvo za priklic spomina in biografski podatek o umetnici. Morda je Rumeni fotoaparat, tako kot tudi Rumena podmornica in Rumena opečnata cesta, le orodje za popotovanje skozi prostor in čas – preko širjave spominov in domišljije, v globine prikritega jaza in onkraj njega, v temačne globine neznanega – mimo konstruktov in definiciji, ki nas želijo vezati nase.

570–590 nm / The Yellow Camera (1985) Slovenia, 2015 object

There is connection, wavelength and attraction. There is colour, light and form. And then there are relations, bonds and ties. The yellow camera is all of those things. Its story talks of a springtime afternoon in the year of its production, a certain geopolitical moment that brought wind of bright, brash and bold times, a mythical doorway to all of the future’s tomorrows. A turning point. The gift that came accompanied by the heaviness of unspoken promise became a way to record the objects that inhabit the world of people. The stones, the trees, the clouds. The camera’s reconstructed existence in the exhibition symbolically but fruitlessly reiterates a wavelength it cannot reproduce. It merely reawakens a memory and a biographic detail of the artist as background information. Perhaps the Yellow Camera, just like the Yellow Submarine and the Yellow Brick Road, is a vehicle to travel in space and time – through the vast planes of memory and the imagination, to the depths of the hidden self and beyond, to the dark lands of the unknown, surpassing the constructs and definitions that wish to bind. artist

Arven Šakti Kralj Szomi (1974) studied at Leeds College of Art and Design and completed her BA in Fine Art, Studio Practice and Contemporary Critical Theory at Goldsmiths’ College University of London, followed by an MA in Video and Photography at the Ljubljana Academy of Fine Arts and Design. Her work is concerned with the language of the image, which she largely investigates through photographic processes, inserting into her work a seemingly innate and intimate narrative, and a multiplicity of tales that


can be read on many levels. Many of Kralj’s works examine objects and the stories that they attempt to recount, modes of representation and display, and the verisimilitude of photographs. Recent projects have included a large-scale overview of object-based photographic works in Slovenia, and a series focused on children exploring the interrelation of the intimate and the public. She is an accredited artist by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia and regularly exhibits at home and abroad. podoba / image

Čudo (stvar brez imena) Slovenija, 2015 predmet

Iz dveh med seboj spojenih motoriziranih premičnih kosov nastane kombinirana avtonomna stvar, katere mehanična sestava sugerira načine gibanja in s tem tudi identiteto in celo poimenovanje. Objekt sodi v serijo prenapetih struktur, kot nadgradnja zadnje tovrstne serije iz leta 2014, ki se je takrat popularno imenovala Kača. Vse prenapete strukture izvajajo gibanje, ki temelji na principu torzijsko zvijajočih se trakov, kjer se


zvijanje trakov kombinira v različne premike celote. Stvari imajo ime, kadar so uporabne in uporabljane. Stvari trdovratno ohranjajo svoje ime, kadar so prepoznavne po svoji nekdanji funkciji – tudi če so kasnejšem trenutku predstavljene v drugem kontekstu – kot na primer v galeriji. Odtočna cev je še vedno odtočna cev, WC školjka je še vedno WC školjka. To seveda ne pomeni, da ti predmeti ne spodbudijo zanimivih razmislekov, kadar se pokaže absurdno, paradoksalno, neobičajno ali kako drugače presenetljivo. Kot po navadi je čudenje motiv za razmislek, sicer tega ni. UMETNIK / UMETNICA

A Thing of Wonder (with no name) Slovenia, 2015 object

Two conjoined, motorized, movable pieces create an autonomous construct whose mechanical design proposes ways of locomotion and thereby the identity and even its name. The object is part of a series of high-tension structures and is an upgrade of a similar project from 2014, popularly named The Snake. All these high-tension structures create movement based on the principle of torque generated by twisted bands, where the twisting of the bands combines into various movements of the construct as a whole. These things have names, when useful and used. The things keep their name when they are recognizable by their former function – even if they are later put in a different context. Such as, for example, a gallery. The drainpipe is still a drainpipe, the toilet bowl is still a toilet bowl. Of course, they still create interesting interpretations when this turns out to be absurd, paradoxical, unusual, or otherwise surprising. As usual, the sense of wonder provides the motive for reflection, otherwise there can be no reflection. artist

Borut Savski, born in Ljubljana in 1960, is an intermedia artist who places great emphasis on sound – the combination of technical solutions for unorthodox instruments and autonomous audiovisual structures/ sculptures. The sound experiments in the Radio Študent studio in Ljubljana since 1994. In 1999, he presented the first cybernetic sound installation “Sound Biotope” in the Kapelica gallery in Ljubljana. His essay “Sound”


as a metaphor which encompasses the author’s core preoccupations. Later, he continued developing independent concepts and instruments and collaborations with other artists. In the period from 2006 to 2010, the worked on writing the music for three dance performances by Mateja BuÄ?ar. In 2006, he co-organized the Intermediate Spaces festival with KUD Trivia. In 2007 he co-founded the intermedia initative Circulation 2. Collaboration on the project Etnobanda. After 2010, he collaborated with Bogdana Herman on the project of Newly-Composed Slovenian Folk Songs. A series of interactive autonomous structures/sculptures High-Tension Structures.

Bang Soda! Ponovno vstajenje. Avstralija, 2015 predmet

O tem delu: Uhhhhhh - kako naj vam razložim vse to, ne da bi ob tem delovala kot norec? Resnica je, da je to delo nastalo iz dolge in kompleksne serije pomenljivo brezpomenskih čustvenih dogodkov, zaradi katerih sem na steklenico napitka Bang Soda prilepila obraz Igorja Štromajerja in vse skupaj upodobila na velikanskem platnu dimenzij 185 x 150cm. To sem storila pred nekaj leti za tematsko razstavo. Eden izmed razlogov za mojo odločitev, in teh je štiritisočdevetstopetindvajset (vseh nikakor ne morem umestiti v ta kratek opis) - da se je čedni obraz kustosa festivala Pixxelpointa pojavljal na vseh možnih plakatih in majicah ter steklenicah piva ob prelestnih dekletih iz dežele Facebooka. To mu je prineslo slavo. Zato sem sklenila, da moram njegovo popularnost prenesti v neko drugo dimenzijo, čisto zares. Sliko sem prodala, izkupiček je bil mimogrede odličen, in tako zdaj psevdo-kustos visi v domu neke osebe, nesmrten in spremenjen v trgovsko blago. Nikakor mu nisem želela narediti sramote, zato njegovega kolosalnega obraza nisem prilepila na prevelik plakat in ga postavila vsem pred oči. Namesto tega sem ga upodobila na nalepki steklenice, kjer ga skorajda ni mogoče videti, čeprav vi to veste, saj sem vam jaz povedala, da je tam. UMETNIK / UMETNICA

Mislim, da sem umetnica, torej verjetno sem. Takšno ime si pripisujem samo zato, ker so mi drugi povedali, da je tako prav. Včasih sem se predstavljala kot »slikarka«, vendar te dni moj ustvarjalni proces sega precej širše, svoje slikarsko in grafično znanje uporabljam za to, da stvari spreminjam v komercialne dobrine. Morda sem umetnica, morda pa tudi ne – in to je morda pomembno, morda pa tudi ne, odvisno pač od tega, kaj je po vašem umetnost – oziroma kaj ni. Konec. — catleonardart.squarespace.com title

Bang Soda! The resurrection. Australia, 2015 object

About this work: uugghhhh - how do I explain what this is all about without sounding like an idiot? The truth of the matter as to how this work came about is a long and complicated series of meaningfully-meaningless, emotional events that caused me to put the face of Igor Štromajer on the bottle of Bang Soda in the enormous 185x150cm painting I did a couple of years ago for a themed exhibition. One of the reasons I did this, and there are four-thousand-nine-hundred-and-twenty-five reasons, (I’ll never


fit them all into a short ‘artists’ statement), but one of the reasons is because the curator of the Pixxelpoint festival’s handsome face kept appearing on all sorts billboards and T-shirts and bottles of beer with gorgeous women in Facebook land. He was famous for it. So I made it my duty to extend his popularity into the 2nd dimension, for real. I sold the painting, got a good price for it too, so now that same pseudo-curator is on the wall in someone’s house, immortalised and commodified. I don’t want to embarrass him, however, so instead of plastering an enormous face on an enormous poster of the famous curator for all to see, he is there on the bottle on the label on the bottle, barely seen but you know he’s there just as I tell you ‘he’s there.’ artist

I think I’m an artist therefore I must be. The only reason I call myself an artist is because people told me I should. I use to call myself a ‘painter’, but I do bit more than just paint these days, I also combine my painting and graphic skills for the purpose of commodifying stuff. I may, or may not be, an artist and it may, or may not, matter depending on what you think art is, or isn’t. The End. — catleonardart.squarespace.com podoba / image

Leta 1995 sem sanjala o tem, da bi postala prepoznavna računalniška umetnica, ki bi svoja dela prikazovala na razstavah po celem svetu. Dolga leta sem potovala po Evropi, opremljena s spalno vrečo in prenosnim računalnikom, ustvarjala umetniške projekte v različnih krajih, a moj uspeh, moj preboj, kar nekako ni prišel. Leta 2005 sem internetno umetnost končno obesila na klin. To je bil čas Bloggerja, Facebooka in Youtuba. My odgovor na Web 2.0 je bil neobičajen: začela sem izdelovati denarnice iz praznih kartonastih embalaž mleka. Ker sem bila še vedno računalniška umetnica, sem posnela video moje reciklirane denarnice. Takrat sem dosegla svoj največji uspeh na internetu. Piše se leto 2015 in jaz še danes izdelujem denarnice iz praznih kartonastih embalaž mleka. Skozi leta sem zbrala številne različne embalaže. Eden mojih najljubših dizajnov je rastrirana embalaža za Alpsko mleko. Žal je litrska embalaža zdaj kvadratne oblike, iz katere je mnogo težje izdelati denarnico. Enako obliko ima le mali tetrapak, kar simbolizira mojo kariero internetne umetnice tu, na Pixxelpointu. UMETNIK / UMETNICA

In 1995, it was my dream to become a well-known computer artist, showing my work in exhibitions around the world. For many years I traveled around Europe with sleeping-bag and laptop, doing art projects in many different


places, but somehow the success, the break-through, never happened. In 2005, I had enough of creating internet related art. It was the time of Blogger, Facebook and YouTube. My answer to the Web 2.0 was an unusual response: I started creating wallets from empty milk cartons. Since I was still a computer artist I made a video of my recycled wallet. It became my biggest success on the Internet. In 2015 I am still creating wallets from empty milk cartons. Over the years I have collected many different packages. One of my favorite designs is the pixelated Alpsko mleko carton. Unfortunately, the one-liter carton has a square design now, which is much harder to make a wallet from. Only the small carton is still the same, symbolizing my career as an internet artist here at Pixxelpoint. artist

Cym (Simone van Groenestijn, 1973), studied ‘Interaction Design & Unstable Media’ in Amsterdam and is currently finishing a Master’s degree ‘Education in Arts’ in Rotterdam. She collaborates with international artist groups, such as 42, Aether9 and Acryl. She has started an art center on an old farm in Austria. In her artistic work, Cym focuses on objects and situations from everyday life. She manages to present everyday life situations in such a way that they start telling us something new. She makes us aware of things we see every day around us, but often don’t really notice. Via minimal interventions, such as asking a question, Cym challenges the viewer to look at these things from a different perspective. Cym has created a fascinating language of images, objects and videos, which she presents in a variety of projects, ranging from media art to education to selling objects on a local street market. Cym lives and works in Austria and in The Netherlands. — www.cym.net podoba / image

Posmrtna maska Simona Gregorčiča Avtor odlitka: Svitoslav Peruzzi, 1906 Rojstna hiša Simona Gregorčiča, Tolminski muzej, Zbirka Simona Gregorčiča, Vrsno Slovenija, 2015 predmet

Neposredno po smrti pomembne osebnosti je profesionalni kipar izdelal kalup njegovega obraza in nato odlil omejeno število mask v vosku ali


mavcu. Posmrtne maske so nato služile (in ponekod še služijo) kot spomin na pokojnika tako v javnosti (na nagrobnih spomenikih, spomenikih in na spominskih razstavah oz. muzejskih postavitvah) kot tudi v zasebnosti (hranijo jih dediči / družinski člani in kiparji, ki so maske odlili). Za odlivanje posmrtnih mask so najemali znane kiparje, ki so radi prišli po dodatni zaslužek. Torej bi sosledje pokojnikovih zadnjih uradnih obiskovalcev bilo: zdravnik, župnik, kipar, pogrebnik. V tem sosledju status in vloga umetnika kot nekoga, ki ima znanja ovekovečiti umrlega, ni sporen. Čeprav je kompleksen pojav posmrtnih mask prisoten v večini civilizacij in navadno vezan na posmrtno življenje, je zgoraj opisana različica značilna za sekularno zahodno družbo. Odlivanje obrazov umrlih oseb je služilo predvsem nadaljnji eksploataciji umrle osebe za potrebe raznovrstnih, natančno strukturiranih družbenih projektov. UMETNIK / UMETNICA

Društvo so leta 2004 ustanovili umetnika Damijan Kracina in Alenka Pirman ter umetnostni zgodovinar Jani Pirnat. Člani društva aktivno delujejo na področju sodobne umetnosti od leta 1991. Društvo beleži, zbira, raziskuje in predstavlja domače pojave. Njegovo delovanje sega na kulturno, umetniško, znanstveno, izobraževalno in raziskovalno področje. Med letoma 2005 in 2010 je društvo svoje raziskave predstavljalo v Kabinetu, odmaknjenem razstavišču, ki je gostovalo v dvoriščnem prostoru Galerije Škuc v Ljubljani. Odtlej člani stremijo k interdisciplinarnemu sodelovanju s strokovnjaki in institucijami, ki omogoča razvoj inovativnih pristopov k obravnavanju in predstavljanju zadanih tem. Pri tem veliko pozornost posvečajo povezovanju sodobne umetnosti in dediščine, širjenju občinstva in komuniciranju s širšo javnostjo. Prva večja tovrstna projekta sta bili raziskava in razstava Dobesedno brez besed v Mestni galeriji Ljubljana leta 2010 ter mednarodni projekt Trda dejstva (2012-13). Stalnica in trajna uspešnica društva ostaja projekt Razvezani jezik, skupnostni spletni slovar žive slovenščine, ki je postal nespregledljiv tudi v strokovnih krogih, vendar že 10 let navdušuje najširšo javnost. — www.ddr.si title

The Death Mask of Simon Gregorčič Author of the cast: Svitoslav Peruzzi, 1906 Simon Gregorčič’s Birth Home, Tolmin Museum, Collection of Simon Gregorčič, Vrsno Slovenia, 2015 object

Immediately after the death of an important personality, a professional sculptor would create a mold of the dead poet’s face and create a limited number of wax or plaster casts. The death masks would then be used (and in some cases still are) to commemorate the person both in public (tombstones, monuments and commemorative exhibitions or museum installations) and in private (kept by the heirs, family members and the sculptors who made the molds). They used to hire renowned sculptors to make the molds, who would not object to making some extra money on the side. So, the order of the deceased’s last visitors would be the following: the doctor, the priest, the sculptor, the funeral director. In this sequence, the artist’s role as someone with the skills to immortalize the deceased, is


indisputable. Although the complex phenomenon of death masks is known in most civilizations and is usually associated with the hereafter, the above variant is specific to the secular Western society. Molding the visages of the deceased served mainly to exploit the deceased for different, carefully structured social projects. artist

The Society was founded in 2004 by artists Damijan Kracina and Alenka Pirman, and art historian Jani Pirnat. The members of the society have been active in the field of modern art since 1991. The society records, collects, studies and discusses domestic phenomena. Its scope of activity spans across the cultural, artistic, scientific, educational and research fields. Between 2005 and 2010, the Society presented its research in Kabinet, a remote venue which was hosted in the courtyard of the Škuc Gallery in Ljubljana. Since them, the members have been focusing on interdisciplinary collaboration with experts and institutions, which supports the development of innovative approaches to the research and presentation of relevant subjects. They place great emphasis on strengthening the link between modern art and heritage, expanding their audience, and communicating with the general public. Their first major projects were the research and exhibition under the title “Literally Without Words” in the Ljubljana City Gallery in 2010, and the international project Hard Facts (2012-13). A popular mainstay remains the “Unbound Tongue” project, the online community dictionary of vernacular Slovenian, which was also noticed in professional circles and has been popular among broader audiences. — www.ddr.si podoba / image

Mercedes je računski stroj, ki je človeškim računalnikom pomagal pri različnih matematičnih izračunih pred prihodom elektronskih računalnikov. Med drugim so ga v dvajsetih letih prejšnjega stoletja pod vodstvom Clare Froelich uporabljali na matematičnem oddelku telefonskega laboratorija Bell v New Yorku, v raziskovalne namene. V 1950-ih so ga uporabljali tudi v moskovskem inštitutu Keldysh (Akademija znanosti) za izračunavanje krivulj leta za prvi satelit na svetu, Sputnik, pod vodstvom Aleksandra K. Platonova in Raise K. Kazakove. Mercedes je tako povezoval Vzhod in Zahod v dobi industrijskega, ročnega računanja. UMETNIK / UMETNICA

Francis Hunger (*1976, Dessau) živi in dela v Leipzigu. V svoji umetniški praksi povezuje umetniško raziskovanje s pripovedništvom skozi medij instalacij, radijskih iger in performansov. V njegovih delih je vključeno kritičen razmislek o historičnemu opisovanju tehnologijo kot ideološko zaznamovanem védenju in konstruktu moči. Instalacije in performansi: The Setun Conspiracy (2005-2008) o svetovnemu ternarnemu - in ne binarnemu - računalniku Setunu, ki so ga leta 1958 razvili na Državni univerzi v Moskvi; History Exhaustion (2009) o zmotljivosti posameznika sredi ideološkega izmeta 20. stoletja. The Woman Who Never Went into Space (2012) je instalacija in radijska igra o Valentini Ponormayevi, ki je bila leta 1963 izbrana kot namestnica prve ženske v vesolju. Video instalacija Tolpa (2012) govori o prikazovanju mas v filmih Dzige Vertofa. V svojem delu Deep Love Algorithm (2013) Hunger raziskuje podatkovno bazo kot kulturno obliko skozi »road movie«, sestavljen pretežno iz teksta. — www.irmielin.org title

The Mercedes is a calculation machine that helped human computers in computing all kinds of applied mathematics before electronic computers. It was used for instance by the Mathematics Division of the Bell Telephone Laboratory, New York during the 1920s under Clara Froelich for research applications. On the other side of the world, the Keldysh Institute (Academy of Sciences), Moscow, used it during the 1950s to calculate trajectories for Sputnik, the world’s first satellite under Alexandr K. Platonov and Raisa K. Kazakova. The Mercedes such spans the continuum between the East and the West during the era of industrial, manual calculation.

Francis Hunger (*1976, Dessau) lives and works in Leipzig. In his practice he combines artistic research with the capabilities of narration through installations, radio plays and performances. His works realize a critical examination of the historiography of technology as ideologically charged knowledge and power constellations. Installations and performances: The Setun Conspiracy (2005-2008) about the world wide singular ternary –non binary– computer Setun, developed at the Moscow State University in 1958; History Exhaustion (2009) about the errantry of the individual in the 20th centuries’ ideological debris. The Woman who never went into Space (2012) is an installation and radio play about Valentina Ponomaryeva, who in 1963 was the backup for the first woman in space. The video installation Tolpa (2012) deals with the depiction of masses in Dziga Vertovs’ movies.

With a background in Hacktivism, Net Art and Video Art, Guido Segni, aka Clemente Pestelli, (b. 1980, Italy) lives and works somewhere at the intersections between art, pop internet culture and data hallucination. Mainly focused on the daily (ab)use of Internet, his work is characterized by minimal gestures on technology which combine conceptual aproaches with a traditional hacker attitude in making things odd, useless and dysfunctional. In quite recent years he moved from an identity to another


producing works, actions and interventions under pseudonyms, collectives and multiple names (Dedalus, Clemente Pestelli, Guy McMusker, Angela Merelli, Anna Adamolo, Guy The Bore, Umberto Stanca, Silvie Inb, Fosco Loiti Celant, Guru Miri Goro, Leslie Bleus, Luther Blissett).

Ko pride čas za odhod domov, se želim vrniti s polnimi rokami daril za tiste, ki so ostali doma, za tiste, ki svojega časa niso mogli preživeti na potovanju. Ampak pogosto se vrnem s praznimi žepi, saj noben predmet ne more opisati kompleksnosti sveta, ki sem ga raziskovala. Kljub temu pa z vsakim potovanjem in vsakim predmetom, ki ga odkrijem, vedno znova želim svoje vtise strniti v en sam spominek, čeprav mi to pogosto ne uspe. UMETNIK / UMETNICA

Bel, plastičen vrtni stol Nizozemska, 2015 predmet

»Sedenje je eden največjih užitkov pri sprehodih.« Dillon de Give, 2014 1. Nekega dne sem videla starejšega gospoda, ki je na majhnem trgu blizu mojega studia postavil bel, plastičen stol. Nato je sedel, kot če bi bil doma. Javni prostor je tako spremenil v zasebnega. Svet je bil njegov. 2. Ko sem gostovala v umetniški rezidenci »het Vijfe Seizonen« (prev. Peti letni čas) na posestvu psihiatrične bolnišnice v Den Dolderju (Nizozemska), sem vsepovsod videla zapuščene bele plastične stole. V istem času sem brala knjigo Roya Villevoyea, ki je fotografiral bel stol na vrtu v Papui Novi Gvineji. Takrat sem ugotovila, da je to pravzaprav (morda celo edini) univerzalni stol. 3. Sedenje (v nizozemščini: »zitten«) daje vtis, da se nekaj nekje »nahaja«. Ko nekoga vprašam “Waar zou je willen zitten” (Kam se boste usedli?), pravzaprav sprašujem, kjer bi oseba rada bila. Implicitno torej sprašujem, kakšno okolje je osebi všeč. Ko izberemo kraj, kjer se bomo usedli, se hkrati odločimo, da bomo tudi sami postali del tega kraja. Gre za nekakšno prisvojitev.


4. V Zahodnem svetu preživimo ure in ure pred računalnikom in preživljamo čas na spletu. Kje torej v resnici »sedimo«? 5. Bel, plastičen vrtni stol je povezan s fizičnim svetom telesa in čutil. Označuje Tukaj in zdaj. 6. Zapuščen bel, plastičen vrtni stol je enak prisotnosti v odsotnosti. UMETNIK / UMETNICA

Ienke Kastelein zanima zaznava. Sprašuje se o tem, kdaj in na kakšen način se dejstva pretvarjajo v fikcijo in pod kakšnimi pogoji se resničnost zaznava kot prispodoba. Zato sta hoja in sedenje postala poglavitni raziskovalni metodi, hkrati pa tudi izrazni obliki. Javni prostor postane studio, hoja pa postane performans, v katerem so udeleženci nastopajoči in hkrati gledalci, medtem ko odzivi mimoidočih nenadoma ustvarijo izredno resničnost. Njen umetniški pristop bi lahko opisali kot ulična scenografija. Kasteleinova je svojo umetniško pot začela kot fotografinja in svojo pozornost usmerja v resničnost kot tako - fotoaparat pri tem uporablja samo kot dokumentarno sredstvo. Zanima jo tanka meja med »igro« v resničnem življenju in performansom. Zlasti jo zanimata hoja in sedenje kot zavestni obliki bivanja ter njuno senzorično občutje. Njen celotni ustvarjalni opus je raziskovanje in razmislek o prisotnosti in o samem bivanju.

A White Plastic Patio Chair The Netherlands, 2015 object

“Sitting is one of the greatest pleasures of walking.” Dillon de Give, 2014 1.Once upon a time I saw an older man putting down a white plastic chair in the middle of a small square near my studio. He sat down as if he were home, at home, at his house : he transformed public space into a private place. The world belonged to him. 2. While staying at the residency “het Vijfde Seizoen” (translation: the Fifth Season*) at the grounds of a Psychiatric Hospital in Den Dolder (NLD) I saw white plastic chairs left behind everywhere. At the same time I read a book by Roy Villevoye who photographed a white chair on a patio in Papua New Guinnee. I became aware that this chair may be a (or the) universal chair. 3. Sitting (in Dutch: Zitten) has the connotation of “Being Somewhere”. So when I ask someone “Waar zou je willen zitten” (Where would you like to sit?) I actually am asking where would you like to be? This implies an inquiry after what the person likes as an environment. By sitting down somewhere we choose to be a part of it. It is a kind of appropriation.


4. In the Western world we spend hours per day in front of our computer, spending time on the World Wide Web. Where are we really “sitting”? 5. A White Plastic Patio refers to being in the physical world of the body and the senses. To being Here and Now. 6. An Abandoned White Plastic Patio Chair equals Presence

by Absence.

artist

Ienke Kastelein is interested in perception. She raises questions about when and how facts are transformed into fiction, and when reality is perceived as a metaphor. Hence walking and sitting have become essential research methods as well as performances. Public space is conceived as the studio and walking is approached as a performance in which participants are the actors as well as the spectators at the same time, where as the behaviour of passersby is suddenly transformed into an extraordinary reality. Her approach can be perceived as scenography of the street. Kastelein started out as a photographer and has been shifting her attention towards reality itself - using her camera merely to document. She is interested in the narrow boundary between ‘acting’ in real life and performance. She is especially interested in sitting and walking as a conscious way of being and as the actual sensatory experience. Her whole body of work is a research and a reflection on being present and presence itself.

Vrata na vlaku Slovenija, 2015 predmet

Mlajši, od tega je že dolgo, star okrog 16 ali 17 let, sem se podal na vlak, v iskanju avantur, z ljubeznijo v srcu, z nekaj drobiža v žepu. Prebral sem nekaj pesmi, poslušal glasbo iz preloma 1960-tih v 1970ta, iz ZDA in UK. Hipiji iz kapitalizma so mi, takrat živečemu v nekako komunistični Jugoslaviji, peli o potovanjih, bolj iz plošč kot v živo. Tako sem se znašel na vlaku Jugoslovanskih železnic. Internet še ni prišel do mene. So pa vagoni imeli stranišče. In to je imelo vrata. In ta kljuko. Pod kljuko je pisalo “Prosto” ali “Zasedeno” - odvisno od tega, ali je bilo stranišče pač prosto ali zasedeno, odprto ali zaklenjeno. Kasneje, ko je prišel internet, sem pisal internetno poezijo, v ozadju sprogramirano. (Ergodično – glej: Espen J. Aarseth: Cybertext. O besedilu, ki se zgodi, ko nekdo/bralec nekaj naredi.)

Train Doors Slovenia, 2015 object

When I was younger, a long time ago, I must have been about 16 or 17, I took a train ride in search of an adventure, with love in my heart and some small change in my pocket. I read a few poems, listened to the British and American music from the late 60s and early 70s. Living in the somewhat communist Yugoslavia at the time, the hippies from capitalism sang songs to me, more often through records than in live performances. And so I somehow found myself riding on the Yugoslav Railways train. The internet had not yet reached me. However, there was a toilet on the passenger wagons. And the toilet had a door. And the door had a doorknob. The doorknob had a little sign that said “Occupied” or “Vacant” - depending on whether the toilet was occupied or vacant, in use or not. Later, after the arrival of the internet, I was writing internet poetry, programmed in its background. (Ergodic – See: Espen J. Aarseth: Cybertext. About the text that happens when someone/the reader does something.) The train door is the first example of this concept I ever saw, before I even realized what it was and before I logged in for the first time.

Najdeni posnetki, akcijska figura rokoborca Nizozemska / Nemčija, 2015 predmet

Če sam ne veš, ti tudi jaz ne bom povedal, prijatelj! Ta športna disciplina se začne z melodramatičnimi situacijami in liki, nato pa se iz tega razvije igra. Gre za temeljne principe temeljev sveta, za ontološko barantanje, ki ustvari performans, ta pa nato ustvari občinstvo. Ta predstava spretno uporablja vplive kulture in družbenega okolja in tako vpliva na vedenje občinstva. Skupinski konformizem se ustvari iz starih dramatičnih nasprotij, deli in vladaj. Z gledalci vzpostavi stik tako, da jih obravnava in neposredno vključuje v svojo predstavo kot neodvisne strokovnjake, z afirmiranjem in problematiziranjem kulturnih norm ter s hkratnim zaupanjem in nezaupanjem v tisto, kar se odvija pred očmi občinstva. Gre za to, da občinstvo v resnici ne omejuje svoje nejevere, ampak jo ohranja, ob tem pa išče trenutke, ki se mu zdijo resnični. Zato je igralec bodisi junak ali zlobnež v dramatični predstavi, nekakšen spomenik verjetnosti, gesta, ki razodeva obliko Pravičnosti, ki je na koncu


prepoznavna, telo postane politična paleta njihovih lastnih prepričanj in kulturnih implikacij v družbeni areni. UMETNIK / UMETNICA

Found Footage, Wrestling Action Figure The Netherlands / Germany, 2015 object

If you don’t know I am not going to tell you, brother! This discipline begins with the situations and characters of melodrama and then, through its own devices, turns them into a game. It’s the fundaments of the foundation of a world, the ontological bartering, that produces that performance which, in turn, produces the audience. This spectacle uses cultural and environmental influences in society to influence the behaviors of the audience. A group conformity is created by the old dramatic conflicts, divide and conquer. It makes contact with its spectators by treating and engaging them as emancipated experts directly in its play, in affirming and challenging cultural norms and in believing and disbelieving in what it sees at the same time. They don’t so much suspend disbelief as they sustain it while looking for moments in which to believe. Therefore he is the hero or the villain of the drama, a sort of metaphysical sign, a statue of believe, the pure gesture that unveils the form of a Justice which is at last intelligible, a body as political palette for their own meanings and cultural implications in a social arena. artist

Zakaj bi me predstavljal predmet? Slovenija, 2015 predmet

Prosojnost, prehodnost in rahla odsevnost so lastnosti predmeta, s katerim avtorica sodeluje pri razstavi. Obiskovalec lahko na predmetu pusti svoj pečat, ga lahko nato izbriše ali pusti toku časa. V »drobnem tisku« je na predmetu izpisano vprašanje: »Why would an object represent me?,« zakaj bi katerikoli predmet predstavljal človeka?

UMETNIK / UMETNICA

Katarina Kogoj je 2010 magistrirala s področja interpretacije dediščine na univerzi v Newcastlu in od takrat deluje predvsem na tem področju. Ni umetnica, je pa kanček gika, kanček naravoljubca, kanček vagabunda in precej vedoželjna. Od leta 2014 je študentka magistrskega programa Medijske umetnosti in prakse na Visoki šoli za umetnost Univerze v Novi Gorici.

Why would an object represent me? Slovenia, 2015 object

Translucence, transparence and iridescence are the characteristics of the object which the author contributed to the exhibition. Visitors may leave their mark on the object, then wash it off or let the flow of time take its course. The “small print” on the object features the question: “Why would an object represent me?” - why would any object at all represent a human being?

artist

Katarina Kogoj obtained her master’s degree in Heritage Interpretation at the Newcastle University, and has since been primarily involved with this field of interest. While not an artist, she is a bit of a geek, a bit of a nature lover, a bit of a vagabond, and quite enthusiastic about learning. Since 2014, she has been enrolled in the post-graduate course of Media Art and Practice at the University of Nova Gorica School of Arts. podoba / image

Industrijski papir Nemčija, 2015 predmet

Konec papirja kot glavnega medija pisne komunikacije je prišel tistega dne, ko je moja mati, ki je prebrala na stotine knjig, a nikoli ni uporabila računalnika, kupila Kindle. Knjige so predstavljale zadnji branik sveta papirja. Zakaj torej sodobni človek še vedno uporablja papir za brisanje riti? Tudi kot material za pakiranje ga je pretežno nadomestila plastika, samo karton se še vedno uporablja za pošiljanje paketov prek Amazona. Predizdelani »industrijski papir« v spomin prikliče posebno estetiko in naravno toplino papirja in industrijski produkt uporabi za predstavljanje zadnje faze tega medija. UMETNIK / UMETNICA

Kim Asendorf je konceptualni umetnik, ki pri svojem delu uporablja digitalne medije, ki vsebujejo internetno kulturo in tehnologijo. Njegova dela segajo od online projektov in performansov do likovne umetnosti in instalacij. Znan je po tem, da je izumil Pixel Sorting, odprtokodni algoritem za spreminjanje slikovnega zapisa, pa tudi po ustvarjanju datotečnih oblik kot umetniških del ter po tem, da je ustvaril Prvi animirani GIF, ki je bil poslan v širno vesolje. Kimova dela so bila predstavljena na festivalih in institucijah, kot so Transmediale, ZKM Karlsruhe, Edith-Russ-Haus für Medienkunst, NCCA Yekaterinburg, Eyebeam, NIMK, LEAP oziroma Overlapping Biennial Bucharest ter v galerijah in na sejmih, kot so Unpainted (München), Moving Image Contemporary Art Fair (London), Creation Gallery G8 (Tokyo), Carroll / Fletcher (London), KM Temporaer (Berlin), XPO Gallery (Pariz) ali The Photographers’ Gallery (London), dobil pa je tudi častna priznanja in spodbudil kontroverzne razprave na popularnih blogih, medijskih in umetniških revijah ter na televiziji.

Industrial Paper Germany, 2015 object

The end of paper as the main medium of written communication was sealed on the day on which my mother, who reads countless books but has never used a computer, has switched to Kindle. Books were the last bastion of the paper world. For what does modern man still use paper beside to wipe the ass? Even as a packaging material, it has mainly been replaced by plastics, only cardboard is still being used for Amazon shipments. The ready-made


‘Industrial Paper’ recalls the special aesthetics and natural warmth of paper and uses the industrial product to display the last stage of the medium. artist

Kim Asendorf is a conceptual artist working with digital media incorporating Internet culture and technology. His work ranges from online projects and performances to visual art and installations. He is widely know for the invention of Pixel Sorting, an image altering algorithm he made Open Source, the creation of file formats as work of art or The First Animated GIF Send Into Deep Space. Kim’s works has been shown at festivals and institutions like Transmediale, ZKM Karlsruhe, Edith-Russ-Haus für Medienkunst, NCCA Yekaterinburg, Eyebeam, NIMK, LEAP or the Overlapping Biennial Bucharest and at galleries and fairs like Unpainted (Munich), Moving Image Contemporary Art Fair (London), Creation Gallery G8 (Tokyo), Carroll / Fletcher (London), KM Temporaer (Berlin), XPO Gallery (Paris) or The Photographers’ Gallery (London) and got honorary mentions and created controversial discussions on major blogs, media and art magazines or television.

Masažni stol Republika Češka / Avstrija, 2015 predmet

Osrednji koncept projekta je spodbujanje k ustvarjanju užitka, ne umetnosti. Pri delu me zanimajo predvsem čustva in potrebe gledalca. Mislim, da obiskovalci na razstavah vidijo veliko umetniških del, zato so zelo utrujeni in potrebujejo počitek - in ravno za takšne obiskovalce pride prav masažica v masažnem stolu. Kot uporabnik mojega predmeta lahko občutite ugodje v imenu umetnosti. Umetniški kos vibrira in tako ustvarja ugodje. Vibracije sem uporabil kot osrednji koncept umetniškega dela že pri mojih dveh predhodnih projektih - »Future Kiss« in »The Will«. V tem projektu vibracije nudijo pravo masažo v masažnem stolu. Obiskovalci si lahko privoščijo počitek ter ob tem občutijo miselno in telesno ugodje. V tem primeru moj umetniški kos deluje kot medij, ki obiskovalca pripravi na drugačno umetniško izkušnjo. UMETNIK / UMETNICA

Mgr.art. Lenka Klimešová, MA (1986), je multimedijska in multidisciplinarna umetnica, ki pri svojem delu raziskuje koncept opazovanja telesa skozi prizmo spola kot otipljive maske, ki temelji na prostorskih identitetah in vzorniških modelih, dekonstruiranih v medkulturnih hibridnih performansih. Ustvarja predvsem v medijih, ki vsebujejo časovno dimenzijo - video, performans in interaktivne instalacije. Leta 2014 je uspešno zaključila magistrski študij vmesniških kultur na univerzi Kunstuniversität v Linzu, Avstriji. Trenutno je vpisana na doktorski študij na Fakulteti za umetniške znanosti, na univerzi Kunstuniversität v Linzu, Avstriji. Od leta 2008 je s svojimi deli sodelovala že na več kot 90 razstavah, festivalih, delavnicah in konferencah. Njeno delo Future Kiss je bilo nagrajeno s častno omembo na festivalu Prix Ars Electronica 2009 v kategoriji interaktivnih umetnosti ter na festivalu 2012 ARTE Creative TV Streberprämie. — klimesova.daportfolio.com — vimeo.com/klimesova title

Massage Chair Czech Republic / Austria, 2015 object

The main idea of the project is to make pleasure and not art. I primarily focus on the spectator’s feelings and needs. I imagine the visitors watch


many artworks at the exhibition and they get totally tired and just need a bit rest - and for that they can enjoy a massage in the massage chair. As a user of my object you can feel good in the name of art. The project works with a vibration producing a pleasant feeling. I have used the vibration as the main concept of the artwork already in two previous projects – “Future Kiss” and “The Will”. In this project the vibration provides a real massage in the massage chair. Visitors can have a rest and enjoy the mental as well as a physical pleasure of the provided massage. In this case my art object works as a medium which prepares the visitor for a new artistic experience. artist

Mgr.art. Lenka Klimešová, MA (1986) is a multimedia and multidisciplinary artist working with the issue of perceiving a body through gender as a playful tangible disguise based on space identities and role models deconstructed in the intercultural hybrid performances. She creates mainly in time-based media – video, performance and interactive installation. In 2014 she received a MA with honors in Interface Cultures at Kunstuniversität Linz, Austria. She is currently enrolled in PhD studies at the Faculty of Art Science and Philosophy, KU Linz. Since 2008 she participated in more than 90 exhibitions, festivals, workshops and conferences. Her work Future Kiss was awarded the Prix Ars Electronica 2009 Honorary Mention in the Interactive Arts category and 2012 ARTE Creative TV Streberprämie. — klimesova.daportfolio.com — vimeo.com/klimesova podoba / image

Ljubezen Slovenija, 2015 predmet

Rada bi, da živiš, tako da se pozneje vedno lahko zgodi umor. Razumeti moraš, da je moja zlonamernost le način za zmago. Želimo vedeti ime našega uničevalca. Povem ti, da je prijaznost precenjena. Rada bi zapisala svojo skrivnost na tvoje nebo. Všeč mi je, ko izgubiš nadzor. Poškoduj me s svojimi šapami in zobmi, tako da vem, kje si bil... Vznemiri nas, ko zakoljejo žival, to nam daje občutek sentimentalnosti. Tako sentimentalni smo, da komaj čakamo, da okusimo njen strah, ko jo pojemo za večerjo. Prerasli smo strah. Želeli smo biti tam, ko se razmesari njen vroči, črni bes. Želimo okusiti meso naše vrste: Narava-kultura postane ena beseda. Ti si moje hranilo, tako kot sem jaz sem tvoje. Ko hočem zadaviti zvezde zaradi vsega, kar so mi obljubile, zajokam vate, stisnem tvoj mehki kožušček in ti povem, da sem si svoje rane zadala sama. Ko umrem, želim biti nekje na lepem, s teboj, saj ti utelešaš moj intimni čustveni spomin. Rada bi, da mi razložiš razliko med otrokom in domačo živaljo? Sem nemara pes? Rada bi bila tvoj pes. Rada bi te nehala uničevati, a ne morem. To je najina intimnost. UMETNIK / UMETNICA

Love Slovenia, 2015 object

I want to keep you alive so there is always the possibility of murder later. I want you to understand that my malevolence is just a way to win. We want the name of our ruiner. I want you to know that being kind is overrated. I want to write my secret across your sky. I like to watch you lose control. … I want your paws and teeth to scar me so I’ll know where you’ve been … We get excited when an animal is slaughtered and therefore


we feel sentimental. So sentimental that we can´t wait to taste it´s fear while eating it for dinner. We transcendent fear. We wanted to be there when its hot black rage ripped wide open. We want to taste our own kind: Nature-Culture ends up being one word. You are my nutrient as I am yours. When I want to strangle the stars for all they promised me, I cry into you, hugging your soft fur and I want you to know my wounds are self-inflicted. I want to be somewhere beautiful when I die, with you, as you embody my intimate emotional memory. I want you to make me understand what is the difference between a child and domesticated animal? Am I a dog? I want to be your dog. I want to stop destroying you but I can’t. This is our intimacy. artist

Maja Smrekar was born in 1978, in Slovenia. In 2005 she graduated from Sculpture at the Ljubljana Fine Arts and Design Academy, where she is taking a master’s course in Video and New Media.

Pogled Slovenija, 2015 predmet

To delo je izraz nečesa izrazito človeškega, sega v odnose med prostorom, družbo in intimnostjo. Delo je večstopenjsko, razvijajoče, razpira se med omejitve in svobodo izraza v materiji. Prehodnost, cikličnost, spiralnost. Pomen se razširi v preteklost. UMETNIK / UMETNICA

Sem Majda Gregorič, umetnica, ki se obsesivno naslanja na s-misel. Smisel sebe boljše razumeti in to deliti z drugimi. Pri tem izhajam iz svoje večkulturne in ženske izkušnje. Zagotovo ste slišali govorice o težavah, ki jih imam zadnje čase, in o hudi krizi, v kateri sem se znašla. Najprej hočem, da veste, da je vse, kar ste slišali o meni, laž. Vedno sem poskušala živeti “pravo” življenje. Navsezadnje mislim, da poznate moje delo in nedvomno veste, da sem se mu popolnoma posvetila, vendar so stvari dosegle takšno stopnjo neznosnosti, da mislim, da tega ne bom mogla več dolgo prenašati. Živim in delam v Ljubljani, pa tudi drugod po svetu. Moja dela so kot iztrgana iz življenja in se stapljajo v prostor, hočejo biti aluzija za pogovor, ki ga sprožajo. Biti umetnik je močna dejavnost, in hkrati šibka, če je res, da si jo lahko kdorkoli prisvoji in jo prerazdeljuje naprej v svoji firmi, toliko bolje, če je ta ugledna. Material, telesa, umetniške strukture, postavitve v prostoru, pripovedujejo zgodbe odstiranja plasti spomina, prvobitnosti v perspektivi bodočega. — vimeo.com/majdagre | facebook.com/Brlog.0 title

The Look Slovenia, 2015 object

This work is an expression of something characteristically human, it explores the relationships between the space, society and intimacy. The work operates on multiple levels, developing and stretching between the limitations and freedom of expression in matter. Transitivity, cyclicity, spirality. Meaning expands into the past. artist

My name is Majda Gregorič, an artist who is obsessively leaning on cause and meaning. My cause is to better understand myself and share this with others. I draw inspiration from my multicultural experience, as well as my


experience as a woman. I am sure you have heard about the troubles I have been having lately and about the great crisis I got myself into. First, I want you to know that everything you heard about me is a lie. I have always tried to live the “right” life. At the end of the day, I think you know my work and I am sure you know that I have given myself to it completely, but this has put me in such an unbearable situation that I don’t think I will be able to bear it much longer. I live and work in Ljubljana, as well as other parts of the world. My works are torn out from life and melded into space, they seek to serve as an allusion to the discussion they spark. Being an artist is a powerful calling, and a weak one at the same time, if it is true that anyone can appropriate it at any time and disseminate it along in their firm – even better if the firm is a reputable one. Material, bodies, artistic structures, 3D installations, they all tell stories about removing layers of memory, the primordial in the perspective of what is to come. — vimeo.com/majdagre | facebook.com/Brlog.0 podoba / image

To je čuden in zanimiv svet »skoraj trinajstletne« deklice Mouchette, znane tudi pod imenom nizozemske umetnice Martine Neddam (www.neddam. org). Vokalni deli zvočnega zapisa, označeni z oznako »Spoken« (govor), niso nujno popolnoma natančno usklajeni z zapisanimi ritmi (dovolj je naravni govorni ritem). Deli zvočnega zapisa z oznako »Buzzing Fly« (brenčanje muhe) so improvizacijski segmenti, kjer lahko igralci oponašajo brenčanje muhe s svojim instrumentom; lahko bi začeli s hitrimi, ritmično nepravilnimi prehodi na trobilih in s hitrim tremolom, ustvarjenim z vzdolžnim drsenjem po strunah na godalnih instrumentih. To bi moralo zveneti kot mehko, rahlo nadležno zvočno ozadje. Trkala za drugi del sestavljajo hkratni zven ksilofona in triangla. Instrumenti: Flavta, klarinet, klavir, violina, viola, čelo, trkala (lesene klade, bič, triangel in ksilofon). UMETNIK / UMETNICA

The text of Mouchette is from the website www.mouchette.org, a strange and curious world created by Mouchette, a “nearly 13 year old girl” AKA Dutch Artist Martine Neddam (www.neddam.org). Vocal parts marked Spoken need not necessarily observe the exact written rhythms (go for a natural spoken rhythm). “Buzzing fly” sections are ad lib moments where players can make their best buzzing fly imitations on their instrument; fast, rhythmically irregular chromatic passages on wind instruments and fast


tremolos while sliding up and down a string on string instruments would be a place to start. These parts should be heard as a soft, slightly annoying background texture. Percussion for part II plays Glockenspiel and Triangle simultaneously. Instrumentation: Flute, Clarinet, Piano, Violin, Viola, Cello, Percussion (Wood Block, Whip, Triangle and Glockenspiel). artist

Martine Neddam is a visual artist who has been working with internet virtual characters who lead an autonomous artistic existence in which the real author remains invisible.

Neverjetnost hekerske meditacije Romunija / Bolgarija, 2015 predmet

Tekoče stopnice in njihovo vzpenjanje in spuščanje predstavljajo srž mojega projekta, ki sem ga imenovala »Hekerska meditacija«: gre za v videu dokumentirano poseg v različne javne prostore, kjer sem se s tekočimi stopnicami prevažala gor in dol v pozi za meditacijo. »Ali je meditacija posebna duhovna praksa ali le nenavadno vedenje v vsakdanjem življenju? Ali bi bila meditacija lahko način za vdor v javni prostor? Ali je spokojnost način za vdor v dnevno rutino? Vdor v um. Vdor v življenje. Vdor v Vesolje.« Zdaj je mrtev člen tekočih stopnic postavljen v galerijski prostor. Ta vodi dobesedno v nezmožnost vdora v meditacijo. Zastavlja se vprašanje: ali res lahko vdremo v nekaj, ali se vdor zgodi zgolj v naše razumevanje stvari in dejanj? UMETNIK / UMETNICA

Mihaela Kavdanska je intermedijska umetnica, kreativna direktorica in raziskovalka. Rojena je bila v Bolgariji, živi in dela pa v Romuniji in v Avstriji. Od poznih devetdesetih let ustvarja samostojne in kolaborativne projekte ter jih razstavlja in izvaja v galerijah, muzejih, plesnih centrih in gledališčih po Evropi, ZDA in Aziji. Mihaela Kavdanska ustvarja žive predstave in procesna umetniška dela, pri čemer stalna izmenjava perspektiv in kontekstov igra pomembno vlogo. V zadnjem času jo zanima kreativno ravnovesje med umetnostjo in tehnologijo, s poudarkom na prepričljivih audiovizualnih instalacijah in interaktivnih plesnih predstavah, kjer glavno vlog igra enovitost intermedijev.

The Impossibility of Hacking Meditation Romania / Bulgaria, 2015 object

The escalator and its up&down movement are vital for another project of mine called “Hacking Meditation”: a filmed intervention in different public spaces, where I was going up and down, sitting on the escalators, in a meditation posture.


“Is meditation a special spiritual practice or a usual one in everyday life? Could meditation be a method of hacking the public space? Is the stillness a way to hack the daily routine? Mind Hack. Life Hack. Hacking the Universe.” Now, a dead piece of an escalator is placed in a gallery space. It leads literally to the impossibility to hack meditation. The question is: do we really hack something or we just hack our own concepts of things & actions? artist

Mihaela Kavdanska is an intermedia artist, creative director & researcher. Bulgarian born, lives & works in Romania and Austria. Since late ’90, she’s been working on personal and collaborative projects, exhibited and performed in galleries, museums, dance centers & theaters around Europe, USA & Asia. Mihaela Kavdanska creates live experience and process based art works, where the constant exchange of perspectives & contexts plays an important role. Lately, she’s been concerned with the creative balance between art and technology, focusing on immersive AV installations and interactive dance performances, where the intermedia oneness plays main role.

Nataša Berk, rojena leta 1978 v nemškem Böblingenu. Po zaključku izobraževanja v Ljubljani kot fotografinja je odšla v Avstrijo, kjer je leta 2005 diplomirala na dunajski Akademiji za likovno umetnost. Berkovo lahko opišemo kot ironično-provokativno avantgardistko eksistencializma z abstraktnim instinktom. Zanjo je značilno, da je zvrsti ne omejujejo, zato deluje na številnih področjih umetnosti. Dela so večinoma povezana s fotografijo, videom, tiskom, objektom, tekstom, glasbo in zvokom, ter ročno in digitalno ilustracijo. Pomemben del njenega umetniškega izražanja je tudi performans. Njene akcije so spontane, včasih brez začetka, a z zaključenim koncem – in obratno. Kot državljanka sveta sedaj živi in dela povsod. — natasaberk.blogspot.de

Nataša Berk, born in 1978 in Böblingen, Germany. After completing her education as a photographer in Ljubljana, she left for Austria, where she graduated from the Vienna School of Visual Arts in 2005. Berk can be described as an ironic-provocative avant-garde artist of existentialism with an abstract instinct. Her works is characterized by not being held back by the limitations of categorization, and is therefore active in a number of aspects of art. Her works predominantly deal with photography, video, print, objects, text, sound and music, and manual and digital illustration. Performance is also an important part of her artistic expression. Her actions are spontaneous, sometimes with no beginning, but always with a clear end, and vice versa. As a citizen of the world, she now lives and works everywhere. — natasaberk.blogspot.de

Nina Bric prihaja iz Nove Gorice, je samozaposlena v kulturi kot slikarka, po izobrazbi pa profesorica likovne umetnosti. Ukvarja se s slikanjem, kiparjenjem, ilustracijo, risanjem stripov in izdelovanjem lutk. Razstavljala je v Ljubljani, Novi Gorici, Velenju, Mariboru in Biljah, izven Slovenije pa v Gorici, Trstu (oboje ITA) in Banja Luki (BiH). Oktobra 2013 se je udeležila umetniške rezidence v Rigi, Latviji, pri stripovski reviji Kuš!. Sodelovala je pri več predstavah v Slovenskem mladinskem gledališču Ljubljana in Lutkovnem gledališču Ljubljana, z režiserjem Matjažem Pograjcem, scenografinjo in kostumografinjo Barbaro Stupico in igralko in režiserko Asjo Kahrimanović. Živi in dela v Ljubljani. Njen stil je zelo prepoznaven, pisan, stripovsko - pop nadrealističen, z motivi golih žensk in plišastih otroških muck, medvedkov in zajčkov. V njenih slikah pa so nakazani namigi na grozljivke, na svet erotike, nasilja, tudi spolnega nadlegovanja. Njeno delo, ki je poudarjeno ironično in posmehljivo, nastaja iz prepletanja ljubkosti in strašljivosti, končni učinek pa je predvsem želja po podiranju tabujev, poigravanje z erotiko, seksualnostjo in dvoumnostjo, premagovanje resnobnosti z zafrkljivostjo. — ninabric.si title

Nina Bric is from Nova Gorica, a freelance artist working as a painter, and has an art teaching degree. Her work includes painting, sculpture, illustration, graphic novels and puppetry. She has exhibited her work in Ljubljana, Nova Gorica, Velenje, Maribor and Bilje, and internationally in Gorizia, Trieste, (Italy) and Banja Luka (BiH). In October 2013 she joined an artist residency project in Riga Latvia, with the comic magazine Kuš!. She has contributed her work in multiple performances at the Slovenian Youth Theater in Ljubljana, and the Ljubljana Puppet Theater, with directors Matjaž Pograjc, scenographer and costume artist Barbara Stupica, and actor and director Asja Kahrimanović. She lives and works in Ljubljana. Her style is very characteristic, vivid, comic-pop surrealist, featuring the naked female form and felt fuzzy kittens, baby bears and bunnies. Her pictures make allusions to horror movies, erotica, violence and sexual harassment. Ironic and derisive, her work comes from a combination of cuteness and eeriness, and the end effect is mainly the desire to tear down taboos, play with eroticism and ambiguity, conquering serious subjects with humor. — ninabric.si

Majhen časovni stroj, ki potuje prečno na krajše razdalje ZDA, 2015 predmet

Dogodke, ki se dogajajo skozi čas, je včasih težko razumeti kot celoto, verjetno zato, ker je njihov časovni okvir zelo obsežen ali pa, ker preprosto ne pritegnejo naše pozornosti. Predstavljanje časovnih sekvenc v obliki slike, ki si jo je mogoče subjektivno ogledati v določenem trenutku, omogoča prikazovanje časovnih vzorcev. Če predstavimo časovno sliko kot vizualno poezijo in ne kot znanstveno vizualizacijo, spodbudimo pristop z domišljijo in ne z analizo. Čas uniči vse, kar nam je drago, a vsakdanje preživi. V svetu domišljije se čas giblje v nepričakovanih smereh. UMETNIK / UMETNICA

Na področju računalniške umetnosti ustvarja že več kot trideset let. Pri svojem delu uživa v disfunkcionalnem pripovedništvu, lažnem simbolizmu, intermedijih, programskem čarovništvu, hroščarstvu in družabnih vmesnikih.

A small time machine, of the sort that travels sideways for short distances USA, 2015 object

Events occurring over time may be difficult to perceive as a whole, possibly because the temporal window they occupy is very large or because they don’t draw our attention. Presenting time sequences as an image, subjectively available in a single moment of time, provides a means of displaying temporal patterns. Presenting a time-image as visual poetry rather than as scientific visualization engages imagination rather than analysis. Time erodes all we prize but the ordinary survives. In imagination, time moves in unexpected directions. artist

Paul Hertz is an independent artist and curator who teaches art history and studio courses in new media at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He has worked with computer-mediated art for over thirty years.


In his work, he delights in dysfunctional fortunetelling, faux symbolism, intermedia, code sourcery, glitching and social interfaces. His work has been exhibited in many international media festivals and symposia. — paulhertz.net podoba / image

Svetilka je eden najbolj spregledanih avtonomnih predmetov. Njena vloga in funkcionalnost sta zmanjšali njen pomen do te mere, da je več sploh ne opazimo.


Ne samo, da je svetilka soustvarila večino najboljših del človeštva, ampak je tudi sama po sebi umetniško delo, poleg tega, da jih razsvetljuje. Je enako pomembna kot zrcalo v fotoaparatu ali oči, um in celo prsti fotografa, hkrati pa služi kot še eden v vrsti dokazov, da človek s svojim ravnanjem stvari jemlje za samoumevne. Ljudje si običajno ogledajo to, kar so si prišli ogledat, vse ostalo pa je v njihovi veleumni zavesti le del ozadja oziroma kulisa. Tak primer je avtonomni SOUMETNIK. UMETNIK / UMETNICA

CO-ARTIST India, 2015 object

The lamp is one of the most unrecognised autonomous objects. Its role and play of functionality has reduced its importance to the point where we no longer notice it. Not only has the lamp been the contributing artist in most of the best art humankind has ever witnessed, but it has been a work of art itself as well as it lit them up. It is like the mirror of the camera or even the eyes and mind and even fingers behind it and another reminder of Human behaviour and tendency of taking things for granted. People generally see what they come to see and everything else plays the part of the background or the backdrop in their ever functioning grand minds, and one of them is the autonomous CO-ARTIST. artist

In her artistic practice, Noall questions the duality of public and private experiences and where the two diverge or collide. By taking familiar, existing imagery and experiences, then altering and distorting them physically and visually, through various changes in scale, material, medium and context, Noall exposes and questions the value system of the “Original”.

Zmešanost To je lasna igla. Vsak dan nosim lasno iglo. To je moj okras in moj spominek. Je del mene, a nikoli ne pozabim, da je z mano. Včasih ne opazim, da sem jo ovila okrog las oziroma da so se moji lasje ovili okrog nje. Ta predmet sem ustvarila z lastnimi rokami kot del nekakšnega zavestnega rituala v terapevtske namene. Modra barva predstavlja mojo predanost racionalni misli, rdeča pa označuje mojo ranljivost na čustvenem področju. Kontrast med tema dvema entitetama oblikuje moj značaj v osebo, za kakršno se pretvarjam, da sem. Istočasno po eni strani ustvarja moje toplo veselje, po drugi strani pa ledeni obup. Lasna igla povezuje moje jutro in večer, moj dan in mojo noč. Služi kot spomin na moje življenje in prejšnjo smrt. Nudi mi odklop od vsega stvarstva... Moja lasna igla je moj ritual. Je moj mešalnik misli. Zmešanost

Prvo je namenjeno promociji ustvarjanja dokumentarnega filma (Makedox), drugo pa promociji umetnosti in kulture (Compressor). Po drugi strani v svoje delo vključuje tudi aktivizem, in sicer z ustvarjanjem individualnih stop-motion animacij. Zato bi lahko rekli, da njeno delo sega od manekenstva in scenografije do kamere, montaže, zvočne obdelave, produkcije ter režije. Poleg tega je tudi ena polovica dueta, ki se ukvarja z oblikovanjem nakita iz stare elektronske opreme. Njena linija nakita pod blagovno znamko “Mei Ro” je trenutno razstavljena v specializiranih trgovinah v Ljubljani, Beogradu in Skopju.

Scatterbrain Slovenia, 2015 object

Scatterbrain This is a hair pin stick. I wear a hairpin stick every day. This object is my ornament and my souvenir. It is part of myself, but yet I never cease to feel its presence. At times I am unaware if I wrap it around my hair or my hair wraps around it. This specific item is created by my own hands as a form of a conscious therapeutic ritual. The blue color symbolizes my rationality, whereas the red stands for my emotional vulnerability. The contrast of these two entities shapes my character into the person I act to be. It simultaneously produces my warm joyfulness and my icy depression. Connects my morning and my evening, day and night. Reminds me of my life and previous death. Detaches me from all existence... My hair pin is my ritual. It is my scatterbrain. Scatterbrain.

Protokol za nadlegovanje para-kuratorja Slovenija, 2015 predmet

Leta 2002 je umetnik Douglas Irving Repetto ustvaril delo “How to Annoy a Plant”. Naredil je vmesnik, ki je, glede na upogibanje rastline, izmenoma prižigal osvetlitev z leve in desne strani. Rastlina je zavoljo želje po svetlobi sizifovsko spreminjala svoj položaj, vselej znova oropana cilja. “Protokol za nadlegovanje para-kuratorja” je para-iteracija Repettovega dela in poklon rastlinski subjektnosti, ki se znajde v krajini lastnih teženj, interesa avtorice in skrbnosti intervencij para-kuratorja. S tem izpostavlja eno manj vidnih komponent umetnosti, ki vključuje žive sisteme: nenehno, pretežno nerazumljeno pogajanje med človeško intenco in ne-človeškimi akterji. Pričujoče delo nagovarja idejnega snovalca festivala, para-kuratorja Igorja Štromajerja, da prevzame vlogo digitalnega vmesnika Repettovega dela. V času trajanja razstave grah in para-kurator manifestirata frustracijo situacije, v kateri sta prisiljena igrati predmet. UMETNIK / UMETNICA

Dr. Špela Petrič, univ. dipl. biol., mag. um., v umetniškem delu prepleta naravoslovje, nove medije in performans. Zanimajo jo različni vidiki antropocentrizma; rekonstrukcija in apropriacija znanstvene metodologije

Para-curator Annoyance Protocol Slovenia, 2015 object

In 2002, artist Douglas Irving Repetto created the work “How to Annoy a Plant”. He created an interface that intermittently lit a light from the left or the right side, depending on how the plant’s movements. Eager to move towards the light, the plant kept repositioning in an effort not unlike the labor of Sisyphus, repeatedly robbed of its goal. “Para-curator Annoyance Protocol” is a para-iteration of Repetto’s work and an homage to plant subjectivity, caught in a landscape of its own tendencies, the author’s interest and the careful intervention of the para-curator. This highlights one of the less visible components of art, which includes living systems: constant, generally misunderstood negotiations between human intent and non-human protagonists. The work invites the festival’s creator, para-curator Igor Štromajer, to take on the role as the digital interface of Repetto’s work. During the exhibition, the pea plant and the paracurator are manifested in the frustrating situation where they are forced to play as subjects. artist

Dr. Špela Petrič, BSc. Biol., MA Arts, employs natural science, new media and performance in her artistic expression. She is curious about different aspects of anthropocentrism; reconstruction and appropriation of scientific methodology in the context of society; living systems and artistic life; and terra-biology (ontologic approach to evolution and terraforming life on Earth). She expands her work with art/science educational programs and workshops aiming to inform and sensitize the interested public, young people in particular. Projects: Skotopoeza (performance, 2015), PSX Consultancy (installation, 2014), Naval Gazing (habiton, 2014), Voyager/140 AU (installation, coauthor Miha Turšič), Solar Displacement (Installation, 2013), Humalga: Towards the Human Spore (research/artistic project, co-author Robertina Šebjanič, 2012/13), Circadian Drift (installation, soavtorica Maja Smrekar, 2012), CTCAG recognition (performance, 2011), Cladocera (installation, 2010). — www.spelapetric.org

V miniseriji del, poimenovani Univerzalni Objekti: Opazovalci, avatarji opazujejo različice samih sebe, ki so razstavljene v galerijskem okolju. Avatarji so simptomatični, resnični, prisotni, a obenem tudi odsotni v eteričnem bivanju. UMETNIK / UMETNICA

Tatjana Tanja Vujinović Kušej v svojih delih, kjer raziskuje kulturo igre, poetičnost hrupa in antropomorfnost, uporablja računalniške aplikacije, prilagojeno elektroniko in objekte. V njenih delih se hrup pojavlja kot agent srečnih naključij, ker omogoča nova odkritja. Njena dela so navdahnjena tudi z odnosom med hrupom in signalom, kot ju dojema teorija informacij. Od leta 1997 so bila njena audiovizualna dela, digitalni printi in instalacije so bili razstavljeni v številnih galerijah in muzejih, kot so Muzej sodobne umetnosti v Strasbourgu, Kunst Palast Muzej v Düsseldorfu, Muzej sodobne umetnosti v Denverju, Kunsthaus v Meranu, Mednarodni forum Medienturm v Gradcu, galerija Cornerhouse v Manchestru, Muzej sodobne umetnosti v Istanbulu, MMC Kibla v Mariboru, Galerija Kapelica v Ljubljani.

With her works, Tatjana Tanja Vujinovic Kušej explores the culture of playfulness, the poetry of noise and anthropomorphization, using software applications, custom electronics and objects. In her works, noise appears as an agent of serendipity, enabling new discoveries. Her works are also inspired by the relationship between noise and signal as described in information theory. Since 1997, her audio-visual works, digital prints and installations have been exhibited at numerous galleries and museums, such as the Strasbourg Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, the Museum Kunst Palast in Düsseldorf, the Museum of Contemporary Art - Denver, Kunsthaus Meran, the Medienturm International Forum in Graz, the Cornerhouse Gallery in Manchester, the Istanbul Contemporary Art Museum, MMC Kibla Maribor and Kapelica Gallery in Ljubljana.

Bukov hlod Republika Slovenija, 2015 predmet

Poln objekt, bistveno večji od človeka. Monumentalen. Težak. Ležeč, horizontalen. Miren. Valju podoben, vendar ne geometrijski. Monokromatska ovojnica lubja. Rahlo rdečkast ton prereza. Krožna organska struktura letnic. Toliko o tem, kakšen je, kako deluje na nas. Če začnem nanj obešati kontekst, izgubi svojo avtonomnost. Seveda pa bi še bolj izgubil svojo avtonomnost, če ga organizator iz logističnih razlogov ne bi uspel spraviti v galerijo. Potem bi bil razstavljen zgolj simulaker, njegova avtonomnost pa nima več kaj dosti opraviti z avtonomnostjo prikazanega objekta. Pri simulakru služi objekt zgolj kot izgovor, maska, ki skriva vsiljeno avtonomnost avtorja simulakra. Razlike se zavemo, če bi se morali npr. z enim od njiju pogreti v hudem mrazu: z drvmi iz bukovega hloda se lahko grejemo celo zimo, medtem ko si z njegovo sliko niti rok ne moremo pogreti. Vendar se tega zavemo šele v trenutku LASTNE eksistenčne nuje. Ko gre za tujo, vzkliknemo “Ojoj!” in kliknemo “Naprej”. Za to obnašanje, značilno za informacijsko družbo, obstaja celo izraz: “ojojizem”. Obnašanje, ki spominja na čase, ko so ljudje z užitkom drli gledati javne usmrtitve ... UMETNIK / UMETNICA

Svetovno prepoznaven je v časih net.arta postal s projekti kot so Hommage to Mondrian, Nice Page in net.art.trade. V njegovih poznejših projektih še naprej nastopajo tehnologije, pri čemer do njih vzdržuje kritično distanco. Kot podaljške svojega telesa uporablja stroje, ki jih sam izdela; nadomeščajo mu priključenost na Matrico, ki je njegovo telo organsko ne prenaša. S strojem Lalaboro je rezkal v les In/Form/Acije, ki so prevodi znanih spletnih strani v kodiran jezik, ki ga lahko razvozlamo le z merjenjem globine lukenj. Spet drugič pa je s flomastrom na lesene deske ustvarjal raster črt, nastalih kot post-postprodukcija znanih fotografij. Les je zanj najbolj avtonomen material, zato tudi želi, da ga na tej razstavi predstavlja v svoji najbolj monumentalni obliki. Trenutno končuje napravo, ki bo znala ustvarjati predmete iz plastike, pri čemer svoje delovanje prenaša iz umetnosti, kot jo pozna zahodni umetnostni sistem na področje avtonomnih predmetov, kot sta jo npr. poznali Japonska in Kitajska tradicionalna kultura. Posveča se tudi poučevanju. — www.spiller.si

Beechwood Log Republic of Slovenia, 2015 object

A solid object, much larger than a human. Monumental. Heavy. Prone, horizontal. Peaceful. Resembling a cylinder, but not perfectly geometric. Monochromatic bark layer. Slightly ruddy cross-section. A circular organic structure of the tree rings. So much for what it’s like and how it affects us. If I start hanging context on it, it loses its autonomy. Of course, it would lose even more autonomy if the organizer were to be unable to get it inside the gallery for logistical reasons. In that case, only its simulacrum would be displayed, and its autonomy would no longer have much to do with the autonomy of the object on display. With the simulacrum, the object serves merely as an excuse, a mask concealing the forced autonomy of the author of the simulacrum. We would know the difference if we were forced to use one of these objects in dire cold: beech firewood would keep us warm all winter while its portrait would not even be enough to warm our hands. However, we would come to this realization only in the moment of our OWN existential need. When other people’s needs are at stake, we exclaim “Oh, dear!” and click “Next”. There is even a word for this behavior, characteristic of the information society: “oh-dear-ism”. This type of behavior is reminiscent of the times when people would clamor to relish in the sight of public executions... artist

He reached global acclaim in the times of net.art with projects such as Hommage to Mondrian, Nice Page and net.art.trade. His later projects still feature technologies, where he himself keeps a critical distance. He uses his self-made machines as extensions of his body; they replace his connection to the Matrix, which his body rejects organically. He used his Lalaboro machine to make wood carvings of In/Form/Ation, composed of translations of familiar websites in code language, which can only be decoded by measuring the depths of the holes. Another time, he used a magic marker to draw a line grid on wood panels, which were created as a result of post-production of familiar photographs. He considers wood to be the most autonomous of materials, and wants it to represent him in this exhibition in its most monumental form. He is currently in the final stages of work on a device which will be able to produce plastic items. This way, he moves from art as it is known to the western art system into the space of autonomous objects, as they were used in Japanese and Chinese traditional culture. He also devotes his time to teaching. — www.spiller.si

Seme Hrvaška / Italija / Slovenija, 2015 predmet

Seme kot umetniško delo narave. Seme kot vir energije. Seme kot potencial za življenje. Seme kot začetek rasti. Seme kot ideja. Prepričana sem, da vsako umetniško delo zraste iz semena ideje. To seme predstavlja toliko idej. Prvič: iz semena zraste naša hrana, s katero izpolnjujemo naše primarne potrebe. Pred kratkim sem slišala misel “Vsaka kultura je dobra, a najboljša je agrikultura.« in ta modrost je ostala z mano. Z njo se popolnoma strinjam, saj brez semen, iz katerih je zrasla naša hrana, ne bi bilo nobene druge kulture - hrana je namreč naša primarna potreba. Iz semen zrastejo tudi rastline, ki nam dajejo kisik. Iz semena izhaja tudi naša vrsta. Vse seme nosi potencial za življenje. Življenje nam daje možnosti za rast. Telesno, psihološko, čustveno, duhovno, umetniško in drugo rast. Ideje, ki so posejane v nas, so polne potenciala, moramo jih samo posaditi in nato negovati, da lahko zrastejo.

I believe every work of art starts with a seed of an idea. This seed represents so many ideas. First of all, the seed from which we grow our food to satisfy our primary needs. I recently heard the phrase “Every culture is a good culture, but the best culture is agriculture” and it has stayed with me since. I agree with it completely because there would be no other cultures if there were no seeds that produce food as our essential need. Or seeds that produce plants that give us oxygen. Or seeds that produce our own kind. All seeds carry potential for life. Life gives us opportunity for growth. Physical, psychological, emotional, spiritual, artistic and all other. Ideas that are seeded in us are all full of potential, we must only plant them in order to give them life, and nurture them so they can grow. artist

Abakus in njegova senca Slovenija, 2015 predmet

Duchampove ready-made predmete lahko razumemo kot štiridimenzionalne projekcije tridimenzionalnih entitet, ki poleg lastne materialnosti nakazujejo predvsem idejno (miselno) ali virtualno dimenzijo. Abakus kot ready-made je virtualen na dveh ravneh: kot analogno računalo in kot senca, ki je vizualna manifestacija njegove lastne virtualnosti. Senca je labilen odtis in nesnovna podvojitev, ki metaforično izpostavi inteligibilnost in nesnovnost.

The Shadow of Abacus Slovenia, 2015 object

Duchamp’s ready-made objects can be understood as four-dimensional projections of three-dimensional entities, which, in addition to having their own materiality, allude mainly to the conceptual (abstract) or virtual dimension. The abacus as a ready-made object is virtual on two


levels: as an analog computing device and as a shadow, which is the visual manifestation of its own virtuality. The shadow is an unstable imprint and an immaterial duplication which metaphorically highlights intelligibility and the immaterial. artist

Uršula Berlot studies painting at the Ljubljana Academy of Fine Arts and Design and at the Paris Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts. She defended her doctoral thesis at the Ljubljana Academy of Fine Arts and Design, where she is currently teaching. In her artistic practice - luminous and kinetic installations - she explores the forms of mental landscapes, simulated nature and the relationship between the body and technology. Uršula Berlot won the Schering Stiftung (Berlin, 2007) grant for her artistic work, as well as the Pollock-Krasner Foundation award (New York, 2005) and the Henkel Art Award, KulturKontakt Austria (Vienna, 2004). Among other venues, her work was shown in Kunstlerhaus Bethanien (Berlin, 2007), BA-CA Kunstforum Tresor, Vienna (2005), Moderna Gallery, Ljubljana, Haus der Kulturen der Welt (Transmediale, Berlin, 2008), Revoltella Museum (Trieste, 2013), Rijeka Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (Media Art – Angles and Intersection, 2009). — www.ursulaberlot.com podoba / image

Opaziti je, da so sodobni predmeti na udaru interneta. Prav tako je opaziti, da interneta ni več. Odločil sem se narediti post internetni predmet, ki s svojim pojavom ne vabi prav k ničemer, a ob prisotnosti internetne tehnologije morda ... Ta post internetni predmet lahko preživi ukinitev živega interneta, a zahteva dostop z mobilno napravo. To besedilo ne bo razvrednotilo predmeta in niti slučajno ne bo umaknilo potrebe po deljenju fizičnega prostora z njim. Srečati ga je treba v živo. UMETNIK / UMETNICA

Ćosić je že od leta 1994 aktiven v politiki, književnosti in umetnosti, svoja dela pa je v tem času razstavljal in objavljal na različnih forumih. Prepoznaven je po svojem provokativnih in pionirskih pristopih na področju net.arta. Kot enega izmed začetnikov net.arta je Ćosića pritegnilo ustvarjanje v ASCII kodi skozi dolgotrajno obdobje (1996-2001) raziskovanja na področjih low-tech estetike, ekonomije, ekologije in arheologije medijev, teksta in programske kode, uporabe presledkov v informacijah ter fluidnosti in neskončnih možnosti transformacije. Tako so nastala dela, kot je Zgodovina umetnosti za slepe, ASCII Unreal (umetniška igra), ASCII kamera, ASCII arhitektura in ASCII zgodovina gibljive slike. Je tudi soustanovitelj projektov, kot so Nettime, Syndicate, 7-11 in Ljubljanski laboratorij za digitalne medije. Med najpomembnejšimi prizorišči, kjer so bila predstavljena njegova dela, so: Videotage, Hong Kong; Media Artlab, Tel Aviv; Beneški bienale; MIT Medialab; Walker Center, Minneapolis; Postmasters, NYC; Kunsthalle, Dunaj; LAMoCA, Los Angeles; ICA, London in Beaubourg, Pariz. www.ljudmila.org/~vuk english

It appears that contemporary objects have come under fire from the internet. It also appears that the internet is no more. I have decided to make a post internet object, whose appearance itself


does not invite the observer to do anything at all, but in the presence of internet technology, perhaps... This post internet object can outlive the termination of live internet, but requires access with a mobile device. This text will not diminish the value of the object, and will in no way eliminate the need for the observer to share the physical space with it. It should be encountered live. artist

Active in politics, literature and art, Ćosić has exhibited, published, and been active since 1994. He is well known for his challenging, groundbreaking work as a pioneer in the field of net.art. One of the pioneers of net.art, Ćosić became interested in ASCII code during a long period of research (1996–2001) on low-tech aesthetics, the economy, ecology and archaeology of the media, on the intersections between text and computer code, on the use of spaces in information, its fluid nature and infinite convertibility. Out of this came History of Art for the Blind, ASCII Unreal (an art game), ASCII Camera, ASCII Architecture and ASCII History of Moving Images. He is a co-founder of Nettime, Syndicate, 7-11, and Ljubljana Digital Media Lab. The most notable venues, among many others, include Videotage, Hong Kong; Media Artlab, Tel Aviv; Venice Biennial; MIT Medialab; Walker Center, Minneapolis; Postmasters, NYC; Kunsthalle, Vienna; LAMoCA, Los Angeles; ICA, London and Beaubourg, Paris. www.ljudmila.org/~vuk podoba / image

Avdioobčutljiva kocka delavnica za elektroniko Slovenija, 2015 predmet

Avdioobčutljiva kocka je vezje, ki prek tranzistorjev lovi zvočni signal in ga pretvori v vizualno. LED diode utripajo glede na dane zvočne strukture oziroma impulze, ki se povezujejo prek zvočnega izhoda. Utripanje lučk je podobno kot vsesplošno družbeno delovanje zaznavni iznos, soodvisen od vnaprej danih vzorcev. Avtorici bosta med odprtjem festivala nadgradili analogno elektronsko vezje z Arduino mikrokontrolerjem. ČIPke smo skupnost žensk, ki hodimo na ČIPkaste delavnice in se ukvarjamo z elektronskimi vezji, odprtokodnim programjem in drugimi gikastimi eksperimenti. Zelo rade imamo nove prijateljice, ki se nam lahko kadarkoli pridružijo. ČIPke smo iniciativa, ki raziskuje situacijo žensk v znanstveno tehničnem kontekstu in intermedijski umetnosti, odpira prostor komuniciranja o pogojih delovanja žensk na tem področju ter hkrati organizira praktično-izobraževalni program, ki vključuje različne delavnice odprtokodnih programov, njihovega programiranja, grafičnega oblikovanja, video montaže, elektronike in robotike. Poleg večdnevnih delavnic, ki jih vodijo priznane lokalne in mednarodne mentorice, so za vse udeleženke ČIPk na široko odprti prostori Rampa Laboratorija na Kersnikovi 4 vsak ponedeljek ob 17. uri. ČIPkarska srečanja so namenjena ČIPkastem klepetu (vsak prvi ponedeljek v mesecu) oziroma mentorskemu svetovanju kustosinj Ide Hiršenfelder in Saše Spačal pri razvijanju samostojnih projektov; enodnevnim vodenim delavnicam krajšega formata Od ČIPke do ČIPke (vsak tretji ponedeljek v mesecu), na katerih ena ČIPka ostalim predaja pridobljena znanja, in ČIPkastem odprtem laboratoriju, ki je namenjen medsebojnemu učenju in nadgradnji znanj, ki so jih udeleženke pridobile samostojno ali na drugih delavnicah.

Audiosensitive cube electronics workshop Slovenia, 2015 object

An audiosensitive cube is a circuit that captures audio signals through transistors and transforms them into visual signals. LED diodes flash to the sound structures or impulses, which are then combined through the audio output. The flashing of the lights, similar to how the general social mechanisms work, is a perceptible output co-dependent on predefined patterns. During the festival opening, the authors will upgrade the analog electronic circuit with an Arduino micro-controller. ČIPke is a community of women who socialize at ČIPke workshops and work with electronic circuits, open-source programming and other nerdy experiments. We love to see new girls join us in the fun. ČIPke is an initiative that explores the women’s situation in a scientific and technical context and intermedia art, opens up a discourse on the conditions for women’s involvement in this field, and organizes a practical training program that includes different open-source programming workshops, graphic design, video editing, electronics and robotics. In addition to multi-day workshops led by established local and international mentors, all female participants of ČIPke have full access to the Rampa Laboratory on Kersnikova 4, Ljubljana, Mondays at 5pm. ČIPke meetings are a space for ČIPke chats (every first Monday of the month) and mentor consultation from curators Ida Hiršenfelder and Saša Spačal, who offer advice in the development of independent projects; short one-day workshops “Od ČIPke do ČIPke” (ČIPka to ČIPka), where one ČIPka passes her knowledge onto other ČIPkas; and the ČIPke open laboratory intended for mutual learning and upgrading knowledge which the participants gained on their own or at other workshops. artist

besides, smaller than a single pixel networked performance France / Germany / Slovenia, 2015 object

besides, is a series of online experiments by Annie Abrahams and Martina Ruhsam, who investigate the performative potential of computer-mediated performance. besides, smaller than a single pixel is a live onlineperformance specifically conceived for the Pixxelpoint Festival. By listening to each other’s gestures (in a visual and acoustic sense), the authors choreograph each other despite being geographically far away from each other: Annie Abrahams in Munich, Martina Ruhsam in Nova Gorica. As an assemblage of text-fragments and daily objects this live-performance is a series of linkages and open relations between words and banal things. The interface frames the encounter of objects and live-speech. This nonimprovised real-time composition spiced with a lot of coincidences explores the performativity of objects in an interface usually framing the heads of humans. artist

Annie Abrahams has a doctoraal (M2) in biology from the University of Utrecht and a MA2 from the Academy of Fine Arts of Arnhem. In her work, using video and performance as well as the internet, she questions the possibilities and limits of communication in general and more specifically investigates its modes under networked conditions. She is known worldwide for her netart and collective writing experiments and is an internationally regarded pioneer of networked performance art. From 2002 till 2005 she taught at the University of Montpellier in the Arts Department. She curated the project InstantS, the Breaking Solitude and Double Bind webperformances series for panoplie.org (2006-2009). In 2012 she co-organised the first Cyposium and published an article on webcam mediated communication and collaboration in JAR #2. In 2013 she started with Emmanuel Guez the ReadingClub project. In 2014 she published two books: from estranger to e-stranger; and CyPosium - the book, co-edited with Helen Varley Jamieson. — www.bram.org

ONO KOT AKTANT predavanje Mestna galerija Nova Gorica predmet

Kaj lahko stvari počnejo? In kaj lahko počnemo mi zaradi njih? To predavanje odpira razpravo o filozofskih konceptih in umetniških delih, ki zadevajo storilstvo in oporečništvo stvari. V predavanju bo predstavljena kritika sveta, v katerem se subjekti soočajo z (nemara) pasivnimi predmeti. V predmete usmerjene filozofije poskušajo vzpostaviti enako obravnavo stvari in ljudi, vendar se tu postavlja vprašanje političnih posledic takšnega dejanja. Predstavila bom svoje razmišljanja o postantropocentričnih teorijah dejanj/storilstva in razmišljala o novi vlogi človeka v svetu, kjer človek ni več glavno merilo stvarstva. UMETNIK / UMETNICA

THE IT AS ACTANT lecture Nova Gorica City Gallery object

What can things do? And what do they make us do? This lecture introduces philosophical concepts and artistic works dealing with the agency and recalcitrance of things. It critiques a conception of the world in which active subjects face (supposedly) passive objects. Object-oriented philosophies have attempted to put things on equal footing with human beings but what might be the political implications of such a move? I will reflect on post-anthropocentric theories of action/agency and ponder about


the new role of the human in a world in which the human being is not the measure of all things. artist
