Izbor: Iza Pevec

Glave, ki jih je začel upodabljati v osemdesetih, se razkrajajo v poudarjeno linijo, ki se začenja in zgosti v točki desnega očesa. Lahko poznejše psihograme razumemo kot zgoščeni ekvivalent tej odločilni gesti prvih zarisov v površino? Ali pa kot serijo minimalnih izrazov impulza, s katerim se začne neko delo in iz praznine nastaja nekaj? Njihova serialnost asociira na nenehno začenjanje, nenehno iskanje smisla in vztrajanje, beleženje prezence, ki se skoraj vedno prikaže na naslednji zaplati bele nalepke. Ta drobna, ponavljajoča se ekspresivnost vzpostavlja na videz paradoksalno napetost Mršnikovih del – ekspresija ostaja »ujeta« v sistem pravokotnikov in nadaljevanja, ki to ekspresijo še poudari. Med konceptualnim, bolj idejnim pristopom in likovno ekspresijo umetnikove poteze torej ni nujno velikega prepada.

Ivo Mršnik, rojen leta 1939, je leta 1968 diplomiral na oddelku za slikarstvo Akademije za likovno umetnost v Ljubljani. Istega leta se je zaposlil kot likovni pedagog na Osnovni šoli Vič v Ljubljani, hkrati pa do 1970 nadaljeval študij slikarske spe­cialke pri prof. Maksimu Sedeju. Zatem je nadaljeval tudi študij grafične specialke pri prof. Riku Debenjaku in prof. Marjanu Pogačniku. Na grafični specialki je diplomiral leta 1972, na slikarski pa 1975 pri prof. Gabrijelu Stupici. Od leta 1978 je bil zaposlen na Pedagoški fakulteti v Ljubl­jani, od 1998 kot redni profesor za risanje in grafiko z metodiko. 1. oktobra 2005 se je upokojil. Decembra 2011 mu je Univerza v Ljubljani podelila naziv zaslužni profesor. Med pomembnejša priznanja, ki jih je prejel za svoje delo, sodi tudi nagrada Ivane Kobilca za življenjsko delo, ki mu jo je leta 2018 podelilo Društvo likovnih umetnikov Ljubljana.

 

Iza Pevec, rojena leta 1987, je končala študij umetnostne zgodovine in primerjalne književnosti ter je samozaposlena v kulturi. Občasno pripravlja razstave, predvsem pa piše o umetnosti in kulturi. Bila je sodelavka Radia Študent, od leta 2014 je sodelavka Radia Slovenija – programa Ars, sodeluje tudi z revijo Fotografija. Končala je tudi dvoletni program Šole za kuratorske prakse in kritiško pisanje v okviru SCCA Ljubljana.

Rabbit Hole: Accompanying Programme

International photography exhibition accompanied by guided tours

Today the real of photography is a field in which billions of photographs linger, lives, reproduces themselves, flickers with the frequency of the digital screen, ornaments themselves with likes, comments and remarks, and constantly battles for the fleeting attention – which seem so fleeting that it seems that fort his »new« photography one does not even need the »old« photographic attention – because it is being replaced by some other more profound, for some even ominous, attention of the eye of the apparatus of algorithms. Does it even matter nowadays how we as humans see and experience photographs? Is it the more pertinent question what does the Google see? Indeed, what do the “glasses” see? It seems as we would be looking through the transparent screen, as a “window to the world” (as was long the description of photography) whereas in fact we are looking at the screen – at the veil of transparency, shrouding the reality. If one would be able to go through the glasses – what kind of the world would one find there?

The Rabbit Hole projects simultaneously question the present-day reality and unveil the ways of its technological embeddedness while hinting on the possibilities of its future permutations.

The accompanying programme will be in Slovene with an exception of 27 February event which will be held in English and will be happening in M3 + M4 Conference Hall.

Rabbit Hole

Photography, Magic and Reality
International photography exhibition

Held as part of the Slovenia 2050 Festival

Exhibition opening: 20 January 2020 at 20.00



Curators (Membrana): Jasna Jernejšek, Jan Babnik

Since the invention of photography, our relationship with the medium – the image-taking social apparatus and photographs as objects – has always been invested with a set of beliefs in the potent, almost magical power of photography.

From the early belief in the power of photography to ‘steal souls’ to the present-day belief in its power to ‘steal data’, our understanding of the origin of the medium’s special power has changed and evolved – from being anchored in the perception of photography as a magical emanation of reality to currently stemming from its embeddedness in data systems (and its power of manipulation) within the omnipresent apparatus of social surveillance.

In practices as diverse as photojournalism and spiritualism, photography has been invested with the notion that it can reveal more than the human eye, piercing the reality and turning unseen into seen, absent into present, distant into close, transgressing both the limitations of human perception and physical limitations of space and time. That is builds illusory and fantastical landscapes, whilst dispelling illusory perceptions of the world. Photography has created a new – expressly photographic – dimension of seeing and has never ceased to excite our explorative spirit in probing into the unknown, invisible, incomprehensible, exaggerated, enchanted – i.e. the world of magic.

This special power of photography has persisted to this very day, with the difference that the onetime ‘analogue’ magic has been replaced by a new, much more elusive, uncontrollable and inscrutable magic of algorithmic equations, machine vision, virtual and enhanced realities – the magic of our dystopic future. Photography has never been denied its original mystical aspects – and thus continues to be one of the most magical modern-day technologies.

Instinct

The international photography exhibition that explores the relationship between animals and humans.

In collaboration with Membrana 

The group exhibition Instinct represents the works of an international team of artists, who explore how the relationship between animals and humans is ideologically emphasized or concealed with images, and how the concept of instinct defines the process of photography and the photographic representation.

The artists thematize the different aspects of animal representation and address the complex attitude of humans towards animals, their coexistence and the significance of all of this from different points of view: from the conceptual treatment of pets and their respective mythologies (Alexandra Soldatova), the anthropomorphic representation of animals in popular culture and the phenomenon of interspiecies subcultures (Anja Carr), the commercialization and aestheticization of animals, the wild and nature itself (Vanja Bučan), the technological modification of animal extracts in the pharmaceutical industry and the strategies for their advertising (Daniel Szalai), to taxidermy as a standard practice for the conservation of animal carcasses and their classification for the purpose of research and exhibition (Klaus Pichler).

Our daily life is overflowing with animal imagery that shape our attitude towards them, from countless photographs of domestic and exotic animals on social media, to fashion accessories with animal patterns. We surround ourselves with anthropomorphic animal toys, we attribute human traits to animals (and vice versa), we accept them as equal members of the family, we identify with them. Animals drive our consumer habits and lifestyle choices and also represent national and ideological symbols.

Jasna Jernejšek

With the cultural marginalization of animals, as John Berger describes the relationship of humans towards animals that took place throughout the 20th century, animals have become consumer goods. The coexistence and the magical belief that shaped the human attitude towards animals has long ago moved aside, making way for the capitalistic production process. Today, humans need animals mainly as a source of food, use them as amusement and spoil them as pets.

Zambratija Ship

On Mt Olympus Festival

An archetypal sewn boat from the Adriatic Sea

The exceptional sewn boat is the most ancient example of an entirely sewn boat ever found in Mediterranean, as it has been dated between the last quarter of the 12th c. and the last quarter of the 10th c. BC. The sewing technique employed for the assemblage of the planking and the related water tightness system are unparalleled. Due to its architectural characteristics, the type of assembly and the early date of the boat, the ship of Zambratija could be considered the archetypal example of sewing boats identified within the Adriatic geographical zone.
