19.20 & 20.20


Matej Andraž Vogrinčič: Trip (5’)
@Cukrarna Gallery, Courtyard, Poljanski nasip 40 

The evocatively titled Trip is a happening by Matej Andraž Vogrinčič, the second part of a trilogy concerned with the mental and physical space of Cukrarna and its surroundings. For the spatial intervention On the Way, the artist used the crushed brick tiles left over from the renovation of the building, while for his new project, he collected thousands of maple seeds in the vicinity of Cukrarna over a period of almost two years. Before our eyes, the artist will transpose these so-called flying seeds, with their specific shape and ability to fly, into a suspended state of travelling around the space. The seeds will "fly out" of the time collector and attempt to elicit transience, time and travel in our minds through their poetic journey as the beginning of something new and unrepeatable.

Maximum number of participants: 30. Registration required: info@cukrarna.art.


20.00


Performance 
@Space for Art NÓT, Vodnikov trg 5a

Sanja Nešković Peršin: The Moment Before (60’)
Curated by: Yasmín Martín Vodopivec

Following the traces of her earlier works, artist Sanja Nešković Peršin ventures into the most mysterious regions of artistic creation. Using performative film and live performance, she imaginatively creates a sensual cacophony, exploring in this realm the longing and trauma that inevitably accompany the deeply rooted pursuit of excellence.

Curated by: DIVA Station team (Vesna Bukovec, Peter Cerovšek, Robert Kuret)

What are the modus operandi for survival in today's neoliberal world? Every day, we strain and rush to do many unnecessary tasks that cause us stress and pain and require physical and mental effort from us. All this to earn enough to pay the bills. We are trapped in our daily routine, locked in digital boxes, obsessed with scrolling through endless digital landscapes, horrified and simultaneously fascinated by the many disasters and the world's imminent end. Wouldn't we instead spend our time collectively building alternative paths that aren't necessarily shortcuts and doing work that has a beneficial impact on both ourselves and the community? The actual modus operandi should be solidarity. 

VideoGarden (VideoDvorišče) is a programme of curated screenings and talks on art, video, and film. In the spring-summer period we step out of the dark cinema and the cold gallery space into the open air. In collaboration with Škuc Gallery we organize screening events in its inner courtyard.

DIVA Station is an online and physical archive that SCCA-Ljubljana has been developing since 2005 with the aim of researching, documenting, archiving and presenting art film, video and new media art.

In case of rain, the screening will be held in the gallery.
