The travelling exhibition SLEDI/SPUREN
reached its final destination at the Gallery Loža in Koper, Slovenia
In 2014 we are counting hundred years after the burst of World War 1 – we are just in time for reflecting the changes Europe went through, rethinking where we are coming from and heading to.
100 years ago the southern railway, connecting Vienna and Trieste, was one of the most important communication channels in Europe.
12 artists (among them myself): six from Austria selected by Slovene curator Vasja Nagy, and six from Slovenia, selected by Austrian curator Denise Parizek, deal with this traditional route, with building and destroying identities, with their ancestors and generations to come…. at the traveling exhibition SLEDI /SPUREN.
Its way leads along the tracks of the railway from Vienna to Venice, connecting 3 countries, 6 stops, 12 artists and 2 curators.
My INLAY– zig tick tack, zig zag
….taken from the traditional lace pattern from Idrija, it recalls a rail track with its bends. Through this, the artist has managed to create a metaphor for intimate links between individuals divided by distance. (Vasja Nagy, excerpt from review)
CORDIALLY INVITED to the Gallery loža. The exhibition is on view till November 2, 2014.
