Zdravko Horvat - Anti Conversation Drill (Work In Progress)
The reality show Big Brother has engrossed my attention whit ability to turn banal everyday event into trivial happening, transforming viewers into voyeurs and participants into exhibitionists, impulsive automatic speech of mediocre men, breakdown of communication when words are striped of there meaning. I am manipulating fragments of the show in a mounting, deconstruct language and reconstruct it in a new way with dislocating images in order to confuse viewer which expects one static image.
Maja Rozman - in between
In between explores the idea of the imaginary place, a place which is experienced by the immigrantes which are seeking a new life in other countries/cultures, but still carrying a shadow of their native country/culture. The drawings are inspired by the text extracted from the conversation about the in between thus re-evaluating memories and inquiring our perception of places and borders.

Love, power, freedom, creativity, hate, sadness, beauty and time - all that is art, in different forms, shapes, colors and techniques it can be both a weapon and medicine for the heart and soul. It has shaped and will continue shaping our lives and our planet, making it a better, more interesting and worthy place of living.
