Jernej Čuček Gerbec
Jernej Čuček Gerbec’s artistic practice is not concerned with medium or concept but with observations. Observations of the common, conventional and the wide-spread. The artist finds poetics in the simple acts of life, recurring conversations, pictures of random passersby and quotidian struggles. The end result is never a simple act of documentation but varies between installation, photography, video, text and sculpture. In his work he tries to highlight the things that may go unnoticed, while at the same time making the end message ambiguous and unclear as to retain its former allure.
Saša Nemec's practice spans between exploration of new technologies and use of age-old techniques. From mending a loose button to creating garments with 3D scanning technology. Her graduation research and fashion collection was presented in the eponimous first solo exhibition titled ‘Untitled’ at the Tir gallery in Nova Gorica (2013). Later on she continued her textile based research through the Repair-a-thon project, a repeating event held internationally of which the purpose is to inform and engage the community about responsible consumption and repairing. The event has been presented, amongst others, at the Pixelache Helsinki Festival (2017), Helsinki Design Museo (2018), The Fashion Colloquium in Arnhem (2018) and will be presented as a larger installation at this year’s BIO26 design biennial in Ljubljana. The artist continued the research as part of the Collective Intelligence working group, with the work Threading Gibellina, presented at the Orestiadi Foundation, Gibellina as part of the Manifesta12 Collateral Events and at the Il Traffico project, part of the Manifesta12 5x5x5 events (2018).
