Mina Fina: Za vse je pravi čas / If only for the joy of my sadness
4. 4.–9. 5. 2017, the TAM-TAM Street Gallery at Vegova (opposite Glasbena matica)
Tuesday, 4 April, at 5 pm
The project Za vse je pravi čas / If only for the joy of my sadness is based on the visual density of the space formed by the artist with the silhouettes of plants and human bodies. The plants, with their pristine appearance, simplicity of form, intertwining and complexity build up impassable, overgrown and lush landscapes in a contrasting environment of light and shadow. They include the flat and empty silhouettes of human figures, stripped of detail, but with an emphasised body language, in unnatural and played-out poses.

Presentation of the art publication Last Mango in Paris
Thursday, 4 May, at 6 pm, Lecture Room (MGLC ground floor)
The publisher Look Back and Laugh is announcing the release of a new art publication entitled Last Mango in Paris. The book deals with the visual exploration of the hidden and strange world of plants and greenery. It contains the work of twenty-two local and foreign fine artists. Their graphic compositions, printed in the risograph technique, invite you to enter the bizarre corners of the green forest with them, which your parents warned you about when you were a child.
