Invader, Prints on Paper

The exhibition is on view at Tivoli Mansion.

The anonymous French artist named Invader is a phenomenon in the field of street art and has become a global art star over the last twenty years. His basic medium of expression is the urban street mosaic, later he started working in printmaking as well. In Ljubljana, he presents himself with a survey exhibition of prints, but his maps (guides to the invasions) and films are also on view.

Sonja Vulpes, Limbo
10.00-18.00
The exhibition is on view at Tivoli Mansion.

Sonja Vulpes is a printmaker and artist of the younger generation, who completed her studies in Art Pedagogy at the Faculty of Education in Ljubljana. She works in fine art printmaking, drawing, zines and tattoos. She presents herself at MGLC with an exhibition, which she entitled Limbo. She chose this unusual word to try and describe the visual and mental expression of the "clownish" self-portraits in the exhibition. The works are large-scale prints made using the techniques of collagraphy and screen printing. The exhibition speaks honestly about the precarious states of the individual in today's society, about one's hardships and doubts.

ONLINE

We have prepared a short film about the artist's creative process.

The Stojan Batič Memorial Studio
10.00-18.00
Permanent display at Švicarija

The Stojan Batič Memorial Studio (1925–2015) is on view on the ground floor of Švicarija. It is dedicated to the sculptor, who also worked in Švicarija for several years. The artist's memorial studio is a reconstruction in his memory. It is almost completely furnished with original objects, tools, furniture, sculptures of the artist and their drafts, as well as with the artworks of his friends, famous Slovenian artists.

EVENT

Brane Zorman: The Spirit of the Trees | Touch
20.00
In front of Švicarija

The live FM sound event speculates on the sound component of tree life and questions how each part of the plant intertwines with the colony of organisms and the forest community. The author Brane Zorman will present a composition with recorded and processed sounds of trees, which are created both within the organism itself and when touched by humans and the environment. Visitors to the sound event will listen to a dramatic musical fable, charged with natural and amplified sounds that energetically merge and intertwine.

Please, reserve your place: cona@cona.si

The event is a partnership project of Cona, Institute for Contemporary Arts Processing and MGLC Švicarija.
