Contact as the Foundation for Creativity, Experiential Gestalt Therapy Workshop with Tomaž Flajs

Thursday, 2 April, 14.00–21.00

The workshop is conceived on the experiential learning method and based on the phenomenological principles of Gestalt therapy. Contact, as the basic concept of the workshop, is understood as a sensor-motor interaction between man and his environment, which enables the survival and growth of the human organism as well as the development of a sense of one’s own identity and awareness of otherness. This will be explored through experiential exercises and experiments. One of the main attributes of human contact as a process of formation and decomposition of perceptual and motor entities (gestalts) is precisely creativity, which can be awoken when one is ready to face a new situation with openness and uncertainty. The goal of the workshop is to explore how exactly something, which may seem like a blockage and interruption in creatively adapting to a situation, can become the foundation for our creativity if we manage to find a support for turning anxiety into excitement.

The workshop is conducted by Tomaž Flajs, educator and supervisor of Gestalt therapy.

The workshop is taking place at MGLC and includes a half-an-hour break. Drinks and refreshments will be provided (water, tea, biscuits, fruit). Attendance is required for the whole duration of the workshop. The number of participants is limited to a maximum of twelve. Admission is 5 EUR (ticket to view the exhibition at MGLC).

Advance bookings using the application form (enclosed) until the available quota should be made by writing to lili.sturm@mglc-lj.si

Warmly wellcome!

Helena Tahir, Somewhere Near
31. 1.–8. 3. 2020

Helena Tahir represents the youngest generation of artists to deliberately explore the properties of classic printmaking techniques both in terms of form and content, hence actively co-creating the image of contemporary graphic creativity on the Slovenian art scene. The exhibition presents drawings and prints made over the recent years, some of which are here presented to the public for the first time. Helena Tahir’s graphic prints are characterised by the loquacious interweaving of various images stemming from the imagination, brimming with meaningful associations and historical references that must be carefully observed in order to make them easier to understand.

OPENNING OF THE EXHIBITION

Agnes Momirski, siXren (Verbum Medicinae)

Friday, February 21, at 6 pm, MGLC Švicarija

The opening will include a performans by Agnes Momirski, siXren (Verbum Medicinae).

Agnes Momirski is a multimedia artist, who is currently making new work as part of the residency programme at MGLC Švicarija. The artist, who has been based in Rotterdam over the past several years, explores the voice and language through a posthumanist lens in her art practice. She uses the two to explore the various methods of secret, ancient and healing rituals. These phenomena are processed by the artist in multimedia performative actions, music performances and videos.

siXren (Verbum Medicinae) has two different materialisations; it is a music performance that will premiere at MGLC Švicarija, and it is an ambient and experimental video installation. The piece was made in collaboration with beepblip (sound) and Brina Vidic (visual and costume design).

Curator: Miha Colner.
