Workers by Anka Krasna
Last year I began to paint Slovene workers today. Factory of Art – Majšperk, which once produced wool and quality textile, has stopped operating like almost all the rest. I used tracing paper as my material, because its translucence allows me to show the simultaneous doubleness of character and emotional reaction of the individual. Thus are my workers (400 so far) shown as individuals with expressions of sadness, disappointment, anger, rage… beneath and above as they must appear if they want to keep their meager jobs and not fall out of favor with their employers – their superiors, owners, so they are without personality, exressionless, have no mouth because they cannot share their opinion, have only numbers on their work clothes – since they are only numbers – sewn on by hand, which hints at labour camps. I will place them on the floor of the gallery space, so that they completely cover it and we will have to walk on them. In order to entice visitors to walk on them, I will place on the walls some sketches, a few lines of text, also small mirrors numbered like the workers, so that the visitors will see themselves in them and think upon seeing that image.

Artsidethebox by Jiri Kocica

The project “Art side the box”, upcoming presentation on 11th of October, 2016 at 12-14 contemporary,  is dealing with geopolimers, gels and some hidden or semi-hidden sculptures.
All of them will be hidden in kind of cubic forms. Some of the figures will be visible through micro tomography. The statues will be made with a 3D program connected to a 3D printer.
There will also be gels for analyzing of DNA or proteins.
Some of the figures will be equipped with lights and with colour surface changing by being touched. This kind of sensitive to temperature material we already know from juwellery rings, which are detecting our emotions with the help of the temperature of our skin. Hidden figures will appear as a consequence of the change of the colour. to translucid tough.
Some of the sculptures will be allowed to touch as well as to open it. The recipient will be able to uncover the hidden contents, the interventional side of the project.
For the visitor it will be possible, with that kind of display, to the geek behind the curtain of a creative process. Jiri Kocica is focusing the transparency of procedure and the relation to parts of science. Some of these things we know quite well as users, but we never have asked about the backgrounds and inventions of the development.
Jiri Kocica´s art work is evoking a kind of genuine interest for the process of creation, in a wide range of interpretation.

Mind the Gap by Camila Lobos

Curated by Oscar Sanchez

Mind the gap is an intervention that speculates about the relationship between border and periphery. It consists of four concrete blocks arranged in the gallery as a barrier. The installation acts as a boundary that divides the exhibition space and generates a margin that defines two areas and the relationship inside-outside /here-there.
At the top of the cement blocks the words are carved:
 “El limite a la periferia tanto como la periferia necesita al limite”
The vacuum generated carving cement is filled with photoluminescent gel that absorbs daylight and glows in the dark.
Das Projekt von Camila Lobos, “Beachte den Spalt” bezieht sich auf die Kluft zwischen Innen und Aussen, zwischen hier und da. Es ist eine Intervention die sich auf den Rand, die Periphere bezieht und die menschliche Positionierung darin festhält.
Die Installation besteht aus 4 Betonblöcken. die wie eine Barriere angeordnet sind. So kann die künstlerische Intervention als Grenze fungieren.
Die Inschrift aus lumineszierenden Farben besagt:
“Die Notwendigkeit soviel zu begrenzen, wie die Begrenzung braucht.”
Die im Beton befindlichen Gravuren sind mit einem lumineszierenden Photogel ausgefüllt, welches das Tageslicht absorbiert und in der Nacht leuchtet.
