Screening of a new curated video programme Happy and merry … from the DIVA Station archive on Wednesday, 15 December 2021 at 7 pm at Galeriji Simulaker Gallery in Novo mesto.

The programme is the result of a collective selection of videos and films from the DIVA Station archive, which was prepared especially for the Simulaker Gallery at the end of the second year of the corona period by the SCCA-Ljubljana team Lara Plavčak, Vesna Bukovec in Peter Cerovšek. In it, we included playful and sarcastic works with a distinct creative imagination, which at times flirts with the absurd. The end of the year is a time of joyful celebration and a time when we proverbially look to the past and imagine the future. We live in a time when reasons for optimism and joy need to be re-invented over and over again, which could be the task of this selection of moving images as well.

Artists: Ana Čigon, Nataša Berk, Mladen Stropnik, Nataša Skušek, Zvonko Čoh & Milan Erič, Ana Nuša Dragan, Keiko Miyazaki, Sašo Vrabič, Sašo Sedlaček, Tomaž Furlan

Iz arhiva Postaje DIVA

The International Festival of Arts, Technology and Science Kiblix 2020-2021 hosed the DIVA Station archive with a series of events in April and May. In a series of four events under the common title From the Archives of the DIVA Station, we prepared a series of online video projections on the computer and online art, perception of physicality in a virtual environment, and transmitted feelings. The purpose of online projections is to get acquainted with works from the digital archive, get to know individual authors, and create a space for joint reflection, discussion, and knowledge exchange. The conversations were moderated by Irena Borić and Vesna Bukovec.

15. 02. 2021Back2Back: Mila Peršin

Back2Back: Mila Peršin

Back2Back is a new type of event within the curated Videospotting programs, where we invite domestic and international authors at various stages of their creative path to present their own production and establish a dialogue with works of their choice from the DIVA Station archive. We will invite mostly artists who do not yet have their works in the archive. Before the screening, we will prepare short conversations with them, which will shed light on their own authorial focuses and reveal why they were addressed by selected works. The program was designed with the aim of opening the archive to artistic research, which, together with the presentation of their own practice, establishes interesting parallels to classical curatorial approaches. Mila Peršin was the first to present herself in this role.

The first to present herself in this role was Mila Peršin, a young artist working in various artistic fields.

The program includes videos by artists: Small but dangers, Mila Peršin, Ana Nuša Dragan, Miha Vipotnik, Sašo Sedlaček, Kristina Kokalj, Danilo Milovanović, Tanja Lažetić, Jasna Hribernik, Katarina Rešek (KUKLA)
Before the screening Peter Cerovšek, head of DIVA Station was talking with Mila Peršin.
