All paths lead to dreams (2021)

Curator: Anne Tassel
SCCA-Ljubljana, 2021
Duration: 54’
Premiere: VideoGarden.8 (VideoDvorišče.8), Škuc Gallery (9. 9. 2021)

Neven Korda, in his work Angelic Wreath at Speed ​​(2006), explores artificial worlds and questions reality. Sašo Sedlaček, in the video Picnic on a Dump (2004), uses the ugly environment of the landfill for a picnic and combines artistic actions in an extreme environment. In the short film Woodman’s Bizzare Dream (2009) we explore the dreamier sphere created by Matevž Jerman and Aleksander Pejić which when viewed transfers the dreamy tension into reality. In the video performance Code I (2000) by the artist Duba Sambolec, the artist deals with automated cliché phrases, which in the performance lose their original meaning, deconstruct, become annoying, automated and go through this same cycle again and again. The performances thus touch on the individual’s will and control in rebellion and the fight against pressure and abuse. Video Water Glove (2015) from Nataša Prosenc Stearns combines and explores the real hand with an impossible water glove and thus creates a new, in real life impossible phenomenon. In her work Ballabende (1995), Jasna Hribernik takes us into romanticized contrasting worlds that respond and intertwine with different musical genres. Video Pissing (2002) by Martina Bastard, Mateja Ocepek and Nataša Skušek transcends the gender spectrum with a simple standing urination campaign.
