Discussion and opening: Tuesday, 8 September 2015, at 7 p.m., Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova
Duration: 8 September 2015 — 1 November 2015
Curator: Igor Španjol
You are kindly invited to the opening of Anže Sever’s exhibition and a talk with the artist on Tuesday, 8 September 2015 at 7 p.m. at the Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova. The exhibition is part of the Draught series, conceived to present young artists and fresh new ideas.
In his minimalist installations of the last two years, Anže Sever’s focus has been on visible reality and the hidden potentials of space, which he explores with technology, light, and sound, and tests with disruptions, duration, and motion.
His latest work, a video and sound installation Duplication/Replication, brings together the main features of his production to date. It examines the field of the immaterial or the virtual as something that arises from the interactions of quite material relations, in this case, human interactions and the interactions of individuals with or inside the exhibition space. With the video of exhibition visitors Sever tries to produce a parallel reality in which the viewers feature as both the actors and the observers of themselves and their interactions with others. The image and the sound from the space are duplicated to bring to our attention and awareness the direct communication and relations we have with one another as individuals, as well as our attitude toward ourselves, our words and image.
Anže Sever (born in 1991 in Slovenj Gradec) is a senior student at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana. He lives and works in Ljubljana.
The exhibition is co-produced by the Association DUM-društvo umetnikov.
The Draught series is curated by Igor Španjol.
