DRAUGHT | P L A T E AU R E S I D U E : ALMA MATER

07 June 2018 — 02 September 2018
At the core of the duo P L A T E AU R E S I D U E’s installation is an ice mass, or more precisely, a stalactite brought by the artists from an ice cave to the museum and kept there as a museum exhibit. This is a reminder of the rapid disappearance of ice as a consequence of global warming, which has affected ice deposits in Slovenia as well; at the same time, the artists were guided by their fascination with ice and its optical properties, which led them to experiment and identify creative potential in a block of ice.

HEGEL’S BEGRIFF | Bara Kolenc, Mirt Komel, Atej Tutta

11 January 2018 — 28 January 2018
Hegel’s Begriff is an installation that questions the possibility of a multisensory (visible-tactile-aural) and at the same time intellectual experience of Hegel’s concept of Begriff. Hegel’s Begriff refers both to an abstract concept and a quite concrete grip; the meaning of Begriff includes a duality that traverses conceptuality as such: on the one hand, there is the tendency towards mental abstraction and, on the other, the tendency towards sensuous concretisation.
