Friday, 7th July, 1 PM, Plečnik House

The collaboration of two unique projects, the DobraVaga Gallery and Plečnik House, presents fresh artwork by artists of the younger generation who are active on the local and international scenes. The main initiative for such cooperation is the location of DobraVaga beneath Plečnik’s arcades at Ljubljana’s Central Market, and the resulting link to Plečnik’s architectural heritage. The idea to feature contemporary authors in the historic home of Jože Plečnik is thus a tribute to the Slovenian architect, at the same time offering a new look at him, his work and his life. Titled JOŽE, the exhibition emphasises a personal note, as the authors present their own artistic interpretation of the architect through their art print. The participating artists are Eva Mlinar, Gašper Kunšič, Jure Brglez, Lealudvik, Matija Medved, Nastja Mezek, Nevena Aleksovski, Nina Mršnik and Peter Ferlan.

ZINE VITRINE | Urška Alič: A Light Here Required a Shadow There
In her work, Urška Alič focuses on the possibilities and limitations of photography as a medium for recording light. In doing so, she explores the relations between light and shadows, overlaps, transparency, the physicality of the analogue medium, the selection of detail, content and compositions, transferring and continuing the above-mentioned principles with illustration and graphic printing, particularly risograph printing. In the images, she seeks the complementarity of light-dark relations and the distinct rhythm of the composition of captured motifs.
