ZINE VITRINE │ Matic Flajs: White, Pink, Blue, White
Matic Flajs se predstavlja z zbirko štirih zinov (Ko Vans jebe, Pink Demon, Nedokončančkoti in Church). Mlad ilustrator s svojo prepoznavno risbo, v katero vpeljuje elemente stripa, ustvarja fantazijske svetove in like. Zanimajo ga različni načini stilizacije, s katerimi spretno dovrši svoje ilustracije. Njegove upodobitve vzbujajo naklonjenost, sam pa ima še raje tiste, ki so obsojene na sovraštvo. Močan vpliv na njegovo delo imata rolkarska in punk kultura, kar lahko opazimo tudi v njegovi naklonjenosti k estetiki grdega.
Matic Flajs (1994) živi v Ljubljani, kjer je maturiral na Srednji šoli za oblikovanje in fotografijo na smeri Grafičnega oblikovanja. Kasneje se je vpisal na Fakulteto za dizajn, kjer zaključuje svoje izobraževanje. Deluje kot samostojni oblikovalec znotraj rolkarske in BMX kulture in je del kolektiva, odgovornega za Hinterland Magazine. Redno sodeluje s podjetji Obsešn, Flow Ramps, Relax Crew Skate Co., Ziggi, Evolution BMX in drugimi.

ARTIST PER MONTH │ Annie Charland Thibodeau: The Weight of Enchantment
Through sculpture and installation, Annie Charland Thibodeau constructs vast spaces of contemplation, where altered forms coexist and enter into dialogue with the architecture of the exhibition venues. The artist will present platforms designed specifically to resonate with the built environment’s mosaic stone flooring, subverting it to summon forth new architectural-like elements in our panoramic imagination.
Annie Charland Thibodeau lives and works in Quebec City, where she studied sculpture. Her work has been presented at various events and solo exhibitions in Quebec, notably at the Centre Bang (Chicoutimi), the Centre Regart (Lévis), AXENÉO7 (Gatineau), and the Sherbrooke Museum of Fine Arts. She has also participated in residency programs in Ireland (2015), Italy (2016) and at the Hafnarborg Museum in Iceland (2018). In November 2019, she started her one-month residency at the Open Studio in the DobraVaga Gallery.
