EXHIBITION "THINGS" BY BARBARA JURKOVŠEK AND PROJECT "FROM HERE TO THERE" BY IŠTVAN IŠT HUZJAN
The project THINGS, with its seemingly innocent and at the same time grotesque content, creates irony and parody of the spirit of our time, in which the modern man is caught, and, in the metaphorical sense, shows how a man in his struggle for survival and craving for immortality puts at risk not only his own existence but also that of other biological species; from his own essence, he creates psychic and physical hybrids.
Huzjan's work, on the one hand, results in atmospheric, temporary site-specific installations and, on the other, deals with the format of the book he created as a more permanent object. His essential themes are appropriation of his own childhood and the transitional time of the recent European history.
When: Ongoing – April 2015, Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Where: Embassy of The Republic of Slovenia, 2410 California Street, NW, Washington, D.C.
