About the exhibition:
This selection presents four video works, which were created by eight Slovenian authors of the younger and middle generation. All artists take part in the representative and testimonial exhibitions of contemporary Slovenian art and they are also active in the international sphere. The joint characteristic of the selected video works is a conceptual research of contemporary society’s peculiarities and of individual comprehension of the urban city reality. All works are based on personal narratives and intimate experience. In three of the videos this is expressed by a form of individual memory of the past, which is continually intertwined with excerpts from the present. The fourth video deals with the future or the ideal image of home. Similar starting points are explored differently by each of the four authors with the use of different formal approaches. The results are four formally and conceptually completely different videos of four different cities, each of them opening new aspects of experiencing a contemporary city.
