The project is part of a series of solo presentations of Slovenian artists. MycoMythologies is a series of ontogenetic mythological stories, video essays and machines with which the artist examines the planetary metabolism and, specifically, the question of how mushrooms can help humans think about the possibilities of cooperation and connection.
In her creative pratice Neža Knez uses various media, such as audio, video, photography, drawing and performance. She graduated in Sculpture and received her masters diploma at the Academy of Fine Arts (ALUO) and Design. Through the event or interventions in urban spaces, she is questioning the social, economic, and political aspects of our society.
In 2021, Tobačna Gallery will continue its look at smaller projects by important artists of the middle and younger generations that, by employing experimentation and new production approaches, importantly contribute to the vitality of Slovenian and international creativity. The year will begin with Maja Smrekar’s exhibition, which will be followed by the presentations of Constanze Ruhm, Polonca Lovšin, Danilo Milovanović, Saša Spačal and Neža Knez.
Tobačna Gallery is presenting works of Viktor Bernik at the exhibition "HA, HA, HA!". Bernik takes on contemporary society with playfulness and humour, shifting back and forth between the fields of painting and those of drawing, video, graphics as well as spatial installation, intervention and events.
As lots of axolotls spend most of their lives as model organisms in scientific laboratories, the axolotls that were hatched at Sarah's aquarium are descendants from axolotls that had been lucky to leave the scientific laboratories. As they have been reproducing very successfully Sarah has now quite a few baby axolotls and she would be glad to give some of them for adoption.
