Solo exhibition
Fokus Grupa
30. 10. 2018–7. 12. 2018
The Croatian artist collective Fokus Grupa (est. 2012) uses texts, objects, and images in their work, which they combine in installations and interventions. Through them, they focus on researching contemporary art and their public manifestations, especially regarding power relations as well as the wider economic and social context.


With a keen sense for drawing and for use of materials, Anna Zvyagintseva captures traces of daily life, encounters, coincidences or autobiographical facts in her sculptures, drawings and film works. Ukrainian artist Nikita Kadan uses his artworks to compel us to think about the manipulations of history that occur in modern political and historical discourses.

The CC Tobačna 001 is entering the new year with the exhibition project "Adagio for Space", by the Israeli artist Moran Victoria Sabbag. The gallery’s programme will continue with solo art projects. During the first six months of the year, we will present the Bulgarian artist Kamen Stoyanov. His work focuses on the questions of identity, migration, historical definitions and on topical issues regarding social and cultural development. After him will be Slovenian artist Boris Beja, who uses art mediums to create connections among various contents, with a strong emphasis on social criticism.

“The artist Moran Victoria Sabbag, who arrived to the Museum and Galleries of Ljubljana (MGML) residency centre from the Israeli Center for Digital Art Holon, presented us with the interesting audio-visual project Adagio for Space, at the end of her residency. “Adagio is a musical term for playing slowly, at ease. By ‘dressing’ up the Tobačna gallery building in a white and thermosensitive foil, I wanted to emphasise the dimension of tranquillity; the white colour soothing the mind. I also wanted to indicate the feeling of claustrophobia, a cage, represented in the field of classical music by the stage. I wanted to break the traditional organisation of the audience and the orchestra”, the artist explained.
