Through their participation in artist residencies, workshops and collaborative exhibitions, Fokus Grupa have consistently aimed towards creating a synergy with the gallery space. Their current show is conceived in the same vein, whereby they augmented their ongoing project "Invisible Matter" with "East Art Map", a research project by the Slovenian art collective Irwin.
Fokus grupa has been active since 2012. In its work, it tries to establish a critical framework for reading the artistic, economic and political surroundings in which it operates. It lends and learns from design, architecture, curatorship and writing, while often broadening its working team with collaborators from other fields.
Rona Stern creates her work by connecting daily images found in her immediate environment using the syntax of marketing and commercial language.
