Their recent projects investigate the phenomenon of man-made landscapes around the world, where the making and marking of landscape (as a form of spatial modification) goes hand in hand with heightened state violence and the over-exploitation of resources. Recent exhibitions include Musée des civilisations de l’Europe et de la Méditerranée, Marseille (2019), Metropolitan Art Centre Belfast (2018), Frac des Pays de la Loire (2018), MUMOK, Vienna (2017), NGBK Berlin (2017), The Jewish Museum, New York (2016), and 13th Istanbul Biennial, to name but a few.
Anca Benera & Arnold Estefan will present their work on 2 July at the CC Tobačna 001.
CC Tobačna 001 is nominated for the best art gallery by “Ljubljana in Your Pocket City Guide”. The annual vote, organized by “Best of Ljubljana”, takes place on the national Culture Day honouring the great nineteenth century poet and cultural icon, France Prešeren.
“Dante Buu is a young Montenegrin artist currently participating in the artist-in-residency programme in Ljubljana. He comes from Rožaje – a town in Sandžak, situated on the border between Montenegro, Kosovo and Serbia. Producing needlepoint tapestries and various kinds of needlework, Dante creates art that is in complete contrast with the typical patriarchal mainstream."
