Rene Rusjan
overview exhibition
Rene RusjanWhat I talk about when I talk about...
4. 3. 2014–13. 4. 2014
This exhibition, "O čem govorim, ko govorim o..." (What I talk about when I talk about...) in the City Art Gallery Ljubljana is without doubt the most extensive and most complex display of Rene Rusjan's creations and work to this day. It reveals the fundamentals of her poetics, which are, predominantly, raising awareness by means of real, direct activity. Transforming her art into a personal culture, what we might, perhaps, call art as a form of self-giving, or an act that manifests within the creative process as an ongoing event that spans the years, a process, authorial meditation perpetually in the making.
Dušan Mandić

Specific layout of the City Art Gallery Ljubljana comprising several floors has led to careful consideration of the most harmonious spatial organization and to the final decision to use only one floor, on which the exhibited works from several periods will be brought together into an autonomous visual whole.

Artists presented at the exhibition: Joni Zakonjšek, Igor Škafar, Tina Mauko, Meta Krese, Milan Golob, Franc Novinc, Stojan Kerbler, Aldo Kumar. Is it even still possible to find and deliberate on happiness in contemporary art, in a world full of fear and uncertainty? Is happiness still present, has it disappeared, is it reappearing or waning away, does it bare its image or does it cover it with other, worthier and more dramatic themes and subjects?
