Katarina Toman Kracina Big picture
20. 3. 2019–3. 5. 2019
The first overview exhibition of Katarina Toman Kracina’s work focuses on the painter's small and large-scale paintings on canvas, and her objects. Characterising her works are complex connections with the creation of a full spatial design. The artist's works preserve memories of individual events and fulfilled wishes.She leads a multifaceted life combining motherhood, partnership, work, household chores and art: what she observes and admires, what she creates, and what is subject to her restoration endeavours. Despite being a trained painter, she often incorporates sculpture and spatial installations into her paintings and drawings. Her exhibitions are typically ambient installations inviting spectators into her personal and emotional spaces.

Dejan Kaludjerović Pogovori: Ljubljana
26. 4. 2019–7. 6. 2019
"I think that we are, that most Slovenians are very humble, um, that we're nice, that we know how to take care of the environment, most of us do." (Alina, 10 years old)Growing up is political; we are conditioned ideologically and affectively by the social communities that surround us. Referring to this, Dejan Kaludjerović’s art project Conversations: Hula-Hoops, Elastics, Marbles and Sand (2013–present) reminds us of the fact that childhood is not spared from political reality and political thought however much this period of life, often referred to as the age of innocence, may be devoid of social responsibility for the things that happen and will continue to happen in the future.
