Photomonograph Elsewhere Here of Klavdij Sluban's exhibition

The largest ever mid-career retrospective exhibition of Klavdij Sluban's Elsewhere Here at the Jakopič Gallery is accompanied by an extensive photomontograph in Slovenian and English, printed at LUart Ribnica. The publication presents a selection of photographs that highlight more than three decades of Sluban's work. It is available also in a limited collector's edition with a signed analogue photograph by Klavdij Sluban.


The photomontograph is introduced by an expert text by Dr Marija Skočir, the curator of the exhibition and editor of the publication. In her words, Klavdij Sluban is “an artist who has no home but is at home wherever his spirit can take anchor in a soothing unrest”. “Even if painful, this unrest is extremely creative. (…) For Sluban, the photographic process is a necessity of life, tied to a need to change his position of being present; the real work only begins when it is time to edit, select and eliminate. Sometimes this happens much later, perhaps after he has returned from another journey through the same places,” she writes.

The bridge between the curator's text and Sluban's photographs is a poetry cycle by the acknowledged Slovenian poet Boris A. Novak' entitled Photography is an Art That Saves Yesterday Forever in the Heart. Novak and Sluban share a long-standing friendship, a passion for the French language, and the love of the poetic and critical of the real world.
