Lightning Guerrilla: Sound
Through their works, the artists exposes the relationship between sound and light within artistic installation, object, space, as well as the relationship between artistic lighting installation, the space and the spectator.
Young Dutch artists Gosse the Kort and Daan Brinkmann are introducing their project titled Hybrid, which has premiered in Stedeljik Museum in Amsterdam in December 2010. Hybrid is an interactive installation in which the physical touch of visitors is manifested through a beam of light, rotating at high speed; the rhythmical patterns that occur are the results of the human eye functions. Through their interactive installations the authors explore the expressive potential of spectator's body and at the same time they produce new social experience.
The gallery entrance is occupied with the object titled The revolution will not be televised, by Matej Stupica, student of painting in Ljubljana's Academy of Fine Arts and Design. The bearer of the image is an altar of the 20th century, a manipulative weapon that uses guaranteed comfort and security to overcome the desire to risk; it gives us a chance to change. Matej Stupica is comic's author, illustrator, musician, a creator who is attracted to different fields of visual arts and constant experimenting with new ways of expression. His works have landed him Prešeren's Award for students.
Primož Oberžan and Boštjan Drinovec designed an interactive sculpture titled Beatnik. The visitors use wooden sticks or boxing gloves to play electronic percussions made of old tires and by doing so, they produce a sound-video image. Primož Oberžan is the founder of the musical group The Stroj. He is a musician and original musical instrument designer. Boštjan Drinovec is a sculptor with a series of permanent sculpture exhibitions in Slovenia; he is also a lecturer at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana.
