Project info

As part of my residency at the Museumquartier, I would like to realize a segment of my project under the working title of Making of. The project will be based on my previous artwork and published in book form, as well as an experimental survey exhibition. Using the book and the exhibition, I would not only like to document and present my previous work, but also create a specific narrative with and about them, creating a new work of art in the process, which would be based on the reflection, transformation, and montage of these past projects. I would like to invent an interesting form of representation, narrative, and reflection on artworks.

In addition to collecting the material for the project, I’m also interested in establishing connections for future collaborations. Since I’m involved in a lot of projects in Ljubljana, mainly concerning our GalerijaGallery program (, and the Made in China project (, this is an opportunity to make new connections and encourage artists and partners to participate in our above-mentioned projects.
