Portrait of Jani Kovačič
Jani Kovačič is a renown Slovenian musician and for next issue of Mladina, my favorite Mladina’s journalist Jure Aleksič wrote his profile. Great text revealing a lot background stories of Jani as a Rock star of 90’s. I mentioned to him I laughed my guts out when he came on the stage and said to the audience: Dear audience I’m going to introduce you a content of my next cassette.” Then he was for next 10 minutes pulling out magnetic tape from the cassette. He told me another of his dadaistic part from his concert. After few performances like that he was really notorious artist throughout Yugoslavia and everybody were expecting shocking performance, so on one of his concert he started the concert with a claim that he’s going to cut himself! So he repeated that few more times during the concert that lasted for an hour. Everybody were mesmerized and waiting when he’ll cut himself and when he finished with his music, he took scissors raised them high and then he cut his nails. HERE is link to his words of his songs.
Photographic wise I wanted to build a picture of nostalgia, memories and his quote that he love just to sit and observes stories that are happening on the street.
