New project Slovenci (Slovenians)

with 4 comments

Here is my new work that I’ve exhibited in Simulaker Gallery as a part of a group exhibition BombaStik together with Bojan Radovič and Boštjan Pucelj. This exhibition was a part of series of cultural events devoted to a 90th anniversary of beginning of avantgarde in Slovenia. Last post was devoted to it.

In this work I took real articles from Slovenian magazines and illustrate them with photo-montages of famous Slovenians looking as a Gypsies. Text is intact, as it was written and it’s dealing with usual national issues as for instance: arguments about border between neighbors, fraud, drug smuggling, Internet hacking, Roma intolerance, drink and driving, blackmailing, etc. My point is that if perpetrates of this acts would be anyhow different then majority in Slovenia, them and their families would be stigmatized. Side effect that I didn’t count on it at the beginning is how similar we are to Roma if we change the clothing.

  4. For starters he must go their state make-up. Criminal offenses of moral turpitude it really is honest? The attorneys also attain required information just like investment defense, charitable gifts or taxation elimination requirements. That’s adequate to your list.
