exhibition opening: “Art Walk Through Poetry”

Photos from exhibition opening Words as Colours, Colours as Words / Art Walk Through Poetry in Gallery Vodnikova Domačija, Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Exhibition examines the relationship between artistic expression in visual arts and in words, and which can be placed among research projects that transcend the boundaries of a single art form.

Authors who have on the one hand searched for visual value in words or on the other hand space for words on the canvas will present themselves. The exhibition will, in three complete sections, offer a selection of quotes from the manifestos of visual and literary artists, which will initiatively lead visitors through the history of experimenting with form and word; it will present artists of the Slovenian avant-garde, a reference for both Slovenian visual and literary creativity; and it will be concluded with artistic works and multimedia installations by contemporary artists.

Artists: Maja Burja, Avgust Černigoj, Primož Čučnik & Gregor Podlogar & Žiga Kariž, Matjaž Hanžek, Andrej Hočevar & Jaka Železnikar, Alenka Pirman, Srečko Kosovel, Anton Podbevšek, Zoran Srdić Janežič, Valérie Wolf Gang
