Streetwalker in Ljubljana!

3.6.2014

The Streetwalker returns to its birthplace! In the past four years, we have opened “ready-made” galleries in France, Austria, Great Britain, the Netherlands, South Korea and even in Maribor. Now we finally found time to make a proper “Duchampisation” on the streets where the idea was first tested in 2010.

Preparations are in full swing and the doors will officially open on Friday, 13. 6. at 19:00 at the Square of the French Revolution. We will also have guided tours on 14.6. (11:00), 15.6. (19:00) during the Museum night on the 21.6. (18:00 & 20:00), and as part of the Ana Desetnica Festival on 3.7. (17:00 & 19:30) and 4. 7. (17:00  &  18:30).

In addition to all the above we will also welcome individual tours between 13.6. and 5.7. – handy maps that will guide you through the installation will be available at the entrance 24h per day.

In short, pull out your calendars, choose a date and see you there!

P. S. As is traditional the entrance fee is 0 € (students and seniors receive a 50 % discount)

Wintertime news

20.2.2013

The Ljuds have spent the last couple of months preparing for the coming season, working on Ljuds laboratory and artisticaly supporting the “zombilisation” of over 20.000 Slovenian citizens (who are demonstrating for preserving social rights and against growing political corruption). You can have a look at a gallery of our “Protestival” activities or read more about the current situation in Slovenia here.

Streetwalker Reborn!

16.8.2012

Chalon-sur-Saône – Graz – Maribor

Streetwalker was on a long trip, it strolled along Chalon-sur-Saône, hitchhiked to Graz and finished with a lap of honour in Maribor.

Statistics: 24 days of festival fever, a few thousand miles spent on the road, 3 premieres, 20 guided tours, approximately one thousand spectators, 3 sleepless nights per person and 1 slightly damaged head…

Chalon

Otherwise peaceful French town is suddendly transformed into the biggest street theater venue in Europe and starts to burst. Posters and flyers everywhere, performances and music on every corner, everything and everyone is on the street and, of course, so is our Streetwalker. Ljud’s crew is on a 24 hour working schedule and with a huge help – a true fraternité! – from an artistic collective Alteréaliste – we manage to build and prepare the first open air »ready-made« gallery… And to survive!

Graz

One day drive with a quick detour in Ljubljana, no time to sleep, we’re in a hurry and again: new city, new people, new festival, everything starts anew, but we are far more experienced now – La Strada starts… The audience likes the idea and so does the pople from Graz’s district Gris where we set up the gallery. One lady, for instance, invites everyone on the tour to her living room and when 30 people finally manage to squeeze in, a little girl appears out of nowhere and starts playing on the lady’s piano… This is just one of several unexpected, poetic moments, which can happen only when you work on the street and with it…

Maribor

On Lent, in co-production with ECC 2012, strenghtened with a local crew and finally rested we start again: the audience is overtaken by our dynamic tour guide, which concludes the gallery with the »Dravorama« art installation – a 1:1 replica of the Drava river quay, constructed especially for the opening of the Streetwalker gallery – and placed exactly on the place where it always was…

And then – The Grand finale: Graz and Maribor fused together into a single gallery, a whole day tour connected with a bus ride. We »kidnap« the audience from Graz and everybody sings »Yellow submarine« while a 40 year old yellow bus is driving on the highway with all its windows down… A short stop at the gas station filled with newly discovered artworks, since it is a subsidiary of both galleries… Next day we repeat the tour in the other direction and arrive just in time to join the La Strada closing party where we use our custom made, mobile sound system and dance in the streets of Graz until the first serious complaint is filed by the neighbours…
