The young artistic collective Ljud will launch the first “ready-made outdoor gallery” in Ljubljana on the 13th April at 17:00. Pocestnica, with its »entrance« from the Vžigalica Gallery (Trg francoske revolucije 7) and its »exit« in Studio 8 (Soteska 8 – opposite the Glej theatre), will operate according to the progressive topological principle of the »inverted sock«. Young artists from Slovenia, Poland, Portugal, Austria, Macedonia and Hungary, for whom established art practices are not entirely sufficient, will use their own content to give a deeper meaning to the streets, artistically expose the walls of surrounding houses, open the window, fill the flower boxes, surprise fire hydrants and entertain some public lamps …

»The Pocestnica gallery directly addresses everyone, especially random by-passers, for whom contemporary art practices and hermetic gallery activities are all greek «

The outdoor gallery will be using the “ready-made” principles to reinterpret concrete public space and expose existing urban compositions, landscapes, installations and artifacts. The general public will be directly involved in the debate on the purpose of public space, the relationship between skill and concept in contemporary art and its “elite” status. Individual artists will also conduct a series of short performances.

The project, which is interdisciplinary oriented will be held in co-organization with the Institute for contemporary art SCCA-Ljubljana and Studio 8, it will also conclude the “Open House in Ljubljana”, a set of workshops and seminars which will be conducted and organized by the Ljud group as part of their international program on informal artistic mobility H.O.M.E. – Houses for Open Mobility Exchange, supported by the Directorate of Culture at the European Commission.

See you there!
