Salon: Ruth Campau and Petr Šprincl

Ruth Campau will speak about her ideas in regard to the practice of infinite painting and how she communicates human presence with a brushstroke. She will also discuss the ritual and the mechanical stroke of the body when executing a painting and how this signifies a particular place and time.

Petr Šprincl will present his Super 8mm documentary film series that deal with personal memories as told through abstract stories that cause the viewer to question whether the stories are truth or fiction. He will end with a short presentation of a recent performative project that combines music and theater.

Salon: Henrjeta Mece and Saša Tkačenko

Henrjeta Mece will discuss her recent practice and research interests in geography and history which explore issues related to the body, time, location and belonging.

Saša Tkačenko will present his latest series of work, the installations Fence and Is This Real Life and a video work, Perfect Ride. This series questions the perception and status of an art work within a broader social and institutional context and directly refers to a specific situation in Belgrade where the art system collapsed due to the closing of two main museums. Issues of art production and the position of the artist in these conditions will be discussed as well.
