Photographs Pictures are dealt as non-multimedia project. That means, that it is not just about photographs. It is about two very different mediums, which are presented in two different ways. If the photography is present in a positive sense, the painting is present in a negative way. The project shows that negative or fictitious presence of photographed object is extremely powerful. Its “speech” is strengthened through an image of an image.

Exhibition of finalists for OHO group Award, Center and gallery P74, Ljubljana 2008

Besides theatre and audio-visual projects, which we produce with analog projectors, we have started to explore the use of these devices in galleries. This time, instead of developing the methods we are already using, we have decided for static, lasting form of photography. We have tried to produce a number of compositions and motives, effect of which is based on dialectical relation between social and personal, physical activity and contemplative observation.
