Drčar: Turritopsis nutricula – immortal jellyfish

Tina Drčar: Turritopsis nutricula – immortal jellyfish 


light installation // Vegova street // 16. 5. – 18. 6.

OPENING: Monday, 16th May, at 21.30


Jellyfish are fascinating creatures already by themselves, even without their rich mythological and psychoanalitical connotations: after all they're one of the oldest species of sea animals in the world. They've always tickled the human imagination with their specific aura of duality: they're creatures both mysteriously beautiful and dangerous. The artist Tina Drčar chose to expand her painted jellyfish into the third dimension, so three pairs of jellyfish will occupy one of the streets in Ljubljana and light the way for the passersby. The installations are created using different materials whose textures and transparencies evoke the impression of jellyfish's fragility and beauty.


TINA DRČAR finished the College of visual arts in Ljubljana, where she graduated in 2004 with the thesis titled 'Graffiti and graffiti painting' with professors and mentors Marko Butina and Tanja Mastnak. Her works is best visible on the murals in Metelkova Mesto where she's had her studio for a long time. Apart from painting she's also interested in other media and techniques: she creates mosaics, posters, objects and light installations. She's contributed to many exhibition events by Metelkova's artists and had numerous individual exhibitions in Slovenia and abroad.
