Natalija R. Črnčec & Nina Šulin: Coexistences
These two artists from Maribor are returning to Lighting Guerrilla after few years break, again with a striking ambiental composition, result of long-term and patient manual labour. As they say, this time the installation is conceived as construction of the appearance of colour in its formation, glow and wane. It consists of a multitude of handmade dotted and coloured organic forms, some sort of cocoons that inhabit a darkened place with their glowing shells. Coexistences work as a unified organism of unknown colour matter, as a suggestive visual landscape that seduces the visitor and literally sucks them in: the project also seeks to outline the excessive experience of both (co)existence and (co)creation through a game of thickening and approaching. The experimental sound backdrop accompanying the layout was created by Andrej Hrvatin.
Natalija R. Črnčec graduated in 1996 at the Department of Visual Arts at the Faculty of Pedagogy in her native Maribor. As an artist she mostly focuses on the issues with colour and light, thematised in spatial installations and paintings.
