NTF – Department of Textile and Fashion Design: Under the Ground
24th May–19th June 2021
Mentors: Assoc. Prof. M.A. Katja Burger Kovič, Prof. Marija Jenko
The Under the Ground lighting installation is exploring rarely seen landscapes created by various fungi and groups of mushrooms. The authors used white surfaces, textiles and light sources to conjure up a fascinating world of the undergrowth in the street, a lilliputian environment of fantastic organisms, plants and their delicate structure. Fungi are an important disposer of waste in nature, an extremely diverse and simultaneously a poorly researched segment of life that is subject to unstoppable destruction. The artists’ intention with the project is to raise awareness of these hidden elements of nature and remind the spectator of the importance of such ecospheres.
