SŠOF Ljubljana: Shadow of Ideal Reality
Gosposka street, next to the SŠOF building
24th May–19th June 2021
Mentor: Damijan Kracina
The SŠOF student’s project consists of a larger spatial structure, a network of rods that illustrates contacts between individuals. The light effects make the rods disappear and reappear and thus depict the instability of interpersonal contacts, which was especially evident during the current epidemics. The work represents a unique visual metamorphosis of distress that the most vulnerable groups of people find themselves in, including youngsters. As the creators wrote: »The reality that we live from day to day is just a shadow of the hopes we had for the future. In solitude that sometimes seems despairful, we are shutting ourselves in and the last contacts that keep us breathing above the surface seem to be breaking apart.«
