Mojca Zlokarnik: City and the Colour


Mojca Zlokarnik mostly works as a painter and a graphic artist. Her recognizable minimalist visual artworks are based on the exploration of colour and tonal effects, on a thought-out combination of basic visual elements. Her markedly bi-dimensional and geometrical works invite the audience into an extravaganza of colours and dynamics of the shifting relations between them. Her current project is characterized by the transition from the static into moving images: the starting points of this monumental projection are her paintings and graphics, reshaped into a dynamic video loop. According to the artist herself, the project is tied to the Invisible Cities book by Italo Calvino, only in her case it is the colour that’s the main element of immersion and experience.
