With his new project, Tilen Sepič is highlighting certain elements of everyday reality which he places into different semantic frameworks by contextually relocating them. Sepič selected several park plants or trees at the location of the installation and installed museum showcases around them which illuminate certain parts of the plant at night. By using the presentation procedures usually employed in museums, Sepič emphasizes the barely noticeable elements of the urban or natural habitat, and in this way gives prominence to the overlooked features of the space around us. The result is musealized and aestheticized living nature that invokes a sense of alienation and absurdity with its controlled isolation. With the project, Tilen Sepič wants to draw attention to the hidden beauty of things that are not the work of an author or property of anyone – of course not even the artist, and which we too easily take for granted.
