Building Desire
Jasmina Cibic

Artist Talk

May 5, 2017 / 18:30

Jasmina Cibic, one of the artists of the Cold Front from the Balkans exhibition will focus on dominant themes of her work such as architecture and soft power and their mutual co-relation to national representation. The artist will speak in more detail about her work Building Desire that is included in the exhibition. Cibic is a young Slovenian artist who has successfully created her own unique language. Her works present large-scale research projects involving architects, scientists, artists, other specialists and craftsmen, as well as factory- made products, all chosen for some specific contextual or historical significance. She combines film, performance and installation in order to create a platform for discussion and traverse different structures and systems. Her projects often feel like Gesamtkunstwerke and are usually presented in chapters across various international contexts.

Jasmina Cibic was born in Ljubljana, Slovenia in, 1979. Throughout her career, she has held numerous exhibitions at a variety of international venues. Among selected exhibitions are: MSU Zagreb, MSU Belgrade, MSUM+ Ljubljana, Ludwig Museum Budapest, MNHA Luxemburg and California College of the Arts. Recently, her films have been screened at Pula Film Festival, HKW Berlin, Les Rencontres Internationales Paris, Dokfest Kassel, and Copenhagen International Film Festival. She was the winner of MAC International Ulster Bank Award. Her upcoming exhibitions include solo exhibitions at Aarhus 2017, Kunstmuseen Krefeld, BALTIC Gateshead and DHC Art Montreal.

Free of admissions, drop in. This event will take place in the auditorium. The talk will be in English with simultaneous Turkish translation.

Artist Nicola Lorini in Conversation

Inspired by its Anatolian Weights and Measures Collection, Pera Museum presents a contemporary video installation titled For All the Time, for All the Sad Stones at the gallery that hosts the Collection. The installation by the artist Nicola Lorini takes its starting point from recent events, in particular the calculation of the hypothetical mass of the Internet and the weight lost by the model of the kilogram and its consequent redefinition, and traces a non-linear voyage through the Collection.

Return from Vienna

Return from Vienna

Józef Brandt harboured a fascination for the history of 17th century Poland, and his favourite themes included ballistic scenes and genre scenes before and after the battle proper –all and sundry marches, returns, supply trains, billets and encampments, patrols, and similar motifs illustrating the drudgery of warfare outside of its culminating moments.
