FLUID PARTICLES OF VULCANIC ASH

19 10 2017

Cultural Centre TOBAČNA 001, Ljubljana
Opening of the exhibition will be on Friday, 27 October at 7 p.m.

The exhibition Fluid Particles of Volcanic Ash is part of a multiannual project in which Marko Batista prompts the viewer to reflect on the problem of modern post-fact society in relation to technological progress. Technological systems are not perfect, predictable, self-contained and complete, but rather unstable, and it is precisely this point that serves as the premise of Batista’s exploration.

‘ART IN PUBLIC SPACE” EVENT

The intermedia project entitled Locus:303 originates from the installation Electronic Church by Marko Batista and Srdjan Deba (production Aksioma 2014, coproduction Forum Ljubljana) from 2014. It is an electroacoustic light sculpture that intervenes in the medieval architecture of the space.

The installation is a part of the ‘Art in Public Space’ event with the aim “… to emphasize the signifcance of contemporary art and to show its importance in public. The desire is to establish an equal partnership with urban planners and architects, as well as other creators of the public sphere. It is about connecting the elements between disciplines, between theoretical standpoints and practical use, between academic concepts and actual efectiveness” says curator Matena Bassin.

The exhibition entitled Temporary Objects and Hybrid Ambients responds to the exhibition space of the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Koroška and it works as an integral work of art, which makes it possible for the viewer, depending on his position in space, to get an audio-visual impression of the whole or of the individual modular objects. As regards content, the projects are divided into three exhibition clusters distinguished by the basic principle of “operation”.12158662035_fa636dd341_b

The artist’s installations reveal his specific relationship to technology, which, on the one hand, he demystifies by using “low-tech” elements and by visualising its processes, while on the other hand, he introduces the element of the unknown and he moves on the cusp between controlled and chaotic modular systems.12159465066_7959445d30_b

J-BOT 72

4 04 2013

>  In ancient China, the 3rd century text of the Lie Zi describes an account of humanoid automata, involving a much earlier encounter between Chinese emperor King Mu of Zhou and a mechanical engineer known as Yan Shi, an ‘artificer’. Yan Shi proudly presented the king with a life-size, human-shaped figure of his mechanical ‘handiwork’ made of leather, wood, and artificial organs. There are also accounts of flying automata in the Han Fei Zi and other texts, which attributes the 5th century BC Mohist philosopher Mozi and his contemporary Lu Ban with the invention of artificial wooden birds (ma yuan) that could successfully fly (W.P)
