The Theory # series of art projects are committed to the representation of complex creative processes in specific coordinates of time and space through video, photography, painting, drawing, installation, text, sound and sculpture. The applied methods include portraiture practices, historical research, conversation, walking and progressive occupation of an exhibition space as a metaphor of the whole process and its acquired or sensed meanings. Images, themes and questions arisen from these research strategies are analysed, re-elaborated and combined in order to produce a narrative which deals with the traditions of history painting, anarchitecture, realism and allegory.
Theory #Velenje was produced in between 12th and 25th August, 2016 for Kunigunda Festival of Youth Culture in Velenje, Slovenia. The exhibition includes a large site-specific installation and a series of works made in Velenje during that period, as well as a series of paintings produced in Ljubljana in 2015-2016 displayed here for the first time in the framework of the Institute of Consensual Art.
