Slobodan’s New Materialisms: 40

Slobodan’s new materialisms present themselves with an interactive performative sound-body installation titled 40. The three-hour work of art, which addresses the class dimension of cultural capital, tells the life story of a performer whose beginnings, imbued with trash aesthetics, arose in the autonomous spaces of Ljubljana. Slobodan’s New Materialisms draw the artistic expression from the political-activist involvement and are fueled by topics such as class, gender, queerness, mental health and migration. He is mainly interested in how these perspectives or personal circumstances coexist as an inseparable whole. 40 thus opens up a completely new space for reflection on vulnerability for the participants, in which they can even perceive it embodied in the performer. Radical statements connected with minimalistic means of realization, as we are used to by the artist, effectively communicate moving content, deeply immersed in the themes of queer-feminism, while at the same time, with light playfulness, they make deep and hurtful cuts in the fabric of heteronormative patriarchy, rooted in all of us, the viewers. The interactive performative sound-body installation is accessible to viewers anytime between 7:30 and 10:30 pm.
