Aleš Horvat: Sine sole sileo

Aleš Horvat: Sine sole sileo
25 March–23 April 2022

You are cordially invited to the opening of Aleš Horvat's solo exhibition Sine sole sileo, which will take place on Friday, 25 March 2022, at 7 p.m. at the artKIT gallery. At the opening event, the author's poetry will be read by actresses Minca Lorenci and Maruša Majer and actor Primož Pirnat.


A minute's silence for the self-evident. Somewhere it is waiting and languishing because today it is almost gone. Even the most self-evident things under the sun have to be fought for. Horvat's Office Art is about denying the self-evidence of everyday objects. For the artist, watering flowers was a given. Even though there were no flowers at all. There was soil, soaked in tea, and instead of a clay pot, there was a perforated can of peas. Underneath, carelessly stacked square leaves waited for the moisture to break through the soil and leave a trace. Everyone leaves something behind. Horvat's works form a landscape between theme and darkness, the exhibited and the real, between work and material. Let's try a word parallel: Without the sun, we are silent, but that does not mean we are already there. There is less light and the feeling is left at the tip of our tongue.
