P L A T E AU R E S I D U E: Apertures in the Landscape

P L A T E AU R E S I D U E: Apertures in the Landscape
25 November–17 December 2022

You are cordially invited to the opening of the exhibition by the artistic duo P L A T E AU R E S I D U E, composed of Eva Pavlič Seifert and Aljaž Celarc, entitled Apertures in the Landscape, which will take place on Friday, 25 November 2022, at 7 p.m. in the artKIT exhibition space.


The exhibition explores the significance of the material remnants of past eras, the obscure technologies of the past and the process of returning nature to areas that have been altered by human technology in the past. The atmospheric light and sound installation provides a unique sensory experience and introduces visitors to the obscure technical heritage of defensive structures in the abandoned and overgrown area of the Rapallo border. The visitor enters the darkened space with special photophonic lamps that emit sound waves along with the light, changing the audio-visual narrative.

P L A T E AU R E S I D U E is an imaginary identity of award-winning duo Aljaž Celarc (b. 1989, BA in Geography [Faculty of Arts, SI] & MA in Photography [AKV St. Joost, NL]) and Eva Pavlič Seifert (b. 1989, BA in Art History [Faculty of Arts, SI] & MA in Visual Culture [Aalto University, FI]). They work with landscape ecology and new media to research new ways of raising public awareness. They always give voice to project participants, natural forms such as rocks, air, organisms, and other clusters of substances, which they reorganize into new unusual forms and new media systems. The baseline of their artistic production are immersive video installations. The tandem lives and works in Slovene village of Novi Kot, in the forest hinterland of Goteniška gora and Snežnik. Solo exhibitions: KiBela, space for art, the Flora Gallery in Dubrovnik, the Museum of Contemporary Art (+MSUM) in Ljubljana, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Novi Sad, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Rijeka, Miklova hiša Gallery, Kino Šiška, Božidar Jakec Gallery in Kostanjevica na Krki, Vžigalica Gallery, Monitor Gallery in Izmir, IMPAKT Festival, the City Museum in Ljubljana, Švicarija and Kunstraum Kreuzberge/Bethanien in Berlin.
