Mori Sikora: Perennial emergence

Mori Sikora: Perennial emergence
22 March–20 April 2024

You are cordially invited to the opening of the solo exhibition Perennial emergence by Mori Sikora, which will take place on Friday, 22 March 2024, at 6 p.m. in the artKIT exhibition space.


The textile works hanging in the exhibition space combine the natural world of plants and their extracts to transform the fabrics into vessels with memories (of plants and the environment in which they lived). Mori Sikora’s artistic works are the result of a long process of experimenting with different materials – plants, flowers, natural extracts and colors – and exploring different manipulations of the fabric, such as patching, embroidering, sewing and assembling small pieces into larger collages.

She currently creates large-scale works in the form of hanging statues and installations. In some of her major works she uses the techniques of smashing, hammering, beating and tapping on flowers and dyeing with petals.

More recently, one of her fundamental working principles is sustainability – how to create without unnecessary pollution and excessive production, using materials she already has or can easily source or collect. Some of her works are made from repurposed fabrics, threads and yarns.
The human experience of seeing or not seeing merges in her works with the nature that surrounds us and is within us.

The meaning and concept of her art has a personal touch and is sensitive to current issues in the world we live in today. She deals with climate change, species extinction, overconsumption and the turning away from our roots – nature. We have turned our backs on Mother Earth. Therefore, the author wants to remind the audience and herself to reflect and examine our position and the space that has been created for us after all the changes in the world and around us.


Mori Sikora, born in 1998, is currently completing her master’s degree in painting at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design at the University of Ljubljana. She recently completed her Erasmus exchange program in Sweden. In her work she deals with post-humanism, nature and climate change, animal rights and the preservation of organisms. She is fascinated by the senses and the human ability to perceive and feel the world and life through them. She creates installations using fabrics dyed with natural dyes and interweaves the mediums of painting, sculpture and textiles to create tactile, sensual works of art. She has exhibited in group exhibitions in Slovenia and internationally, but her first solo exhibition is the current one at the artKIT exhibition space. Her works are in private collections in Poland, Sweden, Slovenia and the USA. She lives and works in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
