Luiza Margan & Miha Presker: Displacements
Kibela - the opening of Displacements exhibition by Luiza Margan and Miha Presker on Tuesday 2nd December 2008 at 8 pm.
The project connects the logics of maps as the basis for spatial searching with identification systems within the society as important markings of individual identity and commitment. Through layering various cartographic drawings it interprets displacement and dislocation as part of identity of contemporary society where fingerprints are no longer only a part of identification control system, but also become part of geography, become topoi of (non)commitment to a certain space.
Luiza Margan and Miha Presker are artists mainly active within photography, installation and drawing. They are interested in the integration of our physical and social spaces within the framework of constant transformation/change that rule and define our world. Their works address global issues, issues of lost stability and the related instability, mass migrations, issues of maintaining identity etc. These issues are being questioned with the help of process research into internal structures, particular in the relation object - space - image.
