Valerie Wolf Gang: (Pod)zavest / (Sub)conscious, video instalation
Opening on Friday, 6 May 2016 (showing until 21 May 2016)
Valerie Wolf Gang: (Pod)zavest / (Sub)conscious
The artist uses the video installation to bring the attention to some of the most topical issues in present-day society. The content of her work is shaped by global political, economic and social trends, which evoke a variety of emotions and join individuals in an archetypal think-alike perspective: fear, hatred, conspiracy theories, prejudice, preoccupation, and so on. The artist confronts the public with combinations of provocative messages, used as a response to the currently topical social issues, which often have a drastic and dramatic impact on the progress of culture and society as a whole. Moral judgment is a matter of the individual, says Pungerčar, referring to Saint-Exupéry's words: “What is essential is invisible to the eye.”
