Uroš Weinberger: Projectories

Uroš Weinberger: Projectories
28 January–26 February 2022

We kindly invite you to the opening of Uroš Weinberger’s solo exhibition entitled Projectories, which will take place on Friday, 28 January 2022, at 7 p.m. in KiBela, space for art.


As we have already seen in Weinberger’s previous works, these works are also a direct response to the current social transformations conditioned by economic and political motives, the development of new, even more sophisticated technological tools of surveillance and classification of »bodies«, the environmental crisis, and the global pandemic. The artist's thoughtful framing and composition of scenes inhabited by human and non-human entities, and and relationships emerging between them, are enhanced in all their toxicity by his choice of color palette and canvas size. Weinberger’s paintings thus confront the viewer with the raw state of the world while at the same time affirming the communicative and subversive power of the painting medium. In fact, with his specific artistic language, the artist problematizes the use of high-tech tools for the extraction and exploitation of natural resources, the discipline of »bodies« and movement, the management of population and mass phenomena such as birth rate, morbidity, work capacity, migrations and public safety, as well as the economic and biological segregation of »bodies«.

Uroš Weinberger obtained his undergraduate degree (2003) and Master’s degree (2005) in painting at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana. In 2001, he received the Prešeren Students Award; in 2018, he was the recipient of the highest artistic recognition for important works of art of the University of Ljubljana.
