Katja Oblak: The Space of a New Remembrance

27. 06. 2014 – 25. 08. 2014

Katja Oblak (1975) is one of the young sculptors who have found their place within the principle of classic sculpting. Her works are marked by a refined subtlety in choosing her materials of expression as well as by a respect for corporality (object – figure), spatial construction, which she tries to supplement with videos, sound and movement (live or recorded performance on video).

The artist designed this exhibition entitled The Space of New Remembrance for the so-called lapidarium, which always imposes specific conditions on artists with its four sets of rooms with separate entrances in the ground floor of the former monastery. For this reason, Katja Oblak has outlined her exhibiting project as four lines of thought, which relate to each other. She utilises the principle of installation. Each line is made of individual fragments – thought quotations relating to the artist’s personal experience and corresponding to the original topic.

The choice of specific material conforming to the idea expressed as much a possible is highly important to the artist. In this exhibition, she has limited herself particularly to white or light materials, such as paper, stone and plaster. In the general perception, white is the closest to the butoh dance, which is Katja Oblak’s vantage point.
