MOCHVARA GALLERY PRESENTS
MAJA SMREKAR (SI): History of the Future
MULTIMEDIA INSTALLATION

exhibition opening: Thursday, April, 10th, 2014, at 7pm
artist talk and in situ project presentation: Friday, April 11th, 2014, at 8pm
@ Pogon Jedinstvo
free entrance

April speculations on future at Mochvara Gallery are an introduction to SferaKon 2014 which is dedicated to parallel universes and alternative histories. Slovenian artist Maja Smrekar is the main culprit for the seductive space capsule which will land in the main hall of Pogon Jedinstvo – under the History of the Future, everyone who dares sit in the capsule and allow themselves to get lost in the deviations of a space and time continuum, Smrekar will lead through a mind-blowing trip through a cinematographic archive of international sci-fi productions. The sophisticated installation is not merely an exquisitely designed time machine launching us to the future of as far as the year 802701, but it is also a virtual lecture, a cyber-personification of the author, revealing astonishing Zeitgeist fragments of historical periods, and providing for an intriguing insight into man's relation towards changes in nature, technology and social psychodynamics through the phenomenology of the perception of time and a fascinating analysis of the contemporary anthropology of fear.
Backed up by an artist talk and a project presentation, accompanied by a theatre play, talks with comic book authors and a movie projection, the exhibition is part of a three day programme "
Speculations on Future – awaiting SferaKon 2014", a collaboration project organized by SFera, BADco,. Booksa, URK, Aksioma and Kontejner.

MARTIN MESSIER (CA): Sewing Machine Orchestra
SOUND PERFORMANCE

performance and artist talk:
25. and 26.03.2014 at 8 pm

@ large hall of Pogon Jedinstvo
free entrance

The fourth consecutive sound art year at Mochvara Gallery kicks off with an orchestra made of Singer machines! For two whole melodic-nostalgic noise evenings our imagination will be tackled and our auditory channels tickled by Martin Messier – a Canadian artist and performer renowned for his complex, left field and happily strange sound and rhythm. Eight charming ladies from past industrial times will magically in their unique luminous-sonar presence transcend the audience into dream like universes and sing a hymn to the tangential possibilities of everyday objects Messier in no way sews in front of his audience, but in a unique way Messier resuscitates old Singers put asleep years ago. For the first time in Croatia he will resuscitate them twice in a row in the large hall of Pogon Jedinstvo: on Tuesday and Wednesday, March 25th and 26th, 2014, accompanied by a cozy artist talk to spicy up the start of a new season in Mochvara Gallery.

Limited number of spaces is available for both performances. Please reserve your space by 6pm on the day of the performance at the following e-mail address: galerija@mochvara.hr

SUBMIT PROJECTS TO THE
TOUCH ME FESTIVAL 2014 - OPEN CALL
TOUCH ME FESTIVAL

Klovićevi dvori Gallery, Zagreb, November-December 2014

KONTEJNER | bureau of contemporary art praxis is inviting artists and authors to submit
their projects and ideas to Touch Me Festival 2014 open call in order to participate in the festival program of the forth international Touch Me Festival. The open call deadline is 32d June 2014.

Touch Me Festival is an international triennial trans-disciplinary artistic project dedicated to the progressive integration of contemporary art, science and technology. In the year 2014 and its fourth edition the project tackles the intriguing topic of time through innovative concepts that are the very fuel behind the forward-looking contemporary scientific and artistic research.

The fascination with time is what interconnects the experimental artistic community with the scientific and the technological milieu, becoming the crucial area of their intense correlation. The current dynamics of scientific achievements conjoined with the strength of the artistic visionary deconstructs the social and cultural paradigms, generating at the same time new, non-conventional, hybrid perspectives that have the ability to perceive time and society in time from a critical and provocative point of view. The Touch Me project deals with exactly that type of critically potent artistic practice merged with technology and science in order to expose the problematic of a deeply ambivalent, but also captivating and exciting relation of the contemporary society towards numerous ethical questions raised by the constant changes in our technologically (pre)defined environment. From the biological predetermination related to time perception, quantum physics, astro-physics and current neurological research, to psychology, cultural anthropology and philosophical thought regarding time, the Touch Me Festival 2014 combines the ecstatic causality of the scientific discoveries with the lucidity of fascinating perspectives offered by the contemporary artistic approach.

All submissions must be sent on the Touch Me application form that can be downloaded here:

EXTRAVAGANT BODIES: EXTRAVAGANT AGE
Inspiring old age – body and mind on the fringes of social norms
Extravagant bodies is an international festival held triennially in Zagreb, Croatia since 2007. It deals with the ways in which society sets the boundaries of the normal and the pathological, whether of corporeality, appearance, behaviour, sexuality or life style. In its first edition in 2007, the festival dealt with physical disability and in the second in 2010 with mental and psychic health. The theme of the upcoming festival Extravagant bodies: Extravagant age is old age, that is, the individual experiences and social implications of what is called the third and the fourth age. Old age, of course, is not considered a disorder, rather an inevitable phase in each life that has not ended prematurely already. However, because of the health, physical and psychic changes that it brings, and because of the very fact that old age leads to death, it and its signs arouse a repugnance comparable with that engendered by the body or mind located beyond social norms.
