MOCHVARA GALLERY PRESENTS
SAŠA SPAČAL (SI), MIRJAN ŠVAGELJ (SI), ANIL PODGORNIK (SI): Myconnect
MULTIMEDIA BIO-INSTALLATION

exhibition opening and artist talk: Monday, 27.10.2014., 20.00h @ small hall of Pogon Jedinstvo
Trnjanski nasip bb, Zagreb
exhibiton is open from October 28th to Octoer 30th, from 5pm to 8pm
free entrance

The body is isolated in a capsule like some kind of microbiological structure in a laboratory. The nervous system enters an interface with a fungus mycelium and the body becomes one with a completely unfamiliar fungal multiplicity. Lying in a white capsule, we find ourselves in a real bio-technological symbiosis with a fungus – in a total sensory immersion of the body which eradicates the limits between species and through us merges the natural, the human and the technological.
This is not the intro to a sci-fi movie script – it is a short description of the experience brought to Mochvara Gallery by Myconnect – the multimedia bio-installation by the Slovene team made up of artist Saša Spačal, doctor of biomedicine dr. Mirjan Švagelj and DIY enthusiast Anil Podgornik. Myconnect capsule is where you go to experience a total sensory immersion into the experience of a physiological and perceptive merging of your own body with that of a fungus. Visitors are, one by one, invited to enter and lay into the installation which will bring them to the state of symbiosis with a fungus mycelium through a hybrid experience of haptic, auditive and visual stimuli triggered by their own heartbeats. The installation offers an exciting escape into the unknown world of transgression and reveals the complex integration of body into the habitat which surrounds us, as well as the interdependency of our perception of reality upon the sensory impulses in our surroundings. The curators of Mochvara Gallery will discuss the idea behind this art-science project as well as the interesting technological aspects of the installation with the team behind Myconnect at the exhibition opening on Monday, October 27th at 8pm. The exhibition will remain open to the public from October 28th to October 30th, every day from 5pm to 8pm.

AMBIENTAL AUDIO-VIDEO INSTALLATION

Exhibition opening and artist talk: Monday, September 22nd 2014, 8pm @ Pogon Jedinstvo, Trnjanski nasip bb, Zagreb
The exhibition is open on September 23rd and 24th, from 5pm to 9pm 
Free entrance 

Mochvara Gallery enters the fall season of 2014 deliriously flooded! Aqueous is an ambiental audio-visual installation by the young Split artist Toni Mijač, cordially inviting you to dive deep into intense states of consciousness and extraordinary emotions of the overwhelming and exaggerated water surfaces. The visual purity and simplicity of the water is activated by alternating drops coordinated and accompanied by sounds of soothing rhythmic episodes which interchange with intense sounds and fast motion picture tempo, creating a minimalist sound composition rich in tone and rhythm dynamics. The instrument functions as a set of percussions while the drops act as drums creating a sound effect on visual channels coordinate, according to their coloristic features, with the tones of the instrument. Visitors will have to opportunity to dive into this magical aquatic ambiental experience on Monday, September 22nd 2014 from 8pm at the exhibition opening and artist talk with Toni Mijač who will be discussing his fascination with water and sound as well as the relation between ambiance and performative arts. The exhibition will also be open on September 23rd and 24th from 5pm to 9pm. The project is realised within the Sound Art Incubator 2014 – production platform by Mochvara Gallery.

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.
