BÁLINT SZOMBATHY: CITY SIGNS

Exhibition opening on Thursday, 7 February at 7 pm at Photon Gallery. 



Bálint Szombathy, a Vojvodina born Hungarian conceptual artist, is one of the key figures of the ex-Yugoslavian art scene. He has been working with photography since the end of the 60s and is renowned for his experimental approach. His oeuvre encompasses an array of artistic practices from visual poetry, process art, land art and performance to conceptual art. 

In his most recent project City Signs he documents society's crude interventions into the old towns of cities in the style of "everyday topography”. The depicted motives are quotidian, and primarily document interventions of “civilisation” into the old city i.e. the omnipresence of black cables, that are negligently plastered over the surfaces of historic buildings and stick out of their cracks, etc. The author explores the inconsistencies in urban structures and marks various locations and their “signs” in a documentary fashion. In this sense, Bálint Szombathy is not only an important figure of the neo-avant-garde and engaged art but plays an important role as a theoretician and the protagonist of “semiotic-art”, that the City Sings series belongs to.

The exhibition will be open until 1 February 2019. 
Open on weekdays between 12 - 6 pm.

PHOTO ZINES OF CENTRAL EUROPE

PhotoSheets zine exhibition:  Friday 25. January between 12 - 6 pm. 

Round table discussion : 6 pm. 

PhotoSheets: PHOTO ZINES OF CENTRAL EUROPE

To accompany the exhibition and the release of the 6th edition of the REBUS photo zine, Photon Gallery is organising an event dedicated to presenting photo zines from a variety of Central European countries. On Friday 25 January, an all-day event will be held at the Photon Gallery in Ljubljana with a round table discussion with the protagonists of the photo zine scene. The event is dedicated to the increasing popularity and the relevance of the zine format in contemporary photography, which allows a more raw and experimental approach to artistic creation and self-publishing.

REBUS / VOL. 06
Matjaž Wenzel and Rene Maurin, the authors behind the photo zine REBUS, are confronting image and text in manners that elude the orthodox illustration of the content or commentary of the image. For the new volume of this image-text enigma, they draw upon a socio-political phenomenon embedded in humanity since the beginning of civilisation, yet growing to omnipresent and dystopian proportions in the age of mature contemporary technology. 

The exhibition will be open until 1 February 2019. 
Open on weekdays between 12 - 6 pm.
