Curated program of video poetry for the World Poetry Day 2018
Wednesday, 21 March 2018, 19.30pm
Pritličje, Mestni trg 2, Ljubljana
SCCA-Ljubljana has been connecting visual arts and literature through exhibitions, curated video programs and screenings since 2011. In 2018 we are focused on video poetry. We want to show diverse approaches and affinities between the poetic word, the moving image, the sound, and the picture.
The video program Correspondences curated by Dušan Dovč presents the production of the Gulag Institute from Ljubljana, MKC Maribor (MKC Črka program) and KUD Liber from Krško. As well as the video work by the artist participating in the DIVA Station Archive.
The selection shows very divers works, from animation to video when the sound (i.e. poem) is omitted and replaced by gestures and blurred image.
The program will be screened for the World Poetry Day on March 21 at 19.30 in the Pritličje in Ljubljana, where poetry readings will be held all day.
In the autumn, we are announcing an exhibition of video poetry at the Vodnikova domačija gallery in Ljubljana.
