Nika Oblak & Primož Novak, Reality is Out, kinetic video installation , 2012

Nika Oblak & Primož Novak will be hosted at the SCCA Project Room as a part of the No Nails, No Pedestals series. The artist’s duo will present their current production focused on issues concerning our existence and its relation to technological progress.

They will exhibit their kinetic video installation Reality Is Out that combines video performance, pneumatic mechanism and the actual cardboard sign which appears as if leaving the video frame and literally entering the exhibition space.
The work is a continuum of the artists’ exploration of the relationship between reality and fiction.

Nika Oblak & Primož Novak have been working as an artist’s tandem since 2003. They studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana, Slovenia and at the Universitaet der Kuenste in Berlin.
