Brez žebljev in podstavkovAna Čigon: Ana at the Station
Experimental research of DIVA Station archive & performance

Tuesday, 27 October 2015, at 8 pm
Project Room SCCA, Metelkova 6, Ljubljana

Ana Čigon, Ana at the Station

Ana at the Station has been conceived as an experimental project based on a research of physical and on-line archive DIVA Station. Ana Čigon has been searching for her position as an artist within the history of video and performative practices registered by DIVA Station,which led her to the performative action of intertwining her artistic practice with the creation of other artists. Through eclectic knitting of written, spoken and performative quotes from her videos and videos of other related artists her artworks will strive for contextualisation with the aim of formulating a critical stance towards her own creativity.

The visitors are invited to interact in various forms, both spoken and written or performative interventions, and comment on the links the artist has drawn and performed between the artworks.

Čigon’s project is a part of the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage which UNESCO has proclaimed on 27 October. DIVA Station/SCCA-Ljubljana is thus joining the celebration with the practice of an “open archive” to trigger a constructive exchange and emancipated work by the artists as well as their capacity to comment and interpret the av archive and the archiving practices of today. Our aim is to raise awareness of the importance of our audiovisual heritage, emphasise the meaning of audio-visual materials and their carriers (film, video and sound footages, radio and television), and to provide an incentive to protect and maintain these documents which are an essential part of cultural heritage. The slogan of this year’s celebration "Archives at Risk: Protecting the World's Identities"could not be more accurate – a vast majority of organisations dealing with AV archives of contemporary art (amongst them DIVA Station) face themselves with lack of support by the authorities which could assure a sustainable and professional work in this field.
