Duration: 60 min

I chose works that remind me of the past. Thematically and/or aesthetically. It’s a difficult feeling to explain, and I don’t know what exactly in the works evokes it. Maybe the colours, the sound, the story … A certain nostalgia creeps in, quite randomly and inexplicably, as if I were a joyful 13-year-old again. It is this carefree, relaxed and humorous quality that the selected works evoke in me. They surprise and make me smile again and again; they calm me down in tense times and remind me of better days. Perhaps time is not so fleeting after all.

Vita Weisseisen  is a visual artist and a former member of the Podmladek collective who graduated from the sculpting department of the Academy of Fine Arts and Design, University of Ljubljana. Her works are intimate confessions in which she intuitively combines and connects pop culture references, ironic commentaries and documented personal experiences. She works mainly in the field of drawing and video. She describes her works as jumping from one subject to another, acting as a kind of reminder or list, recording her feelings, memories and thoughts and connecting them into wholes.

VideoGarden (VideoDvorišče) is a programme of curated screenings and talks on art, video, and film. In the spring-summer period we step out of the dark cinema and the cold gallery space into the open air. In collaboration with Škuc Gallery we organize screening events in its inner courtyard.

DIVA Station is an online and physical archive that SCCA-Ljubljana has been developing since 2005 with the aim of researching, documenting, archiving and presenting art film, video and new media art.
