Jasna Hribernik, Zmago Lenardič - Elsa und Lohengrin (0:03:15)
Production: VPK, 1997
A variation on Wagner and his opera Lohengrin. There is no Wagnerian hero, but a ballerina dancing to the opera, which later transforms into a modern song, and the ballerina also turns into a modern dancer. Both dancers, however, resemble a woman covered with roses and lying under transparent plastic - Snow White, or Laura Palmer? (source: Videodokument)Add to playlist

Jurij Korenc - Svetloba sence (0:27:20)
Subtitle: predstava Svetloba giba, svetloba sence
Production: Cankarjev dom, Viba film, Studio 37, 1987
The video shows the process of making a sculpture; static shots accompanied by dramatic ambient music show frozen and moving images of sculpting material – clay. The sculptress’s hands begin to knead the material and shape it into a figurine. Hand movements are slow and quite elegant; the scenes change into an abstract, clouded image of dancing figurines which are becoming increasingly clearer. The end result of the process is a standing female nude.Add to playlist

Andrej Lupinc - V 8. minutah okoli sveta / In 8 Minutes around the World (00:09:38)
Production: TV Slovenija, filmski laboratorij, 1990-2000
The documentary video patchwork with shots from various places in the world that the author visited while working as a cameraman at Slovenian national TV station in the span of ten years. Diversity of aesthetics is visible through a compilation of shots from different continents. A stable rhythm that runs through the whole video unifies all different scenes and brakes the seeming symbolic differences. The video would work as an ideal visualisation of Levi-Strauss's anthropological theory developed in his bo...Add to playlist

Nataša Prosenc Stearns - One Way (00:05:31)
Production: TV Slovenija, 1995
A man and a woman aim to fulfil their desire for power, beauty, supremacy and other similar human attributes. The male and the female are represented through archetypal images: a strong man's body fighting against the crude force of nature, and a woman's body and its clothing reflected in a mirror. The video image presents these archetypes in duplicate, in slow-motion and replication, and thus it assembles the collective visual memory of human inclinations.Add to playlist

Mirko Simić - Do you hear the sound of silence (00:03:02)
Production: Bris & V.S. Video / Forum Ljubljana, 1992
A black and white video which builds on the details of the body under the shower. The images are not disturbed either by sounds or music because - as the title says - only the silence can be heard. That the eye of the video camera is always voyeuristic is best illustrated by the detail of the bath drain, a fetishistic and 'psychotic' object of the greatest voyeur among film directors - Hitchcock.

Video Taiga is made after eponymous performance carried out at the international festival of contemporary arts City of women in October 1995 in Ljubljana.

When the author establishes the landscape, she inserts two wrestlers and a drowning woman into it, additionally increasing the suspense. As the dramaturgy reaches its peak, the set scene...Add to playlist

Evelin Stermitz - Rose is a Rose (0:03:53)
Production: 2008
This performative video work shows a woman engaged in covering her face with rose leaves. As a metaphor for the above and beyond term "beauty", the fragility of beauty and the canons of beauty, the video reveals an obscure image of woman, which is also shaped by transiency and impermanence. Excerpts from the poem "Sacred Emily" by Gertrude Stein, in which she created the sentence "Rose is a rose is a rose is a rose.", form the sound collage to the video work.Add to playlist

Mirjana Batinić - Burja (00:02:42)
Production: 2006
Podvojena podoba. Silhueta, neprijetni občutek tesnobe. Fizični napor. avto erotika. Zaslepljena kamera. V delih snema subtilne avtoportrete, ki mejijo celo na avtoerotiko. Zdi se, da je njeno življenje postalo umetniško delo. A prvo umetniško delo je pravzaprav umetnica sama, ki oblikuje svojo podobo z nenavadno dolgimi lasmi, z oblikovanjem lastne osebnosti, z eksplicitno prefinjeno mimiko. Močna prezenca v njenih delih, kjer se skoraj vedno pojavlja kot osrednja igralka, nas privede do ideje nar...Add to playlist
Mirjana Batinić - Meduza (00:04:36)
Production: Mirjana Batinić, 2006
Avtorica v videu in skozi video relizira neki novi način lastnega obstoja. Medij vode uspostavlja breztežinsko stanje in omogoča lahkotno gibanje telesa v vseh smereh. Telo avtorice plava na način meduze, gre torej za proces depersonifikacije. Video kombinira tri različne rešitve svetlobe: osvetljeno telo na črnem ozadju, zatemnjeno telo na belem ozadju in nevtralno polje sivih tonov.Add to playlist

Production: Bukovec, Vesna
Video is a part of White Performances / Positive Affirmations, a series calling out the deceptiveness of the ostensible happiness and illusions about a perfect life. We see a woman trying to accent her beauty and her perfect appearance and chanting a mantra, which is supposed to help her accept and love herself. Video is a parody of new age lifestyle which promotes the power of suggestive thoughts. The mantra is pointing out the absurdity of work automatism especially with so called women chores like cleani...Add to playlist

Production: E.S., 2011

With the help of a exaggerated make-up, which creates more and more age lines on the face and neck, the artist criticizes the exploitment of a youth-obsessed culture by cosmetics industry. Names of the rejuvenating and anti-age creams and related products are scrolling at the bottom. They are red out loud by a slow and distorted voice.Add to playlist
