Ema Kugler - Hydra (00:15:45)
Production: V.S. Video, Forum Ljubljana, VPK, 1993
Mythology in the video works by Ema Kugler is inscribed in rituals of everyday life; this time it is the theme of Hydra with many facets. The theme is represented by the separate scenes featuring human figures in leather costumes (created by the artist herself) that constrain their movements, thus emphasising their separation from nature. The last trace of their respective connection is shown in a ritual relationship between a man and a bull, although even this relationship involves man's deeply ingrained c...Add to playlist

Ema Kugler - Postaja 25 / Station 25 (00:30:08)
Production: Forum Ljubljana & VPK, 1997
The artist continues with her main preoccupations: the relationship between a man and a woman, the irruption of the mythical into the rituals of everyday life. The video film uses the numerous potentials of electronic manipulation of the picture. The finest scenes are those of "morphing" (electronic transformation), where a figure from a painted canvas turns into an identical figure on the video screen, or the latter "freezes" into a figure on a fixed picture. The artist once again insists on the real natu...Add to playlist

Ema Kugler - Obiskovalec / The Visitor (00:26:41)
Production: V.S. Video / Forum Ljubljana, VPK & Viba film, 1995
The artist insists on the duality of human nature: the same dreadfulness is part of both the mythical and the real world. The duality is explicitly presented by means of electronic effects that can petrify a human face, or wall-up a human body in a few seconds. Human figures dressed in extravagant costumes are returned back to nature by means of electronic effects: a man in a costume reminiscent of a bird transforms into a real bird. The costumed and real birds are accentuated by the bird's eye view, which...Add to playlist

Ema Kugler - Menhir (00:35:16)
Production: Forum Ljubljana, VPK & TV Slovenija, 1999
Urbanity is finally erased with mythological rituals, which is defined by the title of the video film: menhir, a large upright standing stone from the Neolithic Period which was used in sacred rituals. A man and a woman are Adam and Eve who are formed before us with electronic transformation (morphing) and are marked by blood, which also marks all the other elements of the video image: murder of an individual committed by a menhir or the trinity (politics, church, army), bodies of dancers. Blood, murder a...Add to playlist

Ema Kugler - Homo Erectus (00:43:28)
Production: ZANK, 2000
This video features no words, only music and images. Ema Kugler describes the moving images as: “They are like a dark, surrealist dance of everyman with his own death. I have seen all these images. They came from the darkness of my subconsciousness, colonized me and obsessed me.” (Slovenian Film Fund) The video shows images, which together with the accompanying music give an impression of the infinite and the divine and being sucked into an abyss from where there is no return. The images bring us to...Add to playlist

Oliver Marčeta - Jesus von New Orleans (00:02:50)
Production:
White background with black wires forming a figure on it, tangling themselves and intertwining until the created character pins itself onto a cross like Jesus Christ, compose an expressive animation video work. The depth is strengthen by a shadow formed by the interspace between the wire and the background. The author reaches expressivity by manipulating the material in its rawness and economy.Add to playlist

Nataša Skušek - Lebdenje (00:04:31)
Production: 2004
V videu avtorica leži v vodi in spominja na Ofelijo, ki je postala ikona obupane ženske. Ko leži v vodi in mimo nje namesto rož, kot na sliki Ophelie Johna Evereta Millaisa, plavajo odsevi kamenja, je popolna. Ne upira se več igri okoli nje in izpolnila bo usodo, ki so si jo zamislili drugi. Vendar ta rumena obleka, zaprte oči in razprte roke naznanjajo, da nekaj sprejema. Zaveda se, da je odigrala dobro vlogo, ve, da bo preživela v našem spominu kot lepa podoba.Add to playlist

Ema Kugler - Tajga / Taiga (00:08:22)
Production: Forum Ljubljana & VPK, 1996
Video Taiga is made after eponymous performance carried out at the international festival of contemporary arts City of women in October 1995 in Ljubljana. The viewer enters a dark atmosphere, dictated by dramatic vocal-electronic music, threatening anthropomorphic and wax zoomorphic figures and the movement of the camera. 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

Ema Kugler - Za konec časa / For the End of Time (02:05:28)
Production: Zank & VPK, 2009
The video film is an investigation on man and his smallness in front of nature and time, the story is told by a voice-over narrator, with no dialogues between the characters. The camera slowly moves horizontally in panoramic views showing bright wide desert landscapes crossed by traces of death, alternated with futuristic interiors. Computer generated imagery plays an important role in this last work as in the previous ones by Ema Kugler and contributes to the creation of recurrent enviroments which are a p...Add to playlist

Maja Slavec - Revaluation (00:42:19)
Production: Partizanka, 2008
Video polje je reducirano na krog. Reducirano zato ker je še vedno prisotna črna površina, ki tvori razliko do pravokotnika. Krožna oblika in snemanje s ptičje persepktive ustvarjajo klaustrofobično vzdušje in akterjem ukradejo volumen. Volumen tako beremo bolj preko senc, kot preko perspektive. Subjekti prihajajo in odhajajo iz krožnega polja, plesalcu pa je krog tudi celotno polje delovanja. Avtorica se sprašuje o stopnji avtonomije, ki jo ima posameznik v družbi.Add to playlist

Mark Požlep - Fireplace, Axe and a Banana Peel (00:11:46)
Production: White Cross Production, 2008
Igrani video zaključuje avtorjevo tematiziranje namišljenih in personificiranih superherojev. Dogajanje je postavljeno v tesen domačijski ambient, kjer tije protagonisti – superheroji - skušajo živeti v sožitju. Zaradi karakternih posebnosti in velikega ega vsakega izmed njih je medsebojna komunikacija napeta, sobivanje pa skoraj nemogoče. Poskus sobivanja preraste v nasilje, pogubno za vse tri protagoniste. Skozi ludistično igro se superheroji - Batman, Bananaman in Superman – začno pretepati,...Add to playlist

Katjuša Kovačič - Njavke: Crossed-Eyed Gazes (00:14:53)
Production: 2015
Njavka je v slovanski mitologiji gozdno bitje ženskega spola. Predstavlja dušo deklice, ki je umrla nenaravne smrti. Njavke navadno živijo v skupinah globoko v gozdu ali v jamah, visoko v gorah. Dve njavki (performerki v animaličnem kostumu, ki posnema živalsko kožo, in v gibanju, ki je mešanica živalskega in človeškega) spremljamo v njunem naravnem, domačem okolju. Sledimo njunemu raziskovanju gozda: dotikamo se mahu na skalah, splazimo se v votlo drevesno deblo, ki je njun dom, oglašamo se...Add to playlist

Katarina Rešek - Napoleon (Napravi mi dete) (00:03:45)
Production: Napravi mi dete & UL AGRFT, 2016
Music video Napoleon tells the story of a young woman in search of love, lost in a violent relationship with another person, which results in a violent relationship with herself and further relationships of the same kind. The film opens up the issue of sexual identity and ends with a conclusion that this is and will continue to be a man’s world if women look at it through men’s eyes.
