Damijan Kracina - Zoospective (00:11:53)
Subtitle: (Zoological Retrospective)
Production: 2000
The video summarises the basic motifs of the artist’s work: endangered species and fantasy animals of the future. It comprises an omnibus of five individual video pieces and additional raw video footage. First, we see ‘proteus’, a computer-generated olm in motion; which is followed by ‘An Interview with an Endangered Species’, featuring frontal shots of the Soča Trout opening its mouth as if it were speaking; these are combined with an Aquarium video showing the flight of the Soča Trout.

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

Damijan Kracina - Kracina TV (00:06:24)
Production: 1995
A hyper-realistic latex sculpture of the artist stands in the middle of a room in Kapelica Gallery, where the artist first presented the installation. The sculpture’s low pedestal is connected to seven monitors into which the figure gazes, while light boxes show photographs of cats run over by cars. The installation shows death doubled, or the absence of life. The cats are dead, and the statue, too, is lifeless. The images of dead cats not only draw attention to the cruel human attitude to animals and the...Add to playlist

Damijan Kracina - Thylacinus Cynocephalus (00:01:09)
Production: 2000
The video reconstructs the movements of the Tasmanian tiger (Thylacinus cynocephalus), which became extinct in 1936. A year before the video was created, the Australian Museum in Sydney began developing methods for preserving the genetic material of the animal in order to clone it in the 21st century, when appropriate technological procedures become available. Kracina watched the final footage of the Tasmanian tiger on TV and filmed it. He coloured the black-and-white shots and simulated the animal’s move...Add to playlist

Production: 1997
The video shows the last minute in the life of a dying ant which is stuck on an adhesive surface. At exhibitions, the static footage is presented on a miniature screen, with the ant practically life-size. The author discusses human irresponsibility and merciless treatment of animals, revealing that the death of even such a tiny creature is just as dramatic as any other.Add to playlist

Nataša Prosenc Stearns - Dvojnik (0:03:25)
Production: TV Slovenija, 1995
The idea of time connects with the image inherent in video, the encrustation of the picture, which allows for the free exchange of images from different worlds and periods. The double silhouette of a person delineates two time segments: the passing of daily life, and nocturnal fireworks. Both worlds pass from one shape to another, until they finally freeze into what they actually represent: a human statue.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

Subtitle: Izpolni mi željo
Production: 2000
Unedited recording of a performative action is following one of the authors holding a golden fish in his hand, hitting it on a white surface as he repeats a chant: “Grant me wish”.

Miha Vipotnik - Lenora (00:04:50)
Production: RTV Ljubljana, 1983
A folk song about a girl and her deceased lover, sung by Mateja Koležnik and Jani Kovačič. The dialogue of the two singers is followed by a sublime transition from one face to the other. With a constant turning of positives and negatives of images the faces are placed into spaces, which indirectly follow the text of the song. Dynamics of the image show an unconcerned approach to a problem of a portrait, as the latter sporadically almost blends with the colours of the landscape. Due to complete reduction...Add to playlist

Ema Kugler - Phantom (00:87:45)
Production: Zavod ZANK / VPK, Cankarjev dom, RTV Slovenija, 2003
Phantom je film o smrti, ki se ne sprašuje: "Kdo sem?", temveč: "Sem kdaj res bil tam ... v življenju? Sem kdaj zares živel? Ali ni bilo vse le zgolj iluzija, privid lažnega obstoja? Je sploh možno umreti? Kako uiti iz te verige neznosnih ponovitev; biti duša in biti meso vedno znova vedno znova! Je sploh možno videti drugega, takšnega, kot je? Ali ni tudi ta drugi le privid, naš miselni konstrukt, ki ga tako neizmerno potrebujemo, ker je to tisto, kar nam pomaga prilepiti našo raz...Add to playlist

Production: 1995
Hiperrealističen kip avtorja iz lateksa stoji sredi prostora v Galeriji Kapelica, kjer je umetnik prvič postavil instalacijo. Nizek podstavek kipa je povezan s sedmimi monitorji, v katere je uprt pogled figure. Na svetlobnih objektih so prikazane fotografije povoženih mačk. Instalacija prikazuje dvojno smrt oziroma dvojno odsotnost življenja. Mrtve so povožene mačke, neživ pa je tudi kip umetnika. S podobami mrtvih mačk umetnik ni opozoril zgolj na krut odnost človeka do živali, na davek človeko...Add to playlist

The artist conducted the performance on his 33rd birthday. Coated with white wax make-up he immovably lies in a sarcophague for an hour and a half, as long as Mozart's Coronation Mass lasts. With the performance the author partly relived Jesus's experience and predicted the death of human kind. Focused and clear shots of the performanc...Add to playlist

Zmago Lenardič - Suicide (00:04:10)
Production: 2006
Video explores the dynamics of a tragic event like the suicide by hanging. The digital colour manipulation of the images isolates the scene from any contest, emphasizing it on a dazzling background. The action, perceived in its essential elements, gains a dramatic and at the same time theatrical connotation, despite the surreal inversion of the roles between the man and the chair. By focusing on the intensity of the event thanks to a static shot and few close ups, the video generates a confusion between sub...Add to playlist

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
