Artist: Hribernik, Jasna
Title: Lok Telesa / The Body Bow
Genre: Art video / Fiction
Production: Sfinga, TV Slovenija
Camera: Jure Pervanje
In the late seventies, the expressive dancer Jasna Knez travelled through the former Yugoslavia creating new dance elements inspired by the particularities of individual cultural surroundings. The video traces her steps during the nineties, but now they are often viewed as absurd documents of the post-war period. The layering of the images combines body movements and the geography of space, but their visual harmony is disturbed by a graphic sign undergoing several transformations, including an animated drawing. The graphic sign was made in the manner of the old Bogomilian gravestones from the 14th and 15th centuries, which are among the most original works of European folk art and document the crossing of different cultures.
