Despre

CERCUL 
de Neja Tomšič / NONUMENT Group

Instalație teatrală imersivă cu narațiune

Neja Tomšič este artistă vizuală cunoscută la nivel național și internațional pentru eseul vizual Opium Clippers. Renumită pentru munca meticuloasă de cercetare în realizarea unui performance, Neja Tomšič este de asemenea o povestitoare de excepție, care construiește povești în jurul unei simple cești de ceai, pornind de la o gură din prețiosul lichid și ajungând la o istorie întreagă despre schimbările coloniale și mercantiliste din lume.

Neja Tomšič face parte din colectivul Nonument Group, un grup de artiști, arhitecți și teoreticieni interdisciplinari a căror activitate derivă din cercetare, mai ales în spații publice. “Nonumentul” este definit ca arhitectură, monumente, spații publice și infrastructură, al căror sens s-a schimbat ca urmare a schimbărilor sociale sau politice. 

Instalația teatrală Cercul a fost creată ca parte din proiectul Stronger Peripheries: A Southern Coalition, pornind de la una dintre temele explorate în cadrul acestuia: Work and Happiness. Performance-ul s-a dezvoltat de-a lungul rezidențelor artistice din Cluj (RO), și Mondaino (IT), în cadrul cărora Neja și colegii ei din Nonument Group și-au axat cercetarea pe parcurile publice ca puncte nevralgice ale vieții publice. 

Elementul central al cercetării îl constituie Parcul Feroviarilor din Cluj, parc care a suferit numeroase transformări de-a lungul timpului. Folosind diferite metode de cercetare și înregistrare, Neja Tomšič a explorat punctele de întâlnire dintre stadiul actual al parcului și istoria acestuia, urmele trecutului care se întrevăd în forma lui prezentă și care sunt păstrate în amintirea și imaginația celor care au trăit în jurul lui. 

Premiera a avut loc în 23 august 2022, în cadrul festivalului Mladi Levi din Ljubljana, Slovenia.

CIRCLE
by Neja Tomšič / NONUMENT Group

immersive documentary installation with narration

Neja Tomšič is a visual artist who made a name for herself both in the national and international arena with Opium Clippers – a performance she describes as a visual essay – as a performing artist who builds her work on meticulous and in-depth research. She is also an exceptional storyteller who can develop a narrative from a cup of tea, starting from a small sip of the precious liquid to colonial and mercantilist shifts in the world order.

Neja Tomšič is part of the Nonument Group collective, a group of interdisciplinary artists, architects, and theorists who derive their artistic actions from research, mostly in public spaces. Nonument is defined as architecture, monuments, public spaces, and infrastructure, the meaning of which has changed as a result of social or political changes. 

Circle was created as part of the Stronger Peripheries: A Southern Coalition project, based on the themes of work and happiness. During artist residencies in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, and Mondaino, Italy, Neja Tomšič and her group explored public parks as neuralgic points of public life.

The starting and focal point of the theme is a specific park, the park of railroad workers in Cluj-Napoca, which has undergone many transformations. Using various recording and research methods, Neja Tomšič explored its history and current state, and particularly the remnants of the past that are layered in the earth – material relics, and are also stored in the imagination and memories of people and other living beings.

Premiere: August 23rd 2022, Cukrarna Gallery, Ljubljana, as part of Mladi Levi Festival
