The Choice of Materials is Simple - reinforced cardboard, wooden laths and LED lights. The method of construction is basic, keeping the materials in their produced size to ensure they can be reused once the exhibition is dismantled.

A number of narrow corridors were created, which generate new ways of moving through the gallery. The strongly illuminated passageways give the visitor an experience of solitude and a visual distance when entering the long corridors while engaging with the audio artworks.

SAMA SEBI EDINA AVTORITETA
THERE IS NO AUTHORITY BUT YOURSELF

The inflatable light sculpture, set in the intimacy of a green courtyard in the centre of Ljubljana, shines in calm rhythm of breathing light. The object represents an independent human, in her most basic essence - without any authority other than her own.

The sculpture is larger and taller than the human body, as a human is more than just the matter in which she exists. Like a scan of the human aura, she glows on and slowly goes out, breathing, changing, offering light to an otherwise dark and secret public place.

She stands strong and bright at night but during the day, patient as a sleeping Venus, awaits her time to once again flourish into Full Life.

The soft and gentle exterior and the massive raw interior symbolize our daily interaction with the world. The 6-pointed symbol marks the spot and reminds of humble gratitude to the current reality.
