the making of grapa
The making of grapa is a self-explanatory name, its story depicted in a series of three illustrated labels. This superior pomace brandy came to market in a co-production of the slovenian winery TILIA Estate and design agency KOFEIN DIZAJN. The destillation was superwised by most renown Slovenian spirit experts. More on BITCH, other underground creatures and secret ingredients can be found on the website themakingofgrapa.com.
labyrinth of art
art project executed by zavod exodos ljubljana, 2010
Walking has a long cultural history, from vagrants to Japanese wandering poets and English Romantics and contemporary long-distance walkers.
Walking (as art) inspired me to explore relationships between time, distance, geography, and measure. It also enabled me to extend the boundaries of sculpture, investing it with the potential to become de-constructed in space and time. The sculpture of material and form, as well as of place.
I was thinking about a work of art that could change in time. In such a case the artist must renounce the control over the work and allow that the form follows its own development and change according to natural laws.
To create a labyrinth means to place nature in the centre of artistic work. It also means to promote a new, unusual place for reading, thinking, and meeting, which attracts both local inhabitants and curious visitors.
