URŠULA BERLOT: Attractions – Similarities (2013)

Monitor; video; four kinetic objects with magnets and metal particles (dim: diameter 12 cm)
Artefact: one module

Uršula Berlot is searching for subtly perceptual, invisible, intangible, but indeed very much present organisational principles in nature and our perceptions. Multimedia project Attractions – Similarities is focusing on magnetism as a physical phenomenon, which is being visualised in different ways – with kinetic objects, video recording, drawings and photographs of exaggerated configurations of particles. The consequences of this invisible natural activity – audio and visual recordings of movement of magnetic particles – metaphorically speak about strange internal order of vaguely coincidental or chaotic (natural and mental) phenomena and simultaneously question the certainty of our cognitive abilities to distinguish between animate and inanimate, natural and unnatural.

Museum of Transitory Art

MoTA –

Museum of Transitory Art

MoTA is a multidisciplinary platform dedicated to advancing the research, production and presentation of transitory, experimental, and live art forms.

MoTA is a museum without a permanent collection or a fixed space. Instead, its programs are realised in different locations and contexts in temporary physical and virtual spaces.

MoTA organizes and supports transitory art in the form of continuous events, exhibitions and educational programs both locally and internationally. As its name indicates, MoTA examines what a museum can be today and in the future.

MoTA is in constant search for the new, the uncertain, and the undefined.

MoTA works on several continuous programmes & projects. We run MoTA Point – a Space for Art & Ideas, we curate and produce the annual SONICA Festival, in addition to regular music programmes such as SONICA Series and SONICA Classics.

Within the years of running our residency programme, we’ve established T.R.I.B.E. – a network of residency spaces in the Balkans & Eastern Europe.

We’ve also initiated the research and archive platforms ArtistTalk.eu and Mediateque MoTA & Tomaž Brate. Our educational programmes serve a broader audience with ongoing workshops, talks, symposia, and internships.
