New works contributed to the collection last year include: Luna Woelle, Ferenc Grof, Art van Triest, Urša Prek. They join the works of more than twenty internationally renowned local and international artists and artist groups, including Tristan Perich, Andy Lomas, Ursula Berlot, Stavinsky, Adam Basanta, and others.

The exhibition will open on Saturday 25 May at 7pm at MoTA LAB Gallery, Celovška 42B. The opening will take place in the presence of some of the artists.

On Saturday, 25 May, at 6 pm, we would like to invite you to the presentation of the current productions of the Nonument Group. Projects such as The Shining Invisible City, From Nowhere to Nowhere (The Pioneer Railway) and The Cabinet of the Future will be presented by Nonument Group founders Neja Tomšič and Martin Bricelj Baraga.

Nonument Group is a multidisciplinary research and art collective. The mission of the collective is to explore the hidden, abandoned and forgotten architecture of the 20th century and to carry out artistic interventions to draw attention to its existence.

Youth Day celebrations and socialising to follow!

Vadim Fishkin
Vadim Fishkin’s work explores the relationships between science, personal experience, desire, and the imagination, between metaphysics and pragmatism, and between the artificial and the real. The artist succeeds in uncovering subtle connections that arouse viewers’ curiosity, yet leaves them guessing about the ultimate meaning. Fishkin’s main area of investigation is science and its study methods as he uses technological advances for essentially poetic purposes and many of his installations, sculptures, photographs, and drawings are informed by his distinctive sense of humor.

His work has been presented in numerous group and solo exhibitions, including at four Venice Biennials (in 1995, 2003,  2005, 2017); the 1st Valencia Biennial; the Manifesta 1, Rotterdam; Manifesta 10, Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg ,the 3rd Istanbul Biennial; the 8th Baltic Triennial of International Art, Vilnius; eva+, Limerick; Casino Luxembourg, Luxembourg; the Secession, Vienna; Galerie Nationale du Jeu de Paume, Paris; FRAC Lorraine, Metz; Moderna galerija, Ljubljana, Galerija Gregor Podnar; Galerija Škuc, Ljubljana; Contemporary Art Center, Moscow;  Galerie für Zeitgenössische Kunst, Leipzig; Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin; Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin; Palazzo dell Ragione, Milano; BAWAG Foundation, Vienna; ZKM, Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe; MACRO Museum for Contemporary Art, Rome; Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston; and the Drawing Center, New York; 9th Shanghai Biennale, Shanghai.

Natura Morta / Anamarija Dimovska
Natura Morta’s work explores the impermanence of nature within the traditional still life genre. Glaze significantly contributes to the appearance of a ceramic object, becoming a defining aspect of its form and merging the two elements into a cohesive and expressive whole. This approach adds complexity to the visual and tactile qualities of the work. Creating still life compositions within the everyday object genre involves capturing the beauty and significance of ordinary items with a unique and recognizable poetics.

Anamarija Dimovska (1986, Kranj) graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana from the Department of Restoration (2010) and the Department of Ceramics & Glass (2017). In 2012/13, she perfected her skills at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin as part of an Erasmus Exchange program. Since 2015, she has been creating studio ceramics under the artistic name Natura Morta.

Gala Alica
Gala Alica deals with problematics of urban space and the thin line between private and public space. Gentrification and privatization of public spaces, their historical narratives, and with it, the question of their inclusiveness/exclusiveness are the starting points of her research for sculptures and site-specific interventions. Through explorations of broader socio-political contexts and usage of elements of our built environment, the artist investigates characteristics of human relationships, intimacy and alienation.

She is currently studying visual arts at die Angewandte, the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, and has a bachelor’s degree in sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana. She also studied at the University of Art and Design in Linz. Solo exhibitions include Stuck in Motion (Pražirna AB3, Prague, CZ, 2023), Someone’s Land (Gallery Alkatraz, Ljubljana, SLO, 2022), and Generated Views (Gallery Nova Izložba Pešak, Ljubljana, SLO, 2022). Her works have been exhibited as part of many group exhibitions, among others also in In the Open (Kunsthalle Exnergasse, Wien, AT), Grit in the Eye, Stone in the Shoe (Gallery Courtney Jeager, Basel, CH), Rally: (Bistro21, Leipzig, DE) and The Stone is the Skin (Zink Wien, Wien, AT).

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.
