With its doors opening two years ago, Cukrarna has positioned itself as the heart of Ljubljana’s art, culture and social scene. Its programme has not only gained a following among local visitors but has also established itself as a popular spot for foreigners, who appreciate it as a venue featuring globally significant contemporary art. Our spring 2024 programme continues with showcasing projects that span from visual and intermedia art to sound, music and performance.

Mikhail Karikis
February 6–April 7, 2024

Mikhail Karikis will be the first artist to open the new “Moving Images” cycle in Cukrarna’s basement. The exhibition will be divided into three chapters, presenting five video works and a performance. Karikis is concerned with creating participatory projects that pinpoint alternative ways of human existence, solidarity and cooperation, without disregarding the dignity of the portrayed groups and a unique poetic expression. By developing new film-making strategies, he emphasises listening as a form of activism.

Extended Vision
February 16–May 26, 2024
The group exhibition featuring more than 20 Slovenian artists thematically refers to the phenomenology of perception. Through their creations, the artists play with the gaps in perception to trick the senses and challenge us to think about what is perceived when looking and what is heard when listening. They not only illuminate perception as a field of vision but also address the viewer’s presence in the space by incorporating sound and light elements and their refractive or reflective properties. Artists: Marko Batista, Uršula Berlot, Beti Bricelj, Ksenija Čerče, Sandi Červek, Vuk Ćosić, Dušan Fišer, Vadim Fiškin, Meta Grgurevič, Sanela Jahić, Danilo Jejčič, Damjan Kocjančič, Peter Koštrun, Blažka Križan, Oto Rimele, Nika Špan, Dušan Tršar, Vinko Tušek, Edvard Zajec, …

Tarek Atoui: Standing Waves
February 29–June 2, 2024

Tarek Atoui is an artist and electroacoustic composer, who explores the field of sound performance and composition. His pieces centre around conventional methods of perceiving sound and challenge the medium’s capacity to facilitate interpersonal communication. Atoui frequently collaborates with a diverse range of groups, including deaf individuals and accomplished musicians. Standing Waves is a new solo exhibition that has been adapted for the Cukrarna space. The installation includes works from his three projects The Wave, The Whisperers and 33 Soft Cells.

Exhibitions by Šejla Kamerić, Adrian Paci and Tobias Putrih
June 19–October 13, 2024

As we move from spring to summer, three solo exhibitions featuring Šejla Kamerić, Adrian Paci and Tobias Putrih will open simultaneously. Visitors will have the unique opportunity to engage in different artistic experiences while recognising the links between these extraordinary artists and their works.

Non-linear historical narratives and personal histories are the focus of Šejla Kamerić’s thematic inquiry. She directs her attention towards the politics of memory and the possibilities of individual resistance, emphasising the challenges facing women’s struggle. Through her insistence on empathy, the artist draws attention to and simultaneously constructs political discourses and sites of power. Curated by Galit Eilat.

The artworks of Adrian Paci are torn between the aesthetic object and the political tool. He makes effective use of the “viewer’s viewpoint” as he explores the position of the viewpoint in his video works as well as in his paintings. The communication with the viewer is not only shaped through a one-sided change of viewpoint but also through the introduction of a series of angles.  Curated by Pierre Bal-Blanc.

Continuing our commitment to ongoing collaboration with artists, we have invited Tobias Putrih to do a site-specific installation. In the upcoming project, the artist will utilise the architectural framework of Cukrarna to deconstruct an interior architectural feature explicitly present in the lobby. In this way, he will develop a unique scenography, within which the colour analysis of searches on Google will be shown.
