Autumn by Clementine

Art and Films
The month of a second exhibition in the gallery K18. In fact, at the end of September, INFOPEKA told us that the gallery will be free for 2 weeks, so we can do something there. But we had only one week to create an event. We had decided to organize another exhibition. The idea was already in our minds, or rather that one of Jade. So, we decided to work about the traveling and attempt to recreate an ethnographic exhibition or a docu-fiction. To show how a foreigner try to enter and integrate themselves in a new land, news customs and be part of the group or the community. This exhibition brings the spectator wonder themselves about the notion of travel and exotic via all rites and customs of the hosting country.
So, we created our own land, to bringing back objects from nature and by photographing the traveler trying to integrate the community. With archives documents, objects who take all the space, photos and videos we invite the public to an immobile trip. Furthemore, there is a question on the false and the truth, the surreal to the real, does this trip has been carried out or is it just and idea, a concept? Over time, in trying to create this earth, perhaps we realized that it was after all, our new hosting country: Slovenia. Since, more than 6 months, we are here to try to accustom us to the standars of the country, to learn the customs, etc.

That was interesting to organize this exhibition, because we could work on the scenography, how to set up works, create directly works on the wall, etc. How to fill the space of the gallery? Although the exhibition is correct, the realization in just one week did not bring about the necessary elements has a complete exhibition, that's why I wish to repeat the experience in France, and why not improve it.

Then, from the 3st and the 5st of October, we have volunteered at STOPTRIK festival (stop motion animation festival) organized by 2 ex Polish EVS. Our task was to be present to the voting comitee. We should create the voting cards, be present to all the screenings and give voting cards to the audience (it was cool because we could watch all the films selectionned, it was very interesting). Then the last day, we should count votes to know who was the winner of the competition: Simulacra from Ivana Bošnjak and Thomas Johnson, here the link: .

We are in the third week of October, but I have the impression that we have already done a lot of projects.
