The exhibition

The exhibition TRANSFER >SLOVENIA shows the works of three artists from Slovenia and three artists from Upper Bavaria. The artists take part at the European Artists' Exchange between Koroska Fine Art Gallery in Slovenj Gradec and Schafhof – European House of Art Upper Bavaria in Freising near Munich. The idea behind the artists' exchange is for each partner institution to invite three artists from the other institutions' country or region on a three-month visit.

TRANSFER > SLOVENIA is an exhibition on the two floors of the House of Art including the large wooden vault on the first floor. It will show paintings, drawings, installations, sound and time based art.

The artists

Slovenian artists

Katja Felle
Born in 1988, lives and works in Slovenj Gradec and Ljubljana
Katja Felle's pictures are derived from the observation and abstraction of the characteristics and undesirable developments of modern society and their influence upon her as a person. She portrays them through a critical filter as an intermingling of aesthetic phenomena and structures, as an interaction between objects.

Jure Markota
Born in 1985, lives and works in Slovenj Gradec
In his installations Jure Markota uses the most diverse materials and everyday objects. His ironic gestures address the loss of autonomy of art and question the position of the artist. His works in public areas examine the boundary line between art and the environment in which we live.

Uros Weinberger
Born in 1975, lives and works in Ljubljana
Uros Weinberger's painting imitates the strategies of electronic media: topicality, dynamism, aesthetics. He breaks down the pictures into their component parts, separates the information from the original context, simulates significance and thus creates a seductive world of the fine arts which is simultaneously a trap.

Artists from Upper Bavaria

Daniel Door
Born in 1984, lives and works in Neubiberg and Munich
Daniel Door approaches his environment via the microphone. Experimental sound recordings e.g. of airplane wrecks, sparkling mineral water, the resonance of the whiskey bottle and feedback loops from corrugated sheet metal form the basis of his objects and installations.

Heike Jobst
Born in 1981, lives and works in Munich
In her working process Heike Jobst investigates the limits of mediality and material, of subjective perception and collective symbols. In this process she uses drawings on paper as a material for sculptural installations, and video projections as a pictorial means of creating additional space.

Moritz Walser
Born in 1981, lives and works in Munich
Moritz Walser works with large-scale installations and with photos and drawings, with paradoxes and visual irritations playing the part of the narrators. He develops sensitive abstractions and associative metaphors based on impressions left by the natural world, architecture and environment that surround him.
