The Visitor Talks – Jasmina Cibic

December 14, 2016 from 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
CCS Bard, Classroom 102

Slovenian artist Jasmina Cibic works in performance, installation, and film, employing a range of activity, media, and theatrical tactics to redefine or reconsider the currency and formats of national representation. Looking through the lens of soft power, Cibic re-envisions nationally representative architecture and art as props and framing devices that nation states and political bodies use when they assert control and enact protocol rituals. Her recent works focus on case-studies such as the Non-Aligned Movement, 20th century EXPO presentations and the rebranding of former Yugoslavia.
The artist’s immersive film installations often include durational performance, experimental theatre, and variations of delegated creations of artistic objects and spaces which combine the work of architects, musicians, scientists, and craftsmen as well as factory- made products, all chosen for specific contextual and historical significance. Cibic represented Slovenia at the 55th Venice Biennial and has recently held solo exhibitions at MSU Zagreb, MSU Belgrade, MGLC Ljubljana, Ludwig Museum Budapest and group shows at Esker Foundation, MNHA Luxembourg, MG+MSUM Ljubljana and HKW Berlin. Her upcoming exhibitions include MAC Belfast, Pera Museum Istanbul, Ambika P3, DHC Art Montreal and the National Gallery of Macedonia.
