Exhibition: Everything I eat turns to health, beauty and love / Vse kar pojem, se spremeni v zdravje, lepoto in ljubezen (Solo presentation by Vesna Bukovec)
Location: Kulturni inkubator, Koroška 18, Maribor
Date: March 12, 2010 at 7pm

The exhibition is part of the project Videodinner / Video večerja

Curator: Aleksandra Saška Gruden

About the exhibtion:
In her recent projects Vesna Bukovec is exploring the impact of consumer society, shopping culture and popular positive psychology in the formation of identity, subjective well-being and self-image of the modern individual.

At the Videodinner she will serve delicious pancakes made of oatmeal and a series of videos on the topic of positive affirmation. A positive affirmation is a concept of popular psychology: it is a positive sentence repeated many times in order to impress the subconscious mind and trigger it into action.
Repetitive gestures and statements in videos will be joined with repetitive gestures of making pancakes.

About the Videodinner:
Videodinner project is a set of events to be carried out once a month. In each single evening the invited artist prepares a thematic video projection and conceptually connects it with the cooking addition. Each Video Dinner project is an individual concept by the invited author, drawing from his/hers personal attitudes, thoughts and interests. It may be a response to the current creative research, or to the previous work.
The set of Videodinners is diverse and covers a broad range of approaches and confessions.
The selection of artists is also diverse and is not limited to their space and time. Individual authors may focus on specific details: the color, shape, taste, purpose, content, design…
The selection of artists is made by Aleksandra Saška Gruden.

With the help of Aleksandra I made lots of pancakes.
Besides the White Performances/Positive Affirmations I have also presented my other videos and some of the videos from KOLEKTIVA.
