About the project

With the project In the Lap of Cultural and Natural Heritage the CCC Institute together with its partners (Sotočje Medvode public institute, BB BIO.Si and Pr’ Lenart Homestead) won the LAS za mesto in vas tender co-funded by the Slovenian Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Food from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.
The House on the Hill presents a small part of the In the Lap of Cultural and Natural Heritage project. The House on the Hill has been carried out for the sixth year now. Our goal is dissemination in time and space of modern art which not only makes part of cultural heritage, but also of natural beauties in the surroundings of Ljubljana.

The exhibition’s goal is to allow for both, the intertwining of the works of artists complementing each other, and independent exhibition of their works. The exhibition will develop over two years. In 2020, the exhibition will present works of individual artists and the model of the table that will be built over the next year as the communal artistic work, which will link artists with people from our village, our municipality, the Ljubljana region as well as from Slovenia, Europe, and our planet Earth to reach That beyond, which is Common to all of us.

The word MIZA consists of two parts: of the syllable MI, which means US – group of people, and the syllable ZA, meaning that we stand together FOR a common cause; that we are FOR something; that we stand for a cause. So, MIZA (TABLE) is a symbol denoting an object at which most different groups, big and small communities get together. In our case artists decided to engage in common creative work, while being aware that it is a risky path to take, because we live in times, when partnerships tend to break up quickly, and times that are not favourable of the deepening of links, but force upon us speed and instant effects gone wild, bringing disintegration rather than enabling connections. While WE are FOR (MI smo ZA) the realisation of the emphatic co-existence of sensitive individuals.
