ROBERTINA ŠEBJANIČ: NEOTENOUS DARK DWELLERS (LYGOPHILIA)
Robertina Šebjanič is an intermedia artist, with special focus in recent years on living systems, sound art, and installations of interactive ambient immersive environment. She began her research of proteus and axolotl, as well as the associated art project, at the Summer Lab 2018, organized by Bunker within Imagine 2020 network.
Opening of the Neotenous Dark Dwellers (Lygophilia) project will include a panel discussion where speakers will try to compare Slovene proteus (human fish) and Mexican axolotl, two similar creatures from two different continents, to reveal their common traits (both are endangered species), their biological features, and their cultural appropriation – both animals are also cultural and not only biological phenomena in their environment.
- Guests of the panel discussion: Carlos Pascual, Gregor Aljančič, Magdalena Năpăruș-Aljančič, Robertina Šebjanič, Annick Bureaud
Discussion is an introduction to the exhibition opening on August 31st at 7.00 p.m. The exhibition will be open until September 2nd, 2018.
