Anka Leśniak not only curated the great exhibition “Lost Element. Re-construction of the Witch” earlier this year at VBKÖ, but now also wrote this great article about the exhibition. I am very happy to be part of the exhibition and the TFR archive with the work “TREMATE”!

Here you can see the contribution from 27.10. – from min.07:28, an interview with Andrea Palašti.
…dies ist nicht die dokumentation einer performance, die in serbien entstand. dies ist ein gespräch, das wie unkraut wuchert, zwischen österreich und serbien.
what does it mean to be a ‘weed’?
vielleicht sind unsere gesprächsfäden unkräuter, lacht milica.
does it mean unwanted, taking resources from the wanted? or does it mean being resilient, a pioneer, a survivor?
ovo je razgovor koji ne vodi nikuda i ne mora biti od koristi.
weeds do work as well.
ko odlučuje da li sam korov ili ne?
– EXHIBITION & RESIDENCY –
The work “words & weeds” is based on the intervention created during the residency at Reflektor Gallery, Uzice (RS) in summer.
