Workshop: Space as canvas / Collage associations

Layer House
Saturday, August 13 at 5 pm


Under the mentorship of Maruša Štibelj participants will create spatial collages that will connect cut and pasted words with space/surroundings. They will look for unusual associations and visually connect them with the photo. The workshop is based on relaxed exploration of the environment and the content it offers. Participants will ask questions about the meaning of words and visual messages, and about their connection.

Maruša Štibelj (1986) earned her BA in Art education at the Faculty of Education of the University of Ljubljana. She exhibited her collage work on solo and group exhibitions in Slovenia and abroad. Some of the recent exhibitions include Galerija Priča (Samobor, CRO), Trart Gallery (Trieste, IT), Collagistas Festival 2017 (Milano, IT), Sketching connections (Zagreb, CRO), ZDSLU Gallery (Ljubljana, SI), Palazzo Gopcevich (Trieste, IT), Gallerie im Schloss (Spitall, AT). She is art director of KAOS festival. In her work she always tries to extend the boundaries of the collage media, and all the colours she uses in her work are made of the material itself. She lives and works in Kranj, Slovenia.
