In cooperation with the Slovenian Society of Art Critics and curator Meta Kordiš we (Photonic Wall / Katja Goljat & Andrej Firm) continued our work with liquid emulsion. The exhibited photographs show a series of repetitive motifs on various materials: wood, plasterboard, stone, porcelain and glass. We are exploring the range of material experimentation and photographic-lab process. The formal visual appearance of the selected motif thus itself is deformed by the reaction of the emulsion on the material and texture of the material. Although the motif of the tandem in this series is of secondary importance, because it wants the viewers to concentrate on the shape, texture and effect of the photographic process rather than content, it is nevertheless chosen deliberately. Therefore, the motif is a little puzzling, nostalgic and mysterious, which attracts the viewers attention.
