Day by Day
Škuc Gallery, Ljubljana, Slovenia
12 December 2014 – 9 January 2015
assistant curator of Saša Nabergoj and Simona Žvanut
Day by Day focuses on the exploration of drawing in the form of a diary entry, drawing that is therefore produced in a more or less organized sequence and records daily impressions, ideas, memories or flow of thoughts. The drawings have been produced in different situations (the hustle and bustle of the daily life of a 4-million Turkish city, the domesticity of the early morning ritual of drinking tea, the hospital and rehabilitation centre …), on various supports (from receipts, diaries, scraps of paper of different sizes and colours, rolls of paper … ), during different times (the most recent stem from the time of preparing the exhibition, the oldest date from the mid-1970s). The drawings thus compose a cacophonic image of the personal and public worlds of the five participating artists, which even intertwine with one another from time to time.

Beli sladoled (White Ice Cream) is the name of the artistic duo or painting group. Their definition of art group does not exactly specify whether it is a real painting group, or the name is just a construct, an art project, a kind of concept in which we are also captured as victims of their artistic antics. Anyway, the group is led by its founding and only members Miha Perne and Leon Zuodar, who say that Beli sladoled is a painting group that paints with its right and left (hand).
