Francisco Tomsich -> ELEGIJA | ELEGY

Published on July 4th, 2020

Exhibition/ complex video ambiental installation by Slovene-Uruguay artist Francisco Tomsich entitled Elegija (Elegy).

Next event:

Finissage/ in-situ performance/concert: 21.7.2020 -> 20:00 hours

/closing time is the opportunity for analogic beings to inhabit the space and add to elegiac dominance/

The installation setup is totally site-specific – for the new space of Cirkulacija 2 in Ajdovščina subway (-> Podhod Ajdovščina 2). Also, this is the first large project in the new space – and in this strange times.

Elegija (Elegy) is a mournful song performed by ensemble of video installations, sculptures and sound installation – made specifically for Cirkulacija 2’s premises.

Vernissage/ opening: Friday 10.7.2020 -> 20:00 hours

Open doors day: 17.7.2020 -> 13:00 to 22:00 hours

Finissage/ in-situ performance/concert: 21.7.2020 -> 20:00 hours

and at random hours between 11th and 20st July 2020

The starting point of this collaboration between Cirkulacija 2 and Francisco Tomsich is an extensive series of short, meditative, monochromatic, circular experimental films based on the manipulation of the authors’ video diaries and aimed to be shown as large-format video installations.

The works from the Silent Works series may be developed from a very simple, though rare or disturbing find (then having a strong documentary character). Other pieces are complex, multilayered collages with a narrative character. Some others are visual essays based on montage and editing and may include texts of various kinds and purposes. I put them into groups named “Meditations”, “Essays” or “Natures mortes”.

Elegija will introduce a selection of recent Silent Works which share a melancholic, sad and mournful character. The original footage upon the final pieces are built was made in Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina), Montevideo (Uruguay) and various cities and locations of Croatia, Serbia and Slovenia between 2014 and 2020.

The dialogue between them pretends to create a visual connection between landscapes and events which are different in character and origin but point out at the same time to certain specific issues and themes they elaborate and repeat: the dialectics of the human-made and nature, the figure of the eccentric, the performativity of daily habits and situations, death, history as repetition…

I hope to create with them a repertory of moving representations which would function as symptoms and allegories of wider social diseases, models of resistance and monuments of/to time gone.

These video pieces will dialogue with a site-specific installation of objects and sculptures sharing the same character, as it is evident in the references they make and the stories they talk about through their material and scale.

The Silent Works are, of course, silent. However, this collaboration with Borut Savski and Cirkulacija 2 implies the production of an immersive sound installation based on the manipulation of the videos’ data as live-produced/ real-time randomized sound event generation that never really repeats itself. We hope to create that way an ambiance where the spectator can focus on simple and concrete visual and loud things while being at the same time part of a bigger and more complex environment where one can lost him or herself and then confirm, or deny, the elegiac character of the exhibition, and its critical, realist and soul-stirring aspirations.
