P L A T E AU R E S I D U E: Apertures in the landscape
P L A T E AU R E S I D U E is an artistic tandem consisting of Eva Pavlič Seifert and Aljaž Celarc.
The exhibition questions the meaning of the material remains of the past eras, obscure technologies from the past and the process of nature returning to areas that have been changed by humans in the past with the help of technology. The atmospheric light and sound installation provides a unique sensory experience and acquaints the visitor with the obscure technical heritage of defensive structures in the abandoned and overgrown area of the Treaty of Rapallo border.
The visitor enters the darkened space with special photophonic lamps that emit sound waves with the use of light, thereby changing the audio-visual narrative.
This is the transfer of the exhibition that was on display in November 2022 at the artKIT exhibition center in Maribor. Production of KIC Kibla.
Photo-sound installation will be open until 25th January 2023.

P L A T E AU R E S I D U E (Slovenian: Ostanek Planote) is the imaginary identity of the award-winning duo Aljaž Celarc (B.Sc. Geography [Faculty of Arts] and M.Sc. Photography [AKV St. Joost, NL]) and Eva Pavlič Seifert (B.Sc. Art .history [Faculty of Arts] and M.A. Visual Culture [Aalto University, FI]). In their works, they deal with landscape ecology and new media and seek new ways of raising public awareness. The starting point of their artistic production is video installations. In their works, they give voice to the project participants and collaborators, natural forms such as rocks, air, organisms and other aggregates of matter, which they reorganize into new unusual forms and new media systems. The tandem lives and works in Novi Kot, in the hinterland of the Goteniška gora and Snežnik forests.
They exhibited independently in the KiBela art space, the Flora Gallery in Dubrovnik, the Museum of Contemporary Art (+MSUM) in Ljubljana, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Novi Sad, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Rijeka, the Miklova Hiša Gallery, the Šiška Cinema, the Božidar Jakac Gallery in Kostanjevica na Krka, Vžigalica Gallery, Monitor Gallery in Izmir, IMPAKT Festival, City Museum in Ljubljana, Switzerland and Kunstraum Kreuzberge/Bethanien in Berlin.
