DK (Damjan Kocjančič) - Scotoma (EN)


DK (Damjan Kocjančič) was born in1970. In 1999 he received a KulturKontakt scholarship from Vienna, in 2004 and 2009 the scholarship of the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia, in 2007 and 2012 the scholarship of the ZDSLU, among other awards of foreign foundations. He exhibited in many major art institutions in Slovenia and abroad. His photos were published in various specialised media and publications, he also issued several monographs and book projects.

Scotoma is a project, in which the author explores the relationship between our imaginations and the real. It touches on the issues of quantum and participatory activity of our environment. At the same time, it is re-questioning the relationship of our performances and leverages that convince us that something is real. In addition to the sets with abstract motifs, landscapes from seemingly different corners of the world can be seen in the photos, although everything was recorded in the radius of 100 meters around the author's studio, located in the urban environment.
