Moderna galerija (MG+), Ljubljana
03.06 – 18.09.2016
The 8th Triennial of contemporary art – U3 was open from 3rd of June till 18th of September in the space of Moderna gallery (MG+), Museum of Contemporary Arts Metelkova (+MSUM) and Reaktor centre Podgorica in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The exhibition under the curatorial framework of Boris Groys was titled Beyond the Globe and it gathered both Slovenian and international artists. More about the Triennial can be viewed here.
Femkanje presented the work Radio Mapping the Independent Scene, a 16-channel audio installation consisting of the shows produced in the first season of the radio show. The total of 64 shows, broadcasted on NOFM radio from March 2013 to June 2014, are mapped onto 16 separate speakers representing 16 months of work. All of the shows are played simultaneously giving rise for more then 70 independent actors, of disunited and poorly organised scene, to finally be heard in one voice. The installation is followed by a chronologically ordered and detailed list of all of the speakers and as well by a booth where you can listen to a selected episode in full.
On the topic of Cosmos / Accompanying text, a commentary to the curatorial framework of Boris Groys and the topic of Cosmos and Cosmic Anxiety.
The installation Radio Mapping the Independent Scene has been previously presented at the exhibition Zig-Zag, curated by Lenka Djorojevic at the 21st City of Women festival of conemporary art in Ljubljana in 2015.
