Galerie Ernst Hilger, Wien / Österreich

„…Und das ist der Grund, warum Mladen Stilinovics Spruch „Ohne Faulheit keine Kunst.“ in der modernen marktorientierten Kunstwelt mit ihrer Hyperproduktivität immer noch wichtig ist. Das Bett als Ort zum Träumen oder als Kritik am kapitalistischen Kulturparadigma? Vuk Cosic und die Gruppe IRWIN gehen jedenfalls nicht von der Annahme aus, dass das Bett ein Sehnsuchtsort sei. Auch Raša Todosijevics vielsagend Schlafflagge betiteltes Werk entfaltet erst im Kontext betrachtet seine Kritik. Poetische Nebentöne wiederum sind der Schlüssel zu den Arbeiten Vlado Marteks, während man bei der Fokus Grupa unmissverständlich eine Polemik auf utopische Geschichtsvorstellungen erkennen kann.... Kunst steht immer im Kontext von Raum, Zeit und Präsentationsform. Ihr Kern besteht darin, dass alles auf die Perspektive ankommt.“ (Alenka Gregoric. Sie ist seit 2009 künstlerische Leiterin und Kuratorin der City Art Gallery Ljubljana.)

“…Nowadays, idle lounging in bed is also a luxury. At a time when productivity is almost exclusively valued, laziness has become a despised human trait. This is what makes the statement by Mladen Stilinovic “There is no art without laziness.” so relentlessly essential in the modern market-oriented art world of hyper-production. The bed as a place to express fantasies or as a commentary on the capitalist paradigm of culture? The basic premises of the work by Vuk Cosic and the IRWIN group do not arise from the supposition of the bed as a place of desire, nor does the work of Raša Todosijevic with its meaningful title Schlafflagge, nevertheless the context of their placement dictates the way these artworks are read. Poetic connotation is key in the works of Vlado Martek, whereas the polemics concerning the utopian ideas of history can be discerned in the work of Fokus grupa. Art is always part of a wider picture of the space, time and context of presentation. Essentially it all depends on perspective.” (Alenka Gregoric. Director and curator of City Art Gallery Ljubljana since 2009.)“…Nowadays, idle lounging in bed is also a luxury.
