What others see far, I leave behind

For the opening of the festival, we prepared a group exhibition titled What others see far, I leave behind and it opens at the Brijuni hotel on Thursday 26th of September starting from 7pm. From different parts of the world, we have works by seven artists: Tom Delion, Peter Fettich, Janne Garbowski, Jordan Hill, Brian LottiRicardo Napoli, and Pete Thompson.

The sound of the distance is loud and even though you don’t hear it, you feel it. Every time you miss somebody, every time you ache to go somewhere. You feel it in these images and you can hear it roar.

Kirill Korobkov secret exhibition

Kirill Korobkov had sent us some photos for Vladimir but he didn’t know about our plan for his exhibition so he is also on the hunt! This show titled Point and shoot is secret! It’s hidden somewhere in Fažana. And you have to find it to check it out. For the duration of the festival, we are gonna give you hints so stay in the loop with our website and facebook page!

Here are a few words about it from Kiril:

I like to think of traveling as the best university. It gives you knowledge and opens you eyes on places you’ve never heard of. It is also the most entertaining way to learn things and facts. Traveling helps you to understand better even yourself. Traveling and skateboarding is a powerful combo that makes both things even better. Skateboarding takes you to different places. Traveling makes skateboarding a better tool to discover our world. The proverb says that traveling is the only thing money can buy that makes you richer. After traveling with skaters for around 15 years I am not going to argue with it. We don’t remember days but we remember moments.

Becoming an object by Urška Preis

Becoming an object is a process that holds in its essence a productive contradiction, it’s a critique of a modern society, where everything alien or deviant gets reduced to a grotesque, marginalised object. The main focus is in a so-called ‘tramp stamp’, a phrase that’s transformed from meaning a sexually promiscuous female to a scarred consequence that comes from expressing an act of resistance, which is being a skater.

Urška Preis (1992) is a visual artist, musician and music journalist born in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Exhibition is set for Thursday night in Kasarna!

Davy Van Laere

Davy Van Laere photo exhibition is set up on Friday 27th in Fažana at the Piazza Grande, photos taken during the shooting of the video Mockba life by Paul Labadie.

Static XX

16MM STILL-TUNNEL SHOT

It is our great pleasure to announce the 20th year anniversary of Static video series multimedia exhibition that will take place at the Kaštel in Pula on Saturday night after the cinema projections.

The first Static was made in 1999 and who would have thought that the project would grow for over 20 years and hopefully even more.

Be sure not to miss it!

Julian Furones

Julian Furones was born in the Spanish city of León in 1984. When he was 17, he left his parents home to experience life in Barcelona where he worked as a pizza chef and dedicated his free time to skateboarding. He had been drawn to photographs as a visual memory aid ever since leaving his parental home. Nowadays he lives in Hamburg and uses photography every day as a personal diary. Julian’s photographic work is composed in a chaotic mix between his personal life and the people of the street.

The exhibition opens the Saturday program, 28th of September at the Kino Valli (Valli cinema) in Pula starting from 7pm.
