Part of Coast to Coast
The exciting Slovenian artist, Jasmina Cibic, works in performance, installation and film, employing a range of activity, media and theatrical tactics to redefine or reconsider the currency and formats of national representation.
Looking through the lens of soft power, Cibic re-envisions nationally representative architecture and art as props and framing devices that nation states and political bodies use when they assert control and enact protocol rituals. Her recent works focus on case studies, such as the Non-Aligned Movement, 20th Century EXPO presentations and the re-branding of former Yugoslavia.
The artist’s immersive film installations often include durational performance, experimental theatre and varieties of delegated creations of artistic objects and spaces which combine the work of architects, musicians, scientists and craftsmen as well as factory-made products, all chosen for specific contextual and historical significance.
The film Nada Act II was recorded at Aarhus City Hall and will have its world premiere at 'O' Space on April 22.

About Coast to Coast
Aarhus 2017 is putting art Coast to Coast in a series of works and projects that bring some of the world´s leading artists to the Central Denmark Region. These site-situational, context specific and special exhibitions are made as new commissions for townships, art spaces and across municipal borders.
In our European Capital of Culture year we also commemorate the 500 Year Anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation, so we explore the ‘word’ through a series of new text and sound pieces by some of the most highly acclaimed conceptual artists exploring philosophy, homilies and idiomatic language.
And in our year in which we examine our Danish DNA within the European context, artists help us reflect upon society in flux through transient gestures and atmospheric installations.
