Stano Filko: Poetry on space – cosmos
“There has never been a time when I found it easy or hard to create. It’s because I don’t create, it’s my inner fanatic duty.” Stano Filko, 1996
The exhibition Poézia o priestore – kozme / Poetry on Space – Cosmos represents Filko’s work and thinking in the 1960s and 1970s, extended by newer work, layers of artistic interventions and the retroactive arrangement of meanings.
More than 150 artworks and two archive binders containing approximately 120 works will be presented at the exhibition. This multi-media display contains sculptures and objects (altars of contemporaneity) from the 1960s, two environments from the same period, sound-art work on LPs from the early 1970s, film and installations of the artist’s slides. A number of early works on paper which reveal the artist’s mind in the 1960s and 1970s are also on display. They are presented in a wide array of project sketches, drawings, text-art and photo-installations.
