The Ivan Grohar Gallery presents a conceptual project titled Wrapped in a Cocoon by the multimedia artist Katja Bogataj, a member of the Škofja Loka Artists’ Association and a representative of a younger generation of artists. Most of her works deal with socially engaged subjects, in her latest exhibition, however, the focus has also shifted onto the fields of archetypes, psychoanalysis and collective consciousness. As part of the Wrapped in a Cocoon exhibition, Katja
Bogataj explores a topic she has been occupied with for a number of years. Through her exploration of (subjective) spider-related themes, the depths of subconscious and the mise-en-scène with elements of science fiction films, the artists reveals social anomalies, while exposing the stereotypes and fears all of us are faced with in the grip of global disharmonies.
Conceptually, the exhibition is a bipolar whole, consisting of wall installations in the first exhibition room and a spatial installation – an oversized model of a spider cocoon, a delusive shelter – in the second room. The artistic artefacts are rounded off with an animated film.
