Aleš Gregorič
The Scent of Skin
16. 9.–15. 11. 2020

Curator: Boštjan Soklič

Aleš Gregorič is one of the most prominent Slovenian photographers, who stems from analogue black-and-white photography, and has been active in the field of colour photography for the last few years. He is a creator who combines different photographic methods and approaches, fuses them and actualises them within the context of contemporary art. His works are exhibited in cycles, which are (non) related in terms of content. He also makes use of new technologies as required. The figurative cycle entitled The Scent of Skin consists of 12 large-format photographs, which disclose the artist’s usually brief and lucid view of the body in space and time.

The art language of Gregorič’s images is universal and existential in nature. His photographs show the other side of the contemporary world, different from the one the mass media and the social networks force-feed us with. He juxtaposes materialism, individualism and consumerism as the dominant pattern of civilisation with anonymous individuals without big stories; those that remain somewhere on the sidelines. They personify melancholy, discomfort, loneliness and hopelessness. This image also has obvious parallels with the way in which film is framed, something that comes spontaneously to Gregorič. The first, direct visual effect of the “frozen” frame is often truly cinematic, except that its narrative structure is subjective, completely left up to the viewer. The artist subtly creates memories of events in the viewer that have in fact never taken place on the factual (personal) level of the observer of the artwork.
