The 7th edition of Biennial of Slovenian Visual Communications, one of major national expert events in visual arts, is again bringing a critical two-year review of Slovenian production in design. The works that have been selected for the shortlist by the five-strong international jury, will be on display in the National Gallery, Ljubljana between 20 October and 22 November.
International Design Event, organised within the 7th Biennial, will feature internationally acclaimed names from the world of design: Michael Bouvet (France), Liza Enebeis (Netherlands), Merijn van Velsen (Netherlands), Leonardo Sonnoli (Italy), Max Gadney (UK) and Artur Rebelo/R2 (Portugal). Their lectures will take place in Kino Šiška on Tuesday 20 October from 10 am to 3 pm. Admission to lectures is free of charge.
Liza Enebeis and Merijn van Velsen: Everything
Collecting, writing, books, radio, errors, manuscripts, love, fear, typography, universe, the Netherlands, being a foreigner, studio, football, obsession, colour, memory, control, poetry, Scarlett Johansson and design.
Artur Rebelo: R2: Processes/Projects
While working on their commissioned projects, art directors at R2 find various elements (documents, images, objects…) that contribute to their personal projects, which in turn influence their work.
Michel Bouvet: Poster, art on the street
Experience of a poster artist in Paris and while travelling the world.
Bouvet will speak of his creative work and present his sketches, original drawings, photographs… posters in the making, as well as some photographs that he took far and near, including his Tokyo exhibition.
Leonardo Sonnoli: Scented letters
Sonnoli will present his work, mostly related to a typographic interpretation of contents (metaphorically: Sonnoli considers his works to be love letters and will therefore show how he scents his typography without smudging the ink). He will discuss the importance of cultural roots, citing some examples of works that inspire him.
Max Gadney: Honesty and X-rays: Why information design should not lie
The world is governed by data – and it is designers who enable us to see this new world and get around it. Rather than just tools for decorative art projects – the data help us improve our world.
