The series of works is being created during a time of information overload and questions the established real and right, celebrating (non)sense. The artist addresses a piece as a condition that is activated through associations or the instantaneous response to the direct information she receives. In doing so, “mistakes” occur – situations that create an uneasy atmosphere, which is simultaneously extremely comfortable and liberated of meaning. Through strange, fragmented forms and textures, interruptions, repetition, ambiguity, fluidity, coincidence, nonsense, confusion, clumsiness and automatism, she seeks the moment of disturbance and works with what is.
Ajda Kadunc (1995) graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana in 2018 and is currently enrolled in the M.A. programme of Painting there. In the beginning of 2020, she attended a study exchange at the Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki. She draws her artistic processes from direct living circumstances, and is interested in coincidence, fluidity, absurdity, uncertainty, and overthrowing the constructed reality and normality. She views work as a certain condition, most often activated through the pressure of success or failure.
