For her first solo exhibition, Ema Kobal is presenting a 15-metre graphic that nonetheless entails just one moment. In order to catch this moment in its entirety, the viewer has to walk through the story taking place in frozen time. The sharp and childishly naive black-and-white figures playfully slide and intertwine across the icy floor, with the author herself playing with the randomness of impressions and strokes during the artistic process.
Ema Kobal (1997) enrolled at the music academy in Salzburg after finishing secondary school, studying the cello. Currently, she is studying Video and New Media at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana. She regularly collaborates with pianist Bowrain, performs with the musical and theatre ensemble Karavana, and occasionally writes music for theatre productions. She is a member of the Podmladek collective, which holds group exhibitions. In her art, she expresses herself through various media, recently being interested mostly in experimenting with graphic techniques.
