As part of the ZINE VITRINE international open call for zines, photographer Lucija Rosc is presenting an exhibition and a new publication, in which she continues her collection and documentation of birthday maypoles. Delighted with the creativity and variety of the maypoles people erect in their hometowns and their vicinity to mark various jubilees, she has been photographing the maypoles since 2016. In certain communities, such decorative efforts strengthen bonds, functionally approaching rituals in contemporary times.
Each year, the ZINE VITRINE exhibition, workshop and zine reading room programme, located in the DobraVaga Gallery, invites artists of various profiles to participate in an international call for zines, with the selected artists realizing an exhibition or zine production, as well as a broader presentation of their creative work or specific ideas. According to last year’s jury, Lucija Rosc’s zine To so korale (2018) stood out among the submissions received.
Lucija Rosc (1995) graduated in 2018 from the Higher School of Applied Sciences in Ljubljana. She has held three solo shows and participated in several group exhibitions in Slovenia and abroad.
