In his work, visual artist Maks Bricelj turns discarded objects into showcases and places them within the public space. These showcases create locations of potentiality for interaction with the audience and their participation in the piece. The attempt to establish a community of viewers around the showcases ultimately fails, yet the cases can nonetheless become scenes of use when other living creatures begin to utilise them.
Maks Bricelj (1991) graduated in Painting from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana in 2016. He is currently enrolled in an M.A. programme at the Department for Sculpture. His work has been featured in the solo exhibition 1991 (DobraVaga, Ljubljana 2016) and several group exhibitions, including Samo (Kapsula, Ljubljana 2019 and the Pivka House of Culture, Pivka 2018), Open Call (Škuc Gallery, Ljubljana 2017), Community Kit (MAO, Ljubljana 2017) and Neki piše (Vodnik Homestead, Ljubljana 2017).
The Solo Exhibition Cycle is a series of exhibition projects in the upper lobby of Kino Šiška, prepared each year by a curator of the younger generation.
