By drawing a thin grid on the walls of the exhibition space, Miha Štrukelj connects the individual video art pieces in the gallery with each other, and in doing so creates a narrative where past and present intertwine. His work also exposes the fragility of the status quo by depicting our post-1989 world as a gigantic construction site.
Miha Štrukelj’s work is based on researching and deconstructing the mechanism of perception, which he analyses with the aid of traditional representational media – painting and drawing – but so as to include a thoughtful and critical examination of the act of perception as the threshold of the individual’s self-definition.
