It will be on display until August 19, every weekday from 13.00 to 18.00.

The exhibition deals with two structures marking the boundaries of passages: a series of tree plantings in a buffer zone in the Australian capital Canberra and two of the four dragon sculptures on the concrete Dragon Bridge in Ljubljana. The exhibition deals with the codification of transition and the ways of negotiation about fixed structural systems. It includes video, photogrammetry, and sound, while the presentation itself is situated as a response to the architecture of the Vetrinjski dvor mansion.

Ren Gregorฤiฤ is an Australian-Slovenian artist, researcher, and curator working within the field of sculpture and spatial practice. Gregorฤiฤ often combines artistic, philosophic, scientific, and social research to produce creative outputs that prompt engagement with underlying industrial processes. Works often use materials and spatial configurations within urban landscapes to interrogate materiality, form, structure, and power.

His practice-led Ph.D. research focuses on an investigation of contemporary (post-1900) industrially manufactured concrete products (such as concrete blocks) and cast-concrete urban structures (such as urban concrete hydrological systems). The aim of the research is to highlight that, despite the common perception of concrete objects as pre-determined, natural, and unchangeable, they are products of human design so can be acted on, re-ordered, and re-structured.
