ASEF Junior Fellow π—₯𝗲𝗻 π—šπ—Ώπ—²π—΄π—Όπ—Ώπ—°ΜŒπ—Άπ—°ΜŒ from Australia recently completed his research visit to Slovenia where he developed and produced a new body of research-led artworks examining cultural monuments, concrete, and urban water systems in Ljubljana:

β€œWhen I arrived in Slovenia in May 2022, I quickly became interested in JoΕΎe Plečnik’s sluice gate and the relationship it has with the Ljubljanica as it flows down to FuΕΎine most. During my ASEF fellowship I focused on making a body of artwork about that system. I was also fortunate to have a solo exhibition at Vetrinjski exhibition space in Maribor titled > π™π™žπ™­π™šπ™™π™„π™£π™‹π™‘π™–π™˜π™šπ™Šπ™›π™π™π™šπ™Žπ™ͺ𝙣< (π™‹π™€π™¨π™©π™–π™«π™‘π™Ÿπ™šπ™£π™€π™£π™–-π™’π™šπ™¨π™©π™€π™¨π™€π™£π™˜π™–) that presented some thoughts in progress about the role of sculptural symbolism in urban places. Between my research work I was able to visit many incredible places within Slovenia including the Ε kocjan jame and Ptuj and enjoyed the opportunity to visit relatives in Velenje. The fellowship was an enriching experience, both personally and professionally.”
