ANTIGOON DUM Project Space, Ljubljana / 28 June – 3 July Curated by Jasper van Es
The Dutch urban platform EMOVES and the Ljubljana Street Art Festival present a solo show by the post-graffiti artist Antigoon in DUM Project Space.
Antigoon (Netherlands, 1983) makes machines that apply patterns with markers, spray cans and other materials.The result is inhumanly perfect and geometric.Yet you see the signs of materials that are actually made for humans: dripping paint, pressed crayons and pencilmarks. There is room for imperfection and so the work retains the raw characteristics of graffiti. During the Street Art Festival Antigoon will show different works from his series ‘Mechanical Buffing’ and ‘Ligature’. All works are for sale during opening times.
DUM Project Space Kolodvorska 6, 1000 Ljubljana Opening on Tuesday June 28th 19:00-22:00 Opening times Wednesday – Sunday 16:00-20:00
Antigoon is part of UCMasters in which talented artists are helped in their develop- ment with a grant and guidance.This guidance is coordinated by Jasper van Es. UCMasters is a project by EMOVES and supported by Cultuur Eindhoven, Provincie Noord Brabant and the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (OCW).
During the STRP festival 2022 i curated and produced the project Mine is smaller than yours by the Slovenian artist that uses the alias Name:
In this project Name: collaborates with other artists and graffiti writers in the creation of the world’s smallest graffiti, using nanotechnology. In different locations in Eindhoven, related to the Philips history, we placed 10 new nano graffitis. During the STRP festival visitors could see the videos of the nano graffitis in Eindhoven and other places around the world. There is a map so visitors can find the real nano graffitis in public space. Invisible for the naked eye you can only see them when scanning the small QR next to the nanograffiti.
While Pablo was here for the talk and release of the new print we also managed to paint a nice mural in collaboration with the municipality of Eindhoven.
