Intima | Igor Štromajer

Web-Retro Seoul


12 March – 9 June 2019

— group exhibition focuses on the World Wide Web, which has been fundamentally reconditioning communication, image production, consumption and artistic practice for the last 30 years, and revises the new arts that have been tried through the net historically. It’s purpose is to explore the contemporary, cultural, and technological context of internet art and to share information about the flow with a longer breath. Works of artists, ranging from past attempts at internet art to recent art works based on network and online, are classified by period to provide a foundation for deeper research.

< 0.HTML >은 웹을 기반으로 한 첫 번째 작품으로 컴퓨터 게임 형식을 통해 인터넷의 유명한 역사적 알레고리들을 유희적으로 가지고 놀 수 있게 되어있다. 사용자가 웹 페이지에 접속하는 순간 이미 게임은 시작된다. 게임에는 ‘통신 영역’, ‘도발적 지능 일반’, ‘몸 관찰제’, ‘조건의 아카이브’의 4개의 파트로 구성되어 있으며 제한된 접근과 암호, 해답을 통해 다음 단계로 나아가도록 구성되어있다. 이 작품은 아날로그 현실을 새로운 인터페이스에 적용해 재탄생시켰다.

Networks of care

In her new book, in the chapter ‘Networks of care’, Annet Dekker also briefly mentions the project of mine which you may or may not be aware of.

Collecting and Conserving Net Art: Moving beyond Conventional Methods
by Annet Dekker, Routledge, 2018



Chapter: Networks of care

“[…] oµ4× a ‘performative action’ by Igor Štromajer who over a period of four years (from 2016 to 2020) asks a group of people to keep safe several encrypted files, which he randomly selected from his earlier project Expunction (2011) in which he deleted many of his net artworks from his server. Looking for other modes of distributing, sharing and experiencing the potential art which is stuck and compressed in those removed files, Štromajer is organising his own ‘network of care’.45 These works afford new modes of active engagement and creative use, and demonstrate a more recent way of dealing with circulation, in which the distributive effects are intentional if not foreseeable.

Join The Dots

Join The Dots / Unire le distanze
group exhibition / Imago Mundi

Salone degli Incanti, Trieste, Italy
29 May – 2 September 2018

Join the Dots is an exhibition of 40 collections: it is an invitation to join the dots by following the red thread that unites the 40 collections on show. Trieste, which has always been a centre for the exchange of ideas and trade, is the starting point for an itinerary of land and sea, which takes us from the shores of the North Sea to legendary Baghdad, from sunny Morocco to the Danubian steppes, from Baltic beaches to the Negev desert. All thanks to the kaleidoscope of images proffered by the works of over 6,300 artists. In addition, Join the Dots is a series of meetings and events that will animate the summer in Trieste, with a calendar of activities that is currently being defined.
