Emobot / Robot Museum

Igor Štromajer: Emobot, 2011
(Wax 69, Set.3, E-Basic ZX-S 2000+, 8-bit Mono Q Sil)

Maribor Art Gallery: Robot Museum; group exhibition
29 September – 6 November 2011

Štromajer has placed Emobot, an emotional robot, in the gallery. Emobot is not a work of art nor does it produce art. Its only artistic value is absence (of production) of art. Emobot produces art by not producing it, by active omission of production. It is (and it isn’t) an artistic action, performed by not being performed. In other words – it is created by not being created. Emobot is an art work actively absent from the exhibition: the most radical artistic action is the one performed by not performing it. Emobot functions by not functioning, by omitting its functioning. And when it is active, we are not aware how it functions, and actually we don’t want to know. Emobot is omissive art: “Philosophers have so far only changed the world, this is about interpreting the world!”
The work was created in the context of exploring omissive art, the status of art in contemporary society as well as of the value and impact of an artistic action.

Concept of the exhibition: Jože Slaček, Curator: Meta Kordiš

Je Igor Štromajer vizualni umetnik ali strateški komunikolog?

Večer (V Soboto), 24. oktober 2009

Simona Vidmar:
Je Igor Štromajer vizualni umetnik ali strateški komunikolog?

Igor Štromajer, diplomant AGRFT, sebe definira kot intimnega mobilnega komunikatorja, ki se posveča raziskovanju čutnih emocionalnih stanj in travmatičnih low-tech gverilskih strategij. Mariborčan, ki živi pretežno v Ljubljani (trenutno sicer situiran v Hamburgu), je svoja medmrežna dela, interaktivne instalacije in gverilske intervencije predstavil na več kot 100 razstavah v 50 državah. Njegovi projekti se nahajajo v stalnih zbirkah prestižnih muzejev, med drugim v Le Centre national Georges Pompidou, Pariz; Mousee national d’art moderne, Pariz; Museo Nacional Reina Sofia, Madrid; Hamburger Kunsthalle, Hamburg; Computerfinearts Gallery, New York; Moderni galeriji Ljubljana ter Umetnostni galeriji Maribor.

Na skupinski razstavi Poletje, predlogi za stalno zbirko (na ogled še do konca oktobra v UGM) se Igor Štromajer predstavlja z delom Mami, naredi mi to umetnost spet politično!, ki združuje preprost video nazorni sistem s sloganom na steni. Delo je parafraza njegove multimedijske instalacije infoMAMA iz leta 2004, predstavljene v UGM kmalu za tem, ko je umetnik prejel Glazerjevo listino, osrednjo nagrado mesta Maribor za dosežke na področju umetnosti. Medtem ko intermedijski projekt infoMAMA z uporabo informacijske tehnologije raziskuje intimno emocionalno sestavo fenomena matere ter strasten, travmatičen in neobvladljiv odnos med materjo ter potomci, je nov projekt v UGM navezan na mati samo še z retoričnim klicem na pomoč. Vendar rahlo komičen napis na steni sedaj postane osrednji del intervencije. Nadzorne kamere namreč ne beležijo ničesar smiselnega in ne shranjujejo posnetih premikov obiskovalcev po galeriji. Neizkoriščena namembnost aparatov je samo dodatna prispodoba za stanje duha sodobne umetnosti, kot jo opiše umetnik. Kar je skupno obema projektoma, je dejstvo, da so povezave (mati-potomci, umetnik-gledalci) nemogoče, vendar vedno strateške. Odgovorov na zastavljeno vprašanje je več!

Vabimo vas na zadnje vodstvo pred zaključkom razstave Poletje v nedeljo, 25. oktobra 2009 ob 11.00. Po razstavi bo vodil avtor projekta, umetniški kritik, publicist in profesor umetnostne zgodovine dr. Tomaž Brejc.
