September 7th – 23rd

U10 Art Space is an independent artist-run space dedicated to supporting contemporary art founded in 2012 in Belgrade.

It was founded with the purpose to be a platform where young local artists would be shown. By collaborating with similar spaces and initiatives, U10 Art Space actively works on creating a culture of artistic education, debate and exchange between artists, curators, art theoreticians, writers and the wider public.

The main focus of the program is to create solo and group shows presenting mainly young artists from Serbia. A few slots per year are dedicated to international projects whose concept is aimed at creating active exchange and collaborating with local artists; followed by presenting mid-career artists. An integral part of the program includes events such as: exhibition guidings by artists and curators, performances, sound and music performances, discussions and panels as well as parallel events outside of the space itself and abroad.

Neur-o-matic: analogue media-art installation

Neur-o-matic is a series of twelve identical situations depicting the average generic working environment of the cognitive precariate whose labour is embedded within the absurd static environment of communication capitalism. Sub-conscious gestures dictated by the information technology trigger ideological operations inside the time-space medium whose time is increasingly shorter and space increasingly dispresed.

The artists have stripped the phantasm of information and knowledge cornucopia to its naked essence, its absurdity, whose insatiable desire is directed towards destruction. They have done this in close collaboration with engineers Brane Ždralo, Simon Bergoč and Boris Košak, sculptress Neža Jurman and sound artist Staš Vrenko. The installation’s mechanism is set up in such a way that the installation will partially auto-destruct during the exhibiting period and portray the fragmented and destructive effects of excessive production. All twelve situations are connected to a network, which triggers the banging of hammers on clones. The main operating centre is similar to a web environment embedding each of twelve workstations. The visitor is like an operator who is unable to control his or her actions since every push of a key is destructive. The only means of resistance and transformation of inert excessive production and action is a radical departure from the system and complete inaction.

Lenka Đorojević is an artist, curator and writer. Her interactive works, audio-visual performances, theatre sets and collaborative projects research the relation between humans and technology through the sociopolitical, philosophical and cultural dimensions of mediated realities of contemporaneity. Lenka Đorojević has shown her work in Slovenia and internationally.

Matej Stupica is an artist, working in different areas: visual art, illustration, set design. His artistic practice links different media and combines them with performative or sound elements. With irony he approaches social and political themes - or encloses the paradoxes in the media itself - questioning the enlightenment of modern societies. He has shown his work in Slovenia and abroad, received two awards for newspaper illustration (Slovenian Biennial of Illustration, Ljubljana) and two student art awards (Academy of Fine Arts, Ljubljana).

Lenka Đorojević and Matej Stupica’s work is a crossover between visual and media art, theory, practice and contemporary philosophy concepts. Deriving from visual arts their artistic practice draw from scientific and artistic research on audiovisual perception to create installation ambiences, set designs and experiential environments and situations.
