DUSA JESIH · (NO) DIALOGUE

Dusa Jesih was born on 1977 in Ljubljana, Slovenia, where she currently lives and works. (No) Dialogue is Dusa Jesih's first solo exhibition in Spain. Through basic elements of composition she reaches for the balance between space and time, the ecstatic and dinamic, the limited and limitless. This particular search is a key element of all of her works, as she studies the combination of geometric and morphologie, as well as the various chromatic factors. Jesih divides the surface into a lineal contruction, aiming towards a non-simmetrical segment. This process turns her work into massive geometric imaginery  with an interactive aspect as a conversation between the artist and the audience. The geometic figures simbolize the eternity and, therefore, the imaginative and visual space opens-up and expands.

The goal of my art is to provide a critical overview of our social, cultural and political spheres in a slightly unconventional (trendy) manner. I am more interested in self-reflection on the phenomenon of alienation I am witnessing as it goes (contradictorily) hand in hand with globalisation rather than focused on any political engagement.
