Eyedentify Yourself
Thematic Video program curated by TevÏ Logar


Eyedentify Yourself has been produced in frame of VIDEOSPOTTING, the
SCCA-Ljubljana selected programs of video works by artists from
Slovenia that has been continuing a systematic research of video
production started with Videodokument.

Eydentify Yourself presents the selected video production of last
three years. It is focused on a young generation of Slovenian artists
and their personal attitude towards the theme of identity. In everyday
life we are confronted with different identities. Moreover, our
identity is submitted to unceasing changes, modifications,
transformations, our personal identity deals with questions about
ourselves, our problems, persistence question, identity through time.
But the spectrum of the word identity is much wider and relates to
more than just a personal identity. There are social, political,
philosophical, artistic identities. Consequently, there exist a lot of
different views on identity which is also perceived through the
thematic video program Eydentify Yourself. Presented artists are: Nika
Autor, Nata"a Berk, Vesna Bukovec, Lada Cerar, TomaÏ Furlan, Robertina
·ebjaniã, TomaÏ TomaÏin and Metka Zupaniã.
