Internationally renowned for her poetics and her research about the movement defined by James E. Young the ‘Counter-Monument’, Manca Bajec shows how contemporary art may act as an intruder, clarifying elements within the grey areas of history writing.
Witness Corner Marked focuses on the transmission and perceptions of multi-vocal war stories (immaterial monuments of a collective past), feeding in this way a pluri-vocal vision of history, which is still a necessity today. In a vacant space animated by floating voices, querying the memory of the past, sounds and objects become carriers of the experiences people endured in war. The visitor will share universal symbols and emotions, being a witness of individual moments that have never been “monumentalised”.
