Zaupaj mi, jaz tebi tudi ali kako politiki izigravajo ljudstvo
Razstava hrvaškega umetnika Mihaela Giba

Ljubljana – MMC RTV SLO/STA
Kako so videti pogodba o pristopu Hrvaške v EU, pogodba o medsebojnih odnosih delničarjev in arbitražni sporazum med Slovenijo in Hrvaško, prenesene v umetniški jezik? V Centru in galeriji P74 pravne dokumente vizualizira hrvaški umetnik Mihael Giba.

Mladi hrvaški umetnik predstavlja projekt Trust Me I Trust You, v katerem se ukvarja s temo političnega izigravanja ljudstva. V razstavo je vključena istoimenska serija petih knjig, v katerih umetnik vizualizira omenjene dokumente hrvaške države.

S takšno vizualizacijo intermedijski umetnik sebe pokaže kot običajnega meščana, ki zaradi množice ekonomskih in pravnih izrazov ter političnih trikov, te pogodbe bere pomanjkljivo. S tem učinkovito prehaja od konkretnega k abstraktnemu, da se nato znova vrne h konkretnemu. Del razstave je tudi projekcija, ki podatke iz zasedanja parlamenta kategorizira v skupine, kot so šport, kultura, ekonomija, in jih predstavi kot podobe digitalne pokrajine. Razstava Trust Me I Trust You bo v Centru in galeriji P74 na ogled do 28. marca.

Instalacije, ki jih ženejo umetnikovi programi
Leta 1985 v Varaždinu rojeni Mihael Giba je doštudiral slikarstvo na Akademiji za umetnost Univerze v Splitu. Svoja dela je predstavljal na samostojnih in skupinskih razstavah na Hrvaškem, to pa je njegova prva samostojna predstavitev v Sloveniji. Leta 2010 je predstavljal z Daliborjem Martinisom potujoči projekt Global Picture. Umetnik, ki v svojih projektih kartografira tako individualne kot svetovne družbene fenomene, za lastna dela razvija tudi računalniške programe, ki služijo kot osnova za delovanje instalacij.

Vjerujte mi vjerujem vam

This work is about trust that we all as citizens have given to politicians. It consists of two books placed on the stands. The first book is actually an Accession Treaty: Treaty concerning the accession of the Republic of Croatia to European Union, and the second book is the Agreement on mutual relations between the shareholders of INA – so-called The contract on sale of INA. Common to these documents is that the government was refusing to publish these documents.
In this Accession Treaty I am color coding the word “Croatia” in red-white-blue and the words “European Union” in blue and yellow, just in positions where they are located in the original treaty, and all other text is deleted. In the INA contract I am statistically showing how many times characters are repeating in one row. Visualizing the information from the original documents I am showing how I read these documents from the stand of view as an ordinary citizen with a minimal knowledge of legal chicanery, various legal and economic terms.
Do ordinary citizens that politicians represent must have such knowledge and control their every move, or just to trust politicians? In surveys that Croatian internet portals took among their readers after numerous scandals and in an election year the results are lost trust in politicians. When we give our trust to the people that must represent us in matters that concern all of us as citizens of this country do we need knowledge to read legal documents, or this kind of knowledge is unnecessary?
Trust me I trust you.
