Avtorji ujeti v izginevajočo socialno strukturo degradiranega delavskega mesta, skozi artikulirano, pa vendar poetično formo fotografije spregovorijo o sebi, o svoji intimi, o odnosu do sveta, o strahovih in frustracijah o upanju in pričakovanju, o življenju. Cona Trbovlje se ukvarja z artefakti in usedlinami časa, ki je nepreklicno mimo. Obenem nakazuje obete prihodnosti. Različne avtorske afinitete tvorijo kompleksno podobo partikularne arhitekturne in socialne strukture vase zaprte in včasih samozadostne skupnosti.

Družbeno stvarnost, ki se nas vseh tiče, označujeta dve temeljni razmerji: materialno in ideološko. Na eni strani torej produkcijski odnosi v poznem kapitalizmu kot družbena baza, na drugi strani pa njihova nadgradnja, sestavljena iz družbenih idej in institucij, ki odražajo te iste produkcijske odnose.

Sodobna fotografija, znotraj postavitve Cona Trbovlje vsekakor odraža ta dva bistvena vidika postindustrijske družbe. To sta materialno delo, ki razvija tehnike in tehnologije na osnovi produkcijskih meril, doseženih v neki družbi, in umetnost kot modifikacija družbene zavesti ter kot interpret in reproducent socialne stvarnosti (odnosi med ljudmi in med ljudmi ter naravo). Živimo v družbi podob, ki nas preplavljajo, v katerih nam grozi utopitev. Postajamo površni, zaradi gozda ne vidimo več dreves. Odvračamo pogled od partikularnosti, stremimo k big picture. Stara maksima podobnosti se je spremenila. Svet sodimo po podobnosti, ki jo ima s svojimi podobami, in ne obratno. Sodobni fotograf  se neodvisno postavi proti družbi  in izkorišča brezmejno široko polje svobode, ki tudi na ideološki ravni ni več vprašljiva. V svojem raziskovanju se lahko vertikalno in horizontalno giblje po zgodovini slogov, jih reinterpretira in citira, ne da bi se z njimi identificiral. Edine omejitve prostora, tega brezmejnega vesolja, so v njegovi glavi.

Andrej Uduč, 'Cona 2GNm2', 2010

 

From November 2 until November 20, 2010
Delavski dom Trbovlje
V.A.T Group: Špela Pavli, Maša Jazbec, Lili Bedekovič, Andrej Uduč, Andrej Grilj, Primož Zakrajšek, Katja Sovre, Marjan Korenjak, Robert Ahlin, Matic Kolar, Tanja Hanžič, David Čavar.

Artists, entangled within the social structure of degraded worker’s town, use articulated and at the same time poetic form of photography to speak up about themselves, their intimacy, relationship to the world, about the fears and hopes and expectations, about life. Zone Trbovlje deals with artifacts and the sediments of time which is irrevocably coming to an end. At the same time it shows the possible outlooks of the future. Different affinities of the artists together form a complex image of particular architectural and social structure of closed and sometimes self-sustaining community.

Social reality that determines us all, is itself determined by two basic relationships: material and ideological. Material relationships are determined by production relations in late capitalism (in the form of social basis) and ideological relationships as the upgrade of the former. They form as social ideas and institutions and are a reflection of these relationships. Contemporary photography of Trbovlje Zone reflects these two basic views on the post-industrial society. Material work which develops techniques and technologies is based on the production means which society reached on one side and the art as modification of social consciousness, interpreter and reproductor of social reality (relationships between people, between people and nature) on the other side. We live in a society of images which overwhelm and try to drown us. We become superficial; cannot see the forest for the trees. We move away from particularities toward the »big picture«. The old maxim of similarity is changed: we now judge the world against the images and not vice versa. The contemporary photographer poses himself in opposition to the society and uses the vast field of freedom now available even at the level of ideology. In his study he can move freely both vertically and horizontally between different traditions of styles, which he reinterprets and quotes without identifying with them. The only limitations of space – the unlimited universe – are in his head. (Zoran Poznič)
