Photography each 110cm/80cm
Stills are taken from the footage of the National Radio and Television Slovenia. The footage was showing the Slovenian landscape filmed with a thermographic police camera, on the mission to control the borders.
The images are named after the Slovenian impressionist works (Spring, The Sun in Autumn, Trees...).
With its inscription in the national canon, landscape painting, which predominated as a theme among Slovenian impressionists, obtained the aura of national painting. The depicted “Slovenian” landscape became “a mental image of the native landscape”, and precisely such is the desire of today's gaze and view that flattens the image in order to re-stage Spring.
