Publication Studio and Appendix Project Space invite you to join us for
the release of Passengers from the Relative to the Absolute, by Sanela
Distilling the essential powers claimed by various modes of creation —painting's living evidence of touch, or the power of the word to remake the past—Jahić creates for herself situations of enhanced mechanical advantage. At one time, the hand held the charred stick, and the sti...ck touched the world. Here, embodied in elaborate engineering, and suspended at a theoretical distance by inanimate causal series, the basic interaction is elongated and radically transformed.
This publication encompasses a broad survey of Jahić's work with machines, mirrors, and masks and contains essays by Urška Jurman, Ida Hiršenfelder and Alen Ožbolt.
The release of this book coincides with an exhibition of Jahić's work at Appendix Project Space opening Thursday August 25.
Sanela Jahić, (b. 1980, Kranj) studied at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana, Slovenia where she received a BA in Painting. She went on to receive an MFA in Public Art and New Artistic Strategies at the Bauhaus University in Weimar, Germany. Her work has been exhibited in Slovenia, Russia, Germany and Japan. This is her first American show.
