DOCKLANDS, 300 x 650 cm, charcoal on wall, 2008 (site-specific, Hilger Contemporary)

Images on the paintings and drawings by the Slovenian painter Miha Štrukelj take us into the world of traumatic historic moments of civilisational madness and self-destruction, while delving into the stories about lyrical and withdrawn urban landscapes, random glimpses into the core of the life of metropolis, where the human figure exists only as an insecure witness to the manifested reality, yet still charmed by it. Štrukelj's working process is significantly based on transferring the mediated digital image into traditional painting and drawing mediums.
