Intermedia exhibition VRTN!CA*
11 June 2021–15 January 2022
Arboretum Volčji Potok

On Friday, 11 June 2021, we have opened the intermedia exhibition VRTN!CA in Arboretum Volčji Potok, a pilot project of the RUK network, implemented by KIBLA2LAB. The exhibition was on view until 15 January 2022.


In the premises of the Arboretum, which houses one of the most representative rosaries in the world, we place roses in a different way: We relocate them from their natural environment to literary, sound and visual illustration and intermedia installation. In doing so, we want to show part of their existence and beauty and connection with humans. Thus, we offer a new perspective with an upgraded experience of extended reality that simultaneously evokes a special experience in the real environment of the botanical park and in the metaphysical world of art. In a spatial audiovisual installation, visitors can experience four stories of selected roses: Damask, as well as the varieties Trubar, Peace and Prešeren.

The pilot project was created in cooperation with Arboretum Volčji Potok, Pattern City Velenje, Kristijan Korat, ROSA Production and Delavski dom Trbovlje.
