We are looking for collage technique works for an exhibition in the Škrlovec tower gallery. The application is open until May 8th. The jury for the selection of the works that will be exhibited on KAOS Festival will be Petra Čeh (the curator of the exhibition, SI), Sonja Švec Španjol (art historian, HR) and one selected collage artist that will also participate on artist in residency exhibition (we will announce the invited artists on the 15th of April).

▷ GUIDELINES FOR YOUR ARTWORK:
Your original artwork shouldn’t be older than 3 years. We invite all artists with affinity to collage technique to participate on the open call. We accept art works in collage technique made from all possible materials and from different branches of art. The theme of the second edition of the festival is ´Leftovers´. Your work has to refer to the theme in any imaginable way you choose. The only limit is size, art work shouldn’t be wider than 60 cm. You can only apply ONE art work.
Leftovers are not just pieces or fragments of split paper
Leftovers are also time which beats in front of us,
pieces of our figure in the broken mirror,
tiny things forgotten on dusty shelves,
memories of days past caught in a picture.
Leftovers are much more. From Leftovers we create kaleidoscope of memories, feelings and lust. The kaleidoscope of Leftovers becomes a selection of things that we wanted to leave behind.
Sometimes you can find some Leftovers on dusty shelves.
Some Leftovers we keep forever and art has the power to awaken them and put them back to life.
Art has the power to create new poetry from their stories.
The selection will be done in the week from 9. 5. to 14. 5. 2019.
The final results will be announced on May 15th 2019 on our website:

The selected artists will receive an email.

https://layer.si/kaos/si/poziv-in-povabilo-umetnikom/
▷ Smernice za vaše umetniško delo:
Vaše delo mora biti ustvarjeno v zadnjih treh letih. K sodelovanju vabimo vse umetnike z afiniteto do kolaža. Sprejemamo dela v tehniki kolaža iz raznolikih materialov in likovnih zvrsti, edina omejitev je velikost, umetniško delo je lahko široko največ 60 cm,
Tema druge izdaje našega festivala je “Ostanki”. Delo lahko izbrano temo obravnava na povsem poljuben način. Prijavite lahko največ ENO delo.
Ostanki niso le drobci ali koščki razcefranega papirja.
Ostanki so tudi čas, ki utripa pred nami,
so koščki zbitega zrcala naše podobe,
so drobnarije, pozabljene na zaprašenih policah,
so spomini preživetih dni ujeti v sliko.
Ostanki so tako veliko več – tisto več, iz česar ustvarimo kalejdoskop spominov, čustev, želja …
Kalejdoskop ostankov tako postane izbor tistega, čemur smo se morda želeli odreči, zavestno odstraniti.
Včasih ostanki vendarle nenamerno pristanejo na prašnih in prepišnih policah.
Nekaterih nikoli zares ne zavržemo in umetnost je tista, ki jih zmore obuditi, reinkarnirati in iz njihovih zgodb splesti povsem novo poezijo.
Žirija bo avtorje izbrala med 9. 5. in 14. 5. 2019.
Rezultati bodo objavljeni 15. 5. 2019 na spletni strani:
https://layer.si/kaos/si
Izbrani umetniki bodo obveščeni preko elektronske pošte.
