OPENING: Monday, March 27th 2023. at 7.30pm
ABOUT THE WORK:
Ths exhibition, ‘human -not- natural disorders’, cultivated collectively by the Un-war Space Lab, is an entangled research that follows processes surrounding rivers and their toxic habitats: Drava-Maribor (2022, production KID KIBLA), Neretva-Mostar (2017- ongoing, Un-War Space Lab) and Seine-Paris (2018, Servet Cihangiroglu). The exhibition will also contain samples, forms and experiences made during the Curatorial school ‘Accidental or non-curatorial practices after the human destruction of the Earth and interspecies life’, held in Split and the Neretva River Delta between 23-27 March 2023.
Accidental and non-curatorial practices create and destroy at the same time, focusing on the site-specific materials, reality and fiction, movements and emotions of all participants while cultivating an experimental space of inclusion and transformation of violence of any kind.
Un-war Space Lab is a transmedia research-based practice on material transformations of rivers, land, architecture, and the interspecies society during and after the war or other destructive processes; it is led by Armina Pilav – feminist, architect, and researcher in ecologies of war destruction. It functions as a fluid collective of researchers and practitioners across the disciplines of landscape architecture, film, archaeology, visual arts, and environmental humanities, to mention a few.

Ana Dana Beroš (Zagreb), Armina Pilav (Brač), Damir Ugljen (Mostar), Karla Crnčević (San Sebastian), Servet Cihangiroğlu (Paris), Jamie Allen (Berlin), Louise Emily Carver (Berlin), Ivica Mitrović (Split), Joaquin Mora, (Vilnius, Santiago de Chile), Rebeka Bratož Gornik (Ljubljana), Tina Divić (Krvavica).
