About the Event
You are cordially invited to attend the opening of the Made in China: Successes And Failures exhibition. The Slovene Made in China project will showcase its work from the past couple of years and put on a performative event: Made in China: What You Buy is What You Get.
The opening will be accompanied by the Made in China: What You Buy is What You Get performance at the Photon Gallery. The performative event will appropriate the promotional and sales strategies cherished by consumerism, presenting the sale as a poetic act, a sublime experience involving the exchange of goods and services for currency and built around the seller-author-buyer relationship.
The Made in China project, like the exhibited project at the Photon Gallery and the accompanying performative event, probe the communicative and discourse potential of art, introducing novel and effective production methods and strategies for passing on art to the public within the specific context of our time.
