KALTBLUT got to know more about this in between art format:
KALTBLUT: What is black palm?
Sonja Cvitkovic: Black Palm is a curatorial platform and will showcase a rotating selection of art objects, art editions, music and services with a commitment to innovative art across disciplines. It is a generous vision of art and economy with an analytical view on everyday objects.
KALTBLUT: Why did you chose this format online gallery shop?
Sonja Cvitkovic: Black Palm examine the intersection of aesthetic, artistic, social and economic dynamics. The question about a geographical or physical space never really came up. I choose the digital platform because it became our most significant thing in our lives.
There will be physical exhibition like now at ACUD but not a permanent Black Palm Space.
The contrast between internet´s immaterial economy and everyday objects exploration in art is important to Black Palm. I invite the artists to create an art edition based on an object they use everyday which is real existing and I put it in an immaterial context of internet economy.
KALTBLUT: What a picture says more than a word?
Sonja Cvitkovic: I don’t have any in mind but I appreciate Skype icons and Facebook gif´s.
KALTBLUT: What will we find in your exhibition/Showroom in ACUD?
Sonja Cvikovic: I will show at ACUD project space all the art editions and art objects the artists produced for Black Palm.
KALTBLUT: How do you construct the picture or experience of Black Palm?
Sonja Cvitkovic: Black Palm explores different fields. It is an everyday experience, an invitation to explore the digital power and social dynamics between individual and group. But beside all of this I´m mostly interested in the relationship between people and objects.
KALTBLUT: Do you produce art yourself?
Sonja Cvitkovic: Yes, but recently less because I was so busy with Black Palm.
KALTBLUT: Name 3 things that you collect?
Sonja Cvitkovic: 1) Passwords 2) Folders 3)I don’t know yet.
Save the date for the Closing party next of January 24th with Kritzkom and Borusiade dj set.
