Martin Bricelj Baraga
Martin Bricelj Baraga is an artist and curator.
His interactive works, audiovisual performances and collaborative work research the relation between man and machine, social aspects of contemporary popular culture, future monumentalism and political dimensions of mediated realities of today.
His works are usually large-scale installations in public spaces and unusual architectural contexts. He often uses light and sound as means for creating an atmosphere that challenges our perceptions. His works are questioning symbols and myths as a series of time and space-based experiments. Deriving from visual arts he often employs sound as basic component in his work and collaborates with acclaimed sound artists such as Olaf Bender, Plaid, Vector Lovers, etc.
He is the director of MoTA - Museum of Transitory Art and the founder of SONICA Festival in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
