Miha Strukelj, Sketch for a Pavilion

Miha Strukelj is a multi-disciplinary artist exploring the complexity and ambiguity of the urban context through painting and drawing. For a few years now his artworks have become three-dimensional: he combines different components in a spatial composition where the audience becomes an active element. In Strasbourg, Miha Štrukelj had carte blanche for creating an in situ installation in the glass pavilion of Lieu d’Europe.

The exhibition took place in the Pavilion of the Lieu d’Europe – 8 rue Boecklin 67000 Strasbourg

Opening hours: from Tuesday to Sunday – 10 am to 6 pm

Neja Tomšič, Tea for Five

Neja Tomšič, through her performance, questionned how tea has changed life in the cities with the first appearance of commercial structures in the middle of the 18th century to nowadays. Our comfort and quality of life depends heavily on maritime shipping, which we know very little about.

During this performance, the participants were invited to live an escape-from-time experience by being introduced to a tea ceremony and immersed in its history.

Performances times (in English): Friday 26/01 – 2 pm. and 4 pm (full)  – Saturday 27/01 – 2 pm. and 4 pm (full)

Limited spaces – prior registration required at Apollonia by e-mail at apollonia{at}apollonia-art-exchanges.com or by phone at +33 (0)9 53 40 37 34.
