HALA MERINA 2013

Art Symposium in the hall of industrial complex Merina in Trencin was focused to young artists from Slovakia and Czech Republic. Following the example of many world cities, artists have brought their art to the premises of the factory ceased operations and gave it a new dimension of presentation gallery character. Merina was one of the major factories for the production of textiles in the early 20th century in Europe. Currently-May 2013, the indoor spaces were occupied by artists who work here on multi-genre nature (painting, sculpture, video, animation, site-specific installation, dj-ing, vj-ing, concerts, fashion design) with the final open to the public. Aim of the one week symposium is to establish in these areas regular event where the young artists could present their art and offer it to the public, which could change the treatment of Industrial architecture, of its maintenance and presentation potential. behance.net/ZovinecBros

 This 2013 year was zero

 This 2013 year was zero grade of symposium of site specific art in one of the most important factories of the textile industry in Europe in the early twentieth century, its complexity of production. Today dilapidated building that deserves to be transformed into a complex with exhibition spaces which could take place and meeting international symposium of contemporary art in Europe. This annual symposium, we start to reset the artistic direction of this complex character and set his future unclear. https://www.facebook.com/HalaMerina?fref=ts

Hi Thanks. The location looks great, but it gives me also the impression of "centrification". It means artists work for free or heavily underpaid to increase the value of a building or vaste area. We also did this in the past. Unfortunately in most cases, it´s a temporary thing. The energy to adapt the buildung and to build up art events gets lost after a time and a complete restart somewhere else is required.
