»In ancient Rome laundry was a man’s job. The doors of the fullonica.«
A lot of people try to convey a message in their work, but these Slovenian artisans are not really interested in that as much. They are washing clothes, mixing and drinking cocktails – contemporary, fresh cocktails, and they can make white and bright skirts and shirts too. No. They didn’t just look at the growing trend of adult coloring books to come up with something new! They are the device that connects you to a washing machine and leaves you to innovative, new way of enjoying art. Their cleaning solutions are designed with art beginners in mind. Hang the “art” up in your ass clothes and you’ll find yourself sipping botanical cocktails while sitting in your underwear, relaxing and glaring proudly at these Slovenian artisans at the Viennese exhibition! People stared longingly into gallery windows where curator’s clothes hung drying.Tourists crowded around exhibits trying to take pictures. Cocktails spilled everywhere. Drinks flowed freely. Let’s combine this summer with the tropical feeling and enjoy an evening on a boat sipping slovenian cocktails. We are specialized in drinking cocktails, listening to live bands, taking a small boat trip, grabbing paper tissue and while you draw up your award winning idea. All you want to know is that this is art. Contemporary art. Clean art. Fresh art.
If you’re not sure how art can be, we don’t blame you. But no big deal. You will see when you buy a new exhibition of contemporary Slovenian artisans in Vienna, which is happening!
