Wednesday, 30 Jan, 19:00–02:00 @ Kino Šiška
Friday, 1 Feb, 19:00–22:00 @ Ljubljana Castle
During MENT, VJ duo 5237 x SMECH will create an interactive audio-visual installation. A mapped projection on a construction built at the Osmo/za space will react to users’ sonic impulses through an audio interface. With each hit of the “trigger box”, a physical object placed in front of the installation, the visitors will change the image of the projection. The content of the projection and the construction will refer to the MENT visual design and will be premiered at the festival opening at Kino Šiška and repeated at the Ljubljana Castle.

5237 (Stella Ivšek) and SMECH (Anja Romih) are multimedia artists who focus on sound visualisation, video animation and editing, and are involved with various music events as VJs. Over the past few years, they’ve each collaborated with various visual, music and cultural collectives, associations and organizers (AKC Metelkova, KUD Channel Zero, Kino Šiška, Klub K4, Radio Študent, Pritličje, MENT Ljubljana, KAPA, Projekt Atol Institute, EMANAT, KUD MoTa, City of Women, Warrego Valles, Lifecutter, Šuljo). Their paths often crossed in the organisation and implementation of visual content for the CUF, Bojler and Tigerbalm collectives. They were first featured as a VJ duo in 2018 by the Fotopub festival (projections and music venue design), SONICA Festival (interactive audio-visual installation) and Grounded Festival (venue design, video mapping, projections).
