The works presented in the exhibition Mie Lahkoo Pomagate? (can you help me?) investigate different attitudes toward language and problematize how its expressivity is structured when placed in a new environment.

The created pieces have an open structure and can be understood as a sort of “hacking”, through which another sphere of what used to be called net art is opened. This other zone is no longer caught in the virtual world, it does not examine its imprints on reality, but cuts through the space of in-betweenness, the real / the virtual, past / present. It calls for a responsible, watchful, and careful entering, reading, acting, reacting, even when we are becoming a witness of a past event, when we are interpreting offered materials, combining, connecting, and understanding them.

Recordings, drawings, a video and a poster of Encounter, edited recordings of Kaj misiliš s tem? What do you mean?, an art book from estranger to e-stranger, a skirt made by Irena Pivka, a deka, a poster from Huong Ngo, a song by Tožibabe, a video of my parents, relax.exe (projection), a chair, a table, a text by Jasmina Založnik, a soundpiece by Brane Zorman, a plant, another plant, another chair, plaster board, text on code and emotions (poster), Iloveyou.exe (copies). What language does it speak?

The exhibition was developed in collaboration with Maja Delak, Mojca Krisch, Huong Ngo, Irena Pivka, Brane Zorman. Thanks to: Milena Gros, Chantal van Mourik, Brida, Martina Ruhsam, Sunčan Stone, Igor Štromajer, Jana Wilcoxen, Jerneja Žganec Gros and Aleš Mihelič – Alpineon razvoj in raziskave, d.o.o
