“Medium Loci” site-specific art project combines the words medium and genius loci to point out the fact that place or region itself, through its genuine qualities, can represent a visual medium. We have decided to deny the general concept of transporting the same artworks around several art venues and showing them over and over. Instead, we prepare the entire show again for the selected location. After spending several days in each city, artists begin to dig in local history, current political and cultural situation. Reinterpreting local archives, stereotypes and lore, they provide local people with new point of view, both socially and aesthetically. Final result consists of photographs, video installations and figurative reactions to the gallery space.
