Jernej Čuček Gerbec’s artistic practice is not concerned with medium or concept but with observations. Observations of the common, conventional and the wide-spread. The artist finds poetics in the simple acts of life, recurring conversations, pictures of random passersby and quotidian struggles. The end result is never a simple act of documentation but varies between installation, photography, video, text and sculpture. In his work he tries to highlight the things that may go unnoticed, while at the same time making the end message ambiguous and unclear as to retain its former allure.
