Co_Sonic 1884 km² Exhibition by Robertina Šebjanič

About this event

Co_Sonic 1884 km² is a visual-poetic reflection and an AI powered soundscape. It tells the story of the (co)existence of river environments and their inhabitants. Presented at Watermans from Friday 14 July until Sunday 15 October 2023 as part of its new media art programme. About the Exhibition The project brings us closer to the life of river flora and fauna, while drawing attention to the problematic nature of human control over the aquatic environment. By moving away from an anthropocentric view of the world, the artist reveals a new perspective on the Ljubljanica River and its ecosystem. Throughout history, the Ljubljanica has wormed its way below and above the surface. Unaware that they are the same river, people have given different names to each of the above-ground parts of the river. Co_Sonic 1884 km² shows its water body through the prism of its integral whole. Co_Sonic 1884 km² is a document of the current times in which rivers are becoming powerless due to human intervention. It calls on us to build empathy for ‘non-human’ entities and to adopt strategies for ecological development for a time when our generation will be long gone.
