Passage in Emona presents a conceptual space in Ljubljana (Emona in the Roman age), where visitors can experience the sense of ritual as an active process. Passage in Emona works to shape a collective space where new meanings are created and visitors' gestures and behaviour become part of the installation.
As mediators between different worlds, black ceramics, smoked brass and wood-fired porcelain create a mystical passage leading into another dimension, while charcoal masks designed by visitors reflect traces of shared memories.
Passage is a research project on material behaviour as an interpretation of the evolution of human nature and the human spirit; an investigation of transformation as a ritual towards a new phase, a territory to rediscover, a consciousness to reawaken. Each piece is taken out of its current context and relocated to a new space, where time and use assume new connotations, and in the process become totems of memory.
