Stane Jagodič

Stane Jagodič (born in 1943) has been active in various fields, media and contexts of visual art since the mid 1960s. After graduating from the Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana in 1970, he soon became one of the most active and important artists with his own recognizable expression in Yugoslavia. In his always developing and continuous body of work he has adopted several different concepts of artistic production using various artistic media such as photography, painting, graphics, cartoons, performance, assemblages and object art (installations). Since 1967 Stane Jagodič is using photography and some of its creative derivates like photomontage and photo collage that are assumed as the most significant in his artistic production. His specific production denoted a huge leap forward within the specific practices of art photography in local and regional cultural milieu as an opposition to the mainstream. Stane Jagodič was co-founder and conceptual leader of Grupa Junij, active between 1970 and 1985, broad artistic platform that included number of prominent local and international artists. As an independent artist Stane Jagodič participated on more than 50 solo and more than 200 group exhibitions worldwide.
