Atelier Dado, National Museum of Montenegro, Cetinje

Stane Jagodič is one of the most distinctive and acclaimed visual artist from Slovenia who continuously works across different media for over fifty years. The Variations of Photography (1969-1980) exhibition is an overview of his heterogeneous photographic practices and their creative variations such as photo-montage, photo-collage and photo-performance. The exhibition will show a selection of the most significant works from his extensive oeuvre which characterise his artistic activities in the expanded field of art photography; one of the strongest aspects of his body of work. Between 1969 and 1980 the artist created a number of works exploring and questioning the possibilities of the photographic medium within the field of visual art. Despite his seemingly formalistic approach, Jagodič’s works from this period were conceived on firm conceptual ground, reflecting the spirit of his time and place.

Stane Jagodič (1943) has been active in different fields of visual art since the mid 1960s. Throughout his ever evolving, continuous body of work he has adopted several different means of artistic production using various media such as photography, painting, graphics, cartoons, performance, assemblages and object art (installations). Jagodič has been using photography and some of its creative derivatives such as photo-montage and photo-collage since 1967. Jagodič was co-founder and conceptual leader of Grupa Junij.
