Conversation (working title) is a project that incorporates the building of a public structure and devising a public program, and merging interest in the adaptation of architectural/relational/narrative and discursive concepts and their potential for context-based translation. The design of the work is envisioned as a functioning performance stage and cantina. In Zalog we see an opportunity to set up a discourse of performance and democracy and a dialogue with the community on the meaning of cultural and social activism and urban culture.

Conversation is a collaboration by artists Hrsitina Ivanoska and Yane Calovski (living and working in Skopje) developed for Project Culburb (cultural-acupuncture –treatemnet-for suburbs) and set in public space of Zalog (Ljubljana). Conversation is developed on invitation by Bostijan Bugaric and KUD C3 (Ljublajna) and with the creative/critical participation of designer, facilitator and reseracher Anette Lundebuy (London). With conversation the artists would like to engage the citizens of Zalong in a dialogue on histroy and expectations, personal and collective, and do so via a colective performance titled Stone Soup (based an old folk story in which hungry strangers persuade local people of a town to give them food) in which members of the community volonteer in the making of a collective soup and while doing so engage in dialogue with the artists on the meaning of cultural and social activism and urban culture. The Stone Soup event will be staged in the evening of Monday, the 25th of March. The artists as well as the collaborators will be in Zalog from until March 30th and will be interested to meet with anyone who would like to host them for a conversation.

“Some travelers come to a village, carrying nothing more than an empty cooking pot. Upon their arrival, the villagers are unwilling to share any of their food stores with the hungry travelers. Then the travelers go to a stream and fill the pot with water, drop a large stone in it, and place it over a fire. One of the villagers becomes curious and asks what they are doing. The travelers answer that they are making “stone soup”, which tastes wonderful, although it still needs a little bit of garnish to improve the flavor, which they are missing. The villager does not mind parting with a few carrots to help them out, so that gets added to the soup. Another villager walks by, inquiring about the pot, and the travelers again mention their stone soup that has not reached its full potential yet. The villager hands them a little bit of seasoning to help them out. More and more villagers walk by, each adding another ingredient. Finally, all enjoy a delicious and nourishing pot of soup.” (Source: Wikipedia)
