Exhibition Book Designer
Design for a bilingual book/exhibition catalogue, Andreja Brulc: Odstiranja/Unveilings, accompanying the exhibition with the same title (Galerija, Kulturni dom Šmarje pri Jelšah, Slovenija • 7 Feb–24 Mar 2023), curated by Karmen Volavšek, who also wrote the introduction.
The book required a minimalist yet dynamic approach to the design in order to represent a showcase of varied artwork made during the last 20 years.
This art catalogue offers a fragmentary insight into the 20-year creative oeuvre of Andreja Brulc, who experiments with traditional and modern techniques, materials and typography in her work. In her artistic practice, she uses manual methods and crafts as a subversive technique in an innovative way.… The catalogue presents selected book covers for the literary publishing house Beletrina (2007-2016), a selection of children’s book illustrations for the poetry collection Barvice (Feri Lainšček, 2010) and art projects (London–Ljubljana, London Meal, Beautiful [Random Project], Krst pri Savici, Tower of Babel, Tales of Two Cities, 2003-23).
