Maribor native intermedia artist Toni Soprano presents herself with the ʹout ta kē photo book. The book will be available at the UGM Šop at a price of 12 EUR. At the opening, a conversation with the artist will be held, moderated by Brigita Strnad, Museum Advisor at the UGM.
ʹout ta kē comes from the English term OUTTAKE, used in film terminology. An outtake is any take of a movie that is removed or otherwise not used in the final cut. Some of these takes are humorous mistakes made in the process of filming. These are errors, removed in order for the movie to “work”. The same expression applies in photography for pictures removed from the final series. In English language, if there are errors in the word ERRORS and R & R are left out, we get the word EROS: ER℟O℟S → EROS.
