Dober Dan Keramika! – Slovenia 2018
Dober Dan Keramika!
EXHIBITION: FROM TRADITIONAL TO CONTEMPORARY CERAMICS
THE STORY ABOUT FERMENTATION LOCK
The association Majolika in collaboration with Slovenska Bistrica Culture Institute organises the accompanying event of UNICUM Triennial for the fourth time. The principal theme of the exhibition is tradition as a challenge to contemporary fine art expression. This year the theme of the exhibition is fermentation lock.
Ceramic fermentation locks are a forgotten product of pottery tradition although they are still an indispensable part of the equipment of any winemaker. And what does tradition say? When the cellar through the fermentation locks “sang”, the must began to ferment, change into wine and when the cellar “sinks in silence” St. Martin celebrates new wine.

Gala opening: Saturday, May 19th, at 11.00
View: Tuesday to Friday, 9.00–17.00 and Saturday, 11.00–15.00 (till September 5th)
