16 The Golden Calf: Exhibition

The artistic research in the intersection of religion, politics and industry brought “The Golden Calf” MFA exhibition into being, presented in three rooms of the old agricultural cooperative.
Strolling through the rooms the golden calf first came to life in the oil cow portraits, then in the rows of cells and on the conveyor belt; in the next room it became a scene on the one side and a code on the other, and in the last room – the gift shop – it became a commodity, which could be put in the viewer’s pocket or taken home and put on the shelf.

The old agricultural cooperative in Mavčiče near Kranj, Slovenia, was the site of the art exhibition
