The Unnoticed
Not paying attention to things that are not necessary for naked survival is part of our daily public, even private life in the city. Mateja Bučar and Društvo Umetnikov as UNNOTICED place themselves in the common urban space precisely for that reason. In order to direct the view on the overseen, they temporarily inhabit pieces of urban space. Dressed uniformly, they repeat the same, partly automated actions by moving differently and stepping away from the rules of good behaviour. In uniform and trained, albeit completely dislocated actions, they will provoke the passers-by’s attention and become noticed. With the aim of analysing the usual methods of stay in public space, their choreography takes place on the edge of normal expectations opening the possibility for a passer-by to notice a slippery slope, a rule-burdened relationship between a regulated and a spontaneous, a playful and an inhibited individual and community.

Mateja Bučar graduated in studies of classical and modern dance at the Ballet School Ljubljana and Centre de dance international Rosella Hightower, Cannes, France. She continued to study biology at the University of Ljubljana; in 1984 she became an employee with the Slovenian National Ballet in Ljubljana and 1989 she joined the Dance Theatre Ljubljana. Since 1992 she has been an independent choreographer.

Udruga DUM kulturna je organizacija aktivna u različitim domenama suvremene umjetnosti: izvedbenoj umjetnosti, likovnoj umjetnosti, plesu, teoriji i kritici umjetnosti…

Neprimijećeni
Poklanjanje pažnje stvarima koje ne trebamo za (manje-više) neposredan opstanak nije dio našeg svakodnevnog javnog, pa čak i privatnog života u gradu. Mateja Bučar i Društvo Umetnikov se kao NEPRIMIJEĆENI smještaju u zajednički urbani prostor upravo iz tog razloga. Kako bi usmjerili pogled na ono previđeno, privremeno naseljavaju dijeliće urbanog prostora. Odjeveni uniformno, ponavljaju istovjetne, djelomično automatizirane radnje krećući se drugačije i odstupajući od pravila ponašanja. Ujednačenim i istreniranim, premda potpuno iščašenim radnjama, izazivat će pažnju prolaznika, postati primijećeni. S ciljem izviđanja ustaljenih načina boravka u javnom prostoru, njihova koreografija odvija se na rubu normalnih očekivanja. Prolazniku otvaraju mogućnosti zapažanja klizavog terena, pravilima opterećenog odnosa reguliranog i spontanog, zaigranog i sputanog, pojedinca i zajednice.

Mateja Bučar diplomirala je klasični i moderni balet na ljubljanskoj Baletnoj školi i Centre de dance international Rosella Hightower u Cannesu. Nastavila je studij biologije na Sveučilištu u LJubljani, a 1984. postala je članica Sloevnskog narodnog baleta. Godine 1989. pridružila se Plesnom kazalištu Ljubljana. Od 1992. radi kao samostalna koreografkinja.
