Opening of the Tomoaki Akasaka Photography Exhibition (Distance)

Photo by: Matej Pušnik

For renowned Japanese photographer, Tomoaki Akasaka, this exhibition within the framework of the Days of Poetry and Wine Festival marks his first on Slovenian soil. He has selected photographs taken in 2013 from a closed area around Fukushima, the city which was struck by an earthquake and tsunami in March 2011, and subsequently by a nuclear power plant disaster. His photographs reflect the indestructible force of nature, and how, over years, it can obliterate traces of human life altogether, and render the distressed area uninhabitable for centuries to come. While shooting in a natural setting, which requires a lot of patience, Tomoaki Akasaka is driven by the idea of the distance (Distance) between nature and man.

Concert: Kompost 3

Photo by: Matej Pušnik

At first glance, compost may not be an obvious voluntary point of comparison for musicians. But, for the members of this Vienna ensemble, compost represents something organic, natural and lively—all characteristics of their music. Trumpet, piano, bass, drums and an electronic baseline form the core of this fresh, funky sound that the band members (Martin Eberle, Benny Omerzeli, Manu Mayr and Lukas König) organically integrate into something completely new. After their debut album, Kompost 3 (2010), an album of remixes (Rekompost) and a two-year tour of Europe and North America, the band will present their third album, Epigenesis (2013), in Ptuj.

Photo by: Matej Pušnik

Creative workshop for primary school pupils Workshop leader: Metka Stergar *The workshop is intended for pupils of the first triad of primary school. Participation is free. A unique, sewn and handmade book entitled “The Wonderland Forest” tells the story of a girl who wishes to sing her song. A bird directs her into a magical forest, home to strange shadows and sounds… The words and art for The Giant Book were made by Metka Stergar and artist Miri Strnad. At the workshop, each child will choose a poem by a Slovenian poet for which he or she will produce an illustration using the remaining scraps of fabric.

Auctioneer: Boštjan Gorenc - Pižama Charity auction of chairs and benches with verses by poet guests * In collaboration with the artist, Tjaša Čuš This year’s charity auction, held on Friday, 29 August at 23:00 at Vraz Square and led by our experienced auctioneer, Boštjan Gorenc – Pižama, will be a particular challenge, as visitors will compete for nothing less than poetic furniture. Old chairs from the lofts of Ptuj will, in the hands of artist Tjaša Čuš, receive a new, poetic image, featuring a seal with verses from this year’s guest poets. Proceeds from the auction will be donated to the Center for Social Work in Ptuj.
