Jane Štravs: Photographic Incarnations
Essays by: Marina Gržinić and W. J. T. Mitchell

Štravs’ opus of work is a trajectory of photographic images in an arc of time connecting two historical periods, both about to disappear : the period of 1980s socialism and the transitional,post- socialist period of independent Slovenia, after the declaration of independence from Yugoslavia in 1991. It is a powerful insight into the Ljubljana underground, into its transsexual stances, ruined bodies and heroic postures.

Marina Gržinić

Štravs’ images are citings as much as they are sightings. They veer between the serious and the frivolous, and they manage to send up both, ironizing both the dark and the light side of revolution, while releasing an uncontrollable beauty. The question they pose, then, is not what is to be done, but what is to be worn.

W.J.T. Mitchell
