The installation/performance happened the 2. 7. 2016 us part of the festival Ana Desetnica 2016 that this year took place in Tovarna Rog too us a way of supporting action.

BLINK BLINK is an installations which purpose was transform the space of the factory in a artificial world made by shiny/multicolour objects hanging from the ceiling and plastic foil closing the space into a semicircle.

To understand the work is necessary to know the background of the space in which the installation was made.
Tovarna Rog is a squat that is a complex of five buildings plus the main building and all of these are constantly housing activities. Rog Factory is filled with cultural, music, sport, social and other activities. Our work is based on autonomy, solidarity and mutual help.
On Monday, 6th of June at 03:15, the security company Valina stormed to Rog Factory in order to secure the place and turn it into a building ground according to the instructions of the mayor of Ljubljana, Zoran Janković. Their goal is to stop the rich abundance of activities held in Rog opposing the capitalist ideas of gentrification of the centre of the town and adjusting it to the tourists and the established art scene. In short, their goal is the eviction of the current users and demolishing of all the buildings except of the main one, which is supposed to be renewed into a new Rog Center.

The transforming space is a metaphor of the aesthetical, wonderful building us the municipality realised capitalist idea of "tidy" centre appropriate and likely to the tourists.
In the other side of the "kitsch" (space) are the performers expressing their fillings through their movement. That are the users of the factory working, creating in all different way (cultural, music, sport, social and other activities), freely in an alternative way.

The performance was accompanied by lively music that intensify the movement of the performers showing the "fighting" of the users of Tovarna Rog. 

The main idea of the work was to show the real support of people that commonly visit the factory and support the alternative with the interaction of the viewers. 

At the end of the performance, the space was full of people becoming part of the work and transforming into performers/fighter that oppose to the opponent
