The Kabinet

Hidden behind the well-known gallery ŠKUC in the old town in the center of Ljubljana is a little courtyard that shows remarkable similarities with the Wd8 courtyard. The old house inside this courtyard has been empty for years, but since a few years it houses 'the Kabinet', a movable gallery built out of symmetric cubes. 'The Kabinet' is a project by the 'Društvo za domače raziskave', the 'Society for Domestic Research'.

On April 17, 2008 the Kabinet will be connected to Wd8 via installing one of the surveillance cameras from the pigsty at the entrance of the Kabinet. The installation party is planned for Thursday, April 17, 2008 in the afternoon, from 15:00h to 18:00h.

The camera will be installed in front of the well-hidden door of the Kabinet.
The courtyard features a lot of interesting similarities to the Wd8 building...
However from the Kabinet courtyard you can see the tower from Ljubljana castle. Something that Wd8 cannot offer. But from the Wd8 courtyard you can *almost* see the Riegersburg.
Here are two more things that the Wd8 courtyard doesn't have (yet): A print of the hands of famous Slovenian artist Nani Poljanec and a walnut tree.
The Kabinet is located in the courtyard behind ŠKUC. This is the view from the Kabinet to the backdoor of ŠKUC gallery. The Kabinet is a project of the Domestic Research Society.
