Gašper Torkar / SI
Torkar is a multi-faceted artist whose body of work, stretched between poetry, music and other artistic forms, has brought him to various literary, theatre and club stages. Even as he debuted with his collection of poems Podaljšano bivanje (Day Care), he was tempering his creative backbone at events such as Belo smetje (White Trash). Soon after, he contributed his own production pieces and music material for a number of theater plays (Nemo mesto, Utopija, Hamlet – Silent City, Utopia, Hamlet), as well as M. Bricelj Baraga’s installation Cyanometer. At the 2016 Club Marathon, he proved himself an excellent architect of electronic soundscapes, as you will be able to see in his musical debut, which you are about to witness. And yet, Torkar’s restless creative spirit is already taking him on new adventures, as he is currently already working on two new art installations and recently announced an upcoming poetry collection.
