The batch of photographs by Slovenian artist Tadej Zaic attempts to catch a brief moment, where passers-by are exposed to two converse affections: quiet anticipation and repulsed resignation. With a small sculpture, which in its shape all but reminds the viewer of canine excrement, but is covered by the finest beaten gold, Zaic wants to visualize his “merda d’oro” principle: The moment of daily disappointment, and respectively vice versa the reassessment of resignation into amazement at the casual gathering of small and smallest stories.


The works are framed by a small-scale batch of photographs which show randomly arranged ensembles of partially gold-covered hare excrement in public space.
