Since 2000, Matej Filipčič has conceived, directed and designed the sets for a line of independent authorial architecture-theatre projects: Interiors, 2000, Osum, 2002, Sanset, 2004, Ko mine (When it goes by), 2005, La La La..., 2007, Tosca, 2008, Marie Antoniette, 2010, A melancholic croquis, 2015. The performances were presented at international festivals in Potsdam, Reims, Paris, and Naples.
Matej Filipčič devotes special attention to theatrical space and objects in correlation with the narrative. In 2000, he mounted Theatre objects, a retrospective exhibition of his sets and theatre elements at the Jakopič Gallery, where the gallery exhibits carried the narration and the memory of the performances. His further theatre-gallery exhibits were Marie Antoinette, 2011, and A Crack In A Cosmic Egg, 2017.
The Filipčič’s theatre performances architectural structure is reminiscent of film framing and thus naturally led to the translation of his two theatre performances (Osum and Interieri) into film medium.
