Examples of the use of the Stag in visual art from cave painting to the present.

Neue Slowenische Kunst: Krst pod Triglavom, 1986

The large, mobile stags that played a prominent part in the scenography of Krst pod Triglavom (Baptism under Triglav). This was the largest-ever Slovene theatrical spectacle and used avant-garde art to explore Slovene identity. The stag is a key NSK signifier.

The stags are also clearly visible in the 1987 video for Laibach’s Geburt einer Nation

Mario Merz – Untitled (Double Igloo of Porto) at Pirelli Hangar Bicocca, Milan

Until 24th February you have the chance to witness this remarkable work in the cavernous ex-industrial space of the Pirelli Hangar. Originally installed outdoors at Oporto, in its new temporary home it assumes new resonances, with the remarkable industrial structure lending it a newly heroic aspect. All photos by Alexei Monroe.
