Delta – An Affluence of Art
Documentary film about a group of artists sharing common workspace in Rijeka, Croatia.
They are an internationally acclaimed group of artists that exhibited their work across Europe, the USA, and China.
Precarious but exciting questions about the life and work of an artist, the dynamics of sharing a workspace with colleagues, contact with the audiences and the uncertain future of the building and the whole area in which they are located (which should according to plans, become the new city center), are the key subjects this film involves in. Artists continuously question each other and themselves about the nature of their relationship: are they a collective or just a group of people, which common values they share, what connects them: a simple need for working space or a set of common goals and life views.
Collaboration such as this of Delta 5 artists, where some of the spaces are common and some are individual studios, is one of the possible models for preserving the ideas of solidarity, altruism, and common sense and at the same time for bypassing the capitalist principles by which everything has its price and every field of human activity needs to be monetized, measured, calculated, commercialized and profitable.
