Marjetica Potrc
„Permanently Unfinished House with Cell Phone Tree”

Opening: 19 February, 7 p.m.
Lecture: 28 March, 7 p.m.: with Marjetica Potrc (in cooperation with the Architecture Initiative Salzburg)

As an artist who trained as an architect Marjetica Potrc is committed to subjects related to architecture and urban construction. She is interested in public spaces, urban development and planning. Her favourite topics are enclosed town districts, for instance slums or favelas at the lower end of the scale, or the closed cities of the rich at the opposite end of the social scale. Renewable energy, visual environmental pollution, ecology, creative treatment of criminality etc. form the focus of her work. Her exhibition in the Salzburg Kunstverein has been given the working title Permanently Unfinished House with Cell Tower and dealt with the relationship between architecture and how building work is legally controlled, and also analyses discussions related to the ecological and aesthetic aspects of mobile phone transmitter masts.

Marjetica Potrc was born in 1953 and lives in Ljubljana. In 2000 she was awarded the Hugo Boss Prize of the Guggenheim Museum in New York, in 2002 she participated in the exhibition Designs for the Real World organised by the Generali Foundation in Vienna.
