Ravne na Koroškem

2016 – permanent public art installation


A sculpture designed for a residential neighborhood in Ravne na Koroškem – a steel town in the northern Slovenia – offered as a way of drawing out the town’s history of mass housing. A prefabricated concrete cubic unit of typical residential housing developed in the 1950s is replaced by a set of smaller modular steel walls, all connecting at 60- or 30-degree angles. The result of such geometry is a playful, sprawling growth of a structure, creating unpredictable spaces and proposing different ways of dwelling.

We develop materially ephemeral settings and objects designed to engage utopian ideas in art, architecture and design by incorporating everyday materials and forms of play and participation. From make-shift modifications of public and semi-public spaces—cinemas, a library, galleries—to constructing temporary environments and objects, works are products of precisely specified processes while also responding to their sites. Many of  spaces and objects are activated—meant to be moved and inhabited, privileging play and bodily engagement. Artworks become proposals, maquettes, or models—exploratory assertions of radical possibilities.
