Galerie Greta Meert, Brussels

February 26 — April 9, 2016


On display at the gallery was a group of framed wooden panels, recycled stage boards from the largest Slovenian theater stage, Gallus Hall, built in the 1970s and renovated in 2010. The edges from the old, discarded boards were trimmed and assembled into wall panels. The patterns on these trims date back to the 1970s when the stage was constructed and spills of black paint accidentally penetrated the cracks between stage boards.

Visitors were encouraged to participate – to play with the long, soft objects, which they could bend into desirable forms and place or pose with them in front of a green screen.

Tobias Putrih Studio & Workshop

Tobias Putrih, Aleš Korpič, Matej Nolda, Jure Mežek & STRID fabricators


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.
