EXHIBITION | Tobias Putrih: Perceptron

25 March 2021 — 20 June 2021
In his conceptual, materially ephemeral projects that move between sculpture, architecture, and science, Tobias Putrih engages 20th century avant-gardes, in particular their utopian and visionary concepts of architecture and design. His works often take the shape of design proposals or models of existing architectural designs and historical ideas. Finding inspiration in the heritage of architectural experiment, such as the works of Buckminster Fuller, Friedrich Kiesler, and Yona Friedman, Putrih creates architectural modifications of public spaces.

DRAUGHT | Maxime Berthou, Mark Požlep, Hogshead 733

13 April 2021 — 29 August 2021
Mark Požlep works in the visual and performative arts, with spatial installations and video art. His artistic practice involves journey-travels, which function both as extended duration performance/endurance art and as art pieces in themselves. It is an intense procedural exploration that aims to reveal the tension between politics, poetics, and individual action.
