When on a winter’s night a traveler
When this installations specialist comes to town, surrounding sites with ordinary objects, made in series, strange phenomena often occur. The work of Matej Andraž Vogrinčič is a reaction to space. His goal is not to conquer the latter but to try to incorporate his work in it so as the two can merge. The installation is born out of this mix.
About the artist
Matej Andraž Vogrinčič was born on October 12th 1970 in Ljubljana, Slovenia. He has been creating site-specific work in urban and natural environments since the early 1990s. He has built an international reputation by creating installations specific to local places, traditions, and histories – filling the most ordinary or neglected places with even more ordinary objects. With all his work, Vogrinčič starts with the space but always leaves room to alter and develop the idea in the process. His projects rely on a direct connection with the local community.
