Cordially invited at my playGROUND: caught in lace compositions, in the intracelullar/interstellar webs – in Jean Nouvel Design Tower stilwerk Vienna, Praterstrase 1. Official opening: 16. 9. at 19:00. On view already from Sept.9., every day from 8:00 in the morning to midnight, closing on Oct.6.
What is our home, where is our home? What defines the concept of home? Territory, language, culture, traditions, family, relatives, physical borders?
Our home exists on different levels: we, as a web of people, are at home on Earth, our Earth is at home in our Solar system, which was left by Voyager 1 for the first time in Sept. 2013, entering into interstellar space.
At the same time we are at home in ‘our inner cellular worlds’… Caught in lace compositions, in the delicate webs that tie us together, we are a part of a greater web – the world wide intercellular/stellar web.
As we look upwards into the “stellar sky”, we find ourselves at the same time being part of “inner cellular worlds”, caught into lace compositions, the delicate webs that tie us together and make us a part of a web in the world wide intercellular stellar webs.
2014 marks the 60-years anniversary of CERN, where the world wide web was initiated – let my playGROUND there’s no place like home act as hommage to the fundamental research of studying the components of matter and the forces, holding them together as huge detectors study these collisions and thousand of particles emerging from them.
Cordially invited to my playGROUND – there’s no place like home…installation at stilwerk (Pratestrasse 1) where ideas, inspirations, hopes and motivations collide.
The mirror surfaces detect, document these collisions as reflections, spreading them….

They offer us to study, detect, digest, reflect these collisions, the fundamental constituency of matter and the forces holding us together – defining the spaces and dimensions of our inner outer worlds, with us joining these together, making up what we call the space in between – our playGROUND.
Cordially invited to join me at
at Jean Nouvel design tower in stilwerk, Praterstrasse 1, on Sept. 16, 19:00.
The exhibition will be opened by the ambassador of Slovenia to Austria, HE dr. Andrej Rahten.
Katja Sinkovec will fill the available interwebs space with piano music.
Hope to meet you there,
