IN-between-SPACE

Eva Petrič

In the Burgkapelle, Eva Petrič stages a multimedial work based on an ESA photograph of the space telescope "Hubble", depicting newly emerged stars and star constellations.

 

Petrič replicates this specific stellar formation, by sewing countless little doilies together into large textile shapes and stretching them across the chapel like a backdrop. Additionally, there is a soundscape with NASA recordings of sounds from outer space, the artist's singing and music by her and Matija Strniša, together with photographic projections which transform the room into an interactive, evocative structure. The chapel as a spiritual setting oversteps the boundaries of its former purpose. The existential questions, so pressing in the spiritual context are raised in an extended discourse, outside the religious framework, which combines the big bang theory and the theological myth of Creation /.../
