“At least equally important, if not the most important part of my artwork, is the space. In the Australian desert, a church in Liverpool or in a small Siberian village, or on urban roof tops and buildings. All kind of spaces.
The majority of my artworks were created especially for those spaces. With objects carefully chosen to work within the space, that resonated for the community or its history. Clothes from Venetians for the ‘Dressed house’ in Venice, toy cars from the people of Adelaide to be part of ‘Small cars members only’ project on a huge brick wall in Adelaide, watering cans for the ‘Moon Plain’ project in one of the driest places on earth in the Australian desert. Researching how the space will change with multiplying same or similar objects in a space is a core part of my practice. So the space + the objects = Artwork. When you pull them apart the artwork no longer exist.
What I create is temporary. It can be from one day to three months. After that what I create exist only on photos. So when I start working my perception is also a photographers one, knowing the photo image will be the only way to show it to everyone who was not able to see it in situ.
At the end the photo images for me are not just documentation of the art piece. They are artworks.” From Matej Andraz Vogrinčič’s website
