Working The City

Info
Sculptural Intervention, Stone, Metal, Video, Skopje Macedonia, 2007

The various states of preservation of Skopje’s buildings and streets were attracting most of my attention after my arrival. In this city with its reach history and legacy of traditional Macedonian architecture and Ottoman buildings, as well as modernist architecture developed before and mostly after the 1963 earthquake, the issue of preservation and ongoing attention towards architectural structures seems to be ongoing and relevant. “Working the city” is a sculptural and performative work that is created with discarded building material found by the Macedonian Opera and Ballet piled up and left in front of the building after recent reconstructions.
