"Whats Up Bro?" ("Di si brate?"), collage, unburned clay, 2016
Luiza Margan is a visual artist working with installation, sculpture, video and public space. She is born in Rijeka, Croatia and is living in Vienna and Rijeka.
In her art practice, she explores relations between the private and the public, the value of changing labor conditions and identities tied to it. She looks into the use of land and public property as places of inscription of historical narratives and as a means of shaping public space.
Her works often reference the role of art in the formation of cultural identity, value and space. By dissecting historical, ideological, or aesthetic value systems, she creates new readings of space, social relations and their future imaginings.
Formally playful and materially polyamorous, her works are informed through archives, field research and walking, as well as collecting of found materials.
Margan has exhibited in numerous exhibitions, collaborative projects, public space actions and talks. Currently, she is a fellow at Akademe Schloss Solitude outside Stuttgart.
