"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 the relations between the private and the public, the value of work and the use of land as a means of shaping (public) space and historical narratives. Her works often reference the role of art in the formation of cultural identity and public 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.
