Marijetica Potrč

Marjetica Potrč (born 1953) is an artist and architect based in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Potrč’s interdisciplinary practice includes on-site projects, research, architectural case studies, and series of drawings. Her work documents and interprets contemporary architectural practices (in particular, with regard to energy infrastructure and water use) and the ways people live together.

Marjetica Potrč received degrees in architecture (1978) and sculpture (1986, 1988) from the University of Ljubljana. In 1990, she moved to the United States. Her installations from this period often involved walls of various kinds, e.g. Two Faces of Utopia (1993, made for the Slovene Pavilion at the Venice Biennial), and the series Theatrum Mundi: Territories (1993–1996). A statement she made at the time – “I don’t make objects. I build walls” – positions her work against object-based sculpture. In 1994, she moved back to Ljubljana. Since then, Potrč’s work has developed at the intersection of visual art, architecture, and social science.
