Silvia Popp
Silvia Popp situates art as an ongoing process of investigations, which works by communication and exchange. Art opens, whether as a metaphor or concrete action, perceptions, opportunities and needs for action. She is interested in specific, physical or metaphorical places and their conditions. Place as space, as dimension - place as a community, as a network, as a discourse – place as a position, a status as an impulse. What kind of questions, frictions and contradictions include places. What makes their identity and how and who claims the use of this places? Through on-site interaction a process starts and the social-economic values and systems are being questioned, the discourse with the audience begins.
