Petra Veber: The Wall

Four years ago, we marked the eastern wall of the Old Power Station for the first time with an artistic intervention. It became the building’s window into the world, a point of change that communicates with the street, testifying to the fact that in addition to electricity, the Power Station has a sparkling point of artistic energy – that it hosts a theatre! Every two years, we reach out to a visual artist who works in theatre and has already woven her creative skills into the performances at the Old Power Station. The wall was first painted by Toni Soprano Meneglejte with the inscription Aplavz (Applause), and later Aplavz2. On the occasion of the 15th anniversary of the Old Power Station, Urša Vidic captured the names of all the artists who performed at the Old Power Station in the slogan Svoboda (Freedom), written in the sound alphabet. This time, we invited set designer and versatile theatre artist Petra Veber, who also works as a light designer, photographer and dramaturge. In her multi layered creations, Veber often uses simple gestures to draw a piercing social commentary.

This time, the Old Power Station’s wall will become a play on meanings, which we will be able to construe ourselves from the letters. Some of them will be hidden, and the most important ones will be clear at first glance.
Long live art!
