Public writing and monuments in public space play an important role in the work of Marko Lulić. He detaches ideologically laden signs from their usual function, revealing their nature as political models and thus suddenly rendering them ambivalent.
The Institut für Kunst im öffentlichen Raum Steiermark has invited Marko Lulić to create an installation at VAZ Mürzer Oberland in the Kapellen area in the Mürz valley. For some time, the Institute has been devoting its attention to this special region with its diverse political, ecclesiastical and industrial past and the special conditions in terms of climate and geography: it is a fascinating theme for contemporary art to grapple with. Marko Lulić engages with these special local conditions with his intervention.
