Boris Podrecca

EU & YOU, Objekt anlässlich der Erweiterung der Europäischen Union 2004, 2004

Boris Podrecca created a work at the interface of architecture, sculpture and intervention in public space, which has been executed as a selfcommunicating and interactive sculpture. It is self-referential through its cartographic preciseness and moreover reflects itself in a laterally reversed manner. The work depicts the map of Austria and of four of its neighbouring countries, of which the frontiers appear engraved in their national colours. Only through the presence of the visitor does the sculpture become interactive in its own right as a place of communication. 

 

BORIS PODRECCA: EU & YOU, object created on the occasion of the enlargement of the European Union in 2004

 

Boris Podrecca created a moving work at the interface of architecture, sculpture and intervention in public space, which he called EU & YOU, Objekt anlässlich der Erweiterung der Europäischen Union, and which has also become known as Info-Pavillon. The work has been executed as a self-communicating and interactive sculpture: Although it works as an info pavilion, neither oral nor written information are obtained there, since it is a self-referential sculpture that refers to itself with cartographic preciseness and moreover reflects itself in a laterally reversed manner.


The work consists of the ground plan map of Austria and of four of its neighbor countries, the frontiers of which appear engraved in national colors. It needs us as places of communication in order to become an interactive sculpture in its own right.
