Old Power Station-Elektro Ljubljana, Ljubljana, Slovenia
In the frame of festival Mladi levi.
The Stara mestna elektrarna is an iconic building in Ljubljana that will celebrate its 120th anniversary next year. Its chimney is one of the city’s landmarks. Elektrarna leads a double life – it is still the electric heart of Ljubljana, but at the same time also serves as a theatre. Sometimes though, its theatre role is somehow invisible, hidden deep in its bowels. Therefore, we have decided in cooperation with Elektro Ljubljana to mark our presence in Elektrarna from the outside as well. And what better way to do it than with art?
The first to take on the challenge of the great wall will be Toni Soprano, an intermedia artist and set designer, who is a regular guest of Elektrarna. So far, the wall has only belonged to Elektro Ljubljana and graffiti artists, but from now on, it will belong in part to every artist creating in Elektrarna, to all those who live across the street, and to all passers‑by.
