Vogrinčič Matej Andraž

Matej Andraž Vogrinčič was born on October 12th 1970 in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

He has been creating site-specific work in urban and natural environments since the early 1990s. He has built an international reputation by creating installations specific to local places, traditions, and histories – filling the most ordinary or neglected places with even more ordinary objects. With all his work, Vogrinčič starts with the space but always leaves room to alter and develop the idea in the process. His projects rely on a direct connection with the local community.
