Marjetica Potrč (b. 1953, Slovenia) received degrees in architecture (1978) and sculpture (1986, 1988) from the University of Ljubljana.

Potrc’s work inevitably points to the dangers of globalization, climate change and unsustainable urban growth. However, firmly imbued with an aesthetic of hope, it shows how rural living can offer a model for the future; a vibrant community that is both self-supporting and globally connected.

Her work has been featured in exhibitions throughout Europe and the Americas, including the Sao Paulo Biennial in Brazil (1996 and 2006); Skulptur. Projekte in Muenster, Germany (1997); The Structure of Survival at the Venice Biennial (2003); and FarSites at the San Diego Museum of Art, San Diego, CA (2005). She has had solo shows at the Guggenheim Museum in New York (2001); the Max Protetch Gallery, New York (2002, 2005 and 2008); the Nordenhake Gallery in Berlin (2003 and 2007); the PBICA in Lake Worth, Florida (2003); the MIT List Visual Arts Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts (2004); the Portikus in Frankfurt/Main, Germany (2006); The Curve, Barbican Art Galleries in London (2007); Venice Biennial 2009. 

"Finding an energy and a certain poetry in the architecture of the disenfranchised, Potrc creates an anti-monumental art that rethinks the concepts of publicity and privacy."
