Viktor Popovic at Portland Institute of Contemporary Art Residency


PICA / PAC present Viktor Popovic’s installation at Portland Art Center. Croatian artist, Popovic is visiting Portland through a residency with CEC ArtsLink (NY). CEC ArtsLink is an international arts service organization whose programs support the exchange of artists in the United States with their counterparts in Central Europe, Russia and Eurasia.

Popovic’s temporal, glowing installation of chairs has been culled for the exhibit from people he has encountered during his residency. The delicately orchestrated pile reflects the aura of its owners. Popovic uses light, found and industrial materials to construct his piece about contemplation. Recently featured in the Triennial of Croatian Sculpture in Zagreb, Croatia, Popovic is one of the most important emerging artists in this region.

This installation is being presented by PICA in collaboration with the Portland Art Center, with special thanks to Goldsmith Buildings LLC.
