Untitled (Archive ST3: Military Hospital) is the continuation of the project Untitled (Archive ST3) that was started in 2015. The focus of the project lies in the re-contextualization of the 1960s architecture – in this case, of the former Military Hospital in Split. At the time of its construction, it was very advanced in its equipment, as well as in its approach to architecture and design.
The works are hybrids at the intersection between photography, relief, and object. It consists of digital prints of archival photographs of the hospital’s exterior taken in 1965, before the hospital’s inauguration.
Each print is mounted on an aluminum board and forms a background for industrial color filters that have been fixed to the photographs with aluminum profiles.
The work questions the position of personal and social memory in relation to the heritage of modernist architecture.
The works were produced for the solo exhibition Split Archives at the C24 Gallery, New York, USA in 2018.
