PPAC: Stožice street art 3

Here is the last part of the mysterious series of photos that I didn’t take. As you will see, the photographer felt increasingly uneasy and got the hell out of there, no matter that there were two more levels to explore.

As I explained in part 1 of this series, it is all a result of mom showing me an interview with visiting street art photographer Martha Cooper who mentioned this 3-level unfinished mall in Ljubljana 15 minutes from my parents as the pinnacle of her Slovenian street art experience.

The next thing I knew I had a card full of images from there. Funny how this happens.

The series finishes today with a bunch of monsters, some ninjas, an (unseen) man running in the distance, and then we get the hell out of there – instead of to the next level because the passage only becomes clear in the last photo.

    1. Right, Sue, and I’m happy for these guys. As for the mall, obviously it was a side project in the middle between the arena and the stadium, the two completed priorities in this project. I hear it’s been sold so who knows how long it will be abandoned like this.

  2. I love street art but not so much the graffiti that often accompanies it. Derelict buildings draw the graffiti in. They make some very interesting photos that speak of our time though. So many with so much imagination and nowhere to to go with it.

  3. Oooh, interesting. Was it spooky, is that why you beat the hell out of there? It did seem kind of spooky. I think it’s the sometimes aggressiveness of the graffiti font with the desertedness of the urban landscape – there’s something dystopian about it. Very modern Hopper type feel.

    Love the artistic self-portrait in the fragmented mirrors – tres cool 🙂

    1. Thank you, Amanda, I’m glad you like my offerings. I’ve seen your today’s FF post and will see what I can do about close-ups with my better new-old camera. Today I posted the video that Sandy did for me – a 3 minute memoir. She did such a great job.
