The village of Vojka, on the Malý žitný ostrov region, is situated on an artificially created Danube island, between the old Danube riverbed and the water intake canal of the Gabčíkovo hydroelectric power station. The clash of floodplain nature and technology, isolation (the island‘s inhabitants are linked to the Žitný ostrov by a ferry) and dynamic population change (the decline of indigenous villagers and the rapid influx of urban population from Bratislava) all provide themes for artistic expression. This is what IN SITU, a group of artists and architects, is attempting to do in the language of nature art and site-specific art.
The exhibition was supported from public funds by the Fund for the Support of the Culture of National Minorities.
