Stephansplatz, 1010 Vienna

COLLECTIVE CORONA ROSE - art intervention at St. Stephan’s Cathedral from October 2020 to March 2024 WHAT helps against Corona? The corona pandemic has held us in its grip for months. So many things were no longer possible during the lockdown period, and even today necessary restrictions prevent us from normal social interaction. What certainly helps us are people who bring hope. Stories of hope. Works of art that give us hope. Artist Eva Petrič has been working on a large-scale Corona Rose in her native Slovenia during the lockdown, encouraging famous lace makers in Idrija to express their fears and hopes during the lockdown through creating hand-made rose petal-shaped lace. Eva Petrič put these together and combined them with found lace from all over the world to form a collective rose, which with its thousands of knots refers to the unconditional connection of all people, especially those in a state of emergency. Of course, every rose also has thorns that hurt. But the beauty of the rose will prevail. Since October 2020, this "Collective Corona Rose" on the church wall above the Friedrichsgrab in St. Stephan's Cathedral has meant to remind people of how we depend on one another and how much hope arises from treating each other with care and consideration.

EVA PETRIČ: WITHOUT SKIN –FLOATING Novel Translated from English by Ulrike Zimmermann, adapted by Reinhart Hosch How do you levitate without skin? Reducing the title of the book to this question would mean dragging the stroke of genius of a 24-year-old Slovenian precisely into the one-dimensional grid of reality that is beguilingly abandoned in this book. In an easily readable plot, Eva Petrič succeeds in linking the history of three generations and two countries - Slovenia and Argentina - so empathetically that polyphonic reality as a network of perception, memory, collective history, night and day dreams, art and intuition of transcendence, even object animism, is experienced with rousing intensity. In search of life-saving stem cells from her family scattered across three continents, the young photo reporter Laura, who is suffering from leukaemia, flies through her possibilities of existence in conflicts between love and healing, micro- and macrocosm, symbolic world and everyday life, yes, between disembodiment and the necessary dwelling place for the soul. In her novel, Eva Petrič conveys borderline experiences similar to those of today – a good 15 years later – as an internationally recognized multimedia artist with her installations in public space, which metaphorically combine science and existential thinking. Without skin floating was written in Slovenian and English, also appeared in Spanish and is now available in German for the first time. Reinhart Hosch, Vienna, May 2023 Published by Löcker Wien
