Sv. Urh, Exhibition 1941-1945

ATELIERarhitekti / 2020

At St. Urh in the existing covered remains of the former “mežnarija”, an exhibition has been created about the events between 1941 and 1945, which are related to this place and the wider area. It was created instead of the exhibition arranged in the church of St. Urh until the 1990s.

The open canopy space above the basement is covered with mesh elements, which is not only a utilitarian barrier, but heralds a special event in the space. It is intended for the exhibition of informative material. The basement, where the prisoners were tortured, is only dimly lit and has been kept intact. Only the metal door, on which photographs of the identified victims are placed, are new and are symbolically so wide that they cannot be closed.
