The selected location for the Untitled (Archive Omiš: Health Center) spatial intervention is the façade of the Health Center in Omiš, Croatia, which is also the focus of the work. The building was designed by architect Zoja Dumengjić from 1957 to 1959, at a time when much more thoughtful investments were made in health care due to the highly developed social awareness in society. From that time until today, the city's population has almost doubled and health space capacities have remained unchanged. In the meantime, the building has undergone a very poor renovation that has largely nullified the values of the original project. An element of architecture that remained unchanged was detected through archival material. A red canvas is stretched on it, emphasizing the original architectural proportion and thought.
The work was produced for the Almissa Open Art Festival in Omiš, Croatia, where it was presented on August 25, 2020.
