Macedonian artists showcase installation at Sziget festival

 Architect Marija Hristovska-Stevkovska and artist Gjorge Jovanovic are the authors of an installation dubbed Pleasure Letters that is part of the 25th Sziget music festival in Budapest.


The installation is displayed as part of the festival's programme Art of Freedom, established to give a platform to young creative artists to present their ideas and talents.

"The installation functions both as work of art and as leisure activity at the festival. It's where festival-goers get together. The initial idea stems from the use and playing with letters consisted in the name of the festival. Each letter is re-designed in an item for various activities: taking a rest, hanging out, interactive photography, etc," Jovanovic has said adding that six items, 25 meters long in total, had been made.

The project of Hristovska-Stevkovska and Jovanovic was picked in February at a call of the Sziget festival. The installation was prepared for months at locations in Skopje and Ohrid.

The 25th edition of the Sziget festival, one of the largest music and cultural festivals of Europe, draws hundreds of thousands of people. From Aug. 9 until Aug. 16, festival-goers will see performances by Pink, PJ Harvey, Rudimental, Kasabian, Hurts, Interpol, etc.
