Marko Pogačnik, Lithopuncture, 2004
In October 2004, Marko Pogačnik created a series of urban sculptures in Zagreb as part of the "Urban Intervention" project promoted by the MSU. They were part of a cycle that the Slovenian artist had been developing since the 1980s, entitled Lithopuncture. He saw this as a kind of acupuncture applied directly to the Earth's surface at certain "energy points", rather like acupuncture practised on the human body in relation to the chakras. Four years later the works were partially removed.
