Rainer Prohaska: Parking Violation

Installation Authorized by Rainer Prohaska
On View Through January 4, 2017

"A parking violation is the act of parking a motor vehicle in a restricted place or for parking in an unauthorized manner."  (Source: Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

Prohaska's work often uses found materials re-purposed with transgressive humor. This sculptural installation overturns our notions of sculpture and demonstrates the power of art to question our assumptions about the urban landscape and public space.

Rainer Prohaska is an Austrian conceptual artist who works in Berlin and Vienna. This work was commissioned by Transformer Station and conceived and installed by the artist during a three-month residency.

This project was made as part of the 2016 Fall Creative Fusion program, made possible with funding from the Cleveland Foundation, with promotional support from PNC Bank.
