Nika Oblak & Primož Novak
Nika Oblak & Primož Novak (Ljubljana) have been working as a tandem in the field of contemporary art since 2003. After concluding their studies at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana, they continued their education in Berlin. Their work has been presented in prestigious venues of contemporary art around the world, such as: Sharjah Biennial (UAE), Japan Media Arts Festival, Tokio (JP), Istanbul Biennial (TR), Biennale Cuvee, Linz (AT), Transmediale Berlin (DE), FILE Sao Paulo (BR), etc. They received numerous scholarships and awards, among others the CYNETART Award by Trans-Media-Akademie Hellerau in Dresden (DE) and in 2017 the White Aphroid Award by MMC Kibla (SI). They live and work in Ljubljana.
In their works, Nika Oblak & Primož Novak, in a humorous and self-ironic manner, discuss the absurdities of contemporary everyday life and our subjection to the traditional conventions, popular culture and contradictions of the art world. Their creative practice involves video and photography in order to create ambivalent artistic interventions and kinetic installations.
