Špela Petrič

About artist / group: 

Špela Petrič (Sl) is an inter-media artist and researcher based between Ljubljana and Amsterdam. She received a PhD in Biomedicine at the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, and an Advanced Master in Arts from LUCA, Brussels, Belgium. Her practice is a multi-species endeavour, a composite of natural sciences, wet media and performance. She envisions artistic experiments that enact strange relationalities to reveal the ontological and epistemological underpinnings of our (bio)technological societies and challenge the scope of the adjacent possible. Much of her recent work has focused on plant life. Her work has been shown at many festivals, exhibitions and educational events around the world. She received several awards including the White Aphroid for outstanding artistic achievement, the Bioart and Design Award and an Honorary Mention at Prix Ars Electronica.
