SAŠO SEDLAČEK

BIOGRAPHY

(1974, Ljubljana, Slovenia). Graduated in Sculpture and Video at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, 2000. Sašo is a Ljubljana-based artist whose primary interest seems to be things that people overlook and the ways in which they can be made useful once again. His work is generally defined by theories of disposal and the use and reuse of cheap technologies, open source software and waste materials. His practical and humorous works result from a subversive recycling of scientific, legal, technological facts and by employing DIY (do-it-yourself) and collaborative methods. He attended various residencies and received number of awards, among others 26th Alexandria bienalle award, Alexandria, Egipt , 2014; TREND AWARD, exceptional achievements in visual culture, Ljubljana, Slovenija, 2012; Artist of the month, Siement Art Lab, Vienna, Austria, 2009; VIDA 11, Fundación Telefónica, Madrid, Spain , 2008.
