Nevena Aleksovski is an artist who carves expressive fragments of human bodies, plants and objects into a multifaceted visual language. Within the minimalist, purified artistic expression, she explores ways of expressing as much as possible with as few means as possible, with each individual element becoming a depot of strong emotions and various interpretations. The reduction of elements is also a kind of personal restraint against the information oversaturation of the visual landscape and expresses the need for rest and contemplation. Through the prism of personal, intimate experiences, Nevena reveals social phenomena, while filling the intersection between the two worlds with humour, irony, melancholy, anxiety and alienation.
Nevena Aleksovski (1984) graduated in painting from the Academy of Arts in Novi Sad in 2008 and received her MA in Cultural Studies at the Faculty of Social Sciences in Ljubljana in 2014. She is active in the fields of drawings, painting, illustration and art zines. Her work has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions, both locally and internationally. She is also a pedagogue at the ŠKUC and Alkatraz galleries in Ljubljana, as well as an associate of the Red Dawns Feminist and Queer Festival, and the co-organizer of the Reciklart – festival of artistic recycling and diy culture. She currently lives and works in Ljubljana.
