Biography

Urša Prek is an multidisciplinary artist based in Eindhoven, Netherlands. Her work, ranging from visual art to sound installations, currently focuses on the notion of space. The way we perceive space is a curiosity that drives her to reevaluate spatial experience in correlation to history and memory. The dialectics between subjective memory and space are never absolute nor static. From audio, video, photography, text, painting and sculpture; her work is not subjected to a specific media but rather the opposite: it often fluctuates in between.

‘’In connection to space – which is my main curiosity – I would describe my process as a form of mapping. I map the parallels, the ‘no man’s land’, between personal history, perception of space-time and identity. I imagine these trajectories propelled from me toward the space and vice versa: how will a room or a city remember you? Soon we start speaking about legacy, and for me, these are inseparable.’’ – Ursa
