Urša Prek (1993, Slovenia) is an interdisciplinary artist based in Eindhoven, Netherlands. Her work, ranging from visual to sound installations, explores the territories of time and space. Understanding space as a fundamental context of human experience is a curiosity that drives her to map out her relationship towards it. She is relentlessly trying to make sense of things that make us who we are: the passage of time, the value of memory, and their relation to space. From audio, video, image and sculpture, her work falls some place in between.

I am a collage of moments from ‘here and now’, but then I am also ‘tomorrow and there’ as well as ‘back then and there’. So, in a way I exist in multiple timelines and spaces, or rather, they all exist simultaneously within me. I am curious about these bridges that appear within me – nostalgia especially. Does it tell more about the inevitability of the future without me, than the past itself? And space, it presents itself as the interface on which everything comes together.
