Sašo Sedlaček (1974) graduated from sculpture and video at the Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana (2000). He has received several awards and participated in numerous solo and group shows, including at the Secession in Vienna, the Sixth Taipei Biennial, the Museum of Modern Art in Ljubljana, the Ludwig Museum in Budapest, the October Saloon in Belgrade, Ars Electronica in Linz, Transemdiale 2014 in Berlin and the Museumsquartir (MUMOK, Freiraum) in Vienna. He has been an artist-in-residence at the ISCP in New York, IAMAS in Japan, and The Israeli Center For Digital Art in Holon. Since 2015, he works as an Associate Professor at Video and New Media course at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana.
Sedlaček’s 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 and waste materials. His practical and humorous works result from subversive recycling of scientific, legal, or technological facts and employing DIY (do-it-yourself) and collaborative methods.
