Špela Petrič

Špela Petrič is a Slovenian new media artist and former scientific researcher currently based between Ljubljana and Amsterdam. She obtained a PhD in Biomedicine from the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, and an Advanced Master of Arts from LUCA, Brussels, Belgium. Her practice is a multi-species endeavor, a composite of natural sciences, wet media and performance. She envisions artistic experiments that enact strange relationalities to reveal the ontological and epistemological underpinnings of our (bio)technological societies and challenge the scope of what is possible. Much of her recent work has focused on plant life. Her work has been shown at many festivals, exhibitions and educational events around the world, including at the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
