Jaša Mrevlje Pollak will develop a site-specific project that will involve a permanent display as well as work in progress.
JAŠA (Mrevlje-Pollak, b. 1978), one of Slovenia’s most prolific and influential contemporary artist, does more than create site-specific installations. Driven by his distinct interpretations of situation, narrative, sculpture and performance, his spaces are transformed into experiences and are propelled into their poetic potential.
Pushing artistic boundaries through uncompromising vision for almost two decades, Jaša has created a rich and remarkable body of work that includes multiple critically acclaimed solo shows and projects in Europe and the US.
In his two active studios in New York and Ljubljana, Slovenia, JAŠA has created a unique environment which allows him to cultivate contextual and visual eventuality integral to his work.
