Janja ®vegelj (born in 1967)

®vegelj was born on 20 December 1967 in Ljubljana. In 1995 she graduated in the class of Prof Lujo Vodopivec at the Ljubljana Academy of Fine Arts. From 1994 to 1996 she participated in the activities of the informal Provokart group (street actions, a magazine advertising unusual art, etc.). Solo presentations of her art have been equally unconventional, drawing attention to the relationship between the artist and the exhibition system: either through an intimate casting of a portrait of a curator or through an action consisting of a squash game with a curator in a gallery. Her work was included in the exhibition and book "Body and the East: od ¹estdesetih do danes / From the 1960s to the Present" (Moderna Galerija 1998; MIT Press 1999). She declined an invitation to present her work at Manifesta 3 in Ljubljana.
