Andrej
Škufca 


Born in 1987, Ljubljana (SI)
Lives and works in Ljubljana (SI)

Andrej Škufca’s work presents itself as a network characterized by fiction, technological design, industrial fabrication processes and synthetic materials. His installations not only combine technological and fictional elements, but produce immersive and seemingly animated environments, in which human agents are no longer central. He has had solo shows in Močvara, Zagreb; Aksioma, Ljubljana; The International Center of Graphic Arts, Ljubljana; Miroslav Kraljević Gallery, Zagreb; Karlin Studios, FUTURA, Prague; DUM Project Space Ljubljana. And participated in group shows in MAXXI - National Museum of XXI Century Arts, Rome; Ludwig Muzeum, Budapest; Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova, Ljubljana; Het Niewe Institut, Rotterdam, Nitja in Oslo and Gallery of Modern Art, Ljubljana. He is also an editor at Šum journal.
