Lives and works in Paris (FR)


Meta Drčar (1985) is a Slovenian artist based in Paris. She graduated in art in 2009 at the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London and obtained her Master’s degree in dancing and performance in 2012 at London’s Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. In her minimalist spatial installations, she frequently explores connections between the viewer’s moving body, sculpture, and architecture, as well as performative impacts emerging from the process. Drčar has presented herself at numerous independent and group exhibitions across Europe, in particular at Galerie Stadtpark, Krems an der Donau, Austria (2022), Delfi, Malmö, Sweden (2021), RAVNIKAR GALLERY SPACE, Ljubljana, Slovenia (2021), Mana Contemporary, New Jersey, USA (2020), Performance Affair, Brussels, Belgium (2019), Reaktor, Vienna, Austria (2019), Palazzo Monti, Brescia, Italy (2017), and Nuit Blanche, Paris, France (2017). She has received several work grants and residencies, such as Art and Architecture Residency (Woning Van Wassenhove), Sint-Martens-Latem, Belgium (2021), ADP, European Investment Bank Institute Luxemburg (2020), and WWA Fabrikken, Copenhagen, Denmark (2020).
