Ana Likar (1996) completed her studies of fine arts at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, and also studied at the Faculty of Arts in Ljubljana and the Academy of Fine Arts in Athens. As an intermedia artist, she starts with questions about the conditions of narrative and image production, thereby trying to address that which remains hidden. Themes such as the undercut ideas of progress, the ruins of contemporaneity and ideological loops in popular science discourses often take shape in her works through repetition, layering and (non)transparency. Her works have been featured in several group and solo exhibitions in Vienna (mumok, New Jörg, Mauve, Fluc), Ljubljana (Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova, Natural History Museum of Slovenia, Gallery P74, Gallery 7:069, Miklova Hiša Gallery, DobraVaga), Belgrade, Moscow and Gyumri (Armenia).
