Biography

Uršula Berlot, (b. Ljubljana, 1973) studied philosophy at the Faculty of Arts for two years, then painting at the Academy of Fine Arts, University of Ljubljana, and at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris. She received her Ph.D. in 2010 at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design, University of Ljubljana, where she has been teaching since 2009 at the Chair of Theoretical Studies.
She works as a visual artist, art theorist and lecturer, whose interests lie at the intersections of art, science and philosophy. Her artistic practice focuses on the invisible and immaterial aspects of reality, often employing technologically advanced optical research tools (radiology, microscopy) in her explorations of the liminal aspects of perception. Her experimental and research-based art practice extends across various media and genres, such as light and kinetic installations, video, drawing and virtual (mixed reality) art. In her video, light and kinetic work, Berlot investigates various forms and expressions of psycho-emotional spaces, the aesthetic and technical potential of simulated nature, and the relationships between mind, body and media.
