The artist JAŠA represents Slovenia at the Venice Art Biennial 2015 with the project UTTER / The violent necessity for the embodied presence of hope. JAŠA’s new work is conceived as an installation and on-site performance and focuses on three major themes: resistance, collaboration and hope.

“It is my goal to use the Slovenian pavilion as a platform to confront an international audience with the overall project ex- perience as a living functional mechanism driven by the solidarity of all elements involved: installation, visual elements, lighting, projections, sound, and performance. Thus, I intend to create and enable an overall experience of solidarity as an efficient way of operation. I believe in continuous and sustainable collaboration as a basis for the development and commu- nicative value of the project.”

JAŠA (Mrevlje-Pollak) was born in Ljubljana in 1978. He studied at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Venice and is seen as one of Slovenia’s most prolific and critically recognized contemporary artists. He works in his two active studios in New York and Ljubljana, Slovenia.
