Maja Smrekar (1976) graduated from sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana, where she also completed her Master’s degree at the Department of Video and New Media. In her work, she thematizes radical social changes caused by using new technologies. In the Tobacco Gallery, she will present her latest project, in which she will address the question of what artificial intelligence can learn from dogs.
The project builds on her findings resulting from practical research on the multidimensionality of canine imagination. Following Sašo Sedlaček, Mark Požlep, Jaša, Urša Vidic, Miha Štrukelj, Meta Grgurevič, Sanela Jahić, Boris Beja, and Nika Autor, the project is part of solo presentations that younger-generation Slovenian artists prepare especially for the exhibition space of the Tobacco Gallery.
