Artist collective Nika Oblak and Primoz Novak examine contemporary media and capital-driven society as they dissect its visual and linguistic structure.
With a touch of irony and the absurd their kinetic video installations question our values, our essence, exploring our relationship to advanced technologies and sharing the idea that we are becoming more and more caught in an automated and illusory routine. They reflect the prevailing perspective of individualism and how it diminishes community and solidarity.
Oblak and Novak have exhibited worldwide, in venues like the Sharjah Biennial (AE), Japan Media Arts Festival in Tokyo (JP), Istanbul Biennial (TR), Biennale Cuvee in Linz (AT), Transmediale in Berlin (DE), at the Alexandria Biennale for Mediterranean Countries (EG), and the FILE in Sao Paulo (BR). They have received numerous grants and awards, including the CYNETART Award by the Trans-Media-Akademie Hellerau in Dresden (DE).
