of Slovene pavilion and the curator of the project presented.
She has been working in the field of contemporary art for
some years, researching the most innovative practices of international
contemporary art. She has specialised for the organisation
of the projects like actions, performances and exhibitions,

active participant. Her professor for contemporary art in
Venice was Giuseppe Mazzariol. Some of the projects she curated
are: Paura (project, organised with Oliviero Toscani for the
Benetton school Fabrica), Dressed House (Matej Andraž Vogrinčič
