Sašo Sedlaček’s was born in 1974 and is a Ljubljana-based artist whose primary interest are things that people overlook and the ways in which they can be made useful again. His work is generally defined by theories of disposal and the use and reuse of cheap technologies and waste materials. His practical and humorous works result from a subversive recycling of scientific, legal, or technological facts and employing DIY (do-it-yourself) and collaborative methods. Sedlaček has participated in numerous solo and group shows, including at the Secession in Vienna, the Sixth Taipei Biennial, the Museum of Modern Art in Ljubljana, the Ludwig Múzeum in Budapest, the October Salon in Belgrade, Ars Electronica in Linz, and the MUMOK in Vienna. Among the several awards he has received for his work are the OHO Group Award from the P.A.R.A.S.I.T.E. Institute in Ljubljana in cooperation with the Foundation for a Civil Society in New York, the SPAPORT award from the Museum of Contemporary Art in Banja Luka (2008), a Special Mention from the VIDA 11.0 awards in Madrid (2009). He has been an artist-in-residence at the ISCP in New York and IAMAS in Kyoto, Japan.
