Dr. Vesna Petresin (born in Ljubljana, works and lives in London and Berlin) is a transdisciplinary artist and thinker. She has a practice as a time-architect, composing and performing with sound, light, rhythm, space, movement, text and code.
She has exhibited and performed at TATE MODERN, ARTBASEL MIAMI, ROYAL FESTIVAL HALL, ROYAL ACADEMY OF ARTS, VENICE BIENNALE, CANNES INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL, INSTITUTE OF CONTEMPORARY ARTS, LONDON, SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE, VIENNA SECESSION, WORLD ARCHITECTUREFESTIVAL and BEIJING ARCHITECTURE BIENNALE.
Currently a Visiting Fellow at GOLDSMITH and Director of the London-based art collective and think tank RUBEDO, she has lectured and published internationally (Springer, Thames & Hudson, Wiley Academy). Petresin’s practice explores embodiment, transformation, manipulation of time and movement, synaesthesia in syncretic art, alongside the barriers between the intimate and the public sphere. Using her voice and movement meditation, she constructs a trichotomy of structures: sound, image and light, exploring the concept of time in relation to body, movement, space and emotions.
