Sašo Sedlaček is a prominent Slovenian multimedia and intermedia artist who uses new technologies in his art – electronic and information structures, connecting them with different disciplines into intriguing synergistic systems for the purpose of examining and provoking various topical social phenomena. The focal point of his artistic practice is the consideration of trash and its recycling as a new opportunity and resource, with the usage of low-cost technologies and open-source software. His investigative, avant-garde and ultimately original approach produces exceptionally imaginative, impressive and energetic works that reveal an interest in the communicative potential of artworks that the audience often actively participates in. At the exhibition in the Museum of Fine Arts, he will present a selection of works created in the past twenty years of his activity, which testify to an extremely intriguing and well-conceived artistic programme worth presenting to the Croatian public.
