Born in Ljubljana, Slovenia, 1973
Miha Strukelj // Rappresenta la Slovenia al Padiglione Sloveno alla Biennale di Venezia del 2009. La pratica pittorica di Strukelij è estremamente contemporanea. L’artista non dipinge scene reali ma scene reali lette su strumentazioni come quelle presenti sulle cloche degli elicotteri da combattimento o su strumenti diagnostici. La rilettura di queste scene punto per punto – o pixel per pixel – costituisce una pratica pittorica metodica e analitica al tempo stesso. Il dualismo che nel secolo scorso si è consumato fra pittura e fotografia, nel caso delle opere di Strukelij si materializza in un confronto fra realtà e scansione della stessa.
