Who is Eva Petric and what is she doing?
Simple questions, yet not so simple answers. This 24-year old artist, appearing in the past couple of months in a number of group exhibitions in Vienna as well as last month in a big solo exhibition under the title Tropheada at the Suppan contemporary gallery, was born in Slovenia. Yet she has spent most of her life all around the world and presently lives in Vienna. She graduated cum laude in psychology and art in Vienna (Webster University) two years ago, but she received her education on three continents, most influential (by her own words) in New York City. She has presented herself in Vienna (as well as in Slovenia, in Prague and in New York City) with her paintings and, mostly, art photography, but has also completed four full-length film scripts - for two of which she received grants from the Film Foundation of Slovenia. In 2006, Eva Petricˇ received the Cizˇek award for the best short musical video in 2006 in Slovenia, however, she is most proud of her first book of poems This space is a box, illustrated with her own art photography. It has recently been published by the Drava Verlag and presented by herself in Slovene, English and German among her Tropheada art photos at the gallery Suppan Contemporary.
