The photography of Primož Bizjak (1976, Slovenia) explores the history of places, their limits and symbolic monuments as a reflection of our own society. Bizjak succeeds in creating photographs of such sublime beauty that they seem almost artificial. The framing of the photographs is key to his work, often requiring him to take risks by working from great heights or from positions of restricted access.
His work has been exhibited internationally in group shows in Spain, Slovenia, Croatia and Italy, where he participated in the 54th La Biennale di Venezia (2011) and at Isola Mondo, a collateral exhibition during the 53rd La Biennale di Venezia (2009). Recent solo shows include Alpi Apuane en Kulturni dom Nova Gorica (2020), Mudanzas y reflejos en Tasman Projects (Madrid, 2016), Primož Bizjak: The Sava, the Danube, and the Drina en el Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova (Ljubljana, 2015), Dos miradas sobre Venecia at the Instituto Italiano de Cultura de Madrid (2013); and Second chance – Elbasan, at the Torre di Porta Nuova in thel Arsenale of Venice (2012).
