Iza Štrumbelj Oblak


Iza Štrumbelj Oblak (1997) works within performative and participatory practices. Drawing inspiration from her everyday needs and desires, her projects serve as a tool for engaging with society, fulfilling aspirations, and confronting fears. By bringing art into public spaces, she aims to encourage people to question their way of living and expand the boundaries of what is possible and enjoyable.

Iza struggles to keep up with her master's studies demands of various tasks. She calls artists Lea Topolovec and Yana Deliyska, who have recently graduated to help her get there too. Blurring the line between the project’s narrative and real life, they engage in a family role-play, as guiding figures for their off-track child. Lea, the mother, believes the solution always lies within ourselves and nature, while Yana as father advocates for discipline and physical activity. Together, they will try to send Izi on the right path, hoping she will find what works for her somewhere in the middle.
