This event was organised by the Embassy of Slovenia in London and supported by the Ministry of Culture of Slovenia

Until 15 March 2020

Nina Čelhar comes from a younger generation of Slovenian artists working in the field of painting. Her work centres on the current residential architecture and its philosophy of creating people’s ideal living spaces. In the exhibition To Dwell, she presents a selection of paintings form an on-going series exploring questions such as what do we require from our living space, what kind of residence offers us balance with the outside world and how much impact can a suitable space have. Through the subtle process of choosing the colours, she transforms her paintings into venues of tranquillity. Between the external and internal physical spaces, the viewer is led into a psychological space stripped of all tangible distractions, where one can pause in its serenity, focusing only on himself.

Nina Čelhar (1990) received master’s degree in painting from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design of the University of Ljubljana. She perfected her knowledge for a year at the Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst in Leipzig, Germany. She participated in many solo and group exhibitions in Slovenia and around Europe. In 2019, she was Artist in Residence of the Slovene Arts & Culture Residency in London, as well as taking part in residences in Italy and Croatia. Her works are part of several collections (inter alia ESSL, RIKO and Luciano Benetton Collection). She is represented by Ravnikar Gallery Space.
