Sara Bezovšek (1993) is a Slovenian visual artist. Primarily studying and working as a graphic designer, her other interests include photography, new media and video art. She graduated in Visual Communications at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design of the University of Ljubljana, where she is currently finishing her master’s degree. Her main focus is on the impact that the Internet culture, online social media and the desktop interface have on the visual culture today. Her current research aims to portray the internet as a living space, using its bits and pieces and thus embracing, with the visual awareness of an artist, a remix culture that has become a genuine, generational means of expression and communication. She has participated in various group exhibitions, including Razumeti fotografijo, Mikado Gallery, Ljubljana (2013), 100 years of Leica, Dubrovnik (2014), Bodi črka – postani beseda!, Vodnikova domačija, Ljubljana (2015), ALUO LXX. Preteklost, sedanjost, prihodnost, Jakopič Gallery, Ljubljana (2016), AAVV All That Happens Must Be Known, Vn Gallery, Zagreb (2018). In 2018 she was awarded The Prešeren Award from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design, for the Mobile Application ZNAM.
