KOLEKTIVA is a group of three contemporary visual artists based in Ljubljana, Slovenia: Vesna Bukovec (1977), Lada Cerar (1974) and Metka Zupanič (1977).
We started to work together as informal group in 2002. In 2008 we decided to form a group KOLEKTIVA in order to make a bigger division between our individual and our collective work. All of us also work as individual artists. We have all graduated from Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana in 2002. Metka Zupanič and Vesna Bukovec received MA in 2005 and 2006 at the same Academy.
In our group projects we are focused into research of inter-personal relationships, everyday life and the art system. Individuals, art public, passerby or specially target groups represent an important role in our work. We invite them to take an active part in the creative process and become co-authors of the work. We understand the process of art making as a means of negotiation, exchange and cooperation.
