Nada Prlja

Nada Prlja’s work deals with the complex situations of inequality and injustice in societies, ranging from political to economic issues. Using different media, her projects are multi-layered, site or condition-specific. She works mainly in (video)installation, live and public art. Prlja’s practice is site or context-specific and challenges critical discourse around issues of current politics, nationalism, human rights, migration, or the transition of ex-socialist countries. Nada Prlja represented The Republic of North Macedonia at the 58th La Biennale di Venezia in 2019 with her project entitled Subversion to Red. She has previously participated in the 7th Berlin Biennale, Berlin, Manifesta 8, Murcia, 5th Moscow Biennale, (Film Program), Moscow; IV Bienal del Fin del Mundo de Arte Contemporáneo,Chile and Argentina, among others. Her solo exhibitions were hosted by the Museum of Contemporary Art, Skopje; FUTURA, Prague; National Gallery of Macedonia, Skopje, etc.  Prlja co-initiated the independent project space SIA gallery with Daniel Serafimovski (architect and educator) in 2013 in Skopje, with the intention of engaging with and internationally supporting the North Macedonia cultural scene, as well as promoting cultural exchanges with neighbouring countries.
