Robertina Šebjanič is an artist whose work explores the biological, chemical, political and cultural realities of aquatic environments and the impact of humanity on other organisms. Her projects call for the development of empathetic strategies aimed at recognising the rights of other (non-human) species. In her analysis of the Anthropocene and its theoretical framework, the artist uses the terms “aquatocene” and “aquaforming” to refer to the human impact on aquatic environments.
Her work encompasses immersive installations, AV performances, workshops that tackle philosophical questions of our society to the understanding of living systems and their interaction with the environment. Her ideas and concepts are often developed in collaboration with others, through interdisciplinary integration.
