Ana Pečar is video and intermedia artist. She achieved formal education on Corcoran School of art and University of Maribor and gained additional skills on numerous workshops and residencies. Her work was exhibited through the US, Europe and Asia, most notably at Ars Electronica Linz, NAO - Nuovi autori oggi / New artist today Milano, Singapore International Photography Festival, India Art Consult New Delhi, Gallery Apart Rome, Franklin Street works Stamford CT...

She initiated Coexamination group that was engaged in social criticism through artistic performances, public interventions and open debates. Reflecting on noise pollution, a performance was held in a steel factory where the anvil was used as a main rhythmical instrument. The group's work was presented at Ars electronica in Linz. Through 2006-07 Ana Pečar collaborated with Berlin based group BBM (=observers of operators of machines) in the project »technologies of political control«. From 2013 onwards she cooperates with Oliver Ressler. They create platforms for exposing unsolved questions of protagonists that open into universal issues. Their work was exhibited in US, Italy, India, Canada and Croatia. 

In her video work the social commentary is much more subtle and intertwines with mythologies and composed artistic spaces and imagined symbolism. Pečar's videos are part of Carinthian regional museum collection, Slovene video archive (DIVA station), European Archives of Media Art, and online Earth water catalogue (an artistic initiative to raise awareness, understanding and appreciation of water, initiated by Uwe Laysiepen – Ulay).

Ana Pecar was admitted to a three-year project (2010-2011) in Milano – NAO (=New authors today), aimed at supporting young talented artists in the process of creating multimedia works. An intermedia performance, derived from the program was presented at Tec art tecco performing festival in Milano and International computer festival in Maribor. She created a piece for a dancer and technology “Digital commune” performed in Ljubljana, Belgrade and Skopje and participated in a three hour long performance online and live with Slovene’s topmost artists from diverse creative fields “trasmittance#2”.

As a live video performer Pečar appeared on many local and international venues and won the national competition in vj-ing in 2006.

She regularly publishes art and creativity related articles and (video) interviews.

Ana Pečar received Government of Styria Stipend, Leon Levy foundation grant, Roberto Cimetta grant, Leonardo da Vinci grant and a full year stipend (2012) from the Ministry of Culture of Slovenia.
