Noemi Veberič Levovnik

Noemi Veberič Levovnik (b. 1985, Slovenia) is an interdisciplinary artist working with performance art, sound, text and moving image. Noemi completed her Master's in contemporary visual art, cinema and new media in Paris and Quimper, France. She is currently based in Berlin.

Noemi Veberič Levovnik was born in 1985 in Yougoslavia, which 6 years later became Slovenia.

During her turbulant childhood she was already very artistically active and this child is still very present in her performances and interactions with the audience. In her wild highschool years she immersed herself in the cinematic culture, started making her own videos, wrote a movie script for a lesbian love story, wrote numerous poems during mathemathics lessons and performed them in the Poetry events she organised in the squats of Metelkova, while also drawing and painting at the visual arts Highschool she attended in Ljubljana. She moved to France at age of 18 to pursue a year of work in the field of theatre as an actress and scenography/costume designer with the group La Strada in Troyes. Later she completed a Bachelor with Major in Film and Minor in Visual Arts at the University Paris 8 (while working a lot with video - here, and drawing - here). She pursued the developpement of her artistic practice into predominantly video art and installation at the Ecole d’Art de Quimper, where she obtained her DNSEP in 2011 - presenting installations and an artist book/diploma Chambres et Hors Chambres. In 2013 she graduated from a Contemporary Art and new Media Masters at the University Paris 8, writing about her creative practice - the creative process, the characters, the narratives and the spaces that appear in her artistic work (you can read or see more of that here).

Since 2013 she has been freelancing as a visual artist and performer and has also had a number of odd jobs on the site (most of which involved teaching or disciplining someone).

Since 2014 she has explored the medium of live art through many solo performances, has directed shows, worked as assistant theatre director and actress.

Her artistic practice continues to be interdisciplinary at its core. It contains drawing, painting, installation, sound and music, photography, performance and video.

Noemi is currently working between Berlin and Slovenia.
