Andrej Beštak &
Anja Leko (HR)
Andrej Beštak and Anja Leko are an artist duo born in Zagreb, Croatia. Their artistic practice includes installation, performance, and video works, but overall it depends on the topic that they are interested in at the moment. They mostly consider themselves storytellers in spaces using visual language and sounds rather than words to create an emotional dialog between the artwork and the audience. They like to take paths that are light, goofy, and sometimes cartoony to tell stories that they find serious and possibly heavy to digest. They are interested in urban mythologies, spiritual experiences, techno music, club culture, individualism, materialism, heavy industry, collective memory, body, oblivion, future of the body, virtuality, object/subject relationship, and things like that. They both hold a Master’s degree in Fine Arts from the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb, Croatia. They are working as an artist duo since 2020 and have exhibited in solo and group exhibitions, participated in artist residencies, and got awarded for their work.
