Activist Robots by Oblak and Novak

Slovenian art duo Nika Oblak and Primoz Novak presenting their new work Activists, completed during a residency at the OCAT in Shenzhen, China.

Activists are mobile robots that occupy spaces and perform different actions, stepping up for a better society.

The work is currently on view in an exhibition Future Relevance, a parallel program of Shenzhen & Hong Kong Bi-city Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture.

Working together since 2002, Oblak and Novak use the mediums, techniques and visual languages of advertising while experimenting with new approaches to photography, video, installation, film, computer or robotics. They live and work in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
