Natália Trejbalová (Košice, Slovakia, 1989) lives and works in Milan. She studied painting at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Bologna and later, in Milan, cinema and video at Scuola di Nuove Tecnologie dell’Arte di Brera.
Her multidisciplinary artistic practice leaves no space for boundaries between the media, using the same approach whether it be video, object, drawing, photography, performance and more. In her latest films explores through the possibilities of science fiction and speculative world-making our individual perception of global-scale transformations, possible future interspecies relations and changes in the planetary environment.
