Nina Oblak


Nina Oblak, often referred to as Nana Wolke(her artistic pseudonym), is a second-year student at the Academy of Visual Arts (A.V.A.) and a first-year student at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design (ALUO) in Ljubljana. Her series of drawings titled Women with Horse Heads questions the importance of belonging to the female sex today, when pushing into the private sphere, curtailing rights and repression, despite the achievements of the second wave of feminism, is subtly re-established under the pretext of a woman’s natural role in society. The works seek to actualize the question of the reasonableness of rejecting the generally accepted definition of women as the fairer sex as a whole or, on the other hand, the possibility of creating a completely new identity for future generations.
