Saša Nemec: My Teenage Angst Never Faded, I Am Still Rebelling
Interview by OUTSIDERS AT WORK
Saša Nemec is an independent artist working between Nova Gorica, Slovenia and Helsinki, Finland. Her practice spans between exploration of new technologies and use of age-old techniques – from mending a loose button to creating garments with 3D scanning technology. Since 2017 she has been a part of ‘Collective Intelligence’ with whom she presented projects in Helsinki and Palermo. Their latest project ‘Il Traffico’ was part of ‘Manifesta12 5x5x5 program’. She has continued to organise Repair-a-thons in Finland since 2016, firstly in the scope of Fashion Revolution Finland, then independently. She has collaborated with Designmuseo, Aalto University, Upcycling Design Center and Fashion Colloquium. OUTSIDERS AT WORK met Saša Nemec after the successful completion ‘Pixelache Festival 2019 – Breaking the Fifth Wall’ of which she was one of the artistic directors, to talk about the politics of textiles, Pixelache Festival and repairing for sustainable futures.
