Alen Floricic: Born in1968 in Pula, Croatia. Graduated Visual Arts at the Faculty of Pedagogy in Rijeka. Since 1997 he is Professor at the School for Applied Arts and Design in Pula. From the end of the ninties he works mainly in the field of instalational video art. In his video pieces he often uses simple and "banal" subjects (most often his own figure) as starting point for multiple time/frame manipulation. The final product, that is allways meant to be expirienced in a gallery/ installational situation, although highly artificial and in some way autistic, often has strong taste of humor and autoirony.
