Ištvan Išt Huzjan’s works are extraordinarily original in form, constantly flirting with the sphere of the ephemeral and thus interrogating the mechanisms and representational sphere of contemporary visual art. His work attempts to recognize his own childhood in search of the ‘unconscious’, a state of being that is one of the most crucial engines driving his artistic practice. Since 2013, he has run an exhibition space in Brussels called Coffre Fort together with Gregoire Motte and Thibaut Espiau; collectively they are known as the Artists Club.

Huzjan has participated in several residencies, including Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten in Amsterdam, National Art Studio in Changdong in Seoul, and the Apartment of the Ministry of Culture of Slovenia in New York. In 2010 he co-founded the artist collective Project Goleb in Amsterdam. He was twice nominated for the OHO Award in Slovenia in 2011 and 2014 and in 2013 was awarded the Fernand Baudin Prijs in Belgium. Recent solo exhibitions include Lesorez / Woodcut at Galerija Gregor Podnar, Ljubljana; You & Me, We & You at Ricou Gallery, Brussels; and From Here To There at ŠKUC Gallery, Ljubljana. His recent group exhibitions include the 31. Biennial of Graphic Arts – Over You /  You at MGLC, Ljubljana and South by Southeast at Osage Gallery, Hong Kong.
