Pepa Ivanova is an interdisciplinary artist and researcher based in Brussels. She is a HISK, Ghent Laureate (2017), holds an Advanced Master in Arts from LUCA, Brussels (2013), and an MA in Sculpture at the Royal Academy, Antwerp. While in Bulgaria, she studied Porcelain and Glass design at the National Art Academy, Sofia.

Her recent works question the epistemological values of numeric languages and their scientific and art translations. Fascinated by how to materialize temporality, she constructs decaying installations and composes light and sound experiences and physical scenarios to interact with.

Her work was exhibited at the BIOTOPIA group exhibition in Le Pavillon, Namur, iMAL, Brussels, Scopitone festival, Namur, KIKK festival Namur, Sofia Arsenal – Museum for Contemporary Art, and NOVA XX exhibition at Centre Wallonie-Brussels, Paris. In the last few years has exhibited at the Design Museum in Ghent, at KANAAL, Brussels, De Warande, Turnhout, Goethe Institute, Sofia and Thessaloniki, and Sofia City Gallery. She has performed at M HKA and De Singel, Antwerp, Z33, Hasselt, and CAMP Festival Stuttgart.

Pepa’s current research on the light on earth is supported by KIKK, Namur, and funded by the Wallonie Government, Belgium.

She is finishing her practice-based doctoral research on the sun-earth habitat at LUCA, Ghent/ KULeuven with a focus on autopoietics of observational data.
