Meta Drčar is a Slovenian artist based in Paris. She graduated in art in 2009 from the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London and obtained her Master’s degree in dancing and performance in 2012 from London’s Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.

In her minimalist spatial installations, she frequently explores connections between the viewer’s moving body, sculpture, and architecture, as well as the performative impacts emerging from the process.

She has been the recipient of several work grants and residencies, such as the Art and Architecture Residency at Woning Van Wassenhove in Sint-Martens-Latem, Belgium (2021); ADP at the European Investment Bank Institute in Luxembourg (2020); and WWA Fabrikken in Copenhagen, Denmark (2020). In 2023, she was shortlisted for the Les Jardins d'Étretat site-specific art commission.
