Neja Tomšič is a visual artist whose interdisciplinary practice merges research with drawing, video, poetry and performance. By uncovering overlooked and often hidden stories from history, her passion is to rethink dominant historical narratives, research into particularities, and create situations where new understandings of the present can be formed. She has been performing the Tea for Five: Opium Clippers for the past five years in 11 countries. Her artist book, the Opium Clippers, was awarded Best Slovenian artist book in 2017/2018 and Best book design at the Slovenian Book Fair.

She is a founding member of the Nonument Group, an art collective that maps, archives and intervenes in forgotten, abandoned or demolished 20th-century monuments, public spaces and buildings, that have undergone a change in meaning. The Nonument Group was awarded the Plečnik Medal in 2021 for their contribution to the enrichment of architectural culture.
