The artist works in Slovenia and France.
Felle's artistic practice focuses around painting and media art. She investigates, stores, appropriates, and transforms visual references that she collects from the world of media to create new forms and images. She is interested in the content people consume and share as well as the shapeshifting of visual material depending on the context in which it is situated. In certain segments of her practice, Katja Felle is also interested in textile art. For her project Stop-Sew-Reset she received a bronze award at the prestigious 17th International Triennial of Tapestry in Łódź, Poland in 2022. For the artist, weaving is a metaphor for living and creating, through which people interact with others and transmit knowledge.
