Zora Janković was born in 1978 in Ljubljana, Slovenia. She has lived and worked in Berlin since 2008.

From 1998 to 2001 she studied at the Istituto Europeo di Design in Rome and from 2004 to 2008 at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Venice. There she completed her studies with a diploma in sculpture under Prof Andrea Grassi. From 2010 to 2015, she studied at the Kunsthochschule Weißensee in Berlin and graduated with a diploma in sculpture under Prof Albrecht Schäffer. She graduated as a master student in 2016.

She has been working as a freelance artist since 2015.
She works mainly with the media of sculpture and photography, whose complex working processes form the initial starting point. The three-dimensional geometric moulding, the architectural fragment and its spatial structure are at the forefront of her artistic exploration. The contrasts between open and closed forms, their materiality and the relationship between mass and space also play an important role in her work. Her works are regularly represented in group and solo exhibitions.
