ARTIST BIO

Born in 1972 in the city of Banja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina. In the early 90's came to live in between various locations in the Netherlands. After receiving MA in 2000 from the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam, awarded the first prize for film and video, de Prix de Rome 2002. Throughout 2004 and 2005 participated in the residency de Rijksakademie in Amsterdam. In 2010 initiated the artist-led space Goleb and from 2015 is co-organizing Klupko - Room(s) & Daily Art Situations, both in Amsterdam.

 

STATEMENT

An intertwining of the intimate and the political, and re-opening of the everyday onto history, are the key concerns of my art practice. My investigations link the personal as well as collective experiences, protagonists and circumstances, histories retold and events that have occurred since. The ambition here is to recreate a form of fused subjectivity, a visual and textual drift that reformulates itself through the other and the time. With this, it is the 'cinematic thinking' that enables me to travel in time and to track and capture the interplay of shared past, daily coexistence and things to come.

I work in the media of video, writing, drawing, painting and print that occasionally come together in a spatial installation.
