Artist Statement

Living through the war in Yugoslavia and consequently, displacement, has shaped the content of my artistic practice. The displacement I experienced has led me to create work that addresses themes of culture and identity. These themes often connect to issues of conflict, immigration, injustice, and the complexities of living in unfamiliar cultural environments. In my practice, I bridge the concrete and abstract and experiment with time-based media techniques that result in performances, installations, and short films. By capturing visuals and sounds of real subject matter and transforming and presenting them as abstract materials, I re-frame content to encourage viewers to reconsider their own contexts in nature and in society, inviting the imagination to dissolve static notions of being.
