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, injustice, and the complexity of living in a new environment. In my practice, I bridge the concrete and abstract and experiment with time-based media techniques that result in performances, installations, and short films. More specifically the visuals and sounds are drawn from the real world and then presented as abstractions. This approach enables me to foster positive social change by re-framing content in a way that encourages the viewer or participant to actively reflect on their role in society.
