My experience as a refugee influenced and shaped the content of my early artistic practice. Living through the Yugoslavian war has led me to create work that addresses themes of culture, immigration, and identity. These themes often connect to issues of conflict, discrimination, and the complexities of living in unfamiliar cultural environments. Lately I have been exploring socio-political issues related to injustice, the environment, and consumerism. In my practice, I capture visuals in nature and society, focusing on movement and presence within space. I bridge the concrete and abstract and experiment with time-based media techniques that result in performances, installations, and short films. By transforming visuals and sounds of real subject matter 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.
